Fall is the coziest season of all and there isn’t anything better than cuddling up with a warm drink. But in a world full of pumpkin spice latte’s, tea is often forgotten. Tea is one of the healthiest and most naturally delicious drinks you can choose to have. If you’re not a tea drinker, this is the perfect time to give it a try. I’ve compiled my 5 favorite varieties and the benefits they provide to help you stay warm all season long.
The combination of cinnamon and vanilla are perfect for the colder months. This tea straight up tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal! The variety was formulated to rejuvenate and moisturize your skin, which is much needed as the weather becomes cooler. Being caffeine free, you can enjoy it any time of day or specifically when your skin needs some extra help.
This tea is absolutely perfect for Autumn; it tastes like apple cider! Unlike cider this variety is 0 calories, boosts your energy, and supports an active lifestyle. It contains caffeine and is a great coffee replacement in the crisp mornings.
This detoxification tea is absolutely delicious; it is the perfect balance between fruity and sweet. It supports healthy digestion, eliminates toxins, and works great if you’re trying to shed a few extra pounds. Even though it is caffeine free, I usually start every morning with this healthy drink. Healthy Fasting has quickly become an all-time favorite tea of mine!
By now, we all know that green tea has amazing health benefits. There are hundreds of varieties to choose from but my go-to is formulated to additionally aid in muscle recovery. This variety is not as bitter as traditional green tea, contains caffeine, and is a wonderful way to hydrate after a long workout.
Honey and lavender mixed together in a steaming hot cup of tea is beyond soothing. Anytime you need to take a break or de-stress, drink this. Aside from being ultra calming, this variety is both floral and sweet; another all-time favorite! It is caffeine free and perfect to have before bedtime.
If tea tends to be too bitter for your taste there are healthy ways to sweeten it. I highly suggest investing in local raw honey which is the only thing I add to my tea. Raw honey is an antioxidant that supports digestive health and strengthens the immune system. You can usually find this type of honey at local farmer’s market.
