Tea for a morning boost! If you’re avoiding coffee for any reason, go for the heavy hitters — we like Matcha as well as black teas like English Breakfast and Earl Grey. We also sometimes make our coffee functional by adding nourishing botanicals into our French press, for instance our founder Jennie often adds a handful of Nettle or Oat Tops into her coffee.
Morning recommendations: Matcha, English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling or nourishing botanicals like Oat Tops & Nettles
For us, lunchtime iced tea is a good way to sneak in vitamins while drinking something delicious. A hibiscus iced tea is rich in vitamin c — and a simple green iced tea hydrates the body while adding antioxidants to your daily routine.
Lunchtime iced tea recommendations: Hibiscus Tea, Sencha, Pan-fired Green, Lemongrass,
Depending on how you’re feeling, the afternoon is great for an energy infusion, or for a blend that alleviates stress. If you’re looking for a boost, reach for matcha or Yerba mate. If you can’t handle one more Zoom meeting without taking the edge off, try a blend that includes calming lemon balm, and focus-improving ginger or peppermint.
Afternoon recommendations for energy: Matcha, Yerba Mate, Black Teas
Afternoon recommendations for taking the edge off while still remaining focused: Lemon Balm, Ginger, Peppermint, Vanilla
