As all tea lovers know, there is something uniquely comforting about cozying up with a fragrant, steaming mug of your favorite brew. That is especially true during the fall, when the cooler weather invites us to slow down, turn inward, and enjoy the moment. Tea is more than just a soothing beverage, though. Adding herbal tea to your daily routine is a small change that may have big benefits in supporting your emotional and physical well-being.
Top 6 Reasons to Love Tea
- Tea is easy to make. In the time it takes to boil a kettle of water, plus a few more minutes to steep, your tea is ready to enjoy.
- Tea is a convenient way to consume herbs. Tea is good hot or iced, so it's appealing during any season. It's also portable. Prepare it at home and pour into a to-go container or take a handful of tea bags to your office or anywhere there's hot water available.
- Tea helps you be mindful. Many people find sitting down with a steaming cup of tea makes them feel instantly calm and peaceful. It's like the world slows down for a few minutes when you take a tea break.
- Tea comes in a variety of delicious flavors. Do you like earthy flavors, delicate notes, or fruity tastes? The good news is Gaia Herbs has a full line of herbal teas to choose from. Try a few and you're sure to find one you'll love.
- Tea is good for you. There's a Gaia Herbs tea to support many different conditions, whether you are having difficulty nursing, prone to digestive discomfort, concerned about the health of your heart, or looking for a daily ritual to help center yourself.*
- Tea is a healthy alternative to coffee or soda. Getting into the habit of drinking herbal tea is a big help if you're trying to cut your intake of sugar, artificial sweeteners, or caffeine. All Gaia Herbs teas are caffeine-free, and you control how much and what kind of sweetener to add!
