I’m a herbal tea aficionado; you’ll rarely see me without a mug of herbal tea in one hand. I have you covered in this post for your morning brew, your afternoon pick-me-up and your after-dinner tummy settler. Read on for my top picks!
Pukka Supreme Matcha Green, £2.29 for 20 teabags on ocado.com
This is my go-to green tea: it gives me such a boost in the afternoon without having to reach for an Americano, and it tastes really good. I find that I can get a good two cupfuls of tea out of each teabag too, which makes the pack last even longer!
Pukka Organic Three Ginger, £1.99 for 20 teabags on ocado.com
I love this tea for when my stomach is feeling a little unsettled or I’ve overeaten. It instantly calms me, while the zingy taste of the ginger (it packs a punch, it can even begin to taste quite spicy!) uplifts me.
Twinings Pure Peppermint, £4.59 for 80 teabags on ocado.com
I don’t often go for a mint tea, but when I do, it’s this Twinings classic one. I find it isn’t overwhelmingly minty which I really appreciate, but you do get a sense of freshness after drinking this – a great palate cleanser.
Clipper Snore & Peace, £2.05 for 20 teabags on ocado.com
This is the best tea for before sleep/if you are having trouble sleeping and are up in the middle of the night and want a warm, calming drink. I find it does actually work and really helps me wind down before I hit the hay. It does taste a little strange in my opinion, but it is totally drinkable and I do believe it is effective.
Clipper Organic Decaf Green Tea, £1.99 for 20 teabags on ocado.com
When I want the antioxidant benefits of green tea a little later in the day without the caffeine kick, this tea does the job perfectly. It tastes really good too, plus it’s organic!
Tick Tock Organic Rooibos Tea, £3.70 for 80 teabags on ocado.com
I got into Rooibos tea when I visited South Africa last year, and since then I have been loving it as my afternoon drink of choice with a sweet treat. It has a delicate yet full-bodied flavour and is delicious with milk as a naturally caffeine-free alternative to your typical English Breakfast or Earl Grey.
Pukka Original Chai, £1.99 for 20 teabags on ocado.com
I’ve recently become a fan of chai tea, but I have encountered difficulties finding one which isn’t packed with sugar. This tea tastes delicious with or without milk and is incredibly warming and comforting.
Yogi Tea Stomach Ease, £2.49 on ocado.com
If I’m beginning to feel under the weather or my digestion isn’t feeling on point and I feel the need for something a little more heavy-duty and less spicy than Pukka’s Three Ginger, I head straight for this tea. I find it really does aid my digestion, while making me feel warm from the inside out.
