I’m not a coffee drinker. Never have been. It makes me race and jitter and get all clammy and stressed, all things I actively try to avoid on a daily basis. I do, however, love tea. The ritual of having a warming, soothing hot drink (especially in these months of indecisive weather patterns) is heaven to me. Sitting down, slowly sipping away and kick-starting my day calmly, nicely, quietly.
This about sums up my day (but replace the drawing rainbows part with writing about things I love and the dancing freely bit with yoga. I’m a shocking dancer!)…
So back to the tea. I’ve been asked a few times about what herbal teas I recommend. I’d always suggested Pukka, because they’re incredibly tasty, but I’ve recently come across another brand called Higher Living , which is great for specialised blends like Ginger Kick, Vitality and Evening.
Higher Living is an English-based company that has been making specialised tea blends for over 45 years. They tick all the boxes including 100% certified organic, contain only natural herbs, and, for the most part are caffeine free (the Vitality blend contains caffeine). They’re also packed with gorgeous flavours that you can actually taste and are really reasonable, each box is only $3.69 and for that you get 15 bags. Want to track them down? Just take a look down the tea aisle at Woolies and they should be there. If not, check the organic/health aisle instead.
My pick is the Ginger Kick (I love the warm spiciness of this tea) and the Vitality, which contains orange peel, green mate (pronounced mat-ay), warm all-spice and cinnamon. This one is a winner if you get the 3pm sugar craving and need something to curb it. It will give you that same boost without the slump at the end.
So, if you’re looking for a delicious herbal tea, I think I’ve just found it.
Tell me Happies…
