There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to start your day. But there’s also no better feeling than enjoying a soothing cup of tea before going to sleep…. But there’s also nothing better than an afternoon pick-me-up cup of tea.
The right cup of tea can be just what you need at any point in the day. The question is figuring out which teas drink best as the day progresses. Whether you’re looking for a coffee replacement or just want to start drinking more tea in general, finding and establishing a daily tea schedule is a great way to reap the benefits of different loose leaf teas. To help make the right decisions at the right time, here are the best teas for the morning, noon and night.
Morning Teas to Help Wake Up and Feel Energized
Consuming the right morning beverage is a great way to start your day. That’s because after a night’s sleep it’s important to rehydrate your body and get your brain functioning after a night’s sleep. While many people will often choose coffee as their morning drink, tea lovers would obviously rather have a warm cup of tea. Although a cup of tea may not contain as much caffeine as the average cup of joe, there is still plenty to go around to wake you up and feel energized.
Breakfast Teas are all different versions of black teas. Black teas — like the Tea Haus’s English Breakfast — are the more common choice as a morning tea. That’s because its ingredients are extremely oxidized and flavourful, making it the most caffeinated. Each regular cup of black tea contains between 60-90mg of caffeine.
If you can’t decide which type of black tea you like best, try our Black Tea Sampler. This sampler allows you to experience a taste of our Tea Haus Breakfast Blend, Scottish Breakfast, Ceylon OP, and Darjeeling Mim.
Afternoon Teas to Boost Energy and Focus
Getting energized throughout the day doesn’t always have to include coffee. Before you mid-day slump kicks in, enjoy a cup of green tea. Green tea is known to be an energy booster as it contains antioxidants, caffeine, amino acids as well as vitamins, minerals and fibre. What’s more, drinking green tea after lunch can help boost your metabolism, decrease inflammation and increase focus.
Tea Haus’ Green Tea Sampler is a great way to try some of our most popular green tea blends to help boost your afternoon energy. The Green Tea Sampler contains four of our best-selling green teas: Organic China Green, Jasmine China Green, Sencha Green, or Kyoto Cherry Rose.
Evening Teas For Sleep and Relaxation
While people will often turn to sleep-inducing medication to help with sleep and relaxation, there are many blends that contain ingredients known to help you relax and sleep naturally. The Tea Haus offers a number of different herbal tisanes to suit your sleeping needs.
Chamomile is most commonly known as a calming, sleep-inducing herb. That’s because it contains an antioxidant ingredient called apigenin that is known for its calming effects. Not only does Chamomile help you sleep, but it is also known to decrease anxiety and improve sleep quality over time making it the perfect nighttime tea.
A good alternative to chamomile, this Goodnight Irene is known as Tea Haus’ tasty sleeping aid. Goodnight Irene’s herbal infusion contains valerian root, which is an ingredient known to make you sleepy. Drink this about half an hour before going to sleep as its ingredients kick in quick.
Peppermint Tisanes Perfect for Any Time
Finding the right beverage to drink in the morning, afternoon and night is a great way to structure your tea intake and get the most out of each blend. But what’s also important is finding a type of tea or tisane that you can defer to at any point of the day.
Full of flavour and organically grown, our organic peppermint is perfect for all hours of the day. Not only is it good for your immune system, but it’s a great way to help with digestion after a meal as the oils stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach helping relieve gas pains. Oh, and it also has a lovely, soothing menthol flavour. Try the Tea Haus’ Organic Peppermint.
