by The Tea Haus

Do you feel that? There’s a crisp bite to the air and the smell of pumpkin spice wafting over school campuses across the country. We can hear the faint sound of students groaning as they wake up for their morning lectures and the rustle of heavy sweaters being unpacked from the back of closets everywhere. The most marvellous time of the year is here for tea lovers as we prepare to hibernate with a hot cup and brace ourselves for another Canadian winter!

Fall can make us feel cozy and content but it can also usher in a greater risk of the cold and flu and other back-to-school stressors. We want you to feel ready to take on the school year full of energy, so we thought up the best five teas for the back to school season to make your seasonal transition as easy and delicious as possible.

1. Tulsi Tea (Holy Basil)

Feeling overwhelmed by your syllabus? Holy basil is commonly used in ayurvedic medicine for stress relief.

Pour yourself a cup of Tulsi and look forward to the following benefits.

Benefits of Tulsi Tea:
