Want to escape for a minute? Try Stash Tea’s Breakfast in Paris. This lavender and bergamot black tea will help you wake up and transport you to the Champs-Élysées before you dive into your day.
Not a morning person? Need an extra boost to get you out of bed? Try Davidson’s Organic Teas’ Energize . This adaptogenic tea blend balances green tea, yerba mate, and guayusa to give you that perfect caffeine zing.
Late Morning Boost
The thrill of putting on a clean sweatshirt has worn off, you’ve answered a mountain of emails, and maybe even taken a zoom meeting or two. You need a warm mug to tide you over until lunch. Try Boost from Tea Drops - this blend of matcha, ginger, and lemon will help keep your mind focused. Plus, it’s super easy to make. Or, try Miracle Tree Orange Passionfruit Moringa Energy Infusion, a super caffeinated blend to help you power through.
Even if you’re working from home, you should take the time to unplug and enjoy your lunch. Cook up a nourishing meal and have a delicious cup of tea. We recommended Chico Chai’s Original Chai, with warm spices that are great for digestion, or Organic India’s Tulsi Peppermint for a refreshing cup.
The day is dragging on, your pets are sitting on top of your keyboard in an attempt to stop you from working, and your bed is so close but you can’t take a nap. You need tea. Copper Cup’s Turmeric Latte mixes with warm milk for a frothy, caffeine-free afternoon pick me up that will have you feeling your best for the rest of the day. If you still need some caffeine in the afternoon, try August Uncommon Tea’s Combray. It’s a green tea flavored with vanilla and cardamom.
End of Day Treat
We all deserve a treat at the end of the day for a job well done. Enjoy Teeccino’s Snickerdoodle, for a warm cookie taste. Or, if you’re more of a chocoholic, enjoy a dark and cocoa forward cup of MiCacao’s Cacao Tea.
When you’ve been working inside the same space all day, it can be difficult to wind down and go to sleep at night. By creating a calming nighttime tea ritual, you can put yourself in the right headspace for a good night’s sleep. Teamotions Enjoy Rest is a blend of cinnamon, apple, and chamomile, plus ashwagandha for stress relief. Or try DAVIDsTEA Serenity Now, a tasty blend of lavender (for calm) and spearmint (for rejuvenation). Plus, sweet flavors like strawberry, rosehip, and hibiscus combine to make this a cup sure to send you off into dreamland, ready to face the next day.
