In this article, we'll explore the best teas to enjoy when it's cold outside, so you can stay warm and nourished all winter long. The best part to start, we carry 1 & 2 in the same blend!
1. Chamomile Tea
Known for its calming properties, chamomile tea is the perfect choice for a chilly evening. It can help soothe your nerves and promote better sleep, making it an excellent bedtime beverage.

2. Peppermint Tea
If you're looking for a tea that will warm you up and invigorate your senses, peppermint tea is the way to go. The menthol in peppermint leaves provides a refreshing and cooling sensation, making it ideal for relieving congestion and soothing sore throats. It's also a great option for improving digestion and reducing bloating.
3. Ginger Tea
When it's cold outside, ginger tea can be a real lifesaver. Ginger has natural warming properties that can help increase circulation and keep you feeling cozy. It's also known for its anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits, making it a great choice for soothing an upset stomach or relieving muscle pain.

5. Green Tea
While green tea is often associated with warm weather, it can also be enjoyed during the colder months. Green tea is rich in antioxidants called catechins, which have been shown to boost metabolism and promote weight loss. Additionally, the caffeine in green tea can provide a gentle energy boost to help you stay alert on those dark winter mornings.
