Healthy tea habits for the New Year

It’s a time of reflection and action.

Many of us take the opportunity with the New Year beginning to start new, healthy habits. Habits can be easy to create when they include something delicious and good for you. Or you can create a simple morning tea ritual to start your day off right.

This year, we encourage you to deepen your exploration of healthy teas and infusions. Pick a new category to explore and have fun on your 2018 tea journey!

A great green tea is as enjoyable as it is healthy with quite a variety to choose from – whole leaf to powdered matcha. Green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse full of benefits and deliciousness. The act of preparing and drinking tea can be contemplative and rewarding. Jasmine Pearls are beautiful to watch unfurl and sweet and slightly earthy to sip. Whisking matcha slows you down and gives you a moment to pause or reflect. These are beneficial teas and great to add to your habits for the New Year.

Smooth, delicate, ethereal white teas are known for their high antioxidant levels as well. White tea is very simply processed. It’s plucked and dried, either in the sun or with hot air. What makes white teas special is the plants used to produce them. Traditional white teas are grown from a limited number of tea varietals in China.


Rooibos, a plant from South Africa, brews up a fantastic healthy drink. With a fruity and woodsy, mellow taste, it is enjoyed as a naturally caffeine-free herbal infusion. Rooibos contains flavonoids and is used for its anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties. Rooibos also is loaded with polyphenols and may benefit the digestive system.

Honeybush, another plant native to South Africa, is naturally caffeine free. It is a satisfying way to keep your body well hydrated and may be used to help alleviate digestive problems. Its flavor deepens the more time you allow it to steep; it has a somewhat spicy flavor with a hint of honey and a sweet aftertaste.


Made with the calyx of the hibiscus plant (the base of the flower), hibiscus tisanes are bold, tart and full of flavor. Hibiscus is a longtime favorite throughout the Caribbean and is gaining favor with Baby Boomers as a potential way to promote heart health. They are rich in antioxidants and full of vitamin C, so it is the perfect hot drink for when you’re down with a cold. Hibiscus tisanes may aid in support of the immune system, stimulate metabolism, and may increase energy levels. We have a large variety of hibiscus fruit tisanes; any would be a great addition to your diet and daily habits in the new year.

Known as the “Drink of the Gods” and native to the subtropical forests of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Bolivia, yerba mate is becoming more and more popular in North America. Traditionally, it’s poured into a gourd, or guampa, and sipped through a metal straw called a bombilla. The level of caffeine is high in Yerba Mate, but because of its chemical makeup, it is easier tolerated by those sensitive to coffee and colas. It is known to fight free radicals and eliminate toxins and is a recommended way to increase your energy naturally.

For the purest teas possible, try our organic teas. Tea and tisanes offer a lot of great choices to help make those New Year’s healthy habits easier to create. Cheers!
