Steepster Select: Back To Work Teas
Summer is behind us and it’s back to work, school - the real life. But have no fear, tea is the perfect source of energy, focus, and relaxation! This month we were curious about finding teas that foster positive mental states. Good news, we found them!
Some are invigorating to get you going in the morning, and some are better for helping you maintain your afternoon focus. We even found a relaxing, bed time brew. And the best part? They are all delicious! We had a blast finding teas at the intersection of delicious brews and functional elixirs. We hope you enjoy! And if you are not a member, sign up here.
Now on to the teas!
A traditionally baked oolong from the birthplace of this style of tea: Fujian. Why it’s in the box: Battling that after lunch energy drain? Iron Goddess Oolong is known to aid in digestion and help keep blood sugar stable.
A rich and invigorating black tea from Southern China. Why it’s in the box: Zhejiang black teas are fully oxidized which means they’re full bodied, rich, and pack a good punch of caffeine. Use this as a coffee substitute in the morning or afternoon.
A robust green tea with plenty of body. A prime example of spring picked green tea. Why it’s in the box: Green tea contains theanine which promotes relaxed focus and energy so you can stay on task.
A blend of several soothing herbs and flowers brews up with plenty of flavor and a lovely fresh aroma. Why it’s in the box: Try a cup before bed and sleep like a baby: nettle, clover, and peppermint are sure to relax even the most stressed.
A unique “new world” tea, grown outside Asia in the sunny fields of Wangaratta, Australia. Why it’s in the box: A concentrated source of antioxidants and theanine promote focused energy without feeling “strung out”.
