Our favorite brands to enjoy this spring and all year long!
Simply stated, spa and tea are just two things that go hand-in-hand. So naturally, we have a lot of opinions on the matter.
Health and wellness gurus often suggest tea as less-caffeinated version of coffee to get your morning going. The health benefits are aplenty, including possible help with weight-loss, improved bone mineral density and even UV protection. For most, tea is a little luxury to sit back and enjoy every day. These particular brands are our ‘cup of tea,’ (pun intended), and we say stock up so you can sip in peace all spring long:
Numi Organic Tea has you covered, no matter your craving. The flavors in their collection range from typical (Green, Matcha), to indulgent and sweet (Chocolate Mint), to savory and delicious (Spinach Chive). The most unique offering is a tea made by fermentation, called Pu-erh Tea, which is rich and smooth with a bold flavor to boot.
White Lion actually started out with an Iced Tea that is still today, with over a dozen popular flavors in circulation. From there, of course, the brand ventured into warm teas, our favorite being the Raspberry Truffle! Plus, White Lion offers you a simple way to sweeten, with classic honey pearls. It offers the sweetness of honey without the mess, because it’s in the form of sugar. Brilliant!
Mighty Leaf Tea prides itself on their handcrafted tea blends and high standards when it comes to ingredients. The tea pouches are specially created leaving extra space for the tea to unfurl, in eco-friendly compostable bags. Plus, the wide-range of tea varieties offered by Mighty Leaf can’t be beat!
Probably one of the most luxe, popular tea brands on the market, now owned by Starbucks, Teavana even has its own tea bar in NYC. Those not located in the Big Apple, however, easily enjoy Teavana’s rich blends from the comfort of their couch with its innovative infusers and teamakers.
