It’s a well know fact that the beginning of the year can be a tough time for lots of people. The festive celebrations are over, we’ve all probably eaten and drank too much and everyone is just feeling a little unhealthy.

Now is the perfect time to reassess your lifestyle and look at how you can improve your physical and mental wellbeing. This is where tea comes in. I’m a huge tea fan, I love the fact that it can help to aid and repair your body. 

Every tea has different benefits and I find it really interesting to learn about the different herbs, hence why I’m training to be a Master Herbalist. Below is a selection of 3 teas to help chase away the blues.

My Thought on this Tea

This tea is very nice and smells heavenly, however, the taste is quite strong so you’d probably only want to have one cup a day. I would buy it again and use it as a ‘treat’ tea.

My Thoughts on this Tea

Personally, this was my least favourite of the 3 teas, mainly because I’m not a huge fan of ginger or lemon flavours. I probably wouldn’t buy this tea again but that is purely based on personal preferences for taste.
