5 Teas to Boost Wellness

Feature: Long Read
Words by Emilie Dock

It’s a widely held belief that a cup of tea can solve anything – and it holds true in many regards. More than a pick-me-up and an excuse for a natter, the humble brew offers a dazzling number of health benefits. Sipping your way to radiance, restful sleep and focus? Now that's a wellness trend we can all get on board with.

Tea for Digestion

Mint and ginger are nature’s digestifs. Both soothe upset stomachs, aid digestion and – perfect for cases of severe overindulgence – reduce nausea. Add lemongrass, as P&T has done here, and you’ve got yourself a caffeine-free infusion that’s as refreshing as it is cleansing.

Tea for Sleep

Native to South Africa, rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and low in tannins – thereby naturally sweet. It also boasts a health-boosting cocktail of minerals including iron, calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese and zinc. Enjoy it here with the freshness of pomelo care of Wright Luxury Tea.

Tea for Better Skin

Gentle on taste – with a sensuous floral bouquet – but strong on antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and rich in vitamins A and C, rose tea is said to do wonders for the skin. Try The East India Tea Company’s blend of Iranian rose buds for a glowing complexion.

Tea for Energy

A standard cup of green tea contains roughly a third of the caffeine found in coffee, but thanks to an amino acid known as L-theanine, the body processes the caffeine more effectively – making you feel alert for longer. And that’s without the ‘jittery’ side effects.

Tea for Weight Loss

In China, Pu-erh tea is known for its ability to speed up the metabolism. Aged and naturally fermented, it reportedly suppresses the synthesis of fatty acids, which can help your body produce less fat. Distinctively rich, smooth and full-bodied, Teaspec’s Jubilee blend is just the tonic after a decadent meal.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth...

Rich in methylglyoxal (MGO), which gives it powerful antibacterial properties, manuka honey is the perfect tea sweetener. Mix into warm water (not hot) to protect the hard-working enzymes.
