Have things settled down from the Back to School Mania? If you’re a student or a parent of a student, you have just gone through some major changes. Here are a few teas to help ease you back into the swing of the school year:
Kids love the sugary flavors of sodas and juices, but at Art of Tea we’ve created a few caffeine-free herbal infusions that are kid-friendly, too. We recommend Blueberry Cheesecake, Banana Dulce and Kauai Cocktail Fruit Blend as a naturally sugar-free alternative for the school-bound kids in your life. These blends smell great and taste delicious!
Teas to Adjust Your Sleep Schedule
Long daylight hours and summer vacations can wreak havoc on the sleep schedule. If you need to get to sleep at a decent hour and wake up bright and early, sip relaxing herbal blends like Ethos, Chamomile Clementine and Caramelized Pear.
Some studies have shown that a component in tea called L-theanine aids in memory function and alertness. Sounds like a great study aid to us! Shade-grown teas, such as Ceremonial Matcha, Uji Gyokuro and Ginger Matcha, are all high in L-theanine.
Alternatives to Juice and Soda for Lunch
If you plan to pack teas or herbal infusions for lunch or a late night at the library, you’ll probably want to know that some teas hold up better in a Thermos than others. In general, rooibos and other herbal infusions retain their flavor well. If you’re looking for an iced tea, we also recommend Santiago Strawberry, Passionfruit Jasmine and Garden of Eden. For hot tea, we also recommend Assam Gold, Cinnamon Figand 1896.
