Seeing Red - Calm Down With A Nice Cup Of Tea?

Whether you are employed, a student, volunteer whatever your walk of life there comes a time when the pressure gets too much, it all piles up and you are ready to explode. This year, instead of seeing red with anger, why not see red … in your mug! Rooibos tea, also known as red bush tea, is a wonderful blend of two native South African bushes which gives it its unique nutty, earthy taste. This naturally caffeine free tea is ideal if you are feeling bloated and sluggish because it is full of goodness to help rid you of that toxic feeling.

If this nutty, earthy tea does not seem to your satisfaction then why not try other calming, stress relieving teas like peppermint, chamomile or chilli chai tea? All of these stress busting teas are perfect for winding down after a long, hard day's work. Peppermint tea provides a soothing, cool taste in a beautifully hot beverage, this daring contrast helps to relax your mind and settle your stomach ready for a peaceful night's sleep. If peppermint is a bit too daring then why not gives chamomile tea try? This naturally caffeine free herbal tea, yellow in colour and sweet in taste is perfect for helping you to switch off, so why not try a herbal tea tonight to end the day in a more positive mood.

On the other hand, whilst working hard why not try a tea with a kick and add a touch of spice in to your life. This chai tea has a slight twist, infusing real chilli flakes, cardamom pods, vanilla, cinnamon and real chunks of ginger! This tea naturally contains caffeine which will give you that pick me up you need.

If this does not sound like your type of tea and you prefer a sweeter tasting beverage, there is definitely a tea out there for you! When you are working hard your mind and body will crave high in sugar foods and drinks to keep you going. Chocolate flake tea provides you with the taste of a delicious chocolate biscuit dipped in a brew but without those dreaded calories that quickly pile up whilst sat at an office desk. This is unlike any hot chocolate but more a classical brew with a hint of chocolate.

Every hard worker needs that extra little bit of special time for themselves, so go ahead and treat yourself to a relaxing, stress busting brew!
