Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I have to say, as someone with a major sweet tooth, I mostly look forward to all of the desserts. I always try a skinny slice of each of the many pies with a big cup of tea! Our friends at Whittard also suggest drinking tea to relieve holiday stress. What a great idea!
“Take five minutes to push other things aside and sit down with a hot cup of British tea. The British style 3.1 gram teabags have 50% more tea than the US style string and tag 2.1 gram teabags. The teabags are larger and so the tea has more room to brew, resulting in a tastier cup! Instead of allowing food prep and stress to define Thanksgiving, put the kettle on! In the amount of time it takes to drink a cup of tea, we can find many reasons to be thankful.”
Here are some teas to try for de-stressing during the holidays:
– Peppermint tea
Try peppermint tea by Whittard or my favorite Mint Melange tea from Trader Joes. Some mint teas can be strong and almost medicinal. What I like about the Mint Melange is that it is a smooth-tasting calming blend of mint teas.
Keep in mind when choosing a tea for relaxing avoid anything caffeinated and instead choose a decaffeinated or herbal tea. What is your favorite type of tea for de-stressing?
