What is it? Herbal tea is a beverage made from the infusion of herbs, spices or other plant based ingredients.

Benefits: Herbal tea is a great way to reduce caffeine intake, it’s high in antioxidants & comes in such a huge variety that positively impact digestion, sleep, stress & anxiety, detoxing your organs & absorption of nutrients.

Interesting fact: Tea is best prepared with warm water rather than boiling.

How to: Sip on tea in the morning rather than coffee to kick start your day, indulge in a tasty tea in the afternoon to prevent mindless snacking & enjoy a soothing cup in the evening rather than a wine to wind down.
