The Best Herbal Teas to Drink in the Morning

As herbal tea lovers, there's no better feeling than waking up in the morning, sticking the kettle on and having a morning cuppa. 

With different blends of herbs being a powerful support to your wellbeing goals, it's a great time to explore different herbal tea remedies to further boost your health.

So without further ado, here are our top teas to kickstart your morning and set you up for a great day ahead... 

When you wake up: StabiliT

When your alarm sounds, it can often be difficult to muster up the energy to leap out of bed and kickstart the day. Enter StabiliT, a blend of herbal goodness to ease you into your morning.

Blended with balancing herbs, this is sure to help you overcome those morning blues and gear up for your day ahead. 

What's special about these herbs? 

Goji berries are well known as a superfood. Produced in the Chinese province Ning Xia, these are grown from organic and natural sources to contain the highest level of nutrition. This is due to the high content of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Aside from being the main ingredient in StabiliT, they can also be eaten as a snack, sprinkled over porridge, smoothie bowls and granola (few breakfast options there)!

Ginseng (not to be confused with its American brother) is a herb which targets mood improvement, weight loss and immunity. It is one of the most prized herbs in the world for its health benefits, and has been used for centuries. 

Dried Astragalus Root has been used in China for centuries as a way to help the body fight off stress and disease (something we could all do without). The astragalus plant originated from China and is native to the northern provinces of Yunnan and Sichuan, with a long history in herbal formulas. 

Palmleaf Raspberry Leaves & Amur Corktree Bark are key components in assisting against cardiovascular diseases, helping heal wounds and treating pneumonia/tuberculosis respectively. The sweet fruits that grow from the Palmleaf stems are regularly used in Chinese culinary recipes, with the bark of the Amur Corktree being typically found in herbal supplement concoctions. 

Combining these herbs together in one teabag ensures you receive an array of benefits from just one cup of StabiliT

Mid-morning Tea Break: FocusT

Surely it's not just us that needs a little 'pick-me-up' half way through the working day, especially when your lunch break seems so far away? 

It's often difficult to maintain your concentration levels when there are so many variables that you have to overcome on a daily basis.  

Filled with herbs to energise your morning and get you to power through until lunch, here's how FocusT can help you persevere... 

What's special about these herbs? 

Dried Peppermint is a herb composed of a squarish stem and elliptical, scaled leaves. Both the leaves and stem are covered by tiny white hairs. This plant has an aromatic odour and an acrid taste. Both the leaves and stem have been used in Chinese herbalism preparations as a mint oil for thousands of years, particularly to assist digestion, eradicating cold and sore throat whilst benefiting eye and skin health. 

Ginseng's brother from across the pond (American Ginseng) is a popular herb for its ability to assist with brain and immune function whilst acting as a slimming assistant. This herb is also a great anti-inflammatory to assist with aligning your internal wellness. 

Liquorice Root is used mostly as a sweetener food and drink. It is found growing in Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia, and it's been used for thousands of years and dozens of purposes. Prized as a natural 'guide drug', this root is typically combined with other herbs to enhance their health effects. 

Dried Ginger Root is among the healthiest spices on the planet. Ginger also has a long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative treatment due to its therapeutic properties (aid muscle soreness & balancing blood sugar levels). Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered or as an oil or juice.

How do i brew the perfect cuppa? 

To maximise the health benefits from these herbal teas, we suggest you start off gently with sipping 1 teabag per day. Progressively increase the number of teabags over a number of weeks, but do not exceed 3 bags per day.

Step 1: Find your favourite cup and take 1 tea bag from the resealable foil bag

Step 2: Rinse tea bag with a little water

Step 3: Fill 2/3 of the cup with freshly boiled water over the tea bag

Step 4: Steep for 3-5 minutes then relax and enjoy the essence from the herbs.

*Aura Tip* - Keep the tea bag in the cup whilst drinking to maximise the benefit from the tea. Always best enjoyed without milk. Our herbal teas do not contain any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and no added sugar.
