Spilling the Tea, Why We’re Ditching Coffee
Coffee’s gentler and restorative sister makes a convincing case to make the switch.
Earlier this year I was noticing a very irritating eye twitch that would simply not go away. After some Google searches and a trip to my GP, I realised my incessant eye twitch was due to an over consumption of caffeine.
A devastating relation for a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur, nonetheless, the resounding recommendation was to make the switch from coffee to tea.
Historically speaking, tea is a gift to the world from ancient China. The cultivation of tea in Asia can be traced back to 2737 BC and made its journey through different cultures since.
In ancient ayurvedic medicine, tea is the herbal vehicle for remedies to cure a plethora of concerns or ailments.
Boasting transformative results for breastfeeding, insomnia, gut issues and stress, we are absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to the modern tea offering yielding amazing health benefits.
For me, the switch from coffee has been made simple by taking up blends like chai, English breakfast and earl grey which still boast some caffeine content and allow me a gentle hum rather than raging buzz (and most importantly fixed my twitchy eye!)
My newfound tea ritual has fast become a favourite part of my self-care routine. An evening brew of camomile or sleepy time tea is the hug in the mug I don’t know how I’ll ever live without – and like with anything, the beautiful tea accessories, pots mugs and jugs have only further encouraged my habit.
