Looking to replace your usual cup of tea with a more interesting tipple? Our list of the best alternatives to tea will give you all the inspiration you need.
The British are well known as a tea-drinking nation, drinking approximately 100 million cups of tea every day, according to the UK Tea & Infusions Association.
And we’re not the only ones to relish this comforting hot drink. From Turkey to New Zealand, black tea is enjoyed across the globe.
Now, we have nothing against this popular drink. Quite the opposite – black tea has plenty of health benefits, is packed with antioxidants, and gives us the jolt of caffeine many of us need to get our days started.
However, there are times when you want an alternative to tea. Whether you are cutting down on your caffeine intake or just want to try something new, here are some suggestions for hot drinks that are just as comforting and satisfying as your usual cuppa.
Alternatives to Tea
Happy with some caffeine but looking for a more interesting alternative to tea? NutraBoost may be just what you need – this energy-boosting herbal tea contains naturally caffeinated ingredients like green tea and guarana but balances them out with adaptogenic herbs such as ashwagandha and rhodiola.
2. Liquorice & Cinnamon
Earthy, sweet, and comforting, Liquorice & Cinnamon is a great option to reach for when you want a caffeine-free alternative to tea. Ideal for later in the day or when the weather gets colder, the ingredients in this warming blend also come with plenty of health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and supporting the heart and digestive system.
3. Lemongrass & Ginger
Another caffeine-free substitute for black tea is our Lemongrass & Ginger blend, which is an ideal way to kickstart your day in a healthy way. This light and refreshing herbal tea helps you wake up in the morning and is also great for immune support.
Speaking of immune support, one of our favourite alternatives to tea during the autumn and winter months is NutraDefence. This powerful herbal tea combines ingredients like elderberry, liquorice, and thyme to boost your immune defences. Plus, some of the herbs in this blend may help you recover more quickly from coughs and colds.
If you typically drink tea with breakfast or after lunch, you might like to consider NutraCleanse as a healthy alternative – this herbal tea is designed to support your digestion and keep your natural detoxification systems working as they should.
With the colder weather approaching, another great alternative to tea is NutraThroat. This soothing blend contains herbs that are traditionally used to ease sore throats and coughs, such as marshmallow root, slippery elm, and chamomile. The warm liquid can also be a comforting relief when you are feeling under the weather.
Sometimes you want a cup of tea to start your day but other times you just want something comforting to help you unwind. Our favourite warm drink to relax with at the end of the day is NutraRelax – a soothing blend of chamomile, lemon balm, passionflower and other herbs that support rest and tranquility.
Struggling to choose? There are plenty of options here and perhaps one meets your needs better than others. But if you can’t make up your mind, try one of our gift boxes – it is the perfect way to try several different blends. Of course, they also make great presents!
