Ready to switch out your morning coffee or black tea for something more interesting? Here’s our pick of the best herbal teas to drink in the morning.
For many of us, making a cup of tea first thing in the morning is as automatic as brushing our teeth or putting on deodorant. It’s such an established part of our morning routine that we don’t question it.
And for most, the tea in that cup will be traditional black tea, probably with added milk. But when we limit ourselves to black tea in the mornings, we might be missing out on some of the health benefits we gain when we switch to herbal tea instead.
Switching to herbal blends doesn’t mean missing out on your daily dose of caffeine either. Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea but is processed differently, keeping more of the active ingredients that make it so good for our health.
And there are other naturally caffeinated plants that can give your herbal tea the extra boost you’re looking for.
On the other hand, if you’re trying to avoid too much caffeine, there are also loads of herbal tea options that are caffeine-free, delicious, and still great for getting your day off on the right foot.
Explore some of the options with our list of the best herbal teas to drink in the morning.
If you need a little help getting going in the mornings, then NutraBoost is the blend for you. This energising herbal tea includes naturally caffeinated plants like guarana and green tea to help you shake off the cobwebs and get ready for the day.
If coffee gives you the jitters, the good news is that the caffeine content of NutraBoost is balanced out with ingredients that help to give you long-lasting energy without the crash. Rhodiola and ginseng are both well-known energy boosters, while ashwagandha and the L-theanine in green tea help keep us calmer and more resilient to stress.
Whatever your day throws at you, a cup of NutraBoost in the mornings will give you the mental clarity and alertness to meet the challenge.
2. Ginseng & Ginger
Ginseng is favoured by practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine as an all-round wellness and vitality tonic. It’s said to banish fatigue and raise your energy levels, making it an ideal herb to use in the mornings.
As well as giving your physical energy levels a boost, ginseng promotes mental clarity and alertness, helping you concentrate at work or school. Meanwhile, fiery ginger gives this blend a satisfyingly punchy flavour – and supports your digestive system too.
3. Lemongrass & Ginger
Another caffeine-free blend that is perfect for the mornings is our flagship Lemongrass & Ginger tea. The fresh, zingy flavour of this tea is a delicious way to wake up your mind and body.
Both ginger and lemongrass are packed with antioxidants and have an anti-inflammatory effect. They also support the digestive system and give your immune system a boost.
Many of us turn to herbal teas when we want to look after our bodies. So, if you’re looking to improve your health and maintain a healthy weight, you might like to choose NutraGlycemia for your morning brew.
This premium herbal tea blend is packed with herbs that support healthy blood sugar and blood lipid levels. It contains ingredients like bitter melon and cinnamon, which help to regulate your metabolism and prevent spikes in your blood sugar levels.
If you struggle with craving sweet treats, this tea is also great because it contains herbs that help to reduce cravings and support your efforts to maintain a healthy weight.
For those of us who stumble out of bed in the mornings cursing our stiff limbs and aching joints, a great herbal tea to choose first thing is NutraJoint.
This is our premium blend designed to fight inflammation and support your joint health. It contains just three ingredients – green tea, curcumin (from turmeric), and piperine. All three are well known for their anti-inflammatory properties and ability to ease joint stiffness and pain.
Curcumin and piperine are especially effective when used together, which is why we’ve combined them in this herbal tea. Plus, if you’d still like a bit of extra energy in the mornings, the green tea in this blend will give you the boost you need, while also supporting your joint and bone health.
