Spring may be just around the corner, but it seems like winter wants to hang around just a little bit longer.
Don’t let the sunnier days fool you, it’s still pretty cold out there. There is, of course, a remedy to keep your spirit up during those frosty evenings or chilly weekends: a warm cup of tea.
6 Best Winter Teas in 2017
Here are five different types of tea to help keep you warm during the winter (Or you know, just for whenever…)
6. French Breakfast Tea
Traditionally produced with leaves that originate from the high mountain region of Ceylon, this blend will produce a smooth amber cup with gentle notes of peaches and honey in the finish, perfect to start off slowly a Saturday morning. Black tea lovers will love it.
5. Darjeeling Tea
What isn’t there to love about a cup of Darjeeling tea? More layered and complex than green teas, the Darjeeling is actually classified as a black tea although it is much lighter and less astringent than other black teas.
Often referred to as the “Champagne of teas”, its flavor is reminiscent of French grapes – almost like a muscat wine. Perfect to wind down after a day at the office.
4. Earl Grey
Just like the Darjeeling, Earl Grey is a great classic you just can’t go wrong with. There are many benefits to this classic such as stress relief and heart disease prevention, and even the ability to improve your energy.
But Earl Grey can also give you that extra kick to start off a cold day or help you improve your immune system to fight off that nasty cold that’s been running around the office.
3. Cinnamon Spice
There are a few Cinnamon spice teas available on the market that may just be what you need if you like something sweet with a kick. Sit back with your favorite book, sip away at your warm cup of cinnamon goodness (and possibly experience a flashback to the Holidays).
2. Chai Spice Black
If cinnamon just doesn’t cut it for you give a Chai spice black tea a try. Flavors include ginger, cinnamon, clove and cardamom.
Its strong aroma tells of a penetrating taste that’s just a little bit sweet. It’s the blend to go to when you want to feel a little exotic in your pyjamas, lounging around the living room.
1. Lemon and Honey
Alright, technically speaking this isn’t really a tea because there’s no actual tea involved. It’s essentially lemon juice, honey and hot water.
This classic combination is perfect when you feel the sniffles coming on. If you must have tea, pair the dynamic duo of lemon juice and honey with some Earl Grey tea.
