6 Calming Brews That Are More Exciting Than Black Tea

Upgrade your beverage game with these fun alternatives to a plain cuppa. There’s something for every taste and time of the day. Each brew offers unique health properties, so get sipping.

Naked Life Calm+

The Naked Life Calm+ mineral water is certainly more exciting than black tea and has all of the calming properties. Containing passionflower, lemon balm and magnesium, this sparkling drink is truely designed to leave you feeling calm. Passionflower is known for its benefits towards anxiety and insomnia, lemon balm is a calming herb said to reduce stress and anxiety and magnesium increases GABA production, which decreases feelings of anxiety. It doesn’t get much more calming than that! Being properly hydrated is also essential for health and the fact that this drink is a mineral water means it’s also supporting our hydration status.


Eloments Summer Orange Organic Vitamin Tea

Green tea is great in the morning because it gives you a little jolt from the caffeine, but in a gentler dose than coffee. This one from Eloments comes with the added bonus of energising B vitamins. The fennel in here adds a nice sweetness, so if you usually find green tea too bitter, give it another go with this blend (featured in this month’s box, so you can try before you buy).


Naked Life Lemon & Ginger Iced Tea

Finally, an iced tea that won’t make your blood sugar go haywire and leave you feeling antsy. Featured in this month’s box, Naked Life’s Iced Tea is naturally zingy and zesty, and sweetened with plant-based, sugar-free sweeteners (erythritol and stevia); so you’ll get the benefits of tea (antioxidants, calming L-theanine, and a little caffeine) without the sugar or artificial sweetener.


Jomeis Fine Foods Matcha Latte

Before you say you’re not a fan of matcha, try this matcha blend. It has coconut milk powder for creaminess, and stevia for a touch of sweetness (with no weird aftertaste). We like to brew this one with steamed almond or oat milk. Matcha is great because it’s high in L-theanine, an amino acid that can help you feel calm and switched on at the same time.

Before You Speak Reset Decaf Mocha

There’s something so comforting about a mug of chocolatey coffee, and now you can get that without the caffeine jitters or blood sugar spike and crash. Before You Speak’s unique decaf blend comes sweetened with stevia, and gives you stress-relieving ashwagandha, calming L-theanine, and valerian, the sleep herb. Find it in this month’s ‘Better Sleep’ Box.


Planet Organic Rooibos Tea

If all that black tea is keeping you up at night, try switching to rooibos tea from 3 pm. It’s caffeine-free, loaded with antioxidants, and the one herbal tea that tastes almost like black tea (almost). You can even add milk to it.


Ritual Brews Unwind Brew

Another goodie you’ll find in this month’s box, this cacao brew is boosted with calming herbs (ashwagandha, chamomile, passionflower) to help you sleep like a baby. Sweetened naturally with cinnamon, cardamom, and sugar-free monk fruit, it gets bonus points for actually tasting like a hot chocolate, without all the sugar.
