6 Calming Brews That Are More Exciting Than Black Tea

By Melissa Fine, GoodnessMe Nutritionist & Product Advisor. 


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. 

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

GoodnessMe

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. 

GoodnessMe

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.
