Different Teas for Different Times: When to Drink What

Tea is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. The type of tea you drink can affect your mood, energy level, and overall well-being, so in this blog post, we will provide a quick guide on when to drink different types of tea during the day. This of course isn’t set in stone, but hopefully a helpful piece of inspiration for how tea can fit into to your life.

Morning Tea

Mornings can be a bit of a struggle for some people, so choosing the right type of tea can help set you up for the day.

White tea is a great choice for lazy mornings. It has a delicate flavor and a subtle sweetness that can help ease you into the day. Its caffeine content is relatively low, so it won't overstimulate you.

If you're looking for a more productive morning, black and green teas are great options. They both contain caffeine that can help you feel more alert and focused. Green tea, in particular, contains an amino acid called l-theanine that can work in harmony with caffeine to give you mental clarity for work, study or just getting a headstart on the day. For a strong start to day though, you need to try our Breakfast Dip.

Afternoon Tea

The afternoon slump is a real thing, and that's why we also recommend drinking green or black tea in the afternoon. Both types of tea contain caffeine that can give you the energy boost you need to power through the rest of the day.

Black tea has a higher caffeine content and can provide a stronger energy boost. As mentioned however, green tea contains l-theanine, which can help you maintain focus and concentration without the jitters that can come with drinking coffee. For a smooth afternoon tea experience, try out our Super Sencha or the fresh Minty Green.

If you've had a big meal and need help with digestion, try drinking oolong tea. In China, it is often consumed after meals to aid digestion. It has a pleasant, slightly sweet taste and can help reduce inflammation in the digestive system. Oolong tea also contains various degrees of caffeine and l-theanine depending on the type of oolong.

Evening Tea

As the day winds down, it's time to relax and unwind. This is where herbal teas come in. Unlike black and green tea, herbal teas are caffeine-free, making them a great choice for the evening.

Chamomile tea is a popular choice for its calming effects. Chamomile contains apigenin, a compound that can promote relaxation making it perfect for unwinding after a long day. Its mild, floral flavor can also help soothe your senses.

Lemongrass tea is a refreshing and zesty alternative to caffeinated teas. It has a bright citrusy flavor that can help perk you up without disrupting your sleep. It is a great choice for a productive evening when you need to stay alert and focused but don't want to consume caffeine.

In conclusion, there is a tea for every occasion. Whether you need a boost of energy or a way to wind down, there is a tea that can help. Experiment with different types of tea to find the ones that work best for you, and remember to savor the sips.

Happy sipping!
