Soothing Teas to Choose for the Afternoon

Posted by Premium Teas Canada on

Most of us need caffeine to start their day and keep it running. Be it tea or coffee, we all find a source of caffeine for our morning grinds.

However, when the afternoon comes we want to slowly wind down and prepare ourselves for a more soothed afterwork hours. A good way to do it is by sipping on some decaffeinated teas, if you just can't live without your black teas or pick some herbal tisanes (most people still call them 'teas').

Here are a few good choices not just for an afternoon tea party but also for an afternoon drink at the cold office, or a calming cuppa while you're reading your favourite book.

1. Peppermint Herbal

Peppermint tea not only it helps with your tummy's wellbeing, but it also allows you to enjoy a cup of refreshing and at the same time soothing tisane. Because it's caffeine free by nature, you may enjoy at any time of the day.

2. Vanilla Comoro

Nowadays, people are turning their eyes onto flavoured tea blends...and there are many. However, this one should be a must try on your list. The pure vanilla blended in this tea is from one of the best places in the world to source vanilla from - the Comoro Islands. The smooth body with slightly sweeter notes makes a great to enjoy in the afternoon hours. This tea is decaf.

3. Decaf Hot Cinnamon Spice

Hot Cinnamon Spice definitely has the wow factor out of all Harney & Sons flavoured teas. It has been a tea lovers' favourite for over 30 years and is not going to slow down any time soon. Since it has been so coveted, Harney & Sons blended a decaffeinated version of it that is also amazing. The decaffeination process that the company has chosed delivers a great tasting decaf tea.

4. Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea, also known by many as red tea, is a South African bush that is red in colour and that makes a great cup of herbal tea. Plain or flavoured, you will not only enjoy the health benefits of it but also soothe yourself for a good night sleep... and who doesn't want that?

5. Yellow & Blue - the Harney & Sons Chamomile and Lavender Tea

When you hear yellow and blue, you imagine something bright and soothing. This Harney & Sons blend is not anywhere away from that.  It is a calming brew that mixes only the flower buds of yellow Chamomile and the blue/purple Lavender. Sipping on it while you're sick or when you need something to relax you, it is a go-to blend for anyone at any time of the day.
