My Top 5 Herbal Teas For Autumn/Winter | Blogtober 2019

herbal teas

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, I always drink one of my herbal teas.

Yes, that’s right. I even drink of these teas during the heatwave this summer. I think I’m a little sane…but they were so good!

Now that the weather is much colder and I need to keep warm without putting on my heating, I will grab one of these five herbal teas from my cupboard! If I could, I would literally have a cupboard full of only tea. I might even do that at some point, but these are the ones I love to drink either daily or every few days.

Heath & Heather Organic Night Time

This tea is a new one to my cupboard and I think I saw Lea Michelle on Instagram using Heath & Heather so I decided to try. My sleep schedule is beyond shattered. I try to go to bed early but my mind refuses to turn off, leaving me to be up during the night. I’ve tried a few chamomile teas over the years but haven’t managed to find one that I liked.

This one is really good! It’s not too strong and is perfect for getting me ready for bed. It’s not a miracle worker for my sleep but it does help.

Pukka Feel New Organic Tea

Pukka is such an awesome brand! They make seriously yummy teas and I’ve been drinking them for years.  This is another new tea and I discovered this after watching Niomi Smart! She mentioned the Feel New tea in one of her vlogs and I was curious. I managed to find it in my local Boots and I’ve fallen in love!

This contains fennel, organic aniseed, cardamom, turmeric, coriander and licorice root.

Yum, right?! I hate licorice usually but you can’t taste it and I adore aniseed so win-win!

Pukka Vanilla Chai Tea

Another Pukka tea that I think is perfect for this time of year is the Vanilla Chai.

I discovered chai last year after drinking some in a vegan cafe and I was actually pleasantly surprised that I liked it. I had always thought that chai would taste nasty but far from it. It’s actually like the Feel New as it had the cardamom, fennel and licorice. It also has ginger and cinnamon!

A seriously warming drink when it’s freezing cold out there!

Twinings Superblends (Detox)

This, out of all my herbal teas, is one I can only drink every now and again.

It isn’t that it’s nasty but, personally, it’s strong! I was looking for other ways to detox my body a little and came across this in Tesco. I’ve been drinking lemon water every morning for a while and, when I saw this had lemon, I wanted to try.

Since it’s flu season, I wanted to have something that could help my immune system. In this little tea, it contains burdock root, fennel, ginger and added selenium. It’s a whopper!

Tetley Decaf Green Tea

The final tea in my top five is this Tetley Green tea! I faithfully drink this with my porridge every morning and it’s a lovely part of my routine. I wanted to have the decaf version because caffeine doesn’t sit well with me for some reason.

It’s just enough to make me feel better!
