24 Hours of Tea
A tea for any time of day and anything that ails you.
Tara Thorne

STEEPED IN TRADITION and medicinal history, teas offers not just health benefits but also a time-out ritual amid the craziness of everyday life. Sipped throughout the day, tea is a delicious way to flood our bodies with a continuous stream of nourishment to ease every ache, pain, or worry the day can throw at us. Drinking tea, as opposed to fancy coffee drinks like cappuccino, is not only healthier but will lower your carbon footprint.

COFFEE REPLACER

Yerba Mate (from the South American holly tree) contains caffeine and other stimulants found in coffee and chocolate—so you won’t miss out on your morning jolt. In fact, it has been approved in France to treat asthenia (weakness or lack of energy). Yerba Mate also aids nutrient absorption, making it the perfect complement to a healthy breakfast.

COLD FIGHTER

Green Tea boasts many familiar healthful properties, including cancer prevention—but it can also protect against the common cold. Cold-steeping your green tea is a great idea. You’ll get less caffeine, less tannin (bitterness), and more active antioxidants than steeping in hot water. Avoid if you suffer from anemia, osteoporosis, or have a heart condition.
