Black Tea

Black tea is a staple in every cupboard, especially if you live in a chilly and rainy country. It’s a budget-friendly option to keep you warm and hydrated while lifting your spirits over the cold months. Of course, tea isn’t just for winter. It tastes great all year round - whatever the weather!


Benefits of black tea

Many people take advantage of black tea and consider it a basic drink. But it has numerous health perks for your physical and mental health. We’ve listed just a few of the wonderful benefits of black tea:

Comforting and relaxing - Have you ever had a bad day and taken a calming sip of your favourite tea? A steaming hot mug of tea takes the edge off everything because of its relaxing and uplifting properties. It’s a definite go-to if you’re socialising, feeling blue, or want to unwind.

May help mental health - Rituals such as making a cup of tea can temporarily ease the symptoms of depression and anxiety. That’s because it’s a form of self-love that nourishes your body. The act of brewing a cuppa also requires you to slow down and take a moment to breathe.

Energy boosting - Black tea has a dose of caffeine to increase blood flow and increase your energy. This makes it the perfect remedy to shake off a groggy morning or the after-lunch slump.

Increases hair and skin health - Black tea contains antioxidants that protect your skin and hair against damage, such as UV rays and premature ageing. So, indulge in a delicious cup for a natural beauty boost.

Enhances brain function - If you need to focus but don’t want coffee, black tea is an excellent option. The caffeine sharpens your attention so you can concentrate on finishing your tasks and leaving the office on time.

Improves digestion - The warming properties of tea boost your blood flow, making it great for gut health. Have a cup after a meal to aid digestion, but go light on cow’s milk or switch to plant-based milk to prevent bloating.
