We hate to stereotype, but let’s face it – we love our tea. Despite coffee becoming more and more popular, the average Brit consumes >4lbs of tea per year. That makes us the 3rd largest consumer of tea per capita in the world, just shy of Ireland and surprisingly far behind Turkey.
Depending on the blend; tea can wake us up in the morning, help us wind down after a long day at work, or just give us an excuse to leave our desk for a few minutes.
Today you can find a whole array of teas infused with naturally therapeutic ingredients such as turmeric, ginger, chamomile and many more which have a whole host medicinal qualities attributed to them.
Tea is a quick, affordable, and tasty way of boosting our immune systems with powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antibacterials, antivirals, and so on.
Most recently we’ve seen CBD introduced as the new thing to infuse into your tea leaves. CBD is supposed to offer an incredible variety of benefits and we encourage you to have a look at the US National Library of Medicine which has thousands of eye-opening papers outlining CBD’s enormous potential.
As always, our goal is to make life that little bit easier for you; so please enjoy our list of the top 10 CBD teas currently available on the market.
