Your usual morning coffee break might soon be replaced. Now that pumpkin spice latte and peppermint mocha season has ended, up your health game by incorporating some teas into your day. Starbucks has launched their brand new line of wellness teas that’ll hit all the marks on your health scale.
In a partnership with Teavana, the worldwide coffee shop has announced their brand new collection, which are now available in stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Filled with fruit and spices, the teas are specially blended to give you the healing powers you need — morning, afternoon, or evening.
Here’s what you’ll find from the four brand new drinks:
Since it’s loaded with vitamin C, white tea, blackberry leaves, lime, pineapple, and orange, the defense tea is all about strengthening your immune system, especially at the time of year when our immune systems might be a little down.
Research has readily proved that vitamin C helps to improve your immunity, and getting it in a warm tea also give you some much-needed warmth in the colder winter months.
Filled with ginger, lemon, spearmint, and peppermint, this rooibos blend is an ideal tea to help soothe your tummy. As an added bonus, the combination of ingredients also makes it a great coffee alternative — a nice option if your New Year’s resolution was to cut back on the java.
A blend of black, oolong, and green teas, plus with a hint of fruits like mango, apricot, and peach, the tea is ideal to maintain a good and functional metabolism. Maybe that’s exactly why the Brits are onto something with their morning routine? This type of tea is the optimal way to boost your metabolism in the morning.
The final tea, made as a combination of the Defense Wellness Tea, steamed lemonade, hot water, and honey, the Citrus Defender also has touches of citrus and spices like cinnamon, which help to ease a sore throat and and help to fight wintertime sickness. Sure sounds like it beats a trip to the pharmacy.
