When it’s cold and dark out, there’s nothing like cozying up and enjoying a hot, flavorful beverage. Soothing hot drink blends can warm us up, support and strengthen our immune systems, help us focus, and more.
1. Teecino Dandelion Dark Roast
This certified organic roast is comprised of carob, chicory, dandelion root, Ramon seeds, and natural coffee flavor. It’s calming and gives you a rich feeling and flavor. If you want to jazz it up you can add dairy-free milk and some brown rice or maple syrup. I think it’s great as-is, so you might find you don’t need those either, but if you’re feeling like you want something on the sweeter side, go for it.
This Mugicha roasted barley tea is made from whole unhulled barley that’s been coarsely ground. It’s a refreshing beverage that will satisfy those who crave a dark-roasted flavor without the caffeinated buzz.
This immune system-supporting tea is made of organic olive leaf, peppermint, echinacea root, licorice root, thyme, rosemary, and natural cranberry flavor. Steep Echo’s entire tea line is based around olive leaf, sourced from their orchards in Santa Barbara, CA. Olive trees have long been regarded for their health benefits, many of which are attributed to a compound called oleuropein found in its leaves and fruit. Oleuropein is known to help fight infection, provides nearly double the antioxidants of green tea, four times the antioxidants of vitamin C, and also promotes increased energy and cardiovascular health!
