Get your day off to the best start with tea
For many people, starting the day with a cup of tea is as much a part of their routine as brushing their teeth or jumping in the shower - but which varieties are most likely to put a spring in your step? After all, you will want a tea that can energise you and awaken the senses when you might not quite be feeling at your best!
Although it is generally the case that tea is great to drink throughout the day, there are some types that will give you that boost you need first thing in the morning. Here are some of our top tips that will give you everything you need to face the day ahead.
If you like to start your day with a cup of black tea then Darjeeling might well fit the bill - its light colour and floral scent makes it a popular choice with tea drinkers all over the world. Aside from its distinct flavour, Darjeeling is also rumoured to have various health benefits, as well as enough caffeine to help you make it through the day.
Yunnan gold tips
Another strong black tea that is perfect in the morning is Yunnan gold tips, which has a full-bodied, rich taste. It is often known as the mocha of tea - and for good reason. Just add a splash of milk and sugar and it's the ideal start to any morning.
Anyone who likes something with a more subtle flavour could find that honey rooibos ticks all the right boxes - its energising undertones will help you face whatever the day throws at you. As you would expect from the name, this tea has a naturally sweet flavour, so you shouldn't need to worry about adding any sugar.
