The 4 Best Teas for Winter
One of the first things on a lot of our minds when it comes to winter is keeping fit and healthy.
With winter comes the usual flu and cold bugs, so it’s no surprise that we all want to do as much as possible to prevent catching any illnesses. Drinking the right winter teas is one of the best ways to keep on top of your health.
You can also charge your mind and body through the changing winter season with a selection from our top picks.
1. Ginger Tea
Ginger is a winter favourite, so why not utilise this warming and flavourful ingredient in your tea?
However, the spicy and warming notes of ginger tea are not the only reasons we have picked it for our selection of the best winter teas. It is also an ingredient known for clearing the blood and detoxifying the body.
A must-have tea drink to prevent and relieve cold symptoms. So, if you’re looking for a winter tea that will both warm you up from the inside out and keep you feeling your best, then ginger tea is the perfect option for you.
Shop a range of ginger teas online now, including our popular lemon and ginger infusion blend that is as uplifting as it is invigorating. Plus, we couldn’t mention ginger without mentioning our world-famous Ginger snaps.
2. Berry & Elderflower Tea
For a sweet and delicious tea this winter, don’t forget about berry blends. Just like so many of us love to mix our berry cordials with hot water to keep us warm, you can indulge in a steaming cup of berry tea to see you through the day.
Our favourite berry tea blend is mixed with elderflower, an ingredient that is as delicious as it is beneficial.
Elderflower is known to be somewhat of a super-food ingredient when it comes to sniffles and other cold symptoms. Containing tannins that create astringent action, elderflower drys up both runny eyes and nose. This also makes it a favourite for hayfever and other allergy symptoms, so keep it in mind as Spring turns to Summer too!

3. Green Tea
Now, we know exactly how stressful winter can be for so many of us, so it is no surprise that the beloved green tea made our list of the best teas for winter.
Favoured for its calming effects, warming up after a long winter’s day is made easy with a cup of delicious green tea.
Whether you’re struggling with the fatigue brought on by dark mornings and evenings, the stress of the festive period planning, or simply struggling with January blues, green tea is the answer for you.

4. Herbal Tea
In summer, the sun brings us to life, so as the days turn darker and colder in winter, we’re all looking for another way to charge our bodies and minds. Herbal teas are the perfect way to keep our bodies strong, and minds soothed.
Whether you’re looking for a tea to help you unwind in the evening or something to pick you up throughout the day, herbal teas are a versatile lifesaver. Plus, they are available in many blends and ingredient combinations to provide you with the support you need.

The Best Coffees for Winter
If tea isn’t your favourite, then perhaps you’re more interested in warming up with a hot coffee during the winter season?
Of course, you probably enjoy a delicious cup of coffee all year long, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be improved to suit winter days curled up under a blanket or keeping warm in the office. In fact, even some of the best coffee flavours can be enhanced by just a sprinkling of extra ingredients to take your hot beverage a step further for a comforting hug in a mug.
Enhancing Your Coffee in Winter
Ideal for keeping the winter chills away, our top ingredients to add to your favourite coffee blends are vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, among many more.
We love a hot coffee in the winter as even the rich and soothing smell is enough to invoke feelings of warmth and joy that are enough to carry you through even the bleakest and chilliest of days.
Enjoying tea and coffee beyond the winter season
Now that you have read through our guide to the best teas and coffees for winter, we hope that you have all the inspiration and advice you need to get you through the colder season.
However, we’re firm believers that both tea and coffee are an everyday essential to be enjoyed all year round, no matter the season. So, we have a huge variety of flavours, blends and infusions of both teas and coffees to suit every mood, season and day.
