Teas that will take your self care day to the next level

Sometimes when life gets too much or we experience sustained periods of stress, it can feel like the weight of the world is on top of you. It’s natural human behaviour to look for ways to escape from everyday life temporarily, this is called 'self care' and it’s entering the mainstream more and more everyday.

More and more people are realising that self-care is important for taking care of their mental health - especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. According to Google Trends, searches for the term “self care” have just about quadrupled in the UK since 2015. 

Taking time for yourself is essential for maintaining a healthy mind, and the best thing that helps you unwind will be entirely personal to you.

Everyone has a different way they do self care, some people go for a long hike to take in the fresh air, some get crafty, and some people like to relax and catch-up with their favourite TV show. 

Our favourite method of self-care is to sit down with a lovely hot brew. Some loose leaf teas are a great way to detox the body and experiencing their tastes and aromas can help clear the mind from whatever is troubling it for a relaxing break.

In this blog we’ll show you some of our favourite loose leaf wellness teas so that you can take your next self care to another level of relaxation.
