We all need a little energy boost every once in a while but we may not always have the time for a power nap. So what do you do when your body’s battery is running low and you need a little pick me up to get you through the rest of the day?
Keep calm and drink tea.
Here are the top teas to stock in your home or office pantry to wake you up!
Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, everyone could do with a little caffeine to help them wake up in the mornings. Mate teas help to increase your energy steadily and in a well-balanced manner. If you get jitters from drinking coffee, mate teas are the perfect alternative as they provide you with the alertness similar to that of coffee but without the side effects.

This fragrant and relaxing tea originated from China over 400 years ago and is known to improve mental alertness and performance. It’s no wonder they make for such great afternoon pick-me-ups! Not only that, oolong is rich in antioxidants as well as polyphenols that boost metabolism and assist in weight loss.

Completely caffeine-free, rooibos tea is often recommended for those suffering from insomnia. The absence of caffeine in rooibos tea is also what makes it a hydrating tea that helps to regulate the body’s temperature. Grab yourself a cup of rooibos after a tough workout session to help replenish fluids lost through sweat.
