Happy new year! If you're one of the 45% of Americans who usually make New Year's resolutions, the year of change ahead may look daunting to you. So, here are some tips on how to make tea your key to success in three of the most common resolutions:

  1. Tea for exercising!
    Need an extra boost for your workout? Let tea be your energy drink! As we all know, it's important to stay hydrated when we're exercising, and despite common myths, tea is actually a great choice for hydrating your body. In addition to blends such as our MetaboTea (which is great for helping those with active lifestyles keep their metabolisms running efficiently), you can use tea for anything from motivation to recovery. If inflammation is a problem, the natural anti-inflammatory properties of our ArthriTea or Green Jaguar blend can help you prepare for or recover from a tough workout. Rooibos blends are chock-full of healthy vitamins that can help replenish nutrients and strengthen bone density. Or how about a cup of mate, whose exercise-friendly benefits range from stimulating energy and focus to burning stored fat? With tea on your side, exercising can be easier (and tastier) than ever!

  2. Tea as your dieting wingman!
    Sometimes it seems like there are more diets than people! However, almost all diets allow you to drink (all-natural) tea or herbal tisanes, many of which can help you accomplish your diet goals. Our Gentle Cleanse WellTeaing blend helps support your liver and kidneys in clearing the body systems and is a great natural alternative to harsh chemical detoxes that strip your body of nutrients. Many dessert fans can benefit from having a small amount of something naturally sweet after meals in order to curb cravings, such as our Chocolate-Covered Strawberry or Yorktown Patty house blends. If appetite in general is a problem, the appetite-suppressant properties of our Slimming Goddess Oolong may help you feel fuller faster as well. Is soda your trouble point? Make some sparkling tea to help you say goodbye to those cravings and hello to a healthier you!

  3. Tea as a de-stressing aid!
    Trying to stress less in the new year? Tea is a great tool for helping to reduce stress in your life. Our AnxieTea blend can help calm racing minds with the neurosedative effects of passionflower and Egyptian chamomile. Making a cup of tea in the morning is also an excellent way to set your intentions for the day. If you want to try meditating to help calm down but can't find the time, use the act of brewing a relaxing cuppa as a meditative moment to nurture yourself and focus on the present. And since the caffeine composition in tea is different from that in coffee, those quitting caffeine for its negative effects on the nervous system may find solace in tea.

Remember, resolutions are supposed to help you be a better you—knowing who you are and loving yourself is the best way to learn how you can improve yourself. Start by treating yourself with a nurturing cup of tea!

Building Communi-Tea with Local Businesses

As a locally-owned business ourselves, we here at Discover Teas are always looking out for ways to give back to our community and our fellow local entrepreneurs and small businesses. We know from experience that it can be hard to stand out and set yourself apart from the crowd!

Fortunately, through the years we have been able to help our community businesses by partnering with them to create custom, signature tea blends that reflect their individual brands. Some incorporate their signature blend into their marketing, provide it to their customers and clients, use it for gifting and showing appreciation, or even add it to their current product lines to create additional income. We have worked with restaurants, massage therapists, local charities, yoga studios, martial arts schools, skincare salons, and even local conventions—the list goes on and on! We love helping local businesses create teas that showcases their uniqueness to their clients and customers, whatever the industry.
