If you're a long time reader of my blog you'll know how much of a fiend I am for a good cup of tea, whether that's a builder's tea with a Yorkshire tea bag (Obvs) and milk or a herbal or fruity tea. When I lived at home and was feeling overwhelmed, my Dad would always make me a cup of tea to help me feel calmer. It always worked! These days I work in a bustling creative agency whereby the kettle is never not boiling and somebody is always swinging by to make a tea round.
I was recently introduced to Begutea, creators of specialist lifestyle teas aiming to promote a healthier inner self through 6 speciality teas. They're all naturally and ethically blended for all situations from a pang of anxiety to those moments when you're craving a sweet treat but don't want to indulge in a chocolate bar.
The main purpose of Begutea is to aid weight loss through a healthy lifestyle however, targeted weight loss isn't a priority for me for me at the moment therefore, the Beguteas are perfect for enjoying whenever I feel like cleansing my system or i'm winding down before bed. I am quite satisfied by the fact that there is a tea for every mood or occasion. It's worth noting that all of the teas come with free access to Beguteabutrion and Begufitness, online services that are designed to work perfectly with your new selection of lifestyle tea, I haven't tried them myself but I think it's a great idea to help support you on your journey to a healthy mind and body through tea.
Each Begutea comes in a biodegradable pyramid and is enjoyed with boiled water, my favourite is the 'Calm' variant which is specially blended with Rooibos, Peppermint, Chamomile, Gotu Kola, Lemon Balm, Lime Flowers, Passion flowers and Calendula Petals. I enjoyed a nicely brewed cup whilst sitting in the garden seeking some inspiration from my favourite coffee table books. Bliss.
Have you ever tried a lifestyle tea, what did you think?
