Tea…there is something comforting in the cold of winter about a warm cup of tea. I like variety, and I have my tea supply stocked up with green teas, white teas, herbal teas, black teas, and a new favorite: yerba mate.
Unlike coffee, tea doesn’t have the acidic effects on my body. It isn’t as caffeinated so it doesn’t give me the jitters like coffee. And…tea is loaded with antioxidants to boost immunity and protect against cancers and other diseases.
I have discovered a new favorite…Double Dark Chocolate Mate by The Republic of Tea. It’s a combination of organic, natural dark cocoa powder blended with organic, roasted yerba mate leaves. It’s gluten-free which I appreciate because many roasted yerba mate teas are not. I like it plain or with a little Stevia and a splash of almond milk. Yerba mate tea naturally contains some caffeine for a little energy boost in the morning.
Tea…enjoy a cup today!
