The Ultimate Tea-tox
We have all been there; in the supermarket wanting to try out a new herbal tea, thinking that detox teas will be a nice, calming drink, but with tonnes to choose from it all gets a bit…errr…stressful and we leave with the usual PG tips or Tetley.
Herbal teas are often used to help treat minor ailments such as digestive problems (peppermint teas) and nausea (ginger teas). If you want to give your body a break from the high sugar and caffeine hot drinks you might be drinking, then these can be the perfect contenders for detox teas.
There are loads of delicious teas just waiting to be discovered and here at Janes we are always happy to try them out for you!
Top Detox Teas
We have tried to pick out teas that taste great, but are helping cleanse and rejuvenate your body too.
Pukka Detox with Lemon and Pukka Cleanse
Both £2.39 for 20 teabags
For the ultimate detox, Pukka has the perfect range. These gorgeous teas are so refreshing we just can’t get enough. Detox with Lemon has a lovely aniseed and liquorice flavour that works perfectly with the lemon. If this doesn’t do it for you, then the Cleanse tea with nettle leaf, dandelion root and fennel seed, cooled with peppermint and aloe vera might be more your cup of tea… did you see what we did there?
Whittard Lemon and Ginger tea
£5 for 25 teabags
Still getting over the last of your wintery colds? It has long been known that nothing can beat the lovely taste of lemon and ginger when you feel bunged up, or even when you just want a fruity change to other teas. This one is so vibrant and sharp it will liven you up with each and every sip. Add a squidge of honey to sweeten slightly, if that’s how you roll.
Twinings Intensely Buttermint
£2.69 for 20 teabags
If you love peppermint tea but are looking for a new twist, try this velvety smooth, sweet buttermint tea from Twinings. They have blended vanilla with peppermint to remind us of those glorious sweets you had when you were young. The peppermint is also perfect for digestion after a big meal.
T2 Loose Tea in Liquorice Legs or Just Peppermint
£6.50 for 50g or £8.00 for 100g – Liquorice & Peppermint
Liquorice and peppermint keep cropping up as favourite flavours to help you detox. If you have a looseleaf teapot then T2 teas will be perfect for you. The amazing aromas will hit you before you have opened the box and then as the tea brews the smells become even stronger. The peppermint flavour is so intense it will leave your mouth feeling super-fresh and clean. The liquorice tea flavour is for more of an acquired taste, but is just as refreshing as the peppermint.
Clipper Green tea with Cranberry
£1.89 for 20 teabags
Green tea is a great detox tea to flush out the toxins you accumulate day-to-day. Add in the cranberry and you have a great tea to help keep your bladder healthy too! The taste of this tea is an acquired one, but stick with it as once you have had one cup, you will want another as soon as you can. Both flavours are relatively subtle but the fruitiness comes through nicely.
There we have it. Once you have tried these wonderful detox teas you will be refreshed and suitably detoxed.
Remember these are super tasty teas, so can be enjoyed anytime, not just as detox teas.
