It’s pretty obvious that we’re passionate about tea – but not just because it’s delicious. Teas have been used for thousands of years for their amazing health benefits. That’s why we think there’s a cup of tea to help you achieve every kind of New Year’s Resolution.
At Oriental Teahouse, we know you might need some help sticking to your goals, so we’ve paired some common resolutions and the teas that can help keep you on track.
Resolution 1: looking and feeling better
By the time the New Year comes around, we’re starting to feel the effects of all the late nights, indulgent dinners and drinks with friends. Fun in the sun also takes a toll on our skin. No one wants to start a new year looking and feeling less than their best. Give yourself some love with a delicious brew.
Our recommendation: Refreshing Tea
Our Refreshing tea is known to calm, cleanse and leave you feeling refreshed. It might be the essential pick-me-up you need to kick start your year the right way. It’s also great for your eyes and skin. Drink it in the morning and start feeling the benefits straight away.
Resolution 2: sleeping better and relaxing
There is no substitute for a good night’s sleep. Winding down properly and clearing yourself of the day’s stresses can help you get some quality snoozing – it’s no wonder “sleeping better” is a popular New Year’s Resolution. No better way to prepare for a night full of Z’s than with a warm and cosy (caffeine-free) cuppa before bed!
Our recommendation: herbal tea
Herbal tea helps to calm your system right down. Our Chrysanthemum Tea is perfect to sip on as you unwind. It’s a classic that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to help you relax.
Resolution 3: cutting coffee and feeling more energised
If you can’t face your workmates before you’ve had your first shot of espresso in the morning, you might want to rethink your coffee habits in 2017. We’re all guilty of guzzling coffee to get us through the day but a dependence on caffeine isn’t healthy. Tea can be an awesome alternative to help you kick your addiction.
Our recommendation: black tea
Try our earthy Pu Erh Marjian Tea. It’s compressed to preserve bold flavours and intensity, making it a great substitute for your latte. Rich and satisfying, you’ll quickly realize that tea can be your healthier savior.
Resolution 4: detoxing and losing weight
After all those delicious holiday meals, you might feel like your body needs some cleansing! Good thing tea has some detoxifying properties that help to flush out the nasties.
Our recommendation: green tea
Naturally high in antioxidants, green tea is great at flushing out toxins and boosting your immune system. Try our Gen Mai Chai Tea to give your system a cleanse. With roasted brown rice, it’s a delicious way to get back on track.
Resolution 5: drinking more water and staying hydrated
Fizzy drinks are quenching on a hot day, but they’re often laden with sugar and preservatives. If you struggle to drink enough plain water, why not give some tasty, sugar-free iced tea a go?
Our recommendation: fruit tea
Keep cool with our refreshing Raspberry and Lime Tea – a hydrating solution to a hot summer’s afternoon. Keep hydrated and replace sodas with this natural pick-me-up. Tasty and sweet, it’s packed with vitamin C and is great served both hot and cold.
Now that you know which teas can help you stick to your New Year’s Resolutions, why not come down to one of our stores and have a cuppa with us? Or feel free to order any one of our dozens of teas online for yourself, family and friends. Cheers to 2017!
