Cheers to 2022!
Whatever goals you have for the new year, a cup of tea will help you along the way. Tea is rejuvenating and packed with the health benefits you need to support your healthy new year’s resolutions. Even better, simply choosing high quality, loose leaf tea already accomplishes some new year’s worthy goals:
- Stay Hydrated: Tea is a great way to drink more water throughout the day.
- Be Sustainable: Loose leaf tea requires less packaging.
- Save Money: Loose leaf tea is a better deal for the money.
- Be Healthy: Most high quality teas are beneficial for overall health.
A healthy lifestyle is a balance of all factors in your body, mind and environment, so there are many worthy goals to choose. Our list of 11 teas will get you inspired. From going to the gym to focusing on positivity, there is a perfect tea for each of your new year’s aspirations.
1. Focus on Mental Health with Calming Tea
Who isn’t stressed these days? Chronic stress and anxiety can be a serious health concern, so finding a way to relax is essential. A warm cup of Calming herbal tea is just what you need. Tulsi, otherwise known as Holy Basil, is our secret ingredient that helps combat chronic anxiety. Drinking Calming tea regularly can help your mind adapt to stress so you can find a new sense of inner tranquility.
We combine Tulsi with other soothing herbs for the ultimate relaxation blend. Aromatic peppermint and lemongrass help your nervous system unwind, allowing you to take a deep breath. Complex spices like saffron and star anise brew a subtly spicy sweet cup. Starting this New Year’s, take the time to nurture your mental health one cup of tea at a time. With each sip of Calming tea, you’ll feel the sense of calm wash over you.
2. Prioritize Sleep with Sleep Tight Tea
Sleep is the underappreciated key to all other health goals. It helps you recover from intense workouts and mental stress so you can feel refreshed in the morning. Yet so many of us have trouble falling asleep and rarely sleep soundly for a full night. A warm cup of tea might be just what you need to get your sleep cycle back into balance. Sleep Tight tea has the perfect blend of relaxing herbs to ensure you sleep deeply.
Sleep Tight herbal tea has chamomile and valerian root, two herbs that are known to promote restful sleep. Fragrant peppermint and lemongrass soothe your mind and wash away the worries of the day. A hint of fruity hibiscus and rosehips add tart and sweet notes. Try brewing Sleep Tight tea about an hour before bedtime and taking a few minutes to quietly sip the tea and unwind. You’re sure to be instantly whisked into pleasant dreams when you head to bed.
3. Go to the Gym Regularly with Endurance Tea
We know everyone flocks to the gym after New Year’s to get fit. But how many people stick to that resolution all year and beyond? Committing to an exercise routine takes both physical stamina in the gym and endurance of the mind. We have a tea that helps with both. Endurance tea is loaded with adaptogenic herbs that help your body and brain adapt to stress and thrive amidst challenges.
Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), ashwagandha, and schisandra help you push your workout harder than ever. And bold, earthy Pu-erh tea gives you the energy to wake up the next day and do it all again. Antioxidant gojiberries help you recover faster, and cinnamon helps combat inflammation. All mixed together, Endurance tea is full of spicy, robust flavor and plenty of health benefits to keep you energized all year.
4. Be More Productive with Sharp Mind Tea
Looking to kick off New Year’s with more productivity? Sharp Mind tea will help you tackle more work projects, hobbies, education, or whatever new things you’re chasing in 2022. Fueling your sense of purpose is part of a holistic healthy lifestyle. Whether it’s starting a side hustle designing websites or applying to graduate school, all you need is the right tea to spur your motivation. Luckily Sharp Mind tea has both the flavor and health benefits you need. Packed with sweet berries, banana, pomegranate, and mango, Sharp Mind tea brews a lively infusion.
Sharp Mind gives you a sustained energy boost throughout the day for consistent focus. Our blend of Yerba Mate, Pu-erh, and Purple tea provides a unique slow-release dose of caffeine. Yerba Mate starts it off with the initial caffeine punch to wake you up. Then Pu-erh tea stimulates the brain and digestive system to keep you alert and help you absorb more energy from your food. Finally, Purple tea floods you with healthy antioxidants to combat inflammation and keep you functioning at peak condition.
5. Elevate Your Morning Routine with Butterfly Blue Matcha
Morning rituals are a lasting trend, and 2022 is the time to take it up a notch. Matcha green tea is a perfect way to make every morning feel luxurious and inspiring. The relaxing process of whisking matcha in your cup and healthy boost of green tea antioxidants make it an ideal daily practice. Our Butterfly Blue Matcha is a unique blend of matcha and butterfly blue peaflower that adds an extra touch of beauty. With a bright blue color, this tea makes for an eye-catching drink!

6. Cut Down on Caffeine with Stimulating Tea
Caffeine is healthy in moderation, but in excess it may cause problems like anxiety or insomnia. Whether you are going cold turkey or just cutting down your overall caffeine intake, Stimulating tea can make the process easier. This herbal blend is caffeine-free but full of naturally energizing herbs and spices. Sweet and spicy in flavor, Stimulating tea will wake you up naturally.
Stimulating tea is formulated based on principles of Ayurveda, a natural medicine tradition from India. Invigorating herbs like ginger, cardamom and turmeric kick your body into action without needing any caffeine. The anti-inflammatory effects soothe caffeine-withdrawal symptoms like headaches and irritability. Stimulating tea tastes similar to chai and tastes delicious with a touch of milk and honey. Say goodbye to caffeine-withdrawal symptoms with a cup of Stimulating herbal tea every morning.
7. Lose Weight Naturally with Paradise Blend Tea
Don’t waste time with fad diets this year. Instead, focus on a healthy diet that incorporates foods and beverages that optimize your metabolism. Studies suggest that the catechins in green tea may aid weight loss over time. It supports weight loss with a combination of helpful benefits including:

Paradise Blend green tea is an excellent choice because the dried herbs and fruits make a naturally sweet brew. This way you don’t have to add any sweetener and can avoid the extra calories.

8. Stay Positive with Happy Tea
Start the New Year with a positive attitude! It takes an optimistic mindset to set bigger goals and go further than you ever thought possible. Whatever springs up in 2022, positivity will help you move through challenges with ease. And staying positive is even easier with a sip of Happy tea!

Do A Smarter Detox with Detox Tea
New Year’s is the time to detox from holiday excess. But it’s important not to overdo it. Our Detox herbal tea is a gentle yet effective remedy for the sluggish feeling of overindulgence. More importantly, it supports the liver in eliminating toxins from pollution, alcohol, chemicals and other harmful substances. An overburdened liver can put a strain on all systems of your body, so it’s important to give it a break once in a while.
Luckily, our Detox herbal tea is as tasty as it is healthy. Spicy ginger is softened with sweet licorice root, and lightened with a sprinkle of rose petals and elderflowers. Aromatic holy basil boosts overall health and a mix of dandelion and burdock roots support your liver. The flavor is strong yet fresh and sweet. A cup of Detox tea will revitalize you so you can jump into 2022 as your best self.
10. Cut Down on Alcohol with Sparkling Raspberry Wine Tea
Especially after the holiday season, a break from alcohol or minimizing your intake is a healthy choice. This year, try new beverages and mocktails that are both fun and relaxing without needing any booze added. Sparkling Raspberry Wine is a sophisticated tea that makes an excellent replacement for an evening glass of wine. Delicate white tea pairs seamlessly with flavors of tangy raspberry and sparkling wine. Sparkling Raspberry Wine tea is especially good iced.
