Qi Teas, from Herbal Health, are wonderfully refreshing teas which taste delicious. They are 100% natural with no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives. Our teas are delicate and mellow and have none of the bitterness which can sometimes be associated with green tea. We use an abundance of real fruits and herbs such as Pomegranate, Blueberry, Ginseng, Ginkgo and Ginger for naturally healthy, tasty teas.
We all know that it is vital to drink enough fluids as not drinking enough can lead to dehydration – this can cause tiredness, weakness, headaches, constipation and may even harm your kidneys. Many of us force ourselves to drink the recommended 8 cups of water a day, not realising that tea, like water, is hydrating and can count towards your daily fluid intake target. Green tea has no calories and typically has around a quarter the level of caffeine compared to coffee.
If you’re trying to limit your caffeine intake, here’s a useful tip:
Caffeine is highly soluble, so when you prepare your cup of tea, pour just a small amount of hot water over the tea bag, swirl it around, then discard the water as caffeine will be one of the first compounds released. Re-brew with fresh water and you have a very low caffeine cuppa!
