Wake Up to a Cup of Tea
While coffee may the traditional morning staple for many Americans, more and more people are turning to tea as a healthier, less harsh alternative for a morning cup. Whether you’re looking for a stimulating, caffeinated morning brew, or are looking to incorporate a caffeine-free option into your morning routine, these teas are sure to prepare you for the day ahead!
If you’re looking for a little extra boost in the morning, a cup of tea is the way to go. With roughly half the caffeine of a cup of coffee, tea is stimulating and energizing without any of the harshness of many coffees.
For those looking for a strong, rich cup of morning tea, Irish Breakfast is a sure-fire winner.

Even if you’re a regular tea drinker, you may not be familiar with pu-erh tea. An aged, fermented tea with a long history in China, pu-erh tea is a dark, rich tea with a characteristic smoothness and none of the tannic bite of a typical black. We love Caramel Pu-erh with a splash of milk for hearty, slightly sweet morning cup.
Nutty Mocha Mate
While yerba mate does contain caffeine, it’s not technically a tea, and is instead produced from a species of holy plant native to South America. Popular in countries like Argentina and Chile, mate is traditionally drunk out of a gourd with a hollow straw known as a bombilla. If you’re looking for a stimulating, energizing cup with a bright mocha flavor, our Nutty Mocha Mate is sure to hit the spot.
