It is that time of the season when the experience of hot tea is so soothing and relaxing. I personally enjoy hot and cold tea all year round. Tea can have some good health benefits for our bodies. Tea can be soothing to a stay at home mom, after a long day at work, and/or after a workout. Below is Powerfitnessmom’s favorite 5 top teas. They are handpicked just for moms.
1. Teavana Chai Tea
Teavana is known for its layer of flavors. They feature creative combinations of teas, fruits, and botanicals. Every cup gives you a unique experience of vivid flavors and herbs that come from all over the world. A couple of the places these herbs come from are South Africa and the Pacific Northwest. I am in love with Chia tea in general, especially in the fall. It has those warm flavors like cinnamon, vanilla and fall spices. In the summer I will have chia tea on ice, and it is cooling & refreshing after a workout. Teavana tea comes both as tea bags and iced tea. They can be purchased at Starbucks, Amazon, Target,
* Oprah Winfrey has her own chia tea blend with Teavana
2. Tazo Tea
Tazo tea stands out for mixing unexpected bold flavors. They offer flavors like Turmeric Bliss, Prickly Pear cactus, Matcha Mate grapefruit, passion tea (hibiscus flowers, orange peel, rose hips, passion fruit flavor and a lively hint of cinnamon spice), just to name a few. They offer Lattes, Iced tea, and K-Cup Pods. Powerfitnessmom favorites are Vanilla Caramel Chia latte, Pumpkin Spiced Chia Latte, and Organic Baked Cinnamon Apple Tea. Tazo bold, bright package tea can be found at local grocery stores, CVS, and Target.
* It is said the Tazo tea original formulas can be found on an ancient stone called the Tazo Stone which was uncovered in 1987 on the Red Sea.
* Also sold to Starbucks in 1999
3. David’s Tea
David’s tea started out as a little store to educate people on tea and to bring a new variety to the shop. Not only do they bring the tea, but they also bring teaware, accessories, and more. I like how they offer equipment and gadgets to brew and fix iced tea as well as hot tea. If you are a mom like me that enjoys tea. This place should be your new hangout and you can go to the store to taste your tea before purchasing. I was astonished by how the tea is made with whole fresh herbs and ingredients. Once you receive your herbs you will place them into a filter and then drop the filter into hot water. If you aren’t into preparing your own tea bags, they offer infuser mugs, steeper, and matchmaker. Powerfitnessmom favorite tea picks are:
Just Peachy- because I love Peach iced tea it’s my favorite in the summer.
Matcha Matsu- I like to use green tea as a base for lattes, milkshakes,
Pumpkin Chia- I love chia and caramel and this tea is infused with both. The Pumpkin Chia starts with premium black tea a comforting touch of cinnamon and cloves, plus sweet caramel and pumpkin.
Lastly, Forever Nuts- if you are a cake fan this is your tea flavor. Good for a tasty dessert.
* Tea is the 2nd most popular beverage
* David’s tea started in Toronto, Canada
The luxurious tea has a long story behind its taste. It started with Shane Talbott who can smell and mix the perfect blend of specialty tea.

The premium tea comes as caffeinated and decaffeinated loose-leaf, all-natural teas blended with real fruit, flowers, herbs, and spices to create decadent flavor profiles.

As I get older, I really enjoy tea and their benefits. Some benefits are they contain antioxidants, may reduce the risk of heart disease & stroke, weight loss, boost the immune system and soothe the digestive tract. Try a cup after a workout, before bed or running errands, good healthy tea has been proven to be beneficial to moms.
