Are you the type for whom getting out of bed just doesn’t happen without a big soothing gulp of tea? Yeah, us too. Bigelow Tea is such a great drink to start your morning with because it can help get you going without all the caffeine of coffee. It’s a cozy, warm, and comforting way to ease into the day- plus it comes in tons of flavors!
March is National Caffeine Awareness Month, and considering that 54 percent of Americans treat themselves to some form of caffeine every day according to Health Research Funding, it’s definitely worth noting how much less caffeine there is in tea when compared to coffee. Here’s how it adds up:
- Black tea contains 30-60 mg of caffeine – half (way less!) than coffee.
- Green tea has even less caffeine, around 25-50 mg.
- Decaffeinated teas have about 1-8 mg of caffeine.
- Herbal teas have no caffeine. (Making them perfect for bedtime, or anytime you need to chill out and relax!)
As you can see, tea is a fabulous better-for-you alternative to a jolting shot of espresso! And speaking of better for you, Bigelow’s Benefits line is chock-full of ingredients that will help you radiate greatness inside and out. With options such as Cinnamon and Blackberry Herbal Tea and Blueberry and Aloe Herbal Tea, you can choose to boost your mood and body all day long without any caffeine!
