When it comes to a pick-me-up to kickstart the day, there's a high chance that you'll be reaching for a cup of coffee. We're guilty of this too. But consider this, while coffee boasts its own suite of antioxidants, tea waxes lyrical on it. Not to mention specific functions that belong in their own individual flavours and varietals. And no we're not referring to your overtly flavoured bubble teas, but the real deal — that comes in a wide spectrum of varieties and respective benefits. If it's glowy skin you want, or a faster metabolism that'll make you feel less guilty about chowing down sweet treats, there are different teas out there that cater to every single need.

In the midst of everything else that's going on in the world right now, some anxiety relief would be greatly appreciated right now. That's why we're gladly swapping out our coffee cups for tea filters and herbal tea bags that will invigorate our systems and help us keep our mental and physical health in check. Below, you'll find a starter pack of five different teas to reform your diet.

If you want a faster metabolism...

Feeling too bougie for Starbucks? TWG's Silver Moon Tea has the answer. A green tea that contains a fruity blend of berries and vanilla bouquet, it leaves a smooth flavour with just a hint of spice. It was created for the Mid-Autumn Festival, and was one of the very first teas created by the founders. Aromatic and luxurious enough to be enjoyed on its own, it's no wonder why this is an all-time favourite with sheiks on first-class Emirates flights.

Traditional Medicinals Organic Spearmint Tea was formulated to improve digestion and lower blood sugar levels. Think of it as the fun-loving, less intense version of peppermint tea, with its mildly sweet flavour. It can be enjoyed hot or cold, depending on your preference.

For better digestion...

Stash Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea is an interesting blend of ginger root, lemongrass, safflower, hibiscus and citric acid. It'll help you stay wide awake, even without containing any caffeine. It combines the tart lemony taste with the sharp, lingering bite of ginger, making it a great refreshment. Add a bit of honey to help you wash it down smoothly.

If you're into gut health and trends....

Not to go all crazy over kombucha (or fermented tea) like everyone else right now, but we totally get the hype. Organic Remedy's Kombucha is a sparkling live-cultured drink that tastes delicious, containing organic acids that are great for your gut and overall wellbeing. Organic, sugar-free, vegan, and unpasteurised, its all-natural goodness will leave you wanting more.
