Keep Cool and Carry On With Our Collection of Thirst Quenching Teas
Last week saw the hottest day ever recorded in the UK, with temperatures hitting 40°C in some places, and everyone doing their best to keep as cool as possible
It’s important to keep hydrated to replenish lost fluids when the weather is hot, and plain water, cordials or soda drinks can be thirst-quenching and refreshing. But if you’re not keen on plain water, and don’t want the added calories from soda drinks or squashes, a hot cup of tea may, surprisingly, be a good alternative to help you keep cool. It can effectively do this by raising your body temperature, making you perspire, and when the perspiration evaporates it quickly cools you down. And if you prefer it cold, a delicious pitcher of iced tea or cold brewed tea is perfect to serve to friends in the garden, or keep in the fridge for an instant cooler
Tea-Direct has a huge range of teas that can be enjoyed hot or cold during the summer months. Why not try one of these next time you’re feeling the heat
Fruit teas or tisanes are refreshing, light beverages derived from infusing dried fruits in water. They make wonderful iced and cold brewed tea drinks to sip on a summer’s day
Flavoured teas are usually black or green teas with a range of fabulous flavours added to give a new spin on traditional teas
Herbal teas are created from an infusion of herbs, flowers, spices or fruits. They are usually caffeine-free, so can be enjoyed at any time of day
Rooibos teas are naturally caffeine-free, and there are many flavoured varieties to choose from. Rooibos iced tea has become a popular beverage in recent years.
