Dehydration can be a serious health concern, as human bodies require water to be healthy. Clean water is your best option for hydration, and no other beverage can truly replace it.
But if you’re like me, there will be times when you just don’t FEEL like drinking water only.
That’s when I turn to caffeine-free herbal tea.
I also keep a glass of water nearby and toggle between the two. That way I’m still working towards my daily quota of water and focusing on staying well-hydrated.
The herbal tea adds interest to my daily habits.
I often add a bit of local, raw honey for light sweetness, expanded complexity of flavor and the additional benefits that raw honey provides.
Some of my current favorites include Tipson Ashwagandha Mango, Traditional Medicinals Hibiscus, Stash Organics Very Berry and Rishi Blueberry Hibiscus. They are all organic, which is an important choice for reducing your exposure to the toxins used in conventional farming.
I’m really enjoying them iced during these hot and humid summer days. And when the weather cools, I will enjoy the warm comfort that comes from drinking them hot.
I also keep organic chamomile tea on hand, which I find very helpful when stress hits (I brought it to the hospital with me every day when my husband had his stroke in 2018).
So when you’re feeling bored of plain water, I highly encourage you to brew a cup of organic herbal tea. There are many different varieties to choose from, and it’s fun to experiment and find options to love!
