Confession: I am not a coffee drinker. Never have been, even the smell of it sends me into a tailspin. I would be jumping off the walls in two seconds flat.
I do love a tea though; I drink cups of the stuff. I am a big fan of tea; I love trying as many types as I can (all natural is my thing).
A while ago I started using Hot Flashes tea at night, to help with those annoying hot flushes. For any women going through perimenopause/menopause if you are like me, you would try anything! It worked. I wondered if it was psychosomatic at first, but it worked, and I am sticking to it.
I have also been having a glass of goodnight tea every night and I do think my sleep has improved. It certainly has not got worse (as it often does during perimenopause). I get a solid eight hours a night. The tea is great, and the whole routine pre-bed, making the tea, taking time out to drink it, it is calming, it is relaxing, and it helps. It forces you to stop, slow down and relax. It is a bedtime routine I love.
After trying the tea from Fontanella for hot flushes and sleep, I started to research the other teas they had, and then came the obsession. I have tried bloating tea (it helps) and a new one for me is the workout tea, pre and post. You have it cold (again, new for me. I have never had cold tea). It is not only refreshing but so good post workout.
These teas are organic, have natural ingredients and are a great option. My top tip is to be consistent though. One night is not going to cut it. You need to stick to it, give it time, start a routine and go with it.
I will keep you posted on how I go, but so far, I am loving these teas with a purpose, especially the ones that are relevant to me in this stage of my life.
My favourite is:
Hot Flashes tea, Goodnight, Tea and Post Workout Tea (I have this one cold).
Top Tip: Consistency
What I love: It is all natural
