If you're looking to pull an all nighter... 

First of all, staying up all night is in no way good for your health, but if you are that determined to see the sun fall and rise in the same sitting black tea has ample amounts of caffeine. Black tea is also rich in antioxidants and doesn't leave a nasty after taste, unlike coffee. (You can read all about how much tea is better than coffee in our previous post, 6 Reasons to Make the Switch from Coffee to Tea.) Our flavorful blends are full of other tasty, beneficial ingredients as well.

Sinceritea is a robust blend of spicy chai, black peppercorn, crystallized ginger, and mild coconut flakes. Ready to both cleanse and energize you, cinnamon and ginger is very good for digestion while the caffeine in black tea will keep you tastefully awakened. 

Our Tranquilitea blend is a calming blend of fragrant earl grey, lavender, and coconut flakes. Antioxidant rich black tea gives you the perfect amount of caffeine while simultaneously reducing stress to keep you clear minded and ready to burn that midnight oil. 

If you're looking for a little pick- me- up, mildly caffeinated green tea from our fruity Curiositea blend is excellent in keeping you focused and happy. Mixed with juicy pineapple pieces and coconut flakes, you won't even crave a midnight snack.

If you're aching for some beauty sleep... 

Try a nice, hot cup of our Amitea blend- a subtly, sweet mix of chamomile, coconut flakes, and hibiscus. Chamomile flowers for centuries have been used as a natural herbal remedy for getting to bed and science has proven history doesn't lie. The enzymes in the mellow- tasting flowers actually work to promote relaxation and the warmth from a hot cup only adds to the effect.  Though it's completely sugar and caffeine free (perfect for winding down), none of the flavor is sacrificed thanks to hibiscus- the same tropical flower that gives the tea its signature scarlet color.  

  Herbal tea is the perfect before bed treat. (Disclaimer: Though tea is delicious for humans, certain ingredients in tea, though mainly caffeine which our herbal blends are free of, have enzymes that are dangerous for consumption in cats and other pets.)
