Tea and Hydration

With Nutrition and Hydration Week kicking off this week, we've been thinking about how to hydrate ourselves better. A crucial part of health and wellbeing, hydration is hugely important in so many ways. Keeping our water levels up helps to maintain body temperature, lubricates our joints, prevents infections, delivers nutrients to cells and improves our quality of sleep and mood.

Of course, we drink gallons of tea, but could we be harnessing the power of herbs, fruits, and infusions more? And could we be turning the mundanity of drinking water into something more fun?

Everyday black and green teas do put a spring in our steps, revive and keep us alert, but we also love naturally caffeine-free teas that promote energy and focus. We've compiled a list of our favourite caffeine-free herbal and fruit teas to make hydration a bit more exciting and to highlight their benefits in maintaining our health and wellbeing.


Teas to Refresh and Hydrate


Ginger and Lemon

Our Ginger & Lemon herbal tea is a refreshing blend of ginger and lemongrass. With a natural warmth of ginger balanced perfectly by the cool freshness of lemongrass and rich spearmint, the tea also contains spicy liquorice root, pretty cornflower blossoms and warming pink pepper. Hydrating and enlivening, this classic herbal combination also soothes the body, promoting inner wellbeing.



Rooibos Cream Orange

One of our all-time favourites, Rooibos Cream Orange, is a seductive blend of bold South African Rooibos, orange peel and velvety Bourbon vanilla. Enlivening and aromatic, the infusion can be drunk by the gallon, and is delicious hot or made into a cooler (see our recipe below).




Mint and Lemongrass

Our Mint & Lemongrass is a tantalising herbal infusion that is tangy, fresh and pure. This refreshing blend of peppermint and lemongrass awakens the senses and hydrates from within. Its highly aromatic nature encourages inner peace and wellbeing while invigorating the body.



Rhubarb Cream

Our Rhubarb Cream fruit tea is a perfectly balanced infusion of apple, hibiscus, rosehip, pineapple, papaya, marigold blossoms, mango and rhubarb. The fresh and fruity rhubarb blend is rounded off with the delicate sweetness of genuine bourbon vanilla. Perfect served hot, or as a cooler, it offers a delightfully pink colour in the cup.



Red Fruit Pudding

Another cracking fruit tea to help you hydrate with full flavour and fun is our Red Fruit Pudding tea. Ideal for hot or cold brewing, the blend contains real elderberries, hibiscus, currants, blackcurrants and blueberries. The juicy fruit tea infusion is seriously delicious and reminiscent of homegrown berry compote.  



Rooibos Cooler Infusion Recipe

We love Rooibos tea, hot or cold, but if you fancy trying a refreshing yet bold tea cooler without the caffeine, give this recipe a go. The addition of honey gently sweetens the tea while the fresh lemon adds vital vitamins and zing.

It’s super simple and utterly delicious!


  • 1 teaspoon on Rooibos (we used Cream Orange) per person (x4 in a teapot is a good start)
  • 1 teaspoon on runny honey per person
  • 2 slices of fresh lemon per person



  • Pour freshly boiled water on to the rooibos in a teapot
  • Let infuse for at least 10 minutes
  • In a separate (heat-proof) jug, strain the Rooibos on top of fresh lemon and honey
  • Still until the honey is dissolved
  • Let cool completely
  • Pour over ice or serve at room temperature
  • Enjoy!
