Lots of us love a warming cup of tea as part of our bedtime routine. But why is that? And which teas are best to make sure we give ourselves the best possible sleep?
Not all teas are recommended right before bed. Tea with added caffeine and tea enjoyed with milk and sugar are best avoided too close to sleeping. But green and herbal teas enjoyed simply, might be the perfect solution to get the best possible rest at night.
Let’s look at just some of the reasons why green tea is the best night routine.
