If you’re looking for the perfect drink to accompany your workout, look no further than functional tea! There are tea blends that can help you at every stage of your workout from warm-up to that blessed cooldown.
Best Tea Before A Workout:
Before you hit the mat what you’re looking for is energy and motivation. You want to feel alive enough so you don’t crawl back under the covers to rewatch The Bachelor. We get that, and we got you.
Tea is an awesome pre-workout drink because it gives you a clean source of energy. It doesn’t contain so much caffeine that you’re jittery and dropping dumbells left and right. Instead, it provides a steady stream of energy that’s just what you need to get moving and power through a workout.
Our best pre-workout tea is Energize. This tea contains Yerba Mate, a South American herb that provides energy and a host of other benefits. Is yoga your exercise of choice? Yerba Mate will make you feel more focused than a Tibetan Monk in meditation.
Best Tea During A Workout:
Skip the sports drinks and high sugar energy drinks during your workout. Did you know a can of Redbull has 37g of sugar? Now that’s some BULL right there. These types of drinks might give you a temporary kick, but you’ll ultimately crash and the sugar is wreaking havoc on your body. Instead, reach for some of our cold brew iced tea!
Iced tea is the perfect drink to bring to the gym because it’s refreshing, hydrating, and full of antioxidants. You need to replace all that water you’re sweating out, and there’s no better way than a glass (or to-go bottle) of cold tea.
Our pick for the best cold brew to drink during a workout would be Detox. Served hot or cold, this delicious green rooibos blend will get rid of toxins faster than you can sing the chorus to Britney Spears’ Toxic.
Best Tea After A Workout:
After your workout, the focus should be on recovery. You want to rest your body so you’re ready to perform again tomorrow!
We recommend adding our Collagen Powder to our hydrating Glow blend. Glow is a green rooibos tea that has Hibiscus and Butterfly Pea Flower to help you feel calm and glowing after your workout. You can also mix in a scoop of your favorite pre-workout or protein powder to give your tea an extra functional kick.
