Take a TEA BREAK: Why cutting caffeine could help with post-lockdown stress

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

Of all the possible ways to take a time out, soothe frayed nerves, and revitalise flagging energy levels…putting the kettle on has to be it!

It’s no surprise, then, that most of us have probably found our tea and coffee consumption creeping up over the lockdown period, with stress and worry keeping the currency of caffeine, and those small everyday comforts, at an all time high.

The worry of this trend, is that too much coffee and tea can actually have a less than positive effect on the very symptoms that it is often imbibed to help beat… stress and anxiety most notably.

The solution, far from giving up our favourite beverages completely, is to swap out one or two cups of our standard brew for a lighter, brighter alternative.

QUARTERPAST Tea Infusions are the perfect way to get that deliciously warming 'hug in a mug' without compromising your cortisol levels or hydration ... two of the major victims of drinking too much tea and coffee.

To make, simply fill 10% of a cup with your favourite infusion, top the remaining 90% of the cup with hot water, stir and steep for 2-3 minutes.

QUARTERPAST is packed with real ginger pieces, freshly squeezed lemon, and pure New Zealand honey, making it the perfect way to help to support your body’s natural immunity, whether as a refreshing start to the day, or even a mid-morning boost.

As a counterweight to the #coffeelife that is creeping into the mainstream, this caffeine-free pick-me-up might just prove invaluable - especially (and ironically) in times when life gives us lemons!
