More and more offices up and down the land are seeing one or more of the team moving from traditional teas to fruit or herbal brews.
Capsule machines like the FLAVIA and KLIX ranges even offer a selection of these non-standard teas alongside the better known brands. There’s no better measure for the rise in popularity of the drinks!
So is it worth adding these teas to your breakroom selection?
The Benefits of Fruit Teas
For anyone in your office trying to cut back on caffeine, switching a fruit tea or two into the rotation can give you the same keen refreshment without loading up the caffeine buzz.
Most fruit teas are also high in Vitamin C. This makes them especially useful if you’re trying to avoid a cold or shrug off the last of the effects. That alone should make them worth stocking in your breakroom!
There have been suggestions that fruit tea can help with weight loss. Their naturally sweet taste means you can cut down on sugar, too. They’re also packed with antioxidants, which reduce the ‘free radicals’ your body builds up. These free radicals make you more vulnerable to illness and poor health.
The Benefits of Herbal Teas
The benefits of herbal teas vary from tea to tea, but typically include more antioxidants (without cutting caffeine). Hibiscus tea has been found to reduce blood pressure, too.
There are many suggestions that herbal teas can help with weight loss, cold cures, and more, though little research has been done so far.
