Whether it’s a flat white with almond milk or a strong mug of builder’s tea, most of us are heavily reliant on that first hit of caffeine to kick-start our day. ‘Hit’ being the operative word; these drinks give us an initial spike of energy, which quickly wears off until we reach for our next fix. Once you get trapped in that cycle, caffeine has an awful lot of unwanted side effects: restlessness, irritability, anxiety, digestive issues and insomnia, just to name a few.
Dr Jackson’s Expedition Tea is a caffeine-free wake-up call with a difference, keeping you motivated and hydrated without the astringency of coffee or black tea. Baobab funicles, a novel tea ingredient rich in flavonoid antioxidants, work with immune-boosting honeybush and rooibos leaves to revitalise the body and enliven the mind. Drinks containing rooibos are used by athletes in South Africa throughout the day – it provides measurable amounts of minerals and electrolytes. Rooibos is also known to ease nervous tension and settle the stomach, while liquorice roots are soothing and sweet, ensuring your scales are always perfectly balanced.
Enjoy the refreshing, vibrant taste of this unique blend first thing in the morning and throughout the day. This is the ideal beverage for maintaining balance and stamina for long adventures in the city or on expeditions that take you to more remote parts of the world. Avoid stimulants and replenish yourself with a cup of Expedition Tea instead and come nightfall; you’ll be the last one on the dancefloor and have hours of peaceful, uninterrupted beauty sleep ahead of you.
Baobab funicles: baobab is a “superfood” ingredient rich in flavonoid antioxidants, some of which give it its red colour.
Rooibos and honeybush: rooibos and honeybush are low tannin (this means they’re low in astringents that can unsettle the stomach), strengthen the immune system, and sharpen the mind. Rooibos is also known to ease nervous tension.
Liquorice: sweet and soothing liquorice settles the stomach, maintaining a healthy digestive system.
Perfect to kickstart your morning and enjoy throughout the day - and as it's caffeine-free, it won't impact a peaceful night's sleep.
To make the perfect cup, add freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-5 minutes according to taste.
Can also be enjoyed as a cooling drink in warmer weather: prepare as above, leave to infuse overnight in the fridge and serve over ice.
