Whether it’s jogging, yoga, tennis or weight training, we all know staying active is super key to a healthy lifestyle. But when it comes to keeping your body looking and feeling its best, hydration is number one. Sure, you can replenish those lost fluids with water. But where’s the fun in that? If you really want to jazz up a workout, reach for one of our favourite hydrators of all: iced tea. From pre-workout fuel to cool-down thirst-quenchers, these three refreshing blends are not only deliciously hydrating, they’re also filled with tons of feel-good ingredients. Time to get pumped!
Training for your first marathon? Or maybe trying out a new spinning class? Sometimes gearing up for a big workout sesh can be a little daunting. Get rid of those butterflies with a caffeine-free iced tea. Apart from staying hydrated, herbal infusions are a great gateway to gaining mental focus and ensuring you stay cool, calm and collected before breaking out a sweat.
Try: Serenity Now
This iceable tisane is packed with soothing ingredients like strawberries, lavender, hibiscus and rosehips to help dial back those pre-workout jitters and get you in the zone.
During your workout
What’s our secret to getting that second wind? Green tea. Mid-workout is the perfect time to reach for a caffeinated booster that’ll recharge your batteries and leave you feeling extra hydrated. How? Contrary to popular belief, the diuretic effects of green tea don’t counteract hydration since you’re mostly absorbing the water already present in the tea. Plus its jade leaves are packed with mega health benefits. Sip up and get pumped!
Try: Goji Green
This fresh and fruity blend combines lively green tea to give you the kickstart you need with some of nature’s most nutrient-dense superfruits: goji berries. One cup of this invigorating powerhouse is all you need to reignite your engine.
You sweated your heart out, put your muscles through the wringer and worked that Stairmaster like a pro. Nailed it! Now it’s time to give your body the Tea-L-C it deserves. That means winding down and rehydrating with a caffeine-free drink that’ll not only quench your thirst, but also replenish lost minerals and fluids.
Try: Sunny C
With a glow-boosting burst of sweet carrots, orange and hibiscus blossoms, this juicy blend is boosted with Vitamin C and is guaranteed to nourish those tired muscles… and kick that post-workout radiance up a notch.
