Let’s get real for a moment, when it comes to the great balancing act of life – covertly texting with your bff while on a date, pumping while putting the final touches on that presentation –
women are pretty skilled.
But sometimes we need to put our superpowers on pause and give ourselves a little TLC. Whether you’re an (exhausted) new mom looking for a lactation-friendly tea, need help sleeping at the end of a hectic day, or are looking for new ways to natually relax (hello, valerain root!) we’ve got the perfect tea to suit your neeeds.
One caveat: you need to allow yourself a few minutes of downtime (yeah, we know it’s tough) to enjoy these made-for-you-brews. Because the one thing self-care can’t do is take care of itself.
Here are our top teas for women’s needs:
