The perfect tea for International Tea Day and Mental Health Awareness Week

Did you know, Brits consume a staggering 165 millions cups of tea every day! There’s a good fact for you on International Tea Day. Our nation loves putting the kettle on for a decent brew, but since today’s international celebration coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week, isn’t it time we considered new, innovative ways of enjoying our favourite drink?

Whether we’re relaxing with a cuppa lost in our own thoughts or debating about what the colour of the perfect brew is, tea has long formed an essential part of what it means to be British. However, whilst we’re all in isolation, not only has demand for tea rocketed, we also believe the cup of tea has brought small comfort (read that as important) for those who have been more affected than others during this stressful period.

Yes Zoom calls with friends and family help, and keeping ourselves active and occupied is important, but this has been a challenging and for some, a lonely time.

Step forward Hatters Hemp Tea.

They’ve innovated a new hemp-infused tea that offers the calming benefits of CBD – the active ingredient in cannabis that’s been proven to help treat pain, insomnia and anxiety. Available in four classic flavours – English Breakfast, Green, Lemongrass & Rosehip, and Chamomile – each comes with the benefits of CBD from the 50% hemp makeup of the teabag.

Now I know, what you’re thinking, what about the taste? Let me tell you firsthand, I’ve enjoyed more than one cup of Hatters Hemp English Breakfast Tea now as the taste is very subtle and not overpowering in the slightest.

If you still want a second opinion, then Simon Manthorpe, CEO and founder of Hatter’s Hemp Tea, explained: “Through a long process of product development and working with some of the finest specialists in their field we crafted a range of flavours that balance well with the naturally earthy notes of hemp. This means that the delicate flavours of Chamomile for example, have not been lost. In addition, across the four flavours on offer, no added flavouring has been added, but each flavour contains 50% hemp so you will still enjoy those natural hemp notes.”

Still not sure?

The launch of all four hemp-infused flavours comes after a hugely successful soft launch period of their vegan-friendly tea, which became the fastest-selling tea for 2020 in Holland & Barrett following their sale of over 25,000 boxes in their first month, demonstrating the desire that Brits have for the calming benefits of CBD during a period of great anxiety.

“Given the circumstances surrounding coronavirus, we believe that now is a great time to launch our hemp tea to help a nation of tea drinkers reduce their anxiety and enjoy some relaxation,” said Simon.

We couldn’t agree more.

Every flavour of Hatter’s Hemp Tea is now available in-store and online.
