The 15 Best Tea Brands to Cozy up with This Year
PureWow 2hrs ago
1. The Republic of Tea The Republic of Tea has been crafting artisanal tea blends since 1992, when it first started sourcing leaves and herbs from the finest tea gardens around the globe. The smell-the-roses philosophy behind the company (“sip by sip, rather than gulp by gulp”) pairs perfectly with a steaming hot cup of tea. But there’s more to this brand than pretty packaging (though the sleeks tins are quite nice) and tasty tea: Republic of Tea, a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership, boasts a business model that supports positive social and environmental change, so drinking this tea will make you feel good in more ways than one. As for the beverage menu, this brand has top-notch blends in every category, but their green teas are especially exciting. If you’re new to green tea, their Honey Ginseng blend is subtly-sweet and pleasantly mild—an excellent introduction that’s oh-so easy to sip.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
