This is the most comprehensive guide to CBD tea that you'll find on any UK blog. We've done the hard work (well, it wasn't very hard actually. Quite enjoyable really.) and tried all of the most popular CBD tea brands in the UK. What we've found is quite shocking. We discovered that:

  • Some so-called CBD tea doesn't actually contain CBD
  • It can be really expensive
  • It can taste really bad

Like we said, it was hard work. But here it is, our massive guide to the best and worst CBD teas we could find:

 

How to use CBD tea?

Firstly - how do you use CBD tea?

Most of the brands we tried sold their tea in bags, so that was easy enough. But there are a few brands out there selling loose leaf hemp tea, and that can be a little trickier but still pretty straightforward.

Add one or two spoonfuls of the tea into the pot and allow it to sit for at least 2 minutes. This will ensure the best brew time to unleash all of the cleansing nutrients, amino acids, terpenes and cannabinoids. Although this is a small amount of cannabinoids, you do feel great after a cup of this tea.

Ideally, this tea can be consumed as a caffeine-free alternative to breakfast tea, or coffee, during the day; or it is ideal for just before bed! After trying all of the loose leaf teas we think that the Turmeric & Hemp- and Hemp & Herbs are the best!

What are the benefits of CBD tea?

Hemp tea is full of goodness and can be really beneficial for a number of reasons:

  • it's relaxing - having a warm drink after a long day is the perfect way to unwind, and the small amount of CBD found in hemp tea will help to relax you and will stimulate your encdocannabinoid system making you feel great!
  • it's tastier than other CBD products - part of the issue with CBD products is that often they don't taste great! If you're not a fan of the strong taste of oils and pastes, then hemp tea can be a great tasting alternative.
  • It works in tandem with other CBD products (oils and pastes) - CBD works best when consumed alongside a mix of cannabinoids, and because hemp tea contains a good mix it's ideal for consuming alongside your other CBD products. This can help you benefit from the "entourage effect"
  • It helps digestion - warm drinks are excellent for digestion and hemp tea is no exception here, drink it after a meal to settle your stomach

What is the best CBD tea to buy in the UK?

Now onto our recommendations for where to buy CBD tea from in the UK. We've tried a number of brands and rounded up our top 3 picks for you to check out. We paid close attention to the:

  • price
  • taste
  • effects

to determine which was best. Let's get into it:

Love CBD hemp CBD tea

Love CBD tea (great taste)

Love CBD is a massive brand here in the UK, so we were excited to see that they sell their own tea. Like many of the brands here, this tea is listed as 'hemp tea' and not as 'CBD tea', but seeing as it is sold by Love CBD and is made with Cannabis Sativa L., we know it has some cannabinoid goodness. It's also made with Peppermint, Ginger and Marigold so has a really nice flavour. Our main issue here would be that it is basically a hemp tea, so isn't really a good way of getting a significant amount of CBD into your system.

How much is it? £5.99 per box of 10 bags

Where can you buy it from? Here:

Body and Mind Botanicals CBD tea

Body and Mind Botanicals CBD tea (40mg CBD per bag)

What we really love about the CBD tea from Body and Mind Botanicals is that it is unashamedly a CBD product, whereas so many of the teas we've sampled list their products as "hemp tea". Right on the front of the packet there is a label saying how much CBD there is in each bag, and the pack is full of information about CBD (and detailed instructions). Interestingly, Body and Mind Botanicals claim that there is 40mg of CBD per bag. This is whopping and seriously impressive, but we're not quite sure how accurate that is. It certainly has some in there but we'd know if it was 40mg (we'd feel it!). This is also vegan, Social Association Organic approved and has won Great Taste awards. Amazing!

How much is it? £5.99 per box

Where can you buy it from? Here:

Jacob Hooy hemp tea

Jacob Hooy hemp tea (20 bags)

We might not have been too impressed with the Jacob Hooy CBD oils you can buy from Holland & Barrett, but we actually thought their hemp tea was pretty awesome. The taste was really pleasant and we liked that each bag had a tag (makes it nice and easy to get the bag out once it has finished brewing - just a small thing us Brits appreciate!). Overall, we were impressed.

How much is it? £5.99 per box

Where can you buy it from? Here:

Hempura CBD tea with Vitamin B1

Hempura raspberry CBD/hemp tea (with Vitamin B1)

We only tried this recently but we really like it - the raspberry taste really comes through and we love how you also get some Vitamin B1 alongside your CBD/hemp. It's also lab-tested and made in the UK, awesome. Definitely give this a try.

How much does it cost? £9.99 for 20 bags

Where can you buy it from? Here:

Hope CBD tea

Hope CBD tea (our favourite)

Yep, this is our favourite CBD tea. We're big fans of the Hope CBD tea, despite the bags being quite fragile (and often falling apart). The taste is great and it is best consumed in the evenings before you head off to bed. You can grab a bag for around £10 so it's quite expensive, but not outrageous compared to many of the other brands we've reviewed in this guide.. You get around 20 bags and each bag contains about 20mg of CBD.

Buddha Teas CBD with Green Matcha

Buddha Teas (CBD blends & infusions)

Buddha Teas is a popular brand of tea from the UK, typically producing classic teas like chamomile and peppermint. But recently they added a section to their website which includes a selection of CBD blends and infusions, and we're big fans of this range. Blends include chamomile with CBD, green matcha with CBD and Turmeric & Ginger with CBD (which is the most popular blend in their range based on reviews). Definitely explore the full range for yourself on the Buddha Teas website.

Euphoria Green Tea CBD

Euphoria Green Tea CBD

This is quite a unique CBD hemp tea because it hasn't been blended with anything else, it is simply a CBD tea. It'll cost you £10.95 for 20 bags but you'll only get 2.5mg of CBD per bag.

Buddha Teas CBD with Green Matcha

Doctor Herb hemp tea 

At the time of writing, all of the Doctor Herb hemp CBD teas have been put out of stock. So we're not totally sure if you'll be able to buy these, but we do know that they're a good brand and we might be able to buy them in the future. You get 4.4mg of CBD per serving and it'll cost you £34.95 per jar.

Rokit Pods CBD tea

Rokit CBD tea pods

If you've got a Nespresso machine then you probably normally use it for your CBD coffee pods, but the Rokit CBD tea pods are another great option. Made with matcha green tea, each pod contains 5mg of CBD and is totally THC free. You get 10 pods per pack for only £12.95 which is a pretty great price. Definitely give these a shot!

Equilibrium CBD tea bags

Equilibrium CBD Tea Bags

Equilibrium is a brand we haven't featured too many times on our blog, but they do have a great range of CBD tea bags. The gourmet tea comes in 3 different blends - English Breakfast, Sencha Green Tea and Turmeric and Ginger. Each bag of this tea contains 3.4mg of CBD which is a pretty nice dosage, and a pack containing 12 tea bags will cost you £13.95.

Amma Life CBD tea

Amma Life tea

Amma Life has a popular range of CBD tea, and they've even got a CBD & Mint option. For a box of 20 bags it'll cost you £11 roughly, so still pretty expensive. But what we really like about these is the taste. There are lab reports for these that you can check out too which is useful.

What makes Amma life tea stand out is the taste. The mint tea is naturally caffeine-free and compliments the sweet flavour of the hemp. Very nice!

Karma Coast CBD tea

Karma Coast

Karma Coast are best known for their vapes and oils, but they also have a great range of CBD tea that is well worth checking out. This is a little different from the other recommendations in this list because it is loose tea, so you'll need a teapot and strainer to make it work. But if you have the equipment it is totally worth it! Grab this CBD tea for only £10 for 30g, and enjoy the CBD as well as the terpenes.

In Conclusion

CBD tea might not be the most effective way of consuming CBD, but it can be a great addition to any CBD routine. It's great for drinking in the evenings when you want to wind down. Definitely take a look at the brands we've mentioned!
