CBD tea in the UK - is it good and where to buy it from?
And relax- it is time for a nice and relaxing warm cup of tea. CBD & Hemp Tea have started to become more and more popular, based on their health and well being benefits. Not only are hemp teas refreshing, sweet and relaxing but they are a great source of healthy fats, antioxidents and cannabinoids.
CBD teas can be a little hit and miss though- often what you may be buying is a hemp flower that is being mis-sold as tea. You may need to be careful not to order what you think is tea, and end up getting a full-blown cannabis bud. If you're not used to the buds then you may get a little bit of a heart attack.
The very best CBD tea in the UK are those that are 100% natural and not sprayed with harmful chemicals or pesticides. They also include some flower, some leaves and seeds. The whole hemp experience!
We'll be recommending some UK based CBD tea brands in this guide, but first let's discuss how to use CBD tea and what the benefits are:
How to use CBD Tea?
This is a very easy process- if you have ever used loose leaf hemp tea before, then you do not need to read any further. If you haven't got one at home, it may be worth investing in a loose leaf tea pot or a coffee strainer will do.
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 clensing nutrients, amino acids, terpenes and cannabinoids. Although this is a small amout of cannabinoids, you do feel great after a cup of this tea.
Ideally, this tea can be drunk as a caffine 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
Where to buy CBD tea 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:
Hope CBD tea
We're big fans of the Hope CBD tea, despite the bags being quite fragile (and often falling apart). The taste is good 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. You get around 20 bags and each bag contains about 20mg of CBD.
Amma Life CBD tea
Amma Life have 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.
Karma Coast CBD tea
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.
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!
