If you are searching for the ultimate source of refreshment and hydration, minus the sugar load and with a hint of “Oooo that tastes delicious!” then search no more, Healtheries has your summer hydration sorted with a great range of teas that tick all the boxes!
Summer is a great season for making efforts toward healthier living. Positive vibes are at an all time high, with holidays, socializing and sun to brighten everyone’s mood. This time of year also brings an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, making it a whole lot easier to prepare and enjoy a variety of nutritious foods. Summer is the perfect time for getting out and about, making the most of the good weather & getting stuck into some good old fashioned outdoor activities.
Don’t forget the importance of keeping yourself well hydrated! The amount of fluid we need to stay adequately hydrated varies with age, size, the weather and how active you are, but as a rough guide, the NZ Nutrition Foundation recommends 6-8 cups of fluid each day for adults, and 4-6 cups for children. Why undo all the benefits of healthy summer living; fresh foods & exercise, by then loading yourself up on sugar laden drinks?
If you’ve made a pledge to decrease your families sugar intake this summer, you will be wanting to steer clear of fruit juices and soft drinks, but perhaps you find that plain water doesn’t always excite the tastebuds either?
Healtheries Iced Teas now come in 3 great new flavours, so now you have six to choose from to keep your family hydrated, healthy and happy this summer.
Healtheries Green Tea Lime & Mint Flavoured Iced Tea is a revitalizing antioxidant- rich green tea infused with the invigorating flavours of citrus lime and cool, refreshing mint. This blend provides the perfect energizing sip to get you through the day.
Healtheries Pink Grapefruit & Orange Flavoured Iced Tea is a citrus- bliss wake up call for your senses. The energizing sparkle of pink grapefruit accenting the mellow tang of orange. Mmmmmm…. Savour the taste of summer!
Healtheries Blackcurrant & Boysenberry Flavoured Iced Tea is an invigorating and luscious blend of subtly sweet berry goodness.
Healtheries Iced Teas are super easy to make, just add cold water and infuse to your liking of strength. The tea bags are incredibly versatile, drop one in your water bottle before hitting the gym, or add to sparkling water for something a little fancy! They can even be drunk with hot water if you prefer.
After some warmth and comfort? Perhaps as your morning wake- up cuppa, or for those cooler evenings? Healtheries has a great selection of fruit flavoured herbal teas with flavours that are just ideal for summer including favourites Tropical, Superfruits and New Zealand Nectarine with Apple tea.
