Tea is my go-to beverage of choice. I love it hot or iced and there’s so many different flavors I never get tired of it. It’s the perfect travel companion! Tea bags are small and compact; I always have room for them even though I travel backpack only. One of my favorite things about taking tea along? It will never be confiscated by TSA!
Bigelow has released a new line of tea called Benefits and I’m super excited about their unique flavor combinations! They’re all non-GMO, blended and produced right here in the USA. Plus, they taste so good! So, I headed down to my local Fred Meyer and I found the Bigelow Benefits line.
Bigelow Benefits contains 7 unique flavor combinations designed to naturally combat every day issues in your life that’s keeping you from living well. It supports everyday wellness and their ingredient list is one I can totally get behind. I’ve incorporated a lot of these teas into my daily life so of course I’m going to take them with me when I travel!
I tend to get a little nervous when I fly and my stomach can get butterflies. Keeping Bigelow Benefits Calm Stomach tea on hand has been perfect! Their Ginger and Peach herbal tea is just what I reach for when the flight attendants come through with their service cart. I just ask for a cup of hot water and I’m well on my way to kicking off my trip right.
Stepping foot on an airplane means dealing with pressure changes, cramped space and air so dry you’re guaranteed to get dehydrated. When I start to feel a little run down (on a plane or in daily life), I like to get some Echinacea in my system for a boost. This tea combination with lemon is both crisp and relaxing.
Long flights leave me exhausted and the only thing that can perk me up is caffeine! I fell in love with matcha everything while I was in Japan last summer so I’m always on the lookout for new things to try at home. This flavor of green tea gets me the caffeine I need while providing a unique peppery kick to get me moving!
I, admittedly, put sugar in most of my tea. I’ve been trying really hard lately to cut down on my sugar intake but it is so hard! Blueberry tea is one thing I never have to put sugar in. The naturally sweet flavor is always enough for me! This makes it a great tea to travel with as you won’t have to carry any sugar and it can help you combat those sweet temptations you encounter while abroad.
Time zone changes mess up your sleep patterns and sleep is essential to living well! When you’re traveling and changing time zones it can be unsettling and difficult to fall asleep at the right time. Making the most of every day that I’m traveling is so important to me and I’m not about to ruin my own day because I couldn’t fall asleep the night before.
I like to make sure I stick to my night time routine as a way to show my body it’s time for bed. I bring my favorite face scrub and lotion, Sleep Chamomile and Lavender tea and settle in with a good book. After all, I always fall asleep faster with a book than with TV!
When we’re in a strange or unfamiliar place we tend to exercise less, eat more junk food and we don’t get enough sleep! Not to mention, traveling can be stressful even though often times we do it to relax! Tea offers me the comforts of something familiar while keeping my body balanced. It helps me wake up in the morning or relax and get my body ready for bed at night. Check out the new Bigelow Benefits line and take some with you next time to hop on a plane! You’ll expand your taste buds and start your trip off right!
