Whether it’s a flat white with almond milk or a strong mug of builder’s tea, most of us are heavily reliant on that first hit of caffeine to kick-start our day. ‘Hit’ being the operative word; these drinks give us an initial spike of energy, which quickly wears off until we reach for our next fix. Once you get trapped in that cycle, caffeine has an awful lot of unwanted side effects: restlessness, irritability, anxiety, digestive issues and insomnia, just to name a few.
Dr Jackson’s Expedition Tea is a caffeine-free wake-up call with a difference, keeping you motivated and hydrated without the astringency of coffee or black tea. Baobab fruit, a novel tea ingredient rich in flavonoid antioxidants, work with immune-boosting honeybush and rooibos leaves to revitalise the body and enliven the mind. Drinks containing rooibos are used by athletes in South Africa throughout the day – it provides measurable amounts of minerals and electrolytes.
