Studies have shown that drinking tea can calm the nerves and reduce stress.

But a recent study commissioned by an insurance company called Direct Line, found that it wasn't just drinking tea that did the trick. While brewing up a cup of black, green, white or any other preferred blend, going through the ritual of putting the kettle on, waiting for it to come to a boil and steeping your tea is calming in and of itself. Now add The Republic of Tea's ultra-soothing Serenity blend to the mix, and you're in for a relaxing experience. Coupled with lavender, basil and matcha green tea, these loose leaves are guaranteed to slow down your hectic day and let you breathe a little easier.
