Warm Drinks for Cooler Days #wellbeingwednesday

I love both waking up and winding down with a warm drink. It’s not only comfort in a cup, but it can also give a boost, promote relaxation, or offer nourishment — all depending on what’s in it. Consider everything that is in your cup and the cup itself! Choose to sip what is good for your body and for the planet (it’s no surprise that the two are correlated).

Lunitouti Reusable Tea Bags

(Right) Lunitouti Reusable Tea Bags Most disposable tea bags (even organic ones) are manufactured using paper that’s been bleached with chlorine, sealed with thermoplastic and coated in epichlorohydrin and dioxin to strengthen the paper. When steeped in water, it has carcinogenic effects. Instead, opt for loose leaf teas steeped in something clean and reusable, like these bags, handmade with organic cotton and hemp in Montrèal. www.lunitouti.com

Lemon Lily Natural & Organic Loose Leaf Tea

Lemon Lily is certified organic and only uses the finest tea and ingredients. Try their Turmeric Matcha or their Focus Tea for a boost in your day.  www.lemonlily.ca

Wize Monkey Coffee Leaf Tea

While coffee can only be harvested three months a year, these leaves can be harvested year-round, providing full-time employment for the farmers. www.wizemonkey.com

Safe Mugs

(Left) Safe Mugs Make sure your pot or mug doesn’t leach chemicals into what you’re sipping. 100% borosilicate glass (laboratory grade, heat resistant) is my first choice, but I also love my “Not Made in China” mug, handcrafted in Montreal by kind people doing good business. www.hugodidier.com
