10 New Teas To Keep You Warm And Healthy This Fall

10 New Teas To Keep You Warm And Healthy This Fall

The best teas to sip to keep you warm this fall, to sip while you gossip with your friends, and to switch up your daily coffee routine!


Tea is the best alternative to water or coffee! It combines the caffeine of your daily Starbucks and the eight glasses of water you were supposed to drink today. Every type of tea leaf has its own benefits for your health. This includes antioxidants, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, weight loss, protection of bones, strong immune system, etc. Enjoy the list of my favorite ones recently!

1. Harney & Sons Fine Teas: Matcha iri Genmaicha

Harney & Sons Fine Teas is a cult favorite brand for most tea lovers, and one of my favorite teas from the company is the Matcha iri Genmaicha. This is a must try for Matcha and Green Tea lovers. It gives a smooth, nonbitter taste with a bit of citrus. Harney & Sons Fine Teas is definitely worth the rave!

2. Surasang Korean Tea: Green Tea with Roasted Brown Rice

An alternative to the Matcha iri Genmaicha is the Susarang's Green Tea with Roasted Brown Rice. It will obviously be less flavorful than the Harney & Sons brews, but this is another raved about tea that you can find at Asian supermarkets.

3. Tradition Barley Tea

Another tea that newbies should know is Barley tea. My favorite brand is the Chinese brand "Tradition." It is simple and steeps well! Barley is a natural antacid that helps relieve the painful symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux diseases. There are also very good Trader Joe's and Japanese Barley Tea brands.

4. Tazo's Passion Tea

When I worked for a restaurant in New York City, one of our famous drinks was the Passion Fruit Lemonade. Tazo's Passion Tea is another favorite of mine and I am sure everyone has heard of Tazo. The brand is also used at your local Starbucks. This is for the ones who like the fruity side of teas.

5. Prince of Peace 100% Organic Oolong Tea

The Prince of Peace: Oolong is one of my favorite Oolong Tea brands. The con of this brand is that it is not too flavorful, but it does the job better than other tea brands I have tasted! I try to steep it a bit longer to bring more of the flavor into the water. Oolong Tea is usually what you will be served at dim sum restaurants and includes caffeine to wake you up!

6. Twinings Earl Grey Black Tea

Twinings is a brand that I believe comes as a favorite after Harney & Sons. The strength of the leaves gives a poignant aroma so the teas are not bland. Earl Grey is a classic black tea that can go with your snacks and milk!

7. Yogi's Ginger Tea

The tea brand Yogi is another favorite! Ginger tea helps get rid of your sore throats, fevers, digestion, and nausea. Whenever I had a fever my mother would cut ginger slices into a cup, crush them, fill it with honey and hot water to create my cure tea. Yogi is also a very famous and recommended tea brand!

8. Vita Chrysanthemum Tea Drink

Now I know this is cheating, but I am going to let you know that the best teas do not always have to be sophisticated and fancy. Vita's Chrysanthemum Tea Box Drink is one of the most known drinks for any East Asian American. We lived on this drink when we were younger. This was the drink our parents would approve for us to buy at the supermarket versus the sugar loaded juices. Be aware, you'll go through the pack quicker than you know it.

9. Wong Lo Kat Herbal Tea

Another tea that skews from the original leaves routine is Wong Lo Kat's Herbal Tea. This is definitely another addicting tea that helps cleanse your palette after eating too many spicy or fried snacks. It calms your sugar and sodium levels, as most Chinese herbal teas do.

10. Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move

Traditional Medicinals Tea is my number one favorite natural herbal supplement. This Smooth Move has always immediately aided in my digestion. By removing toxins from the body with this tea, I have had clearer skin as a result. Beware that this is a laxative. I'm not in love with the taste, but definitely my favorite one for the results!

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
