For gorgeous skin: Harney & Sons Green Tea with Coconut and Ginger.

The glowing skin benefits of green tea are well known--and this is one of the most delicious blends we've ever tried. Not only will your complexion be brightened, but it will also help de-puff your face (the flavonoids in green tea are a great anti-inflammatory).

For fighting a cold: Two Leaves and a Bud Organic Peppermint Tea.

Peppermint is rich in Vitamin A, which is essential for a healthy immune system. It also has natural analgesic properties--which means drinking some of this will help soothe a sore throat. We love that Two Leaves' blend is both delicious AND caffeine free (that way we can get all the sleep that a cold requires).

For those mornings when you CANNOT GET OUT OF BED: Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme Tea.

If you're cutting back on coffee during the cold months, it can feel like your get up and go has gotten up and left you. Fortunately, a black tea (like Earl Grey) will give you a moderate hit of caffeine without the latte jitters. With around 42mg of caffeine per cup and a gorgeous citrusy aroma, this Harney & Sons Earl Grey blend will wake you up right.

For cold weather-induced insomnia: Adagio Teas Chamomile.

As kids, our moms would always give us chamomile tea to warm us up (and calm us down) before bed. Well, mother knew best: chamomile has a mild sedative effect and is reported to help anxiety, which promotes more restful sleep. Adagio's chamomile is aromatic and soothing, and especially delicious with a little honey added. Trust us.

For dry skin: Onno Behrends Rosehip Tea.

We all know that Vitamin C is crucial for healthy, happy skin--and what better way to supplement your intake than with delicious tea? Rosehips are super-high in Vitamin C; during WWII, the British government encouraged people to make rosehip syrup instead of relying on citrus fruits. Rosehip tea helps to soothe dry, itchy winter skin, and this Onno Behrend's is hands down the tastiest we've tried. Accept no substitutions.
