Sweet treats definitely have their time and place, but if it's close to bedtime and you want something tasty without a sugar rush keeping you up all night, Mitchell's go-to tea is a great choice. Not only is this herbal blend packed with flavor (seriously: notes of cinnamon and orange, along with rosehip, lemongrass, peppermint, chamomile, anise seed, and ginger lend to its sweet and spicy name), it's naturally sugar-free and free of artificial flavors, so there's no sugar hangover happening here. And since you can prepare it either as a warm cuppa or as an iced tea, that means you can drink it year-round as a swap for your go-to latte habit if you'd like.

The blend's sweet and spicy flavors aren't just tasty to sip on, though. Peppermint and ginger root, for example, are both known to help with stomach issues like indigestion and nausea. The anti-inflammatory effects of ginger have also been associated with reduced joint pain in people with arthritis (ditto for rosehip and cinnamon). And, as you probably already know, there are few better elixirs to help lower stress levels and prepare you for a sound night's sleep than good ol' chamomile.
