Mother’s Day – Take Some Me Time With Tea

Reading time: 3 minutes

It’s officially Mother’s Day! With everything mom contributes to the family, today is the day to pamper her and show her how appreciated she is – and let’s be honest, she really deserves a whole Mother’s Week, right? As a mom, a lot of times she’s the caretaker, nurturer, organizer, and the one putting the bandages on the boo boos. Superwoman, if you ask us!

If you’re a mom, when was the last time you took a day to relax, sleep in, pamper yourself, or just do something fun? This is the perfect time to take an official ‘Me’ day, and Royal Cup has the perfect selection of teas to enhance your experience!


Better Sleep and Stress Relief

Mamas, we all know it’s crucial to take care of yourself first so you can be 100% fueled for your family, but we also know that that’s sometimes easier said than done. And it’s no surprise that sleep and stress relief are important factors in achieving that goal. May we present our Limoncello Chamomile tea? Chamomile is known for promoting sleep and relaxation, and our tea is blended with the perfect amount of lemon to whisk you off to the coast of Italy (well, maybe as a daydream).

Fuel Up

Are you sometimes plain drained from the rush of the daily grind and not had time to go to enjoy your favorite activities like bike riding, a brisk jog or getting together with your girlfriends?  Our ROAR Breakfast black tea may help you get going to conquer the day! Black tea contains more caffeine than other teas, helping to increase alertness and stimulate metabolism, but less caffeine than coffee, so it’s less likely to over-stimulate..

Pamper Your Skin

Sometimes the self-care just gets away from us, and Mother’s Day is a perfect reminder to prioritize YOU. It may be time to book in a mani/pedi appointment, try a new hair style, or get a facial. To give you a kick start in the clear skin department, try a soothing cup of Classic Green tea to start your day! Green tea contains anti-inflammatory properties and an antioxidant called EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) that is said to help prevent skin cancer, reduce skin irritation, swelling, and redness. 


Ok mamas, since you are now enlightened about the importance of ‘me time,’ it is time to schedule your official ‘Me’ day! So let’s raise a tea cup to all of the mothers out there and to all of the special ladies in our lives who we call mom…a cheers to you!
