Therefore, drinking a cup of loose earl grey tea in the afternoons will give you the pick-me-up needed without the overwhelming buzz of a coffee. In addition to this, the bergamot found in loose leaf earl grey tea is renowned for its calming effect, so you’ll have the energy needed to get your work done and have your anxieties and tension addressed at the same time.
2. IMMUNE BOOSTING AND FLU SYMPTOM RELIEF
The bergamot in Earl Grey loose leaf tea has antiviral compounds, making it perfect for boosting our immunity and protecting our bodies from viral infection. If you’ve already got a cold, loose leaf Earl Grey can help to clear your head, soothe the throat, and help calm the system to promote restorative sleep. If you’re drinking earl grey whilst sick, add some lemon juice to your tea for added flu relief.
