I previously wrote about the best CBD oil in the UK, while now I’m diving deeper into the best CBD tea you can purchase. I love consuming it in tea form, an incredibly relaxing option in the evening and helping to alleviate any stress and improve your quality of sleep. In fact, if you would like to learn more about this, you can read my guide on how CBD affects sleep.

Choosing The Right CBD Tea
Quantity Of CBD
It is easy to be swayed by your favourite flavours, but you should consider how much CBD you plan on consuming in a day so you know how many mugs to make and whether you’re reaching the right quantity.
Some are very tasty, but may only have 5mg or less, which won’t make much of an effect on most people, unless you have very low tolerance levels. Just the same, a hard-hitting 50mg of CBD tea bag might give you a much stronger amount than is necessary. Experimentation is critical.
The time of day you plan on drinking the tea should be important in your purchasing decisions. For example, the chamomile blend is a great option if you drink it in the evening, however the matcha green tea wouldn’t be so great with copious amounts of caffeine.
I’ve actually made this mistake a number of times, forgetting it’s still a cup of tea and will potentially contain caffeine.
I can’t express this enough, however long it recommends on the side of the pack, double it. They will often state 3-5 minutes brewing time, but I had to write a paper on green tea back in the day and the quantity of antioxidants in the drink increased based on how long you allowed it to brew. For this reason, it was recommendable to wait 10 minutes to ensure you have got the full benefit of the drink. Don’t cut yourself short and get impatient.
Having said that, do be aware that the taste will be stronger longer you leave the bag in. I don’t mind a strong taste if it yields greater results, which is the whole reason you’re buying cannabis tea.
Economies Of Scale
I have listed prices, but some of the brands offer deals if you buy in bulk, such as 3 or 6 boxes, which makes it cheaper per cup. If you get multiple flavours, it means you can split your risk and invest in a wide selection.
You may notice I might have been slightly harsh to the turmeric & ginger flavoured tea, if you have tried one like this before in the past and you liked it then please go right ahead, but personally I’m not as big a fan of the flavour compared to any of the other options. Turmeric is incredibly healthy, recognised nowadays as a superfood ingredient, however the taste is quite intense for me. This is where there is an inevitable level of personal taste included, which I worry about putting some people off as it’s all subjective.
If you’re looking for the closest thing to your normal brew then English Breakfast is a good option, while if you want a powerful hit of CBD then expect that CBD smell/flavour. I actually quite like that taste, I have become accustomed to it and generally prefer that over flavoured options nowadays.
Strongest CBD Tea UK
I’ve spoken about the best CBD tea in the UK, however if your focus is getting the highest level of CBD possible then so far the greatest I’ve found is Brothers Apothecary, which as you can see above, packs an astonishing 62.7mg in each tea bag! I can’t say I’ve had another close to that, with the next containing 50mg, but I will keep updating this over time.
Requesting A Lab Report
If you can’t find the lab report on the brands website, which is the case for many CBD tea’s, you can request this from the brand by email or on their social channels. Every product I’ve reviewed on CBD Sloth, I’ve made sure they have a lab report matching the batch I’ve been sent.
This isn’t just to ensure that the product contains the stated quantity of cannabinoids, it’s also to ensure it doesn’t contain any residual solvents, pesticides or heavy metals.
