Have you ever tasted CBD oil? If you have, then you know it can be a bit soily with its earthy and bitter flavour. It’s something that most of us will take time to get used to, as many of us find it a bit potent. Still, this does not stop people from taking CBD oil for its potential wide-range of benefits and ease of use.
The invention of different CBD products has proven golden for consumers who’d like to take CBD on a daily basis. Favourites include the edibles, cream and gels which are becoming more and more popular. These offer some of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to consume the non-psychoactive compound, bringing the relaxation and recovery effects so many of us desire.
It’s obvious that the more ways there are to take CBD the more users will take to it, especially if you can make it consumable like other food and drink. Hence why gummies and CBD drinks have shot up in popularity.
However, these days there are beverage options that are slowly gaining traction in the market. One such option is the CBD tea. This post intends to give anyone considering CBD tea everything they would want to know. After all, the British love their tea! So, let’s get into it…
Intro To CBD Tea
As the name indicates, CBD tea is a beverage infused with CBD. As the market of CBD is for wellness and health, it is not surprising for these teas to combine other healthy elements such as mint and chamomile for added benefit. However, of course some makers just offer pure hemp teas.
Although not the most convenient option, hemp leaves are immersed in hot water to make a healthy, earthy brew. Yes, you can directly buy these tea leaves of just straight industrial hemp. Adding a CBD dose to a relaxing drink, these leaves are rich in cannabinoids that get mixed with water producing a health-boosting tea.
However, many makers usually add other cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plants to the tea bags. To overcome its bitter hemp taste, you may opt for a sweetener if it's unflavoured.
Some people aim to make their own, as per scientific principles, water and oil do not mix. Thus, CBD oil and water will not mix if you are not using milk, cream or other fatty substances in your tea. In general, all cannabinoids are hydrophobic. Using even CBD isolate powder would not mix the CBD.
This is where CBD tea steps in, with this product containing water-soluble CBD, you can mix it easily. All you have to do is just add it to your tea and start sipping!
Water-soluble CBD tea is ideal for those who do not use milk or cream in their teas. But don’t forget to measure your CBD dose if aiming for certain effects.
While the CBD tea products are increasing online in terms of quantity and diversity, the choice is limited but still great with our selection of English Breakfast Tea, Sencha Green Tea, Tumeric & Ginger Tea and even CBD Infused Coffee!

Why Should You Drink CBD Tea?
If you are reading this article, it means you are considering a CBD product for your health. It also hopefully means you are aware of the benefits of the CBD. Remember as an active hemp compound, CBD is non-intoxicating. In other words, it does not get you high.
Even the World Health Organization (WHO) regards it as well-tolerated in humans and non-toxic by nature. It agrees that CBD has no adverse health threats. These claims of its potential health benefits with no risk motivate people globally to consume CBD.
A human body has an EndoCannabinoid System (ECS), a central regulatory system that regulates other systems such as mood, appetite, sleep, immune, and body mass to ensure a bodily balance. It is responsible to maintain the state of homeostasis. Within these systems are compounds called endocannabinoids.
According to the researchers, CBD can boost the release of these endocannabinoids, which in turn, ensures better functioning of the ECS. In simple words, it can support general health by ensuring the proper functioning of the ECS.
Keeping this in mind, CBD-infused tea is beneficial for the following reasons:
Has CBD to help regulate the ECS for a healthy lifestyle
Easy to make and consume
Specific benefits in case of different tea blends, such as green tea boosting metabolism due to its antioxidants
Can I Make CBD Tea at Home?
Yes, but it isn’t easy. Although you can buy infused tea bags and CBD leaf varieties, it is possible to make your CBD tea at home by using the ingredients that you already have. However, you’d need the right ingredients on hand.
If you are a tea fan, you may consider adding CBD to your beloved tea mix. Still, you may want to try adding another tea blend apart from CBD for added health benefits.
You should choose your tea blend as per your health goals to narrow down the list of different tea varieties. For instance, green teas are perfect for losing weight, while floral teas are ideal for boosting sleep quality.
Thus, you need to choose the right tea blend and CBD product (leaves, flavoured oils) to make tea at your home. Apart from that, you need normal tea-making ingredients namely, full-fat milk (if there is no water-soluble CBD), water, and a sweetener that is optional. Now, perform the following steps:
- Boil the water.
- Add your tea and brew it as per the steps given on its package. This is because depending on the tea blend you choose, some products will need special treatment such as an infuser.
- Mix milk and CBD in another container. The CBD amount to add will depend on the daily dose you have found for yourself or through research.
- Add this CBD and milk blend to the tea.
- Stir until the CBD mixes well.
- Mix some sweetener to make it delicious (optional).

Is There A Certain Time I Should Consume CBD Tea?
No! You can enjoy it anytime. Depending on whether you have consumed CBD recently or not, the duration for which the effects will last vary. However, this is not going to impact its effectiveness.
Do also consider whether caffeine is in your tea or not. Black and green teas so avoid these around bedtime.
Will CBD Tea Get You High?
No, provided it does not contain THC or the contained THC amount complies with the government-specified official limit. For example, in the UK, THC should be less than 0.2%.
THC, as a cannabinoid, is psychoactive. However, if it is within the legal limit, it will not get you high. This is because the limit is so low that it is insufficient to trigger psychoactive effects.
CBD tea is an enjoyable way to consume healthy cannabidiols to benefit your mind and body.
It is a handy way to have a daily dose if you are a regular tea drinker. This is regardless of whether you choose to buy our ready-made mix online or attempt to make your own CBD tea.
