Suffice it to say that on a trip like that, the hours, days, customs clearings, airports, meals taken at odd times, countries, languages and time zones blend into a jet-lag so thick it feels like walking you’re walking through soup. In a word, it’s bonkers. What does it feel like? If asked, you might well have heard our Master Bender say something along the lines of, “I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus!” Or, “I feel like I’ve been shot out of a cannon.”
Now, since these trips are business trips, not vacations, when our personnel arrive overseas they have to gather themselves quickly and conduct business. So, in addition to learning a thing or two about jet lag, we’ve also learned a few ways to combat the affliction. In addition to staying hydrated, exercising and eating well, we’ve found that a nice cup of tea can help out nicely. To that end we’re pleased to offer some of our Master Blender’s secret Jet Lag tea recipes. This fragrant blend of green teas, herbs and all-natural strawberry flavoring will help clear your mind after long flights and have you ready to face a new day…in Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, Timbuktu or wherever else you might find yourself!

Jet Lag tip! Pack Jet Lag teas for long haul flights. Simply bring along a tin of tea and a few tea filters. Once you’re on-board, ask your flight attendant for a cup of hot water. Brew yourself a cup, lie back and enjoy the flight.
