CBD-infused teas have become an incredibly popular way to enjoy your daily intake of the substance and experience its potential wellness benefits. Unlike marijuana, known for its intoxicating effects, CBD tea bags are typically made from hemp plants and contain cannabidiol (CBD) rather than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for that feeling of high.

CBD tea, sometimes also called hemp tea, is believed to provide exciting effects, from reducing discomfort and stress to supporting digestive health. Still, the extent of these benefits will vary depending on the specific tea and the individual. 

While it generally has a pleasant taste similar to regular tea, some prefer adding a flavor boost to make it even more enjoyable. Whether you’re drinking a pre-made CBD tea bag or infusing your favorite herbal tea with a few drops of our broad-spectrum CBD oil, adding lemon and cinnamon to your cup can create an even more refreshing and delicious beverage that’s perfect for relaxation.

Furthermore, if you want to get the most out of your CBD tea, it’s also important to note that the CBD molecules cling to fats in order to be processed by the body. As such, adding a “fat” such as cream or milk can help maximize the benefits of drinking CBD tea by helping your body process the cannabidiol compounds more efficiently.

Without further ado, let’s make you a perfect cup of CBD tea!


  • one tablespoon of honey,
  • one cinnamon stick,
  • one strip of lemon peel,
  • one CBD tea bag,
  • one cup of hot water (or enough to fill your favorite cup),
  • one splash of cream (to taste).


  1. Once you have all the ingredients ready, take a mug and put in the honey, cinnamon stick, and lemon twist.
  2. Add the tea bag, pour hot water into the mug, and wait 3 to 5 minutes. You may want to double-check the recommended steeping time for your particular type of tea.
  3. When the tea is made, remove the tea bag and add a dash of cream to it.
  4. Give the tea a good stir, and voila — it’s ready to be served!

Of course, feel free to use substitutes and alternatives to tailor this recipe to your particular needs and preferences.

For instance, you can definitely switch pre-made CBD tea bags with any tea you have at hand. The recipe features honey and cream to make a scrumptious cup of freshly brewed tea and pairs particularly well with green teas, including matcha powder, black teas, and various herbal teas like chamomile and mint.

You can also experiment with other tea blends to find your perfect match — but don’t forget to add a few drops of CBD oil then.

If you’re not a fan of honey, don’t worry! This CBD tea recipe is versatile, and you can easily substitute it with another sweetener of your choice, such as agave nectar, maple syrup, or just regular sugar.

For those who don’t like dairy or are lactose intolerant, there are plenty of plant-based alternatives, such as almond, hemp, rice, or soy milk, or even a tablespoon of vegan butter or coconut oil. However, keep in mind that a higher fat content will enhance the CBD benefits, so avoid low-fat, skim, or light products.

And you can always use another citrus peel like orange or lime instead — after all, it’s all about finding the right combination that suits your taste buds.

Here are a few additional tips for the brewing process:

  • In order to unlock the full potential of CBD, it’s essential to use heat to activate its molecules. Cold infusions won’t cut it. However, once you’ve brewed your cup of CBD tea, feel free to chill it to your liking.
  • While a twist of lemon peel adds a delightful flavor boost and a refreshing note to the tea’s taste profile, when cutting the peel, try to avoid the white pith as much as possible to prevent any bitterness.
  • If you’re using a dairy product, be careful not to replace the lemon peel with lemon juice. The acidic juice can cause the milk or cream to curdle, resulting in a less-than-pleasant texture in your cup of tea.

So, go ahead and brew yourself a perfect cup of CBD tea, sit back, and enjoy the relaxation and other wellness benefits it offers!
