Some alcoholic fun out in the evening with friends could sometimes turn into a binge that could lead to the most dreaded hangover the next morning.

English company Tetley is looking to end this headache as it aims to release a new brand of “supertea” that can cure hangover, reduce tiredness and improve overall concentration.


With help from the Future Foundation, the UK-based company is looking at different kinds of tea leaves in trying to develop this particular brew, The Telegraph reported.

The ‘“remedy teas” are envisioned to be laden with antioxidants and to relieve pain, as well as aid hydration, eliminating hangovers.


“Britain’s love affair with tea is enduring. The way we consume tea has gradually evolved since the 17th century, but now we are entering a period of rapid change,” Tetley’s representative, Laurent Sagarra, was quoted as saying.

“We’re constantly innovating, grading, blending and tasting, and now’s the time to see what’s next for the iconic British cuppa,” she added.

Nick Chiarelli, director of the Future Foundation, meanwhile, expressed his enthusiasm for the potential of the envisioned beverage.

“We’ve blended the consumer trends we are predicting for 2026, with input from Tetley experts and elsewhere to develop a very compelling vision of tea in the future,” he said. “Our report predicts that exciting and satisfying new tea formats will develop, and that tea will evolve to deliver personalized health benefits.”

The superteas are expected to be rolled out within the next decade.  Khristian Ibarrola
