Can any manly dad-man resist the idea of “Man Tea”? (Yes, that is Man Tea, not Manatee.) The creator, Your Tea, recommends drinking it right before workouts, stating, “you can work out longer, feel more energetic, and build the muscle you want most.” The blend combines both black and green tea, with no sugar, chemicals, or preservatives.

Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Brooklyn Tea. The shop is a favorite of Strategist senior editor Peter Martin, who says the couple that runs it does a great job of making tea accessible to everyone, including “clueless skeptics” such as himself. The gift box comes with an infuser and four kinds of tea that are curated based on types (green, black, oolong, white) or themes (“new to tea,” “relaxing”). Due to high demand, the shop says to expect a five-to-seven-day delay for orders to ship. But it also sells e-gift cards that can be delivered right away.
