When it comes to tea, where do you even start? There are so many different flavors, brewing techniques, and benefits that it can be overwhelming. Well, we’ve already covered teas that can help relieve sore throat before which includes the health benefits of tea as well as some types of tea (like infused, herbal, spiced, and classic). However, our focus for today is to expand upon the benefits that specific flavors of tea can give you.
First of all, let’s just mention a couple of general benefits:
- Tea is a great way to keep hydrated
- Tea helps to keep other vices in check (such as smoking)
- Tea can help you think better (because polyphenols help the blood flow to the brain, improving your cognitive function)
- Tea keeps your bones strong (at least when you drink it with milk)
“Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.” - Chaim Potok
Black Tea for Early Birds
Black tea is a great option to replace coffee in the morning! Its caffeine level is lower than coffee, but still enough to do the job for you and provide a long-lasting energy for the day.
More than that:
Drinking black tea can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and even stabilize blood pressure!
Peppermint Tea for Better Digestion
Peppermint tea has been proven effective against:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Pain in lower gut
However, it’s not the best choice if you’re feeling pain in the upper part of the digestive tract. If that’s the case, you might want to keep peppermint away.
Lemon Tea to Relieve Sore Throat
Lemon is one of the best natural remedies for sore throat available. The citric acid of the fruit helps reduce pain and inflammation. Be careful, though, if you have a sensitive stomach since the citric acid can make you feel a bit sick.
You can try mixing lemon juice in hot water and adding a tablespoon of honey (which is also a great anti-inflammatory).
Green Tea for Health Boost
There are actually many benefits of green tea, and a health boost is just one of them. However, it’s definitely an important one which is why we’re focusing on it! Green tea can help reduce inflammation, prevent some types of cancer, and prevent cell damage. In addition:
It can help you lose weight as well since it increases fat burning (and improves your physical performance). It’s a great option to drink before going to the gym.
Ginger Tea for Ladies’ Days
Ginger can help with:
- Upset stomach
All symptoms that can come along with your period. So, the idea of having ginger tea (and relieving this combo that comes with being a woman) is a pretty great one!
Chamomile Tea to Soothe the Nerves
If you have trouble sleeping from time to time, people have probably already recommended that you drink chamomile tea. And they’re right! Chamomile has a calming, relaxing effect - which can help with both anxiety issues and insomnia.
Gabalong Tea to Lighten Your Mood
Also very good for people who suffer with anxiety, gabalong tea is the go-to option when you’re feeling stressed or sad. It has the GABA chemical that helps your brain keep calm and manage stress by controlling blood pressure, which eventually will make your mood improve!
White Tea for Skin Youth
White tea can also help improve your mood, but its main characteristic is the extract that keeps your skin looking younger for a longer time. Nowadays, people get stressed really easy and even if they find the time to take a break and relax, their bodies will suffer consequences - such as more white hairs appearing and damage to the skin.
Drinking a cup of white tea every now and then will give your body the antioxidants needed to prevent that damage from happening, and even to reduce the chances of getting skin cancer and wrinkles!
Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea for Vitamin C Increase
Both rosehip and hibiscus are high in vitamin C individually, but even more than that…
From rosehip you can expect to treat:
- Arthritis pain
- Colds and cases of flu
While hibiscus can help you with:
- Upset stomach
So when you combine them in a single cup, you can only have a handful of benefits!
Earl Grey for the Teeth
also helping with anxiety, weight loss, and keeping you hydrated, earl grey has the advantage of being good for your teeth as well. It has components that fight oral infections and decay, protecting from cavities too. All of that in just one cup of tea!
