Tea has been around for centuries but seems to be on the rise these past few years. From green to black to herbal tea, there is a type of tea for everyone! All teas provide health benefits, but each has their own way of nourishing the body. I personally love to switch up my teas daily, depending on my body’s needs. Let’s take a look at the different kinds of tea:
Green – its high antioxidant content reduces free radicals, and the caffeine helps improve brain function, alertness, and memory. Other benefits of green tea include increased metabolism, improved dental health, and protection against sun damage.
Black – contains vitamins A, B1, B6 and C. Rich in polyphenols, black tea plays a role in age prevention and reduced cholesterol levels. It’s antiviral and antibacterial properties help with cuts, burns, and sunburn relief. Black tea may also boost energy levels, relieve headaches and prevent tooth decay.
Roobios-an adaptogen with minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, zinc and vitamin C, rooibos benefits the skin, bones, and teeth. It can also alleviate stress, allergy symptoms, and digestive discomfort.
White- is the least oxidized of all teas. It’s excellent for the immune system, fighting off bacteria, and lowering bad cholesterol.
Herbal – It is not caffeinated, however, there are a numerous herbal teas to choose from, depending on the benefits you are looking for. Herbal teas are great for digestion, immunity, sleep, detoxing, and calming the nerves, just to name a few.
This fall, you can catch me curled up with Buddha Tea’s Root Chakra tea. It’s warm and full of yummy spices that are perfect for grounding! The tea’s beautiful red color reminds me of autumn’s leaves.
