We all know that tea is an excellent source of antioxidants, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed in the tea aisle of the grocery store. While all teas have some really great health benefits, there are slight differences depending on the type. With a little guidance, anyone can be well prepared to choose the type of tea that is best for them and start enjoying its benefits!
Green Tea is full of antioxidants that can lower the risk of many kinds of cancer including bladder, breast, lung and stomach cancers. It lowers the risk of stroke, improves cholesterol levels, and has numerous other random health benefits. It’s low in caffeine , but still refreshing. I personally think that green tea is perfect for starting or ending the day; it’s energizing and refreshing in the morning, but also helps me unwind and relax at night.
Chamomile Tea is best known for its calming nature and is great to drink right before bed as a sleep aid. This type of tea is also an immune booster that can keep you healthy and cold-free all season long. As for the taste, it’s pretty mild and some say that is has a slight flowery taste.
Black Tea is the go-to choice for those times when you need to stay awake, as it has the highest amount of caffeine. It has the most potent flavor, and is most often the base for chais and iced teas. Black tea helps to maintain a healthy cholesterol level, and improves cardiovascular and circulatory health.
White Tea is known for it’s antioxidants that maintain radiant and healthy skin. It also helps to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and has the most delicate taste. This calming tea has one of the lowest amounts of caffeine and is great for unwinding at the end of a long day.
