Many of our customers who are drawn to tea for its unique health benefits ask us what is the healthiest type of tea they should drink. Since different herbal and “true” teas contain different medicinal benefits, it’s hard to say just what type of tea is best for an individual. Many teas are high in antioxidants, and often contain many other beneficial properties, like boosting your immune system, aiding with digestion, reducing inflammation, and increasing your energy. Herbs like ginger, turmeric, mullein, and rosehip are also full of much needed healthy properties. No matter what kind of tea you drink, tea is always going to be a tasty and healthy alternative to coffee, soda, alcoholic beverages, artificial juices, and other drinks.
Many studies have shown that, when compared with other types of tea produced from the camellia sinensis plant (traditionally used for caffeinated teas), green tea may contain even more antioxidants than other types of tea. While green tea is certainly high in antioxidants, we find that the best and “healthiest” tea for you is the one that you will make often and injoy drinking too. Whether that means green tea, a big mug of matcha, black tea with a little almond milk and honey, hibiscus tea, mint tea, or any other kind of herbal tea, you’ll be sure to reap the rewards of incorporating those medicinal properties into your lifestyle.
A Cup A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
A cup of tea can be a great way to boost your body’s defenses and immune system in order to keep from getting sick or ill. Many types of tea have antiviral, antimicrobial, and immune-boosting properties that can help to keep you in tip-top shape. For thousands of years, tea has been used as a component in herbal medicine in order to ward off illness and soothe the symptoms of colds and sore throats, and many other ailments you may experience.
With that being said, tea isn’t a replacement for proper medical treatment if you think you might be getting sick. However, a daily serving of herbal tea can definitely provide a preventive measure for illness and/or dis-ease. While tea can help to ward off illnesses and soothe symptoms when you’re feeling under the weather, you should always check with your doctor if you’re seriously sick.
