Tea has been considered a medical remedy in China and Japan for centuries.
- Today, most people have figured out that drinking tea is good for your health, and there are thousands of different flavors to choose from.
The various teas are created from spices, herbs and tea plant leaves. There are teas that boost the digestive system, prevent heart disease, help with insomnia and relaxation and promote weight loss. Deciding which type of tea is the best is pretty much impossible. There’s just too many options and they all offer a variety of benefits. There isn’t really enough scientific research or evidence to prove or disprove the many claims. However, if you read reviews, more people are getting on board and raving about the many rewards. From getting an energy boost in the morning to falling asleep at night, there’s a tea to suit the requirement. Determining the right tea for your taste and goals can be a little overwhelming. First of all, you want to stick with loose leaf teas rather than the greater convenience of tea bags. Loose leaf provides greater health rewards and is typically more pure and potent. Tea is made from the Camellia sinensis plant with some oxidized and rolled while others are sun-dried. Most everybody has heard of green tea, white tea, oolong tea and the popular varieties of black tea, including Darjeeling, Assam, Earl Gray and English breakfast tea. However there is an extensive list of herbal teas that can be very flavorful and target specific concerns. You want to find one that meets your needs but also tastes good enough that you’ll want to drink it.
