Hi y’all! I am an avid tea drinker, so I wanted to give some suggestions on some of the best teas to help with your health. I myself only drink herbal teas, but there are other teas that have their own benefits. This list is just the best teas in my opinion and experience. I will start off by saying that I didn’t realize how many people weren’t aware that different kinds of tea should be brewed differently. For herbal teas it is best to use boiling water, and you should let the tea steep for at least 5 minutes. I personally like my tea to be more flavorful so I let my tea steep for 15-20 minutes. Some tea can get bitter if you let it steep for too long, but the herbal teas I’ve tried haven’t had an issue with it unless I leave them for over 30ish minutes. I know that I am one of only a few that like my teas plain with no sweeteners. If you want a little more flavor, sweetness, in your tea then the easiest way is too stir in some honey while the water is still hot. Now, let’s jump into our list shall we?
Chamomile is my favorite kind of tea. It is a very relaxing and tasty blend. The most common use for chamomile tea is to help improve your sleep. It is actually one of the most effective teas in helping your body to relax. I take it a step farther and get chamomile with lavender. Lavender is a relaxing herb that helps with your sleep as well, so the two go together pretty well. I feel that chamomile tea not only helps to relax your body, but your mind as well. Whenever I have too much going on in my head, or my emotions attempt to take control, I’ll make myself of cup of chamomile.
I have a nephew that sometimes he gets anxious and worked up, and his mom will make him a cup of Kava tea. Kava tea is mainly used to relieve stress and anxiety. Kava tea has something in it called kavapyrones. These act similar to alcohol in the sense that it can help you feel calm, relaxed, and happy. Only this way there’s no hangover. *wink*
3) Healthy Cycle
Sorry guys, this one is for my fellow ladies. This blend mainly consists of raspberry leaf and licorice root. You can buy the blend at most grocery stores. If you couldn’t guess this tea helps you during that oh so wonderful time of the month. Anytime I’m coming up on my cycle and I just feel icky, you all know what I’m talking about, I make myself a cup of this tea. Not only does it smell amazing, but I think it tastes great. This is also my favorite way to deal with cramps.
4) Peach Tranquility
This is another tea that’s a blend. It has peach (obviously), pineapple, lemon verbena, and chamomile. Is it cheating for this to contain another tea on my list? This is one of my favorite smelling teas, and it is probably right up there with regular chamomile for my favorite tasting tea. This tea is one that is very helpful for your body. It can help to boost your immune system, strengthen your bones, lower blood sugar, and even help in weight loss. It’s a very useful tea, and it’s so flavorful.
5) Homemade Blend
This tea is at the bottom of the list because it isn’t as easy to get your hands on and technically this is not just one kind of tea. Every other tea on my list can be found in your typical grocery store. My sister is all things natural. She made me this tea when I mentioned that I was having digestion issues. It is a blend of peppermint, fennel, basil, licorice root, marshmallow root, and calendula. The peppermint adds a lovely minty taste to it. Anytime I have a stomachache, abdominal pain, or really any kind of gut discomfort I turn to this tea. Every time that I have made a cup of this, I feel better within the hour without fail.
I think that tea is a great natural remedy for all different kinds of things, but there are supplements that can help as well, like Exipure. This is just a list of my favorite teas. There are definitely a ton more options out there though. Are any of you guys tea drinkers? What are some of your favorite teas?
