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?
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
