Tea has been know to have so many health benefits. The following benefits were taken from WebMD:
- Green tea: Made with steamed tea leaves, it has a high concentration of EGCG and has been widely studied. Green tea’s antioxidants may interfere with the growth of bladder, breast, lung, stomach, pancreatic, and colorectal cancers; prevent clogging of the arteries, burn fat, counteract oxidative stress on the brain, reduce risk of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, reduce risk of stroke, and improve cholesterol levels.
- Black tea: Made with fermented tea leaves, black tea has the highest caffeine content and forms the basis for flavored teas like chai, along with some instant teas. Studies have shown that black tea may protect lungs from damage caused by exposure to cigarette smoke. It also may reduce the risk of stroke.
To be honest, I am not a big hot tea drinker, I do however love drinking sweet tea in the summer, which has no health benefits. My mom swears by tea in helping her feel better. I decided that I would try tea for a few weeks instead of my daily glass of pop. While it has only been about a week so far and it has been hard but I am slowly starting to enjoy drinking tea. For some flavors, I added sugar so I could drink it. What do you put in your tea? What flavors do you like the most?
Enjoy over a dozen hot teas from Bigelow, Celestial Seasonings, Twinings, Tazo and others that come in many varieties such as, English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Green Tea with Pomegranate and Mandarin Orange.
