Handy Guide to Healthy Tea

Are you the type of person who looks forward to your routine of enjoying a nice cup of tea at 4 pm every day? 

Or do you always forget that that there are other beverages out there besides coffee, water or (gasp!) Diet Coke?

If you are doing mindful, active things to benefit your health (like eating right, exercising, socializing, meditating, playing with your dog…whatever), then why aren’t you drinking tea? Maybe you’re not aware that drinking tea should be part of your daily health routine! If it already is, you may be wondering why it's so good for you and which teas impart certain health benefits.

Various types of tea, concoctions and infusions were used and enjoyed for many, many centuries before medicine was developed. Tea's incredible health benefits abound! So much so, that I needed to build a little reference guide for myself so that I could quickly determine which teas are beneficial for what ailment. 

And not only can they cure what ails you but many teas contain 10 times the amount of antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, with almost zero calories! But please don’t even think of drinking tea as a substitute for your daily dose of antioxidants—load up on whole, plant-based foods along with daily cups of tea for maximum health benefits!
