What tea should you be drinking?

Posted by: Patrick Catanzariti on April 20, 2016

As if you needed any more reasons to have a cuppa, it turns out that the tea you drink can have a positive impact on your health! Whether you love green tea, or swear by your favourite herbal blend, find out what your brew can do for you. We take a look at 6 different types of tea and the health benefits they can bring.

1. Chamomile
Struggling to get a good night’s sleep? Chamomile tea is soothing and calming, which works wonders for those suffering from sleepless nights. A cup of chamomile tea before bed will help send you smoothly off to dreamland.

2. Peppermint
Peppermint tea is excellent for your digestion, so if you’re feeling a little bloated it can help ease the pain. It’s often drunk after a meal for this very reason.

3. Ginger
Ginger is well known for settling nausea. When it’s in a tea, it can help soothe your stomach, as well as for helping out if you have a cold or sore throat.

4. Green tea
What can’t green tea do? It’s so full of antioxidants, it’s been called a superfood – and that might just be right! The high levels of antioxidants in green tea can reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease, as well as help keep cholesterol levels low.

5. Black tea
With the greatest amount of caffeine of any tea, black tea is good for mental alertness and energy. It’s also got lots of excellent antioxidants (although not as many as green tea) and so is thought to reduce the risks of some cancers – although more research is required on this one.

6. Lemon balm
While a good cup of tea of any type can help calm you down, lemon balm tea is especially good at this. Its gentle fragrance can help if you’re feeling anxious or stressed.
