Science has consistently shown that drinking tea has many different types of health benefits. Tea’s primary health-promoting substances are polyphenols, which is known to contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This has shown to lower the risk of diabetes and possibly cardiovascular disease over a long period of time.
White Tea: The least processed tea variety, white tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant native to China and India and is known for its delicate flavour. Containing the lowest levels of caffeine of any tea, this tea has high fluoride levels, catechins, and tannins that can strengthen teeth and fight plaque. This variety is also the most effective tea in fighting cancer due to its high level of antioxidants.
Herbal tea: Herbal tea is similar to white tea and contains a blend of herbs, spices, fruits in addition to tea leaves. It doesn’t contain caffeine and is therefore known for its calming properties. The most popular herbal teas include chamomile, peppermint, rooibos, hibiscus, and ginger tea, each with unique benefits.
Green Tea: Originating from China and Japan, green tea leaves can be processed either through pan-firing, roasting, or steaming. This variety has plentiful of flavonoids which have been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and reduce blood clotting. It can also boost overall heart health and is known to be anti-inflammatory to keep skin healthy and glowing.
Black Tea: comes from the same leaves used to make green tea, but the leaves are dried and fermented to give a darker and richer flavour. Although this tea is caffeinated unlike other varieties, it still contains flavonoids to support healthy immune function and help inflammation.
