It’s nearly winter, which means that it’s prime tea-drinking time. There’s nothing more comforting than enjoying a steaming cup of tea in a sweater when it’s chilly outside. But there are so many kinds of tea, how will you ever choose one to drink that fits your mood and needs on any particular day? This guide will help.
Want to Relax?
If you’re feeling tense, stressed, or having a hard time falling asleep, go with chamomile, which can help relax your central nervous system.
Have a Tummy Ache?
If you’re suffering from motion sickness, poor digestion, or an upset stomach, ginger tea is just the thing to soothe you.
Need a Boost?
If you want the awakening effects of caffeine but aren’t a fan of coffee, drink some black tea, which has nearly as much caffeine as a cup of espresso.
All teas have some proven health benefits, but green tea is especially good for you, supporting heart and brain health and protecting against oxidative stress.
Want Stronger Teeth?
If you’re the type to get lots of cavities, drinking white tea is a great idea. Containing fluoride, catechins, and tannins, white tea can strengthen teeth and manage plaque.
