It’s Tea Time

Tea is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world and it’s no surprise people have been drinking tea for centuries for the pleasure, routine, taste, and the many health benefits. Tea also has a high concentration of antioxidants, which may contribute to the prevention of cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular diseases. 

 

Here are some of the characteristics and healing properties of the major tea families:

 

Black Tea
This tea is more oxidized than other teas, which gives it a darker color, and a stronger flavor profile.

 

Health benefits of Black Tea:
Aids the digestive system
Anti-inflammatory effects on the body
Protects the skin
Burns calories

 

Green Tea
This tea has not been processed as much as other forms, and so it has a gentler color and flavor profile.

 

Health benefits of Green Tea:

Oolong Tea
This tea is made by a process of withering the leaves and drying them in the sun. This creates a light colored tea with a mild flavor profile.

White Tea
This tea is not oxidized or rolled, and this creates a mild flavor profile.

With all the benefits of drinking tea, choosing a tea for your specific needs is a great way to discover what is out there, because with over 1500 varieties, finding one that fits your ideal flavor profile can be a little overwhelming.
