Improve your qualiTEA of life.

We all know that tea has long been proven to be extremely beneficial to your health, but do you know which leaves are best for what benefits? Get to know how your cup of tea can help boost your health with our four favorite selections:

1. Hibiscus tea for long term benefits

This cheerfully red flower tea has been gaining popularity over the years. It’s loaded with antioxidants, and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Also, it’s a great alternative when you’re craving something sweet but need a healthy option. Its tart taste is similar to cranberry juice and can be made sweeter with some honey. Have it with ice for a refreshing experience!

2. Ginger tea for ache-free days

There’s a reason why spas always serve ginger tea (also known as salabat) before and after treatments. This natural, soothing drink combats all kinds of aches, including the sensation of nausea, menstrual pains, and tummy aches. And you can save money by preparing it yourself! Boil some ginger and voila, you have your tea remedy. As always, you can sweeten with a little but of honey for a smoother drink.

3. Chamomile tea for the best sleep

Chamomile is the classic solution when you can’t fall asleep at night. Its properties induce calm, reduce stress, and reduce internal and external inflammation – helping put the body in a more relaxed state overall. After dinner, curl up with a good book and sip some chamomile on the side. It’s a great way to unwind after a long and busy work day.

4. Green tea for just about anything, really

Green tea has been dubbed the healthiest tea, as it has almost too many benefits to mention. Drink it before meals to boost metabolism, while working to empower brain functions, and as a healthier alternative to coffee – both drinks give you the same amount of energy!

It also comes in many forms: matcha, sencha, genmaicha are just some of them. Experiment to find the one for you. Hot or iced, green tea is king.

A healthy body leads to a healthy mind; when you feel good on the inside, you’re getting that beautiful life you deserve. Explore the world of tea and create yours now!
