Now that it's Autumn, there's nothing that I love more than relaxing, unwinding and drinking a cup of tea. I love tea - although I have switched to herbal tea because it's so much healthier. Having said that, I do love a mug of Indian tea (with milk and sugar) every morning :)
In this post, I'm going to explain more about the different types of teas I drink, and the benefits of drinking them!
Green tea is extremely popular, and many people either love it or they hate it! Green tea has many benefits! I love it! It has a great source of anti-oxidants (can help to prevent cancer), it can reduce cholesterol in blood, keeps your teeth healthy and kills bacteria in your mouth, great for digestion, can raise your metabolism and also helps increase your endurance (I tend to drink a cup of green tea before I exercise!) I don't over do it though! Green tea has a tiny bit of testosterone, which actually caused my skin to break out, so I limit to having green tea a few times a week (although one or two cups of green tea a day aren't so bad either).
Dr. Stuarts Detox tea:
I drink this detox tea about three times a week. It contains: dandelion and burdock, sage, peppermint and spearmint. This tea doesn't taste the best but it makes me feel so refreshed. I like that the fact that it is packed full of nutrients that are great for your body. It is caffeine free which means that I can have it any time of the day :)You can purchase it from Holland and Barrett for £1.99 (15 bags)
Dr. Stuart's Skin Purify tea
I also love the Skin Purify tea from Dr. Stuart which contains: red clover, nettles and lemon balm, which can soothe your skin and help with any inflammatory problems. I didn't notice a major difference in my skin, although I did feel very 'cleansed' when I woke up in the morning. This tastes much better than the detox range from Dr. Stuart. It also costs £1.99, and can be purchased from Holland and Barrett.
Red bush tea:
I also love to drink Red bush tea every day. It doesn't have any caffeine in it, so I tend to drink it in the evenings. The benefits of red bush tea include: aids your digestive system, has a great source of anti-oxidants (greater than green tea), aids restful sleep, can improve appetite and maintains healthy bones, teeth and gums
