7 Types Of Tea You Must Start Drinking For A Healthier Life

The best thing about tea is there are many kinds and they have different advantages, flavors and options.

Drinking coffee is the best. I love a cup of coffee, being in a coffee shop and buying different kinds of coffee makers. However, recently I have been more into hot tea. Tea is healthier than coffee. It has fewer calories than coffee. Tea is better for my body, and I can take it without sugar.

Also, tea comforts me. For example, I am anxious writing an essay, studying for an exam or applying for a job in the middle of the night, and a cup of tea calms me and helps me to finish any labor I have.

The best thing about tea is that there are many kinds and they have different advantages, flavors, and options. I love going to tea stores or supermarket with many types because it is like Disneyland for me. I love to try new brands, flavors, and styles.

I want to share with you what I have learned about these types of tea.

1. Chamomile tea.

Chamomile tea is a basic in my life. I need to know I have a couple of bags of Chamomile tea close to me all the time. I use it when I feel sick (stomachaches mostly) and when I am anxious when I should make a decision. If someday I have to live a week in a jungle with only two belongings, I would choose a package of chamomile and a teapot.

It does not have caffeine, but chamomile tea has healed almost any wound.

2. Black tea.

If you need to stay awake for a long time, your best option is Black tea. In my case, it works better than a cup of coffee. The best thing is there are thousands of options for your black tea. There are several flavors, brands and varying amounts of caffeine. It is the kind of tea you can find in any supermarket.

My best suggestion is to buy a different kind any time you go shopping for groceries. It is always good to have a package of black tea at home.

3. Green tea.

Green tea is amazing. It has several advantages such as antioxidants and nutrients. Green tea improves brain functions, fat loss, lower risk of cancer and many other impressive benefits. Also, it has caffeine; then, you can drink it instead of coffee.

I have learned something about Green tea: the Chinese style is not the same as what we buy in the supermarket. If you purchase Green tea anywhere, it should have an excellent flavor or some extra aromatic flavors, but if you taste real Chinese Green tea, I promise you it will be different. For me, it felt horrible, but it has more advantages than American green tea. In any case, you should try both.

4. Rosa de Jamaica Hibiscus Tea.

Rosa Jamaica is a kind of red tea. The truth is I do not like it, but it has a significant advantage: it helps to lose weight. It is a diuretic, and it helps to accelerate your metabolism. So, one cup per day is not going to hurt even when it is not my favorite kind of tea.

5. Linden tea.

Linden tea is almost as good as chamomile tea. I say "almost" because I preferer the flavor of the chamomile, but if you feel sick, sad or anxious, linden tea is there for you.

6. Peach Mango Herbal Tea.

When I do not want to drink any beverage with caffeine, I have a mango peach herbal tea which is fantastic. It tastes incredible and it helps me when I need a comfort drink at night. If you do not like mango or peach, you can try other types of herbal teas; all of them are so good.

7. Bedtime tea.

Speaking of nighttime, there is tea when you need to go to bed. There are many brands which offer this kind of tea. It is a mix of herbs such as chamomile, mint, linden, valerian root, lemon balm, passionflower, and magnolia bark. I love it because it helps me to be relaxed before I go to bed.

I am not saying you should stop drinking coffee. A cup of coffee has many advantages. What I am telling you is to try to include tea in your life.

To finish, I want to share this video with you. It is in Spanish, but watch it anyway; you will see a cool way to make tea.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
