Best Teas To Keep You Warm And Healthy

10 New Teas To Keep You Warm And Healthy This Fall

The best teas to sip to keep you warm this fall, to sip while you gossip with your friends, and to switch up your daily coffee routine!


Tea is the best alternative to water or coffee! It combines the caffeine of your daily Starbucks and the eight glasses of water you were supposed to drink today. Every type of tea leaf has its own benefits for your health. This includes antioxidants, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, weight loss, protection of bones, strong immune system, etc. Enjoy the list of my favorite ones recently!

1. Harney & Sons Fine Teas: Matcha iri Genmaicha

Harney & Sons Fine Teas is a cult favorite brand for most tea lovers, and one of my favorite teas from the company is the Matcha iri Genmaicha. This is a must try for Matcha and Green Tea lovers. It gives a smooth, nonbitter taste with a bit of citrus. Harney & Sons Fine Teas is definitely worth the rave!

2. Surasang Korean Tea: Green Tea with Roasted Brown Rice

An alternative to the Matcha iri Genmaicha is the Susarang's Green Tea with Roasted Brown Rice. It will obviously be less flavorful than the Harney & Sons brews, but this is another raved about tea that you can find at Asian supermarkets.

3. Tradition Barley Tea

Another tea that newbies should know is Barley tea. My favorite brand is the Chinese brand "Tradition." It is simple and steeps well! Barley is a natural antacid that helps relieve the painful symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux diseases. There are also very good Trader Joe's and Japanese Barley Tea brands.

4. Tazo's Passion Tea

When I worked for a restaurant in New York City, one of our famous drinks was the Passion Fruit Lemonade. Tazo's Passion Tea is another favorite of mine and I am sure everyone has heard of Tazo. The brand is also used at your local Starbucks. This is for the ones who like the fruity side of teas.

5. Prince of Peace 100% Organic Oolong Tea

The Prince of Peace: Oolong is one of my favorite Oolong Tea brands. The con of this brand is that it is not too flavorful, but it does the job better than other tea brands I have tasted! I try to steep it a bit longer to bring more of the flavor into the water. Oolong Tea is usually what you will be served at dim sum restaurants and includes caffeine to wake you up!

6. Twinings Earl Grey Black Tea

Twinings is a brand that I believe comes as a favorite after Harney & Sons. The strength of the leaves gives a poignant aroma so the teas are not bland. Earl Grey is a classic black tea that can go with your snacks and milk!

7. Yogi's Ginger Tea

The tea brand Yogi is another favorite! Ginger tea helps get rid of your sore throats, fevers, digestion, and nausea. Whenever I had a fever my mother would cut ginger slices into a cup, crush them, fill it with honey and hot water to create my cure tea. Yogi is also a very famous and recommended tea brand!

8. Vita Chrysanthemum Tea Drink

Now I know this is cheating, but I am going to let you know that the best teas do not always have to be sophisticated and fancy. Vita's Chrysanthemum Tea Box Drink is one of the most known drinks for any East Asian American. We lived on this drink when we were younger. This was the drink our parents would approve for us to buy at the supermarket versus the sugar loaded juices. Be aware, you'll go through the pack quicker than you know it.

9. Wong Lo Kat Herbal Tea

Another tea that skews from the original leaves routine is Wong Lo Kat's Herbal Tea. This is definitely another addicting tea that helps cleanse your palette after eating too many spicy or fried snacks. It calms your sugar and sodium levels, as most Chinese herbal teas do.

10. Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move

Traditional Medicinals Tea is my number one favorite natural herbal supplement. This Smooth Move has always immediately aided in my digestion. By removing toxins from the body with this tea, I have had clearer skin as a result. Beware that this is a laxative. I'm not in love with the taste, but definitely my favorite one for the results!

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Air Travel Looks Different Now

If you have to travel, you can — you just have to take a few extra steps.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As we are learning how to live our lives in the midst of a pandemic, one big question being travel. States that were initially labeled coronavirus (COVID-19) epicenters, like New York and New Jersey, are extra cautious in how freely residents can travel and then come home. Other states may not have the same travel restrictions as the epicenters, but one thing is for sure — no matter where you fly within the United States, that trip will look different than your usual summer vacation. Sure, it can still happen, you just need to take a few more steps to make sure your trip will go smoothly.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?
