In India, every second person loves to drink tea (chai). Do you know tea has many hidden benefits that we are unaware of or don’t know? For centuries across the globe, people have drank tea and for good reasons. Research has shown tea has several qualities to boost our immune system and sustain healthy living.
In the blog, we will discuss some health benefits of drinking tea. Here are the benefits of some popular types of tea listed below:
White Milk tea or Regular tea for natives of China and India has many health benefits. The tea comes from a specific plant known as Camellia Sinensis, the least processed tea. Due to high anti-oxidants, research has shown their impact on various forms of cancer. Further, it helps strengthen teeth, removes plaque, and supplies required fluoride to the diet.
Herbal tea is similar to white tea but contains herbs and spices like ginger, clove, cardamon etc. These teas have calming properties due to the lack of caffeine in them. Some unique benefits of different types of herbal teas are:
- Chamomile Tea- Relieves menstrual pain, improves sleep, reduces stress
- Peppermint tea- improves upset stomach, cures constipation, motion sickness and irritable bowel syndrome.
- Ginger tea- fights against morning sickness, treats chronic indigestion, relieves joint pain
- Hibiscus tea- improves liver health, lowers blood pressure, prevents kidney stones and reduces fat levels.
Green tea belongs to the Chinese traditions, where tea leaves get roasted before making tea. Similarly, in Japan, they steam tea leaves to prepare green tea. It has various health benefits and helps lower cholesterol, reduces blood clotting, and manages hypertension. Further, green tea has shown a beneficial impact on breast, liver, prostate and colorectal cancers.
Prepared from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, black tea has many beneficiary properties. However, the preparation process for black is quite different and involves dried tea leaves that give black colour when fermented in hot boiled water. It can help scrap wounds by steaming, cooling and pressing the leaves. Further, it reduces pain and swelling. Also, taking a bath in black tea can help relieve inflammation and skin rashes.
