We at TheTeaShelf have been long saying “Winter Is Coming”, along with John Snow of course. And now that the air gets nippier, the days fold earlier, and the nights longer, warming yourselves with a hot cup of healthy tea is a great start to this winter!
Try some of these healthy tea favorites this season, and give that boring cup of coffee a miss.
Also known as “Babune ka Phal” in Hindi, Chamomile tea is inherently soothing – calming the anxious and lulling the insomniac. Chamomile, diverted from chamomile flower, is golden in color and has a delectable, fruity flavor. This little white flower does wonders for the immune system, especially against the dreaded “common cold”. It is magic on an irritated digestive system, relaxing the organs and facilitating a jump-start, which is essential, every once in a while. Chamomile tea can help those suffering from hyperglycemia and diabetes.
Green Tea is nonsense, one-stop remedy to most common concerns. A power-packed metabolism and energy booster, with antioxidants galore.
Highlight: Chamomile Green is the ultimate elixir for menstrual cramps! Highly recommended concoction to partake before you call it a night.
Few things warm up a winter afternoon as pleasantly as a cup of spearmint tea. Known for its delicious taste and pleasant aroma, it is also excellent for your body and your mind. Like all other green teas, spearmint tea is loaded with antioxidants. Furthermore, spearmint tea helps to relive stress, calm those anxious nerves, and relieves those dreaded cold and flu symptoms. Spearmint tea also provides relief for menstrual cramps, headache, and an upset stomach.
A well-known relaxant, lavender works on several levels, one hot cup with sprinkle of lavender will sweep you away to a relaxing day at spa! This floral blend of Lavender Black Tea will notably leave your senses all soothed and de-stressed. The leaves unfurl with heady fragrances of lavender, soothing the body as well as the mind. This flower works on the bad bacteria in the digestive tract, easing bloating and flatulence. A natural sedative, it calms anxiety and stress, which in turn keeps the cardiovascular system functioning smoothly. Needless to say, you’ll sleep better. Its ability to act as an expectorant helps counter the effects of “weather change”. Add to it the antioxidants contained in black tea and you have a brew that restores and heals.
