3 Things You Didn’t Know Tea Could Do

Tea has many health benefits that often go unnoticed or uncelebrated. From curing ailments to helping with digestion, there are many ways that tea can help you improve your health. Here are three things you didn’t know tea could do, including both physical and mental health benefits.

Prevent or Ease Disease

Tea leaves have been recognized throughout history for their ability to prevent diseases. For thousands of years, herbal teas have provided protection from illness and have helped treat symptoms. Herbs and plants with medicinal properties can be brewed to make restorative brews. For example, blends like Culinary Tea's Digestive Health Herbal Tea use ingredients such as ginger and mint. These ingredients calm digestive system issues including inflammation, blockage, and other painful symptoms. 

Teas can also be perfect for relieving cold and flu symptoms. Ingredients like lemon and ginger help with sore throats. Peppermint and eucalyptus can ease congestion. And echinacea can boost your immune system, speeding recovery.  

Health Benefits

Tea can also help improve your overall health and quality of life. There are multiple health benefits to drinking tea. Our Refresh & Detox Herbal Tea can help cleanse toxins and impurities out of the drinker's body. Green tea and dandelion tea are available to help boost metabolism and promote weight loss. Some teas can even help ease arthritis through anti-inflammatory ingredients such as turmeric root and fennel.

Mental Benefits

In addition to being good for your physical health, tea also has many mental health benefits. Blends of tea and herbs mixed with plants and berries can help with focus and clarity. Teas from all over the world, if brewed correctly, can help ease anxiety. Chamomile tea, in particular, is recognized for its calming and soothing effects. This is also what makes it a key ingredient in teas that promote good sleep. Other ingredients that can help you get a restful night's sleep include meadowsweet and heather, which can be found in our organic Twilight Blend. The right tea can even help improve your memory.

The correct tea blend can provide countless mental and physical health benefits. If you’re searching for the perfect blend or strain of tea to benefit you, check out Culinary Teas today.
