Different blends for different reasons
Tea is known to contain countless health benefits and medicinal properties. To get the most out of these benefits, it’s important to understand how different blends of tea can affect different aspect of your health. Adding a daily cup of tea to your routine can help you boost your overall health; knowing exactly which blends to choose can turn this daily habit into a lifelong wellness practice.
A tea habit is suitable for every kind of lifestyle because tea itself is so versatile. Even someone who’s always on the go can conveniently enjoy a cup of tea with portable, well designed tea bags like T-GO’s Gourmet Tea. The T-GO tea bag, which uses the patented “spoon in teabag” design, gives you the freedom to enjoy a cup of tea whenever and wherever. It’s also a great way to share the soothing effects of tea outside of your home, with your work colleagues and friends.
Here's a quick guide on how you can pick different types of tea to improve different aspects of your health.
Black tea for overall health
Black tea is one of the three “true” types of tea, since it comes from the camellia sinensis plant, and contains a number of antioxidants, which are vital for maintaining your overall health. These antioxidants help fight off compounds in the body that cause damage to your cells. Black tea is known to be beneficial for hearth health, immune health and gut health.
It is also the most popular type of tea in the world, and as a result, comes in the most variety of flavours. Classic flavours like T-GO’s Ceylon Black Tea, Earl Grey Tea or English Breakfast Tea are essential for every tea collection, while flavours like T-GO’s Strawberry Black Tea or Peach Black Tea can add more variety to your selection. If you want to skip the caffeine altogether, you can opt for T-GO’s Earl Grey Decaf Tea.
Chamomile tea for better sleep
If you’re having any trouble related to sleep, a chamomile tea may be just what you need. Chamomile tea contains apigenin, an antioxidant which promotes sleepiness and reduces insomnia. Making a regular habit of drinking this herbal tea before bed can improve your sleep quality over time. It’s also the perfect carry-along for trips away from home. It’s a great way to ensure a restful night of sleep even when you’re away from your own bed. TGO’s Camomile Tea is a must-have addition to any tea collection, and T-GO’s Sleep Tea is especially crafted for the goal of better sleep.
Teas for digestion and bloating
Which is the best tea for digestion? That depends on which aspect of your digestive health you want to target. There are many types of tea that contain unique benefits for your gut health
- Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce stomach cramps. It improves the absorption of starch, which aids the functioning of the digestive system. T-GO’s Green Tea and Jasmine Green Tea are worthy additions to your daily selection to help maintain stomach ease.
- Peppermint teas, such as T-GO’s Mint Tea, are great at soothing an upset stomach. Peppermint helps to reduce bloating, stomach pains and excess gas. It also packs an additional burst of freshness, especially in blends such as T-GO’s Refresh Tea.
- Ginger, which is the key ingredient in T-GO’s Digest Tea, is famous for its digestive benefits and nausea-reducing effects.
- Chamomile tea is the best tea for digestion at night. A cup after your last meal can help with digestion and prevent stomach issues. Combined with its benefits for sleep, a cup of chamomile tea is the perfect way to wind down your day
