Which Brew is Best for you – 7 herbal tea’s explained

Yes, it’s true, herbal teas count towards your daily water intake, which is great news… But not half as great as some of the incredible health benefits that they offer.

But with so many to choose from and so many flavours, which dies what and is there one better than another?

I do enjoy a good Brew, it’s part of being

Me, drinking my peppermint brew

British I think… It’s in the genes. But I am also quite partial to a herbal tea as well. In fact, as I sit back to write this blog, I’m having a deliciously fresh tasting peppermint brew.

Each flavour does have distinct benefits and tastes, and it pretty much boil down down to your own preferences and tastes.

It is highly unlikely that everyone will like every flavour I mean some do have quite a kicky oomph to them. While green tea is quite tangy, peppermint is quite cool, ginger had a dry snappiness and chamomile a bit more floral.

I have tasted ALL variations, but there are three staples in my house – green tea with lemon, ginger & lemon and finally, peppermint.

So, which does what….?

#1 Peppermint tea

Peppermint tea is well known for aiding abdominal bloating & gas, but it also good for relieving muscle spasms as well. In addition, peppermint can help to reduce nauseated improve/increase the body temperature.
If you are a long term sufferer of bloating then try adding a cup of Peppermint tea into your daily routine and see if it helps to relieve the discomfort.

#2 Ginger teaginger-root-powder-organic-jpg.png

Ginger is great at soothing an upset stomach, and can the tea is no different. It can also curb nausea& vomiting . You can make ginger tea from fresh ginger root – just simmer a piece of root on the hob for 10-15minutes – add some honey & fresh lemon juice and you will have a powerful cold & germ fighting remedy.

#3 Chamomile tea

Chamomile has a gently calming appeal, making it good for those who suffer with stress or anxiety. It can also aid sleep, so helpful to those who have sleep disturbances, or difficulty falling asleep.
Chamomile is great if drank after a meal, as it helps with the digestion of food.
Furthermore, Chamomile has been found to help with coughs, colds and fevers, as well as mouth inflammation.

500x449#6 Echinacea Tea

Echinacea tea has become quite a popular remedy to prevent, or even tackle the everyday common cold. It has been found that echinacea can work to improve and boost the immune system, allowing it to defend against bugs, viruses and infections more easily.

#7 Rooibos Tea

Rooibos, or Red Bush Tea, comes from South Africa. In South Africa it has historically been used for medicinal purposes, although at present there is very little scientific evidence to back up claims. Of the few studies that have been carried out, it has been found that Rooibos tea may be beneficial to bone health, growth and density. This same study concluded that the tea also reduced inflammation and cell toxicity.

It is also claimed that Rooibos tea may help to reduce the risk of heart disease, and can help to reduce LDL (Bad cholesterol), whilst increasing HDL (good Cholesterol).

So whether you drink a combination of all of the herbal brews, or stick to one particular one, the benefits are wide and varied. however, it all comes down to personal tests and preferences.
