4 Health Benefits of Drinking Tea

On chilly winter days, there is nothing better than curling up on a comfy couch with your closest friends and a warm cup of tea. Whether you are still loving that pumpkin spice flavor or you’re craving something minty for winter, we want you to know that your lovely, flavorful indulgence also has amazing benefits that will keep you happy and healthy while you’re warming from the inside out.

Revive Your Youthful Glow

We all know that those smile lines are just proof that you love life, but it’s also nice to know that tea contains antioxidants that fight off the signs of aging.

Both black and green tea contain different types of antioxidants, much like fruits and veggies, which means that having a cup is an easy way to keep you looking as young as you feel.

Perk Up With Less Caffeine

Nothing is better than waking up in the morning to a warm, energizing drink. Tea has less caffeine than coffee, and we always have decaffeinated varieties available. This means that you can enjoy a little pick-me-up at any time of the day, without the withdrawal headaches that come from too much coffee.

If you’re trying to conquer your coffee addiction, then try one of our chai tea lattes. It has all the foamy goodness of the coffee version, but it won’t keep you up at night.

Strengthen Your Body

We always love looking out across our tables and seeing smiles galore, and health benefits are always something to smile about.

Natural ingredients in tea are good for your teeth, your heart, your bones, and your digestive system. That means tea drinkers have brighter smiles, happier hearts, stronger bones, and overall healthier bodies.

The best part is that long-term tea lovers have the biggest benefits in this area, so you can feel good about having a cup - or three - every day. So drink that second cup of tea. It will make you look and feel good, knowing that you are taking care of your body and enjoying a warm treat at the same time.

Skip Those Seasonal Colds

Everyone has contracted the winter sniffles before, but tea drinkers are less prone to illness. Drinking tea gives your immune system a boost of vitamins and minerals that can prevent you from getting sick. That means less time in bed and more time out and about enjoying the season with friends and family.

We know that you don’t need a reason to savor a cup of tea, but it’s always nice to know more about how your favorite beverage is good for your health. From our tea shop to you, we hope that the new year brings you and your loved ones optimal health and plenty of time to pop in for a cup.
