Have you ever seen someone close to you stressing out? It's hard to watch, yeah? Have you ever said to them, "How about a cup of chamomile tea? That sounds nice, doesn't it?" My immediate response would be, "You never loved me. You should know that Ginger Turmeric is my favorite stress relief tea." There is so much more to tea than green, black, herbal and chamomile. And I'm here to give you a few ideas.
Aside from being known for stress relief, green tea is also known for it's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
To Tea or Not to Tea
I know why you never stayed... You sat there and looked. You tried. You did not have cell service and it was getting late. That damn tea aisle in the grocery store can be really intimidating. There are dozens of boxes sometimes and none of them explain what the hell Tulsi is or how Dandelion Root is good for you. I know it's 2021 and we have this information at our fingertips, but again, you came to the store with a list and a schedule. You don't quite have the time today to do research. In addition, what if the flavor is bad? Now you've spent $12 on a box of tea that will take up valuable cabinet real estate.
The "It's Not That Easy" Disclaimer
I hate to be the mouthy chick with too much information, but all teas are different. Some are dark, some are light, some are sweet, some are astringent, some have caffeine, some have a lot of caffeine, some make you poop -- you get the drift. As there are a lot of people out there who are not terribly familiar with the different varieties, I am going to suggest some fail safe teas that are most popular. These are best sellers and for very good reasons.
1) Earl Grey - oldie but a goodie. This is a black tea that was modified centuries ago by an Earl (his name was Grey) because black tea was a little too basic for him. It became very popular and producers all over the world fought over the claim to flavored tea fame. Today, many people still enjoy this black tea with bergamot flavors in the morning and afternoon.
Type: Black / Caffeine: High / Brewing Instructions: 1.5 tsp per 12 oz (typical mug size) 212F - 100C water for 5 minutes / Mixers: milk & sweetener
2) Fruity Green Tea - Fruity meaning mango, strawberry, peach, etc. There are many fruity green tea blends out there that will ease the suspicions you have of buying expensive tea and hating it. Green tea is a truly splendid beverage, especially during the day. During the 10am break time or even lunch, green tea is the perfect beverage to enjoy and it will also pick you up out of the mid day slump.
Type: Green / Caffeine: Medium / Brewing Instructions: 1.5 tsp per 12 oz (typical mug size) 180F - 82C water for 3 minutes / Mixers: sweetener
