Tea and Wellness: How Herbal Infusions Can Boost Your Health

Though we love coffee here at Portfolio, we enjoy a good tea as well. That’s why we make sure to always have some in stock! We love tea because of how delicious it is. And let’s not forget about the benefits of drinking herbal tea - which is a lot.

If you aren’t a tea drinker, we hope to sway you on the leafy side of things! We know that tea does tend to taste somewhat grassy, earthy, and even floral at times. And we know this is an acquired taste for some. 

But millions of people in the world drink wellness tea. That should count for something and should convince you to at least try some of the herbal teas we recommend today. 

Some Brew-Tiful Teas to Try

Lemon Ginger Tea

Let’s start with one wellness tea that everyone is familiar with - Lemon Ginger Tea

Lemon Ginger Tea is said to be a fantastic immune-boosting blend. Lemons, like their other citrusy counterparts, are packed with vitamin C - And we all know that’s an essential vitamin to boost your body’s natural defences

With everything that’s been mentioned about vitamin C, it makes sense to think that it can help fight colds and flu-like symptoms… or at least help you feel better. There really isn’t any hard evidence to support this claim, but thousands of tea drinkers swear by this. 

When it comes to overall wellness, we mustn’t forget our digestive health. Ginger is very helpful for easing any tummy troubles and bouts of indigestion. 

Lastly, for a good night’s sleep, try drinking some Lemon Ginger Tea before you hit the sack. It’s a calming drink that can help you shake the stress of the day. Mental health is just as important as your physical health!

Spicy Chai Tea

Listen… With how it’s written, we get that it’s technically calling it Spicy Tea Tea. But for our sake, we’re still calling it Spicy Chai Tea.

Spicy Chai Tea is claimed to be filled with antioxidants. These antioxidants take care of free radicals (which cause oxidative damage to cells). If those don’t get neutralised, they will cause health issues in the future. 

Like others on the list, Spicy Chai Tea is said to help you with your digestion. If you feel like your stomach is acting up a bit, a cup of tea may help soothe it naturally. This is also a helpful tip if you’re on the road as it may sometimes be easier to find an establishment that serves Spicy Chai Tea than a store that sells medicine that you might prefer.

Spicy Chai Tea is also a caffeinated drink. However, it will never be as much as a regular cup of coffee. Spicy Chai contains around 25 to 55 mg per cup while coffee has about 120mg. It’s still enough to give you an energy boost without the help of those intense sports drinks and the like.

Chamomile Tea

Did you know that Chamomile Tea, technically, isn’t actually tea? All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant and chamomile, as you may have already guessed, comes from chamomile. We’ve all widely accepted Chamomile Tea as part of the family over the years but it’s still a fun little fact!

We often grab Chamomile Tea if we have a calming drink. It’s fresh, light, and a little sweet. Its aroma can also act as some sort of aromatherapy. So if you’re brewing a fresh pot, let the smells just waft in the air and help you relax.

Chamomile itself has been used in ancient medicine. If you’re only in the market for wellness teas, this should be on the top of your list. Studies have claimed that it can help boost your immunity, fight against some cancer-causing properties, and help fight cardiovascular disease. With all the benefits of drinking herbal tea like this, you can see why we’ve all come to accept Chamomile Tea as, well, tea!

Matcha Tea

Try out Matcha Tea. After all, matcha got to lose? We know it can be an acquired taste, but like all other teas, you can brew and blend it how you like to make it taste better. You’ve heard of matcha lattes - They’re great!

Matcha Tea is also a great source of antioxidants and is an anti-inflammatory drink as well. Regular consumption of Matcha Tea may even help prevent diseases and keep you in good overall health.

In some cases, Matcha Tea has been observed to slow down weight gain. That’s why we love herbal wellness teas so much. It isn’t just one thing or two things that make them great. You get more than a handful of benefits!
