Types Of Teas And Their Health Benefits

Tea is a favorite drink that can either refresh in the summer or warm you up during the winter days, and while you enjoy the consumption, it also offers you health benefits. You can get the same benefits during the hot summer days by preparing your own ice teas.

“There doesn’t seem to be a downside to tea,” says American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, LD. “I think it’s a great alternative to coffee drinking. First, tea has less caffeine. It’s pretty well established that the compounds in tea – their flavonoids – are good for the heart and may reduce cancer.”

There isn’t a rule about how long tea needs to be steeped for the most benefit, either how much you should drink. Nutritionists agree that any tea is good tea, as long as you do not add any sweeteners. Without the sweeteners you will also avoid the extra calories.
