As a tea fan I can tell you that it has so many health benefits that you can go ahead and enjoy a daily brew—or several.

You should know that a true tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It consists of beneficial polyphenols and other antioxidants.

Also, its color, depends on the amount of processing and oxidation it undergoes. It is frequently believed that the less oxidized a tea is, the lighter it is in color and the more antioxidants it has.

Here are 5 types of healthy teas that you should definitely try.

1.Pu-erh

This tea has a bold, earthly flavour and is valued in China. Pronounced as poo-air, the tea has a lower antioxidant content than white or green tea.

According to a research it may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart diseases.

2.Black

Black tea is available in wide range of flavours: nutty, spicy, fruity and flowery. The most popular variety of black tea include Darjeeling and Earl Grey.

A research shows that this type of tea may help reduce the risk of heart diseases and even fight colon cancer. It also prevents growth of bacteria, which is responsible for cavities.

3.Oolong

Somewhere between black and green tea in color, flavour, and antioxidant levels, oolong tea has a sweet or florid aroma.

Drinking several cups of it a day has been shown to help relieve the irritated skin of atopic dermatitis.

4.Green

Green tea is rich in a polyphenol called EGCG. It has undergone numerous researches and the result is pretty splendid. Studies has shown that this type of tea has various healing properties.

It may help prevent a host of cancers, lower cholesterol, reduce inflammation, and enhance immunity. Some examples of green tea are Japanese Sencha, Matcha tea. Having this type of tea every morning, regularly is very healthy.

5.White

This tea has a very mild flavour. This is because it’s the least processed variety of tea. White tea may contain the most antioxidants.

Some evidence even suggests that it may obstruct cancer growth and kill the bacteria that cause pneumonia and cavities.

What about iced tea? Is it healthy?

There is a possibility that you can get same benefits from cold tea as from hot—but that depends on how you prepare it.

To maintain its valuable antioxidant compounds, chill the brewed hot tea in the refrigerator. Don’t sweeten it heavily, and don’t add ice—doing so appears to change the chemistry of those compounds, making them less available for the body to absorb.

And don’t expect to be able to copy the health effects of brewed tea with bottled supermarket brands—they’re typically far higher in sugar and other additives.
