The 7 reasons why we love tea (and why you should too)
Our whole-leaf teas are ethically sourced and contain 100% of natural ingredients. Tea has been proven to improve health, energy levels and well-being in so many ways. But above this, we love every cup.
1. Tea is good for us
We love knowing we are being good to ourselves. Among the numerous health benefits of tea, tea is naturally packed with antioxidants, which will protect you from free radicals. This means that they boost your immune system, and are fantastic for keeping you looking fresh (thanks to anti-ageing properties) and feeling great. Even though, tea is not a miracle cure, these antioxidants might also help protect you against cancer. Other studies say that drinking tea could help reduce the risk of cardiovascular and degenerative diseases such as heart attacks by lowering the level of cholesterol. For this, it is worth keeping on sipping tea.
2. Tea gives us energy
We love feeling revitalised. Theine contained in tea is released much more slowly than caffeine from coffee, resulting in a more revitalised feeling instead of an agitating effect. The high with coffee will also last shorter and drop quicker. It is perfect to wake you up in the morning and keep you going throughout the day. If you too would like to feel more alert, tea is the best choice.
3. Tea can help us get a perfect body
We love enjoying different flavours, from sweet ceylon with vanilla to flowery jasmine silver needle, without worrying about the calories. As a practically calorie-free drink, it is a great substitute to sugar-packed soft drinks. Also, some of the teas, such as green tea, might be a great aid in helping people who want to shed weight since it burns calories and kick starts your metabolism rate naturally. And while drinking a few cups of tea each morning won’t have you looking like a bodybuilder any time soon, it can help you improve your endurance at the gym and build muscle. You know what to quench your thirst with now.
4. Tea can help us reduce stress
We love taking time out with a cup of tea when we are feeling too much pressure at work or are annoyed with our other halves. Tea has been found to work as an anti-depressant and helps reduce tension. Meaning that taking a cup next time you’re feeling a little low might just help boost your mood. Don’t we say tea time, me time? Let it go with a cuppa.
5. Tea keeps us hydrated
We love quenching our thirst with tea. Tea is compared to water for hydration as it contributes to our overall fluid needs. Whether hot or on ice in a scorching hot summer day, it will replace any fluids you’ve lost through sweating. Keeping hydrated is important to grow lean muscle and maintain the healthy youthful look of your skin.
6. Tea wams us up
We love saying goodbye to the cold whils drinking tea. First thing to do when arriving at the office in the morning or at home at night after a little walk in the cold is to make a big mug of hot tea. It feels good and raise your body temperature instantly. It also perfectly warms your hands up. To feel warmer in the inside and outside, tea can be your new best buddy.
7. Tea allows us to socialise
We love meeting up with friends around a cup of tea. Whether you plan to organise a fancy afternoon tea party or to share some gossips with your best friend at home, drinking tea is a great way to catch up with friends. Think tea to make your entourage happy.
