Benefits of drinking tea

Hello lovelies!

So anyone who knows me personally will know that I am a tea addict... not literally! But I consume an average of 6 cups of tea per day. Some call that a lot, I call it just enough :p

So my cousin was trying to convince me that drinking tea isn't good for you so I argued back while pulling out my phone and aggressively googling comebacks so that I would be left alone. Sadly I never win arguments so I lost but I did learn a few facts about tea! SO I win! HA! I won right...?

  1. Tea tastes amazing
  2. Tea is versatile - drink it hot or cold and there are over 1000 types of tea...
  3. Drinking green tea helps fight diseases
  4. Tea relaxes you 
  5. Tea helps you lose weight- it increases your metabolism 
  6. It's something warm to hold in winter
  7. Tea contains antioxidants
  8. Tea keeps you hydrated
  9. You can drink tea in pretty cups
  10. It helps keep your teeth strong - it's a natural source of fluoride protecting teeth from decay
  11. Tea is easy to make
  12. It's perfect to drink anytime during the day!

Okay I have to mention that most of the benefits I just listed are actually pros of drinking a certain type of tea. While tea in general is good for you, there are about 6 healthy types of tea
They are:
  • Black tea
  • White tea
  • Green tea
  • Oolong tea
  • Flavoured tea
  • Herbal tea

I mostly drink black tea with milk and sugar and have the occasional green, flavoured and herbal tea :p

I love tea so much. I honestly don't think I could go a day without a cup!!

Do you love tea? Which one is your favourite type of tea?

So... I think it's time to go make myself a cup of tea :p
Lots I love, Karine xx
