Green tea is a simple type of tea (no added milk needed) made from exactly the same type of tea leaf, but left a bit more unprocessed with oxidation techniques. This leaves the tea with enhanced antioxidant properties, perfect for a detoxing lifestyle. For those wanting a super-packed detoxing tea, they need look no further than Matcha green tea; a fine green power made from the unrefined leaves, packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it is perfect for someone wanting to follow a healthier lifestyle.
For the mellower types, herbal teas like chamomile and jasmine can provide a calming oasis where you can lose yourself. Also working as a natural sleeping aid, chamomile can relax the body and mind as well as relieving stresses; perfect to relax after a long day in the office. On the other hand, refreshingly vibrant tea such as lemongrass and peppermint can rejuvenate and restore the body, for when we need the get up and go to carry on through the day.
More adventurous people might want to try more exotic teas such as chilli or oolong tea; also known as blue tea, this blend originated in the mountains of Taiwan. Whichever you choose, both have distinctive tastes for a daring pallet or perhaps new concoctions such as liquorice and popcorn flavoured tea; offering variations on what we can call normal. No matter what type of mood you’re in though, whether it’s tired, indulgent, fussy or stressed, there will always be a type of tea suited to your needs.
