For the majority of my life, I’ve been a tea girl. I never really got into coffee until very recently, but even so, I always come back to good black tea for my caffeine fix and the delicious flavor, while herbal tea carries me through the evening. The aroma and taste of spices seeping their flavor into hot water just gets me ever damn time. Here I’m sharing my five favorite teas and why I like to drink them.

  1. Earl Grey. I will forever be loyal to earl grey, as this is my absolute favorite tea. My mom used to drink this tea when I was little and I’d always sneak a sip, eventually turning into a self-proclaimed addict myself. The lavender and bergamot are so comforting and soothing while still providing you with the caffeine fix you need first thing in the morning. Mix it with a splash of your favorite milk after it has steeped for a few minutes (not cream! It takes away too much from the flavor) and you’re golden. 😉
  2. Chai. Chai is a tea I drink for the flavor more than anything else. This is usually my afternoon go-to drink. This tea can be made in a number of different ways, which I love because it gives me a chance to taste all the different variations on such an amazing flavor. This is another tea I personally love to add a splash of unsweetened coconut milk to or even drink it in latte form. Mm. Mm. Mm.
  3. Dandelion root. This has a very strong and bitter taste, but this tea is excellent for digestion. Although our bodies don’t ever really need help detoxing since our system does that all on its own, this tea really helps that process operate a little more efficiently.
  4. Peppermint. This one is excellent for staving off cravings. Sipping on peppermint tea is almost like brushing your teeth. When do you really crave something after a good brushing? This tea is also ideal for aiding in digestion and reduces inflammation. Suffering from a lack of sleep? Peppermint notes might just be the ticket to sleepy town.
  5. Green tea. We all know the health benefits bursting from this tea, such as an increased metabolism, and these benefits just can’t be denied. So there’s every reason to brew up. Similarly to chai, there are so many different types of green tea out there. While some are bitter, others are a little lighter in taste and potency. I personally love green ginger tea, which tastes amazing and has an added benefit of being a digestion aid.

Tea is just too good to not take interest in it. You can even make your own, which is interestingly therapeutic. Get to brewing and let the aromatic beverage do the rest.
