My Kind of Tea

Who loves tea? What do you prefer, flavored or natural? I've been loving tea for quite some time now.  I have tasted different brand and I wanted to share them with you. 
According to study, drinking tea helps you live longer...
Of course, we all have to die eventually but we also want to enjoy and live life to the fullest before anything else. To be able to do so, we must live healthy, drink healthy and eat healthy food.

As I have said, I will share some brand of tea that I have tasted. The most popular tea from the market is Lipton Black Tea. It tasted the usual 100% natural leaf tea. They also called it the Red Tea. No added sugar that can count as your regular intake of water but it tastes good, no other taste that can ruin your taste bud. I sometimes added a little bit of sugar or honey to make me satisfied or milk for a better taste.

Another one is Alokozay  Green Tea, 100% Pure Ceylon Tea.When my Father-in-law went home from UAE, he happened to take home a box of this tea. The aroma just like the black tea but the color is really green. This is one of the healthiest beverages and one of the most delicious that is loved not just me but for everybody.

Lastly, this is the best tea that I have tasted - Starbucks Teavana, Hibiscus Flavoured Herbal Drink. This is different from the two because it has flavor and kinda sweet. My brother-in-law is working at Starbucks and he always brings home some tea and honey which is I think an excess of inventory.
I don't know what is Hibiscus. But, according to Wikipedia, it is less widely known as rose mallow. In the Philippines, it is called Gumamela which is used by children to make a bubble. Now I know! Lol!
I didn't taste the hibiscus but the sweetness of papaya and mango is obviously gave good taste to the tea. The aroma of cinnamon is very strong than the lemongrass. I tasted much more of cinnamon to this tea. I put honey and it tasted sweeter. I love the blending of cinnamon and honey. I tell you to try it when you happened to drop by at Starbucks. I'm sure all branches offered tea like this one.This is the best tea!

Honey is said to be beneficial, too. It energizes our body, boosts immunity, fights bacteria, promotes healing of cuts and burns and home remedies for a sore throat, hangover and sleeplessness. This is really good to partner with tea. Aside from that, I love to put honey on my pancake which is the best match for tea as breakfast.

Aside from coffee, chocolate, soft drinks and alcohol, tea is one of the most popular manufactured drink in the world. For people choosing a healthy lifestyle, tea is a better option because it has benefits. 

Black tea, green tea or flavored tea, they all have the same benefits that can help people to live longer. 
  • Antioxidants.
  • Maybe prevented or improved arthritis, bone density, cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure and other illness.
  • Boost your fight against Flu.
  • May prevent cavities and gum disease or bad breath.
  • Protective against developing this weakening neurological disorder -Parkinson's Disease.
  • Antibacterial.
  • Weight loss.
Enjoy your cup of tea every day, may it be hot to warm your senses or have it as a chilled thirst beverage.
