The Best Teas to Start Your Morning
Green tea is one of the most popular teas for boosting energy in the morning. There is an incredibly wide range of health benefits to drinking green tea. Studies have shown consistent consumption of green tea to increase blood flow, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and increase brain activity.
Though it does not contain as much caffeine as coffee or other caffeinated beverages, it can increase energy. The L-theanine amino acid present in green tea allows for caffeine to be absorbed by the body slower, meaning it’s effects are extended. No wonder it’s one of the most popular caffeinated teas on the market.
If you’re looking for the highest caffeine content possible without getting an espresso shot, black tea is your best choice. The average black tea contains 47 milligrams of caffeine for every 8 ounce serving, though some may contain closer to 90 milligrams. Similar to green tea, there are infinite health benefits to drinking black tea. It has been suggested that it can lower the risk of heart disease, regulate blood sugar, and improve your gut health.
This tea is chock full of vitamins and minerals that can help nourish and brighten the skin. In fact, placing tea bags under your eyes can reduce puffiness, inflammation, and dark circles.
Ever had a cold and been told to drink some hot tea? Well, peppermint tea is the one you should drink. It has been considered a natural remedy for a cold or upset stomach for decades. It has a crisp, refreshing flavor that cuts through the yucky sick feeling you may have. Though it is caffeine free, it has been shown to improve mood and memory in a study done by Northumbria University. It can even help clear up acne if applied to the skin.
Hands down the most beneficial tea out there (in the opinion of this CosyLiving blog writer) is ginger tea. Though it is naturally caffeine free, the myriad of benefits far outweigh the loss of caffeine. Studies have shown that it increases blood flow and circulation, decreases inflammation, and strengthen immunity. Ginger is a spicy flavor that may not be for everyone, so drink with caution.
