Rainbow Tea for Health isn’t a recipe but beverages of health. There are so many tea options the buy I thought I would share a few of my favorites.
Our family has been moving slowly from coffee to tea. Some of the tea shown below are just a few of what we have in our pantry including some new additions. I tried each tea and found them to be rich and complex in flavor. Rainbow tea for health is a great way to start the day.
Just A Few Teas: Tazo, Rishi, Republic of Tea
I will give you a bit of information about each rainbow tea for health. Since this is just a snippet of information, dive in and do some digging; tea is a great addition to everyone’s diet. You will be amazed at the health benefits and delicious flavors unique to each variety of tea.
Hibiscus tea is made from the tropical plant, Sabdariffa, a shrub native to Africa. This tea has a deep red color and can be enjoyed hot or cold. On multiple sites, it is noted that it can expand your blood vessels and lower blood pressure. It was said that if you already have low blood pressure or heart-related problems, you may want to avoid this type of tea. However, if you can, drink away!
In addition, it is known to strengthen the immune system by providing vitamin C and antioxidants. It also stimulates weight-loss, helps to lower the bad “LDL” cholesterol, contains liver-protecting properties, and reduces inflammation. What a tea drink away!
Wild sweet orange tea
Wild sweet orange tea is really satisfying and sweet. I had not tried this tea before but enjoyed distinguishing the fresh flavors.
Orange tea has flavors of lemongrass, spearmint, rose petals, and orange peel. The taste of the orange was the strongest of all the flavors. In addition, it has a sweet refreshing flavor without caffeine; hence, enjoy as an after-dinner sweet treat. If you prefer tea with less sweetness this might not be the tea for you.
Orange tea is packed with powerful flavonoids. The compound, flavonoid removes the harmful effects of free-radicals. Orange tea also contains vitamin C.
Green Ginger tea
Green Ginger tea is spicy and refreshing. Green Ginger tea has lively flavors infused with pear to provide additional sweetness.
“Everything good is found in ginger,” an old Indian proverb. Ginger tea has a host of health benefits that cultures have used for nearly 2,000 for medicinal purposes.
Most importantly, there are numerous studies and articles praising green tea. Green tea carries large amounts of essential nutrients. Hense, loaded with antioxidants, which reduce free radicals, in turn protecting cells and molecules from damage. These powerful antioxidants may lower your risk of breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers.
The benefits of green tea continue with increased brain function, boosted metabolic rates, and dental health. There is evidence that green tea can reduce the risk of type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. I think I am changing my morning routine to include green tea!
Berry blossom white tea
Berry blossom white tea did not turn out to have the purple tinge I was going for. However, I really enjoyed its flavors. The caffeine level is three out of five, which is pretty good.
White tea is a fairly new tea coming into creation in the last two centuries. There is some debate as to the term “white” tea means. Some refer to white tea as meaning very little processing while others consider white tea to be very young leaves. The tea lighter in flavor in short, because of being rolled and not oxidized.
Further, I was unable to find the health benefits of berry blossom tea. Above all, it is packed with antioxidants.
For instance, the flavor of the berry blossom tea is subtle and relaxing. The tea has delicate flavors of huckleberry and white cranberry. Likewise, I agreed with the description. Yum.
Opening the package, I found it had a strong, pleasant blueberry scent. Steeping in hot water for five minutes, after that, it had a distinct berry taste. I very much enjoyed the soft subtle flavors of this tea.
Meanwhile, enjoy tea anytime! Across the board, high-quality teas are full of health benefits that should not be ignored. In addition, if you love your coffee, switch it out with a caffeinated tea. It provides added health benefits you might not be able to get with your regular cup of joe. With all the hundreds of tea options, I have no doubt you can find one you will love!
Most importantly, enjoy whatever tea, hot or cold with some vegan gluten free Irish soda bread perfect way to start the day!
