Now, more than ever, we are all thinking about our health. Luckily for Two Leaves and a Bud tea drinkers, your perfect cup of tea isn’t just delicious, it’s also good for you!
Whether you’re sipping black, green or herbal tea, there are all sorts of health benefits to be aware of. Here’s a quick rundown:
Herbal teas (also known as tisanes) feature something great for wellness…herbs and spices! The benefits depend on the blend. For example, our Organic Invigorate is a blend of peppermint for concentration and blood pressure; lemon oil for mood health; lemongrass for digestion; and nettle for boosting immunity. Our Alpine Berry has vitamin C and antioxidants, and it includes hibiscus, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can lower blood pressure.
Many people are familiar with green teas like our Organic Matcha Mint and Organic Energize as a rich source of antioxidants. But green tea has also been found to be high in the amino acid L-Theanine, which can have a number of benefits like counteracting stress (which we could all benefit from right now!), improving memory, and helping to prevent strokes.
While not normally recognized for their healthful properties, black teas like our Organic Assam and our Organic Darjeeling feature a number of benefits. Those include high flavonoids for heart health; polyphenols, which are a source of antioxidants; and catechins and tannins, which can improve oral health.
Two Leaves and a Bud also features an entire collection of Wellness Teas, blended specifically for their benefits, and for your drinking pleasure, of course!
