loose leaf tea in spring

Ahhh Springtime!

The season of new beginnings. Delicate buds begin to open to reveal their inner beauty and the earth comes to life again. Sunlight shines down on us so that we can start to unravel ourselves from scarves, gloves, and winter coats. 

I like to think of Spring as a personal renewal time as well. Something about having the windows open again, taking walks with the pup, and feeling like I am emerging from my winter den. The types of tea I select also start to shift. With so many loose tea blends to explore with delicious flavors, beautiful fragrances, and amazing health benefits, loose tea is a perfect choice for your own renewal.

Maybe you're new to loose leaf tea, or if you’re a tea lover like me, maybe you're just looking to find the best loose leaf tea for you. Well you’re in the right place. Read on to learn about the benefits of loose leaf tea and some suggested flavors to try.

Green Tea

Talk about an amazing cup full of health benefits. Beyond the hydration benefits, drinking green tea may improve dental health, your mood, bone mineral density, along with the health and performance of your brain. Green tea has also been shown to encourage weight loss, maintain the cardiovascular system, and improve the condition of your skin. Some studies suggest that green tea can even lower the risk of some cancers, infections, and type2 diabetes. 

Check out these delicious flavors of green tea!

White Tea

White tea contains some compounds that, according to some studies, may help fight cancer and help protect your teeth from bacteria, help control diabetes, improve heart disease, aid in weight loss, and relieve colds. 

Examples of white tea are:

    Oolong Tea
    Looking for healthier hair, a stronger immune system, and better skin? Then Oolong may just be your cup of tea. Studies suggest that drinking Oolong tea may also prevent osteoporosis and tooth decay. Oolong tea is also known to stabilize blood sugar and reduce cholesterol.

      Herbal Tea

      The antioxidants in herbal teas are known to have anti-aging properties. Herbal tea is the perfect type of tea to fight colds, boost the immune system, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and relieve anxiety and stress. Just like Oolong also promotes healthier skin. 

      Relax and try one of these herbal teas:

        Chai Tea

        According to studies, drinking chai tea may help lower blood sugar, encourage weight loss, reduce pain and inflammation, detoxification, reduce tumor growth, preventing heart diseases, and eliminate constipation. Moderate consumption of chai tea may also offer digestive support, ease menstrual cramps, and reduce the risk of various cancers.

        Lots of choices here - why not give one a try?

          Black Tea

          It almost sounds too good to be true! Studies suggest that drinking black tea may:

          • Prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes
          • Reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer
          • Improve oral health, digestion, and increase alertness

          And if you experience puffy eyes, asthma, stress, and diarrhea, you might want to give black tea a try! With more caffeine than other teas, it is recommended not to drink more than 2 cups of black tea a day.

          A few delicious flavors of black tea to try:

            Rooibos Tea

            Rooibos tea is known to contain anti-aging and anti-allergic properties and prevent diabetes and cancer. Naturally caffeine free, it may provide healthier, stronger bones, and better skin. According to studies, drinking rooibos tea can also help in fighting dandruff, lowering blood pressure, and promoting healthy digestion.

            You can just taste the names of these Rooibos teas:

              Matcha Tea

              Matcha tea...Green tea powder...Have you heard about this wonder? Matcha is so amazing because the entire leaves are dissolved in water so you ingest all their antioxidant powers with antioxidant numbers off the charts
              — 6.2x more than goji berries, 7x that of dark chocolate, 17x that of wild blueberries, and 60.5x that of spinach! Sorry, Popeye! 

              But take a look at what these amazing antioxidants may be able to help you with:
              • Reducing the risk of heart diseases and type2 diabetes
              • Helping in detoxification and cleansing of the body
