Tasty, tempting Tea!

One of my friends refers to tea as dirty water. Well, I think she just hasn't tried enough varieties!

Tea is a healthy, zero calorie beverage that can be enjoyed hot or cold and comes in so many flavors and types, it's tough to get bored.

If you're looking for an alternative to sugary sodas and juices, add tea to your shopping list.

Here's my top three favorite teas:
  • Red rooibos tea with vanilla beans
  • Herbal tea with a chamomile base
  • Spiced herbal chai made with black pepper
A writer friend of mine wrote a wonderful primer on other types of tea (including naturally caffeinated varieties that I can't enjoy due to an autoimmune sensitivity) titled "5 types of tea and their health benefits" for Vista Magazine. Check it out to learn more about black, green, white, chai and herbal teas!

Do you enjoy tea? I love brewing a pot of herbal tea made from dried chamomile flowers and rose hips flavored with a spoon of honey.

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  2. I love tea, though don't have a lot of experience with the "natural" variety.

    We're still using bags, at this point.

  4. I love chai tea, and have been making a "from scratch" version for a while now. It takes a bit of time, but is totally worth it.

  5. I love tea. I usually have several varieties of tea at home at all times. In fact, one of my goals when I go to England this summer is to find some wonderful new teas to bring home with me.
