Types Of Teas And Their Health Benefits

As promised, today I’m writing about the types of teas and their health benefits. I’ve mentioned many times on my social media channels and here about drinking tea. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved drinking it and for me, the day does not go by without a cup of tea.

White Tea

If I had to choose only one tea, I would always go with white tea. It will always remind me of the times when I was travelling by train (or by bus) for five hours to university back and forth on the weekends (I was studying on the weekends while working during the week). I always had a bottle of white tea with me, a snack and a fashion magazine or books (if I had to study).

Besides the great taste of white tea, it is loaded with antioxidants. It also improves oral health and fights cavities. I think what I liked the most about white tea back then is that it helps you with losing weight. What’s better than a cup of tea that boosts your metabolism? πŸ™‚

This kind of tea boosts fertility and improves reproductive health, may help with fighting cancer, protects brain health and reduces cholesterol levels, as well.

Black Tea

Majority of people drink black tea with milk or cold as iced tea. English breakfast, earl grey and Irish breakfast are some of them. Just like white tea, black tea helps fight cancer. Other than that, it boosts heart health, helps reduces risk of diabetes and lowers the risk of a stroke. Whenever you have an upset stomach or struggling with diarrhea, I would highly recommend drinking a cup of black tea. What I also like a lot about black tea is that it is a great stress reliever and still has some balanced caffeine source if you need it.

Green Tea

You already know that I’m a big fan of matcha as I’ve mentioned it here, which is one of the types of green tea. Some of the great benefits of drinking this kind of tea are helping protect your heart and brain cells, protecting vision and preventing eye disease and promoting bone health. Consuming green tea may also prevent diabetes and Alzheimer’s or memory loss. This kind of tea is also great for losing weight, because it reduces your appetite.

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea, which is partially fermented, is a traditional Chinese tea. Just like the teas above, it has many great and pretty similar health benefits. Since it is loaded with antioxidants, it lowers the risk of cancer. If you’re struggling with eczema, oolong tea might be something you would like to consider, because it reduces the appearance of it. This tea also supports a healthy brain.

Oolong tea reduces the risk of heart disease, prevents diabetes, decreases inflammation and prevents bone loss. If you’re looking for something to boost your metabolism and burn fat, this kind of tea is something you should drink.

Whichever tea you choose or drink daily, you’ll get lots of great health benefits in a cup, that’s for sure. That being said, I recommend to try assorted loose leaf tea variety pack from Oriental blends, which includes ten samples.

    1. I drink tea without sugar, but I do add honey to my matcha only ☺🌷

  1. I have drunk rooibas (red bush) for a number of years which has an almost negligible amount of caffeine. I am not a big fan of adding flavourings to teas. Enjoy your cuppa πŸ™‚

  2. Great post! Question, is coffee considered a tea? πŸ˜… I’ve never been one to drink tea, but these health benefits sure make me want to try them! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m obsessed with drinking tea. It is my favourite beverage. Over the years, I cut back on the sugar and stopped adding it to my tea. I drink black tea mostly, green tea (trying to replace black tea with green tea), occasionally oolong tea (we have it in our cupboard because my husband believes it helps with weight loss even though we haven’t used it yet…) and I have tried white tea before, although I find it a bit on the bitter side.

    1. Sounds great! ☺🌸 It seems like we have the same obsession πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘

      1. Exactly πŸ™‚, I’m about to make one for myself right now πŸ’•

      2. Oh, sorry to hear that, hopefully you’ll feel better soon πŸ™‚

      3. I figured out an alternative that won’t give me stomach pain. I’ll ask for honey next time instead of their questionable sugar syrup. Still learning what triggers pain and what doesn’t.

  4. You have an impressive tea knowledge. Ula, as well as an impressive tea collection. Thanks for sharing some of your expertise!

    My personal favorite is sencha (Japanese green tea). At first I tried it by itself, to avoid “biasing” my taste buds with added flavors, and wouldn’t you know it, I actually like it that way! So now it’s always 100% pure, straight-up sencha. Nice, particularly on a cold winter afternoon, in the office watching the snow fall outside.

  5. I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award because I think that you are very deserving of it! I have tagged you in my recent post where all of the info can be found there.

    1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I really appreciate it! πŸ™‚πŸŒΊ

  6. Great post Ula. Teas do not get the props they deserve. I prefer coffee, but do drink a tea for change. I love your Photos as you are telling us that Spring has sprung in Canada. I love your β€œElegance with Sneekers” look. You really pull it off very well. Enjoy you Blog.

    1. Thank you so much and sneakers with dresses and skirts (or jeans) are mostly my go to look πŸ™‚.

  7. I’m actually sitting here reading this with my favourite cup of green tea in hand πŸ™‚ I can actually only drink tea, as although it has some caffeine, it never gives me the jitters like coffee does! Ever since I had my daughter (many years ago) I get heart palpitations from coffee. I think the benefits of tea can never be flagged up too much. White & green are my favourites in part due to the higher levels of antioxidants, but I do like a nice cup of black or Oolang tea too. Thanks for the post & regards from flowery Holland πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for such a nice comment making me want to go and make myself a cup of tea right now πŸ™‚πŸŒΉ. Holland is beautiful to fly over with all those flowers πŸ’•

  8. Thank you Ula for sharing about the different types of Teas; very informative! I love ice Tea in the Summer; which ones do you recommend for that? I don’t like my Tea watered down by too much ice. My other question is “which Teas are sweet? I don’t want to add to it if I can help it, otherwise I love a good steeped Tea with Brown Sugar; I really do! I prefer Coffee though above everything, it’s just me….You look very lovely and comfortable!

  9. I only ever drink tea. Mostly straightforward black tea with milk sans caffeine. I used to drink oolong and lapsang souchong or earl grey. Do you drink many herbals teas?

  10. Yeah, tea is really good for you. It is also beneficial if you drink it during a fast (some will break your fast though). I’m actually going to post about that soon. Good article though πŸ‘

  11. I loved your post about tea! I’m a big tea drinker, but when it comes to straying outside of black teas, I’m a little hesitant. What is your favourite white tea? I would love to try one! Do you buy it online or in tea shops like David’s Tea or Teavana?

    1. I like David’s Tea and online from oriental blends – I mentioned in this post πŸ™‚πŸŒ·

      1. I actually like their blends like: white tea cherry blossom, white tea pomegrateful or white tea lavender swirl πŸ™‚πŸŒΉ
