As you may be able to tell from the header of this blog, tea is a pretty important thing to me. I drink it every day, with very, very few exceptions. It has TONS of benefits, besides warming you up in the winter. It’s healthy, first of all. It cleanses your system, is really good for your stomach, and is a great antioxidant. There is a very long-standing tradition with tea in many countries, such as India, England, China, and Turkey. Even if tea isn’t traditional where you live, you should make it a tradition of your own! No matter what kind of tea you like, there is a reason this aromatic beverage has been around for thousands of years: its the best! Here are some of my favorite tea flavors:

lavender tea

Lavender Tea. So aromatic and flowery, it’s one of the most fragrant teas I’ve ever had.

masala chai

Masala Chai. Or Indian Chai Tea. Or just plain Chai. It has so many rich aromas, this tea always reminds me of the holiday season. Chai tea has a black tea base with ginger, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, anise, peppercorn, and other “warm spices”, and is usually drank with milk. It’s like a massage for your taste buds.

earl grey

Earl Grey. The old-fashioned favorite. English tea with a hint of bergamot oil that gives it the luxurious flavor it has. This is fancy tea. I like it with sugar and a splash of milk.

green tea

Green Tea. Another classic. This tea is known for it’s antioxidant and cleansing purposes. Besides being incredibly healthy, it’s also delicious. It comes in many flavors, my favorites are Green Tea with Aloe, Prickly Pear, Mandarin, or Jasmine.


Jasmine Tea. Another fragrant, floral tea that makes you feel as if you’re in the middle of a jasmine garden in the spring.
