Simple guide to herbal teas.

Tea! Tea! and More Tea!

I was at the grocery store the other day and noticed the tea section had almost doubled. There are a number of new brands and interesting flavors on them market, but if you're not familiar with herbal teas, I can see how this can be overwhelming.

One thing you should note: the quality of tea does matter. So before you fill up your pantry with tea bags or loose leaf teas, do a bit of research on where the company sources their teas and how the tea is processed. For example, I like buying Certified Organic teas, find what works for you and go with that. 

Below is a quick list of herbal teas and some of their known benefits. Before you begin your exploration into herbal teas, you should note that some of these teas have been used for thousands of years because of their medicinal properties. So, like anything else: do your research, consult your doctor, or work with a certified health coach if you're unsure of how these teas might affect you. 

I'll do a post with some of my favorite brands in the future, but for now here's a list of teas and how they might help you out. Enjoy!
