There is nothing quite like greeting the colder months of fall with a warm and delicious cup of organic tea. To top it off, tea is not only delicious but also a great beverage to promote brain health.
When visiting a store, you’re bound to be both mesmerized and confused by the wide selection of tea blends in the market. While each brew contains its own unique flavour, we’ve listed down our top four organic tea blends that are both healthy and tasty!
Popcorn, corn on the cob, and now corn tea! Just when you think you’ve been surprised enough, corn brings something new to the table.
Corn tea is prepped two ways, by using roasted corn kernels or dried corn silk. No need to worry though, a lot of marts sell organic corn tea, which you can simply add to boiling water. Not only is it delicious, but it helps hydrate your body and is packed with vitamin C and vitamin B6!
If you want a tea that’s medicinal, then barley tea should be on the top of your list. Served both hot and cold, this popular Korean tea can rid you of various health problems!
Barley tea could be a really effective remedy for urinary tract infections. People with a UTI might have trouble urinating, but barley tea helps with the process and aids in getting rid of the bacteria in your body. Additionally, it even acts as a cooling agent for your body’s core temperature! Perfect for days when you’re battling a cold.
Black Bean Tea
Black bean tea is all the rage in Asia and for good reason. Along with its nutty and sweet taste that make it a delicious drink, it also has been used to help with various ailments.
Black bean has various helpful compounds that improve your body’s metabolism. Higher metabolism in your body means fat absorption is slowed down and the rate at which your body burns fats significantly improves. Along with weight loss, the high fibre content in beans helps regulate your blood sugar levels.
Brown Rice Tea
Genmaicha or brown rice tea is another staple in every Asian household. If you are not a fan of the more traditional green tea, then you would appreciate the nutty flavour of brown rice tea much more.
Many people in Asia drink brown rice tea due to how effective it is in reducing the risk of cancer. Additionally, brown rice tea is very rich in selenium. Selenium is an important nutrient that helps regulate hormones and improves metabolism. If you’re someone who wants a low effort routine to help regulate your health, then give brown rice tea a try!
