Green Tea

Green tea is seen as one of the most healthy teas and can bring many benefits to your life. 
Green tea contains natural antioxidants that can help prevent damage to your cells as well as other benefits.
Tea has an abundance of polyphenols. These compounds help reduce inflammation and can supposedly have some benefits in helping to fight cancer.
Green tea can help reduce the creation of “free radicals”. Free radicals play a part in ageing as well as other diseases.
Not only does Green tea have physical health benefits - it may also help improve your brain function. This is due to the caffeine in green tea. Caffeine has been shown to improve mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory. Green tea also contains the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine has been shown to help with anxiety and increasing dopamine.
Green tea has shown promising signs of aiding with fat burning. There are studies pointing towards green tea increasing the number of calories burnt, as well as increasing fat oxidation compared to those taking a placebo. There are also some studies that do not show an increase in these figures - so it may only affect certain individuals this way or the studies were set up in ways that promoted different results.

Turmeric & Ginger

We’ve combined these two into one section as Turmeric and Ginger are commonly found in tea’s together - they just work so well together!
Inflammation is a common theme for the benefits of different teas. Playing a huge part in the development of many conditions and worsening symptoms in others inflammation is a very common issue. Luckily Ginger and Turmeric have been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties which can not only help protect against the development of these conditions but also reduce common pain.
Our immune system is extremely important to keeping you in top condition, and ginger and Turmeric can help support it. I’ve always loved a wee cup of ginger and turmeric tea when I've come down with a stinky cold.
Another benefit of Turmeric and Ginger tea is reducing nausea, helping with bloating and pretty much any digestive issues.

Like other teas with caffeine, Earl Grey can boost brain function and energy, though it may have lower levels of caffeine than coffee, it can still do the trick.
