The best teas of the world. Top 5 Teas to drink for health and happiness
Tea has been around for centuries, but only in recent times has it come to the fore as a popular drink. It’s now being enjoyed almost anywhere and on most occasions. The number of tea shops is increasing all the time, which means you can find a delicious cup of tea almost anywhere you go.
The health benefits of drinking tea are well-documented; it contains many antioxidants (natural substances that protect your body from free radicals) and has been cited as an important part of a healthy diet. What better way to consume them than with teas like Darjeeling and Assam?
A good cup of tea will certainly have many health benefits, not just from the antioxidants but also from the other medicinal properties that are present in different varieties of tea.
However, it’s important to note that drinking too much caffeine might have some negative effects on your health. While there are many types of tea, black or green tea is considered to be one of the best because it contains more antioxidants than other teas.
Healthier Tea Options
Tea is one of the world’s most popular beverages, consumed by an estimated 3 billion people every day. It has many health benefits and can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways — as a hot or iced beverage, as a digestive aid, or as an herbal tea.

Tea is a very personal thing. You may be a tea drinker or you may not. You may like it to go with the food you eat, or you might not care at all and just drink it everyday. What’s your preference? There are many different styles of tea out there, each with its own personality and appeal.
Whether you like black or green teas, oolongs or pu’erh, and even which tea types to drink at certain times of the day, there are many different ways to approach this topic. Here are some of my favorite ones:
1) Black Tea – Black tea is a strong brew, so if you don’t like strong tea then you should probably stay away from it! However, if you do enjoy something really strong then black teas can be a good choice for an afternoon pick-me-up! To make sure that your black tea remains as strong as possible all day long I recommend that you steep it in boiling water 1 minute at a time until the water has cooled down to 195°F (90°C).
2) Green Tea – Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages in existence! In fact it was the first beverage ever recorded in history! Since green tea tends to have lower amounts of caffeine than other types of teas (it doesn’t contain any caffeine at all), I think it’s best to avoid drinking green teas on an empty stomach when trying to avoid “crashing.” If however, your stomach is empty then go ahead and give them a try!
3) Oolongs – Oolong is another type of flavorful black tea that comes from specific regions in China. Interestingly enough oolongs have lower levels of caffeine than other varieties of black teas because they tend not use roasted coffee beans for flavouring their leaves. They instead use unroasted beans which contain smaller amounts more caffeine than roasted coffee beans do but still allow for sweet flavors to be added into their leaves. So whether your preference is for sweet or savory flavors I recommend that you brew your oolong leaves with either steamed milk or sugarless iced cocoa powder (even though they taste great either way!). The best part about brewing your oolongs with sugarless iced cocoa powder is that they don’t add any calories into your diet nor do they increase the amount of sugar in your systems’ bloodstreams when consuming them.
5 teas of all times
The 5 best teas of all time are, in no particular order:
- Lemongrass Tea (but you already know about this)
- Camellia Sinensis Oolong (This has become quite popular recently, and I want to drink this for as long as I can)
- Green Tea
- Darjeeling (grown in India)
- Mint Tea (herbal)
Each has its own virtues and each is different. But they all work well in the same way: they calm the mind and concentrate the mind. And it helps that they are all delicious. They will also help you stay focused throughout your day. They will also keep you alert. So try them out — they might be your new best friends!
