There is a saying “A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” but wouldn’t it be great if we could spice up our day even more with a cup of tea? While too much coffee can dehydrate your skin, why don’t boost up your energy, increase your focus and relax with tea instead? Here we present you a selection of teas for all times of your day!
Start your day with a refreshing and energizing cup of tea! The perfect tea to have with your breakfast and get you going are teas with citrusy and fruity aromas like English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Darjeeling. These black teas will also give you a boost of energy for a head start. If you are having a Chinese style breakfast, pair them with light and refreshing and teas like Bi Luo Chun (碧螺春), Long Jing (龙井) and Mao Jian(毛尖) green teas.
Feeling sleepy after a heavy lunch? Combat your post-lunch sleepiness and boost your digestion with a cup of tea. Full-bodied tea with a hint of spice like Assam and Chai would be ideal. You could also relieve indigestion and sooth your stomach with a refreshing mint tea. To lower your cholesterol and flush out toxins, try Pu er tea(普洱). But if you want to opt for a more aromatic option, try out Tie Guan Yin (铁观音) or Jasmine Oolong (茉莉花乌龙) tea to wash down your lunch.
It’s time to wind down after a day of hard work! Enjoy your evening by relaxing with a warm bath and a good book. A good tea to calm you down would be non-caffeinated herbal teas like chamomile and rooibos. Floral teas like hibiscus or chrysanthemum tea are also a good choice. Feeling a bit full after dinner? Try white teas with floral scents like Bai Mu Dan (白牡丹) to aid your digestion but with a low enough caffeine level to let you sleep.
Is it that time of the month? Try to avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol, instead eat more green leafy vegetables and lean meat. To relieve discomfort, try out a time-tested recipe with a brew of ginger, goji berry, and red dates to replenish your energy and improve blood circulation.
