5 Tea’s and Benefits Every Yogi Should Love

5 Tea’s and Benefits Every Yogi Should Love

I probably could of considered writing this in the winter, when we get cozy with tea, baths, and sitting by a hot fire sound amazing. But, instead I am writing this in the summer when I prefer my tea iced. Who know’s maybe you’ll find this next fall and it’ll be what you need.

Okay, I’ll stop my ramble there.

It seems to be kind of a cliche thing for a yogi to love tea. Not sure why, but I’m going to slip right into the stereotype today…lets have a tea party!

I used to be a coffee all day everyday kinda woman, but one day I got bored with the triple shot espresso and decided to drink tea. I got a little obsessed and began to really love the magic of heating up hot water. Carefully concocting the perfect cup with love in every sip.

The beautiful thing about this, is later I discovered how many amazing health benefits can come from those loose leafs in a bag. I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you today!

RASPBERRY LEAF:

The tea invented for woman’s health. This tea is amazing for that time of month when your uterus feels like it’s tieing itself in knots. It helps soothe the cramps and bloating. It helps inflammation and is packed with some amazing vitamins, including magnesium which is really great! It also helps your skin glow and so many others!

HIBISCUS:

Mmm, this tea is pink and taste sweet, a little tart, and delicious. It is great for the heart, blood, inflammation, improves digestion, and is said to help in loosing weight. This one is another one good one for woman! It’s a very uplifting tea and is perfect for the morning hot or iced.

ECHINACEA:

This is the ultimate immune fighter! It has so many benefits from cold, flu, cancer, and inflammation. It has your back. It is really delicious with a little local honey to help with allergies and more immune boosting. It’s a relaxing and soothing tea that can help you unwind from a stressful day.

LICORICE:

My favorite use for this type of tea is how soothing it is when you have an itchy or sore throat. It taste so so yummy and has lasting effects. It is said to be another soothing tea to help lift your spirits and feel good. It is said to be good for your blood and of course inflammation.

GREEN:

Green tea is the perfect pick me up in the middle of the day. It has some caffeine to help you wake up and get going. You might know green tea to be known for helping weight loss, it seems to be a popular benefit. But it is also great for your skin, immune system, and feeling uplifted. I love replacing coffee with some green tea.
