I’m not going to lie I was dreading this month. This year I decided to participate in #dryjanuary and I was (excuse me am) craving whisky. My friend told me drinking tea helped her wine cravings. She said the motion of slowly sipping her tea had a calming effect.
Fast forward I got an email to try Stash Tea. All signs were pointing towards this being a good idea. Also, January happens to be National Hot Tea Month. I’m not a huge tea drinker, but I will be now once I read of tea’s positive effects on the body. Check out some of these effects noted by the Tea Association of the USA:
- Studies show tea can counteract tiredness and can benefit work performance.
- Research also suggests drinking tea supports cardiovascular health.
- A new study found that black tea can reduce blood pressure in hypertensive individuals.
- Studies suggest tea flavonoids may help increase metabolism.
- Research has shown daily green tea consumption can reduce the risk of certain types of cancers.
- Tea is packed with antioxidants that help keep our bodies “young” and protect them from toxins.
- Tea has less caffeine than coffee. The types that do contain caffeine usually contain about 50% less than coffee.
- Research shows a correlation between tea and heart health. A recent study says people who drink tea have a 20% less chance of having a stroke or heart attack than those who don’t.
- Tea is an immune system booster. Studies show that tea helps immune cells reach their targets more quickly.
Now I know you’re probably wondering what makes Stash Tea so popular and special? Stash Tea was founded in 1972 by two hippies seeking a tea euphoria. Since then, Stash Tea’s mission has been to surprise and delight your taste buds with best-in-class ingredients and diverse flavors that brew bold and bright. There’s over 150 different teas to choose from. My favorites are: Ginger Fire Chai, Golden Turmeric Chai, Sunny Orange Ginger, and Breakfast in Paris.
