Let’s agree there’s no dearth of chai or chai lovers across the world. There has to be a reason why there’s a whole day dedicated to just tea! Being one of the most popular beverages around the globe, tea enjoys an extremely loyal fanbase. And each tea-lover has their favourite tea and their way of brewing one. While some can’t have it without milk, some love it authentic without milk, and some like to add a hint of spices such as cinnamon, clove and ginger for a healthy dose. Whatever may be your choice, tea is known to soothe, restore and refresh, and its health benefits are aplenty. 

With antioxidants, protein, polyphenols and minerals, tea helps in boosting the immune system and help us fight bacteria, viruses and damaged cells. And if you think that there’s just one variety of tea you can brew, you’ve mistaken.

 Here we have 3 types of tea you can try: 

1. White Tea 

Made from newly grown buds that are still white, white tea is known to block the formation of new fat cells besides promoting the body's breakdown. One of the least processed teas out there, it is, therefore, a richer source of antioxidants, perhaps more than green tea and thus is known to improve digestion, boost immunity, memory and heart health.


2. Pu-Erh Tea 

One of China’s best-kept secret for weight loss, Puerh tea (pronounced as poo-air), is cultivated from the same plant that supplies oolong, green and black tea. What makes it different is that it is fermented like oolong tea and then goes through another post-fermentation process. Post this, the leaves are sun-dried and aged in a high-humidity environment. This fermented tea is known for cleansing, reducing stress, weight loss, boosting metabolism and much more! 


3. Peppermint Tea 

Known to be one of the most effective ways of keeping cravings at bay, mint tea help burn calories. The scent of mint has been known as an appetite suppressant. All you need to do is boil a few mint leaves and steep them in water before drinking it up!
