No. I’m not talking about the latest gossip in the streets. Although we are fascinated with other’s lives since they are much more fascinating than our own sometimes, I’m not referring to that kind of tea. We talked about this toxic behavior in a previous post. So, there is no need for us to start the path back to self-destruction. The tea I’m talking about is much more simple than you think. It’s just tea. Plain ol’ simple — tea. Why should you add tea to your health regimen?
Why I Started Drinking More Tea
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a coffee girl at heart. But I love cream and sugar in my coffee which are culprits that can pack on the pounds. So, I’ve limited my coffee intake over the years and started drinking more tea. Back in the day, I used to be a Lipton ice tea kind of gal. And occasionally, I still indulge in sweet tea because it’s GOOD. But again, that sugar content isn’t ideal, especially as I get up in age.
So, in recent years, I’ve started to drink more tea but not for pleasure. Most of the teas I consume these days are herbal teas, aimed at improving some aspect of my health and well-being.
One of my go-to teas is green tea. I drink it free of any sweetners. Since I’ve been drinking it, I feel so much better and I notice changes in my skin. Here’s one of my favorites.

Matcha teas aren’t a type of tea that you will likely enjoy upon first try. I admit, these teas have a very earthy taste to them that may turn many of you off. However, if you can get accustomed to the flavor, these teas are likely more potent than regular green teas. Here are some options available from my affiliate partner, Adagio Teas.

Herbal Teas For Well-Being
One of my other favorite teas are teas that address specific issues. When I want to relax, I’ll consume a tea with chamomile in it.
Another one of my favorites is dandelion tea which is helping with these dark circles around my eyes by helping to clean out my kidneys and liver. I don’t drink this one often, but when I do, it’s usually when I’m detoxing quarterly.

If I’m dealing with seasonal colds or allergies, another one of my favorites is echinacea. This is a good one to take to prevent the onslaught of respiratory illness or help fight it off once it sets in.

Also, to boost my immune system with a powerful punch of Vitamin C, I consume rose hip tea.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’ve been touting the importance of keeping your chakras balanced. You can balance your chakras by using crystals and gems. Or you can visit a reiki specialist to help bring balance to your chakras and your overall aura. But believe it or not, you can also balance your chakras with chakra herbal teas. My affiliate partner Adagio Teas offers chakra teas in loose leaf form. So you’ll have to make sure that you get a tea bag or ball to steep these teas in.
