Which Tea Flavor is Right for Your Health? (Infographic)

It is believed that tea leaves have been steeped in water and enjoyed as a hot beverage since as early as 1000 BC in China. Ever since, tea has stuck around as a fan favorite, largely due to the soothing experience of sipping a hot cup of tea, but also because of the unexpected health benefits that different types of tea offer. Read our tea guide to find out the individual benefits of green tea, oolong tea, and more! You may find that your tea of choice offers an unexpected benefit.

If youíre looking to prevent risk of stroke, Alzheimerís, and Parkinsonís, green tea may help to protect you while oolong tea may be able to help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. If your goal is to achieve weight loss, try drinking yerba mate tea, as it can quell hunger cravings and also may increase calories burned throughout the day.

One of the largest benefits of drinking tea, from an economical standpoint, is the ability to re-steep it multiple times. Some teas re-steep better than others. For quick reference: oolong, yerba mate, and white tea can be re-steeped up to 5 or 6 times each. Stay away from black tea if you plan to re-steep, as it does not retain flavor well. Be sure to refer to our guide when re-steeping tea to find out how many times you can do it, as tea is the gift that keeps on giving!
