Tea not only tastes good, it's also good for you. Many health care professionals agree that all types of tea, white, green, oolong and black, provide an array of unique health benefits. Just as there are a wide range of flavors of tea, there are also a wide variety of benefits specific to each tea. We've summarized the benefits you can expect from each tea type below, and recommend you consume a variety of teas to be able to reap the unique health benefits of each.
Oolong Tea has a reputation for being the best tea for weight loss. This is because it is chock full of the antioxidants with catechins and tea polyphenols that help boost metabolism and help block fat-building enzymes to promote a healthy weight.
Green tea, also filled with catechins, has several health benefits ranging from your heart to your bones. These antioxidants (such as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)) have been found to reduce chances of heart attack and certain types of cancer. Also, drinking green tea regularly can help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and keep bones strong to prevent arthritis.
