Ayy it’s time to learn about different types of tea & what they can do for you!! WOOHOO
I’ve got a list of about ten (common) teas that you can fall back on when you need some help in life. & this shit can get confusing so now you’ll know what to reach for when you’re staring at 64 different teas…
- digestion!!!!!! YAY POOPING & NOT FEELING CRAMPY
- helps with anti-inflammatory needs
- bonus points if you use it with tumeric
- more digestion!!!!!! mint helps in the earlier stages, when your food is still in your belly & may be upsetting it
- refreshing as heck
- according to Starbucks- not a real tea (if anyone understand this pls help idgi)
- better article: what DOESNT green tea do?
- caffeine, aka energy, but not so much it’ll effect any anxiety or sleeping difficulties

- aids in fat burning (if you’re into that)

Passion Flower* (READ THE ASTERICK)
- anxietTy- extreme calming effects
- promotes relaxing & maybe sleep depending on how anxious you are (can make you groggy the next day)**
- gives you a calming effect (not as potent as Passion Flower)
- tastes delicious
This really only a surface read into the world of teas. There are a TON of other teas that can give you lots of great benefits. Being that there are so many, this may be a good place to start if you’re a bit lost.
* – be VERY careful with this tea!! It’s a powerful little herb, so it won’t do good things for everyone. Try a small amount at first to see how your mind accustoms itself to the calming effects. Do this by ‘diluting’ the tea- use more water than the brewing instructions call for & don’t let it steep as long.
