If you love hot beverages, you’re going to love drinking tea. There are so many varieties to choose from and you can add natural sweeteners and even creamer to your drink to customize it like you want. Carrying your favorite tea and a triple insulated bottle with you wherever you go ensures that you have access to your favorite beverage even when you aren’t home.
Here are three teas you need to keep a stash of at home and work:
1. Black Tea. Packed with antioxidants that help lower cholesterol levels, black tea is one variety you can sweeten with natural sweeteners. You’ll also get a jolt of caffeine so skip the coffee and shoot for theaflavins and thearubigins instead.
2. Green Tea. Among the most popular varieties of tea available, it is packed full of catechins which can ward off diseases such as cancer and heart disease. It has a delicate flavor and can be consumed regularly to reduce the risk of cardiovascular issues.
3. Oolong Tea. A great tea for dieting, it helps aid weight loss because it contains an enzyme that helps dissolve triglycerides. One study showed that women that drank the tea instead of plain water burned more calories over a period of two hours.
