What better way to kick start the year than trying out some new teas to accompany common new year’s goals? Here are three teas that can kick start your 2020 tea collection and fit your lifestyle.
It is an overall health boost your goal for 2020? Oolong teas have that ability when drank daily to improve your overall health. Oolong tea has a high antioxidant level that we’ve talked about before which helps fight off free radicals. The tea can also boost your metabolism helping with weight loss, promotes strong hair and bones, mental alertness and stabilizes blood sugar (making it a good tea for those with type 2 diabetes). Sprinkle in the goji berries and we’ve got boosted benefits because of their antioxidants! (Check out the full blog on Oolong Tea)
Cutting down on coffee this year but want to stay alert and focused on your work/studies or workouts? Yerba Mate is a South American herb that gives you that energy burst you need in order to get through your long days of work or studying. Mate has more caffeine than your average tea but less than coffee to prevent those jitters and crashing, this also gives it the ability to aid in mental focus. Yerba mate can also be used as a great pre-workout giving you the energy for the workout and improving muscle function during workouts which increases muscle and helps weight loss.
For added flavor check out teas such as Wake Me Up Before You Go and Energizer Factor that have Yerba Mate in it.
