What’s that one thing that keeps you hustling at your workplace? When the drowsiness takes over and won’t let you concentrate, just a cuppa of ‘Cutting Chai’ is enough to drive you for the rest of the day. But did you know there are several types of teas out there?
- WHITE TEA
Cherished by tea connoisseurs for its unparalleled natural sweetness, subtle taste and health benefits, White Tea perfectly justifies its name. Leaving a lingering flavor on your tastebuds, these are plucked and air-dried to retain its distinct nutrients. It is a light colored pure delicacy, which is the least processed of all teas.
2. GREEN TEA
Abundant in flavonoids and polyphenol, Green Teas are considered beneficial for health. One of the favorite teas amongst Asians, it is a nominally processed to keep the leaves from losing its green texture, natural aroma and rich flavor.
3. OOLONG TEA
Complex in taste and rigorous in production, Oolong tea (pronounced as Wu Long Tea) is often termed the ‘Champagne’ of teas. Retaining the best properties of green as well as black teas, these are semi-oxidized.
4. BLACK TEA
One of the most preferred teas in the world, Black Tea is known for its strong aroma and rich flavor. Moderate in caffeine, its total oxidation gives out flavonoids, that helps in uplifting your senses. One can have it in an iced tea form or with some milk and sugar.
5. HERBAL TEA
Comprising of pure herbs, fruits and flowers, Herbal Tea does not have any leaf from the Camellia plant family. Well known as tea ‘infusions’, they are preferred by many for their medicinal properties and for having zero caffeine.
6. ROOBIOS TEA
Popularly known as ‘Red Tea’, Rooibos teas are delicious herbal infusions that are available in an assortment of flavours. One can sip on this tea to thwart free radicals to protect your body from any damage and cancer-causing elements.
7. MATE TEA
A bold and flavorful wild shrub from Argentina, Mate Tea can put the coffee game to shame. It is a tea that tastes like coffee. Yes, you heard that right!
8. BLOOMING TEA
Known as flowering or artisan teas, ‘Blooming Teas’ literally blooms when steeped. Hand tied and sewed with finest green leaves by artists, it can make for a beautiful gift for your loved one.
So, if your work is taking a toll on you, just grab a cup of tea and get ready for another challenge!
