10 Terrific Teas Worth Trying

Updated on October 4, 2011
Source


Drinking tea is a very healthy and enjoyable practice. Packed full of powerful antioxidants, and containing less caffine than coffee, tea is a wonderful (and beneficial) beverage choice. Green tea can help increase metabolism levels, and choosing tea over diet soft drinks and fruit juices can even help you lose weight. Drinking tea is also said to help increase mental health (i.e., relieve stress, calm the mind) and decrease the risk of many ailments (i.e., heart disease, high blood pressure). Tea samplers also make great gift ideas!!!

Here are ten delicious tea flavors your tastebuds are sure to enjoy...

White Peach Wuyi Oolong Tea

Stash's White Peach Wuyi Oolong Tea is, by far, my favorite fruit tea on the market. With a subtle yet sweet hint of peach, this caffeinated tea is great for breakfast! Not to mention, Wuyi Oolong tea (a cross between green and black teas) is totally fun to say...woo-yee-oooh-long!!! LOL!

Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea

Celestial Seasonings' Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea is my favorite tea for bedtime because it's caffeine-free and smells divine! You won't need any sweetener for this tasty treat, as its flavor is just perfect by itself. Also, the chamomile's calming abilities will help your body relax after a hard day!

Bentley's Apple Cinnamon Tea

Indulge in the flavor of warm apple pie with a cup of Bentley's Apple Cinnamon Tea. This black tea gives off the delectable aroma of apples and each taste will remind you of a homemade slice of heaven! Yet if that sugar craving just won't subside, turn your tea into dessert! Add a swig of caramel and a dollop of whipped cream for tea-a-la-mode...yummerooski!!!

Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea

Have a taste of Hawaii with Hawaiian Islands Tea Company's Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea. This lovely green tea is flavored with hibiscus blossoms and soft honey-lemon undertones. Not too sweet, not too flowery- but 'jes right!!!

Cinnamon Plum Tea

Ashby's Cinnamon Plum Tea is a wonderful choice for a holiday feel. The black tea blend, flavored with ground cinnamon and plum, will tickle your tastebuds and warm your heart. Yet any visions of sugar-plums dancing in your head will count as daydreams (this product contains caffeine).

Purple Acai & Blueberry Tea

Lipton's Superfruit Purple Acai and Blueberry Green Tea has a nice fruity taste. Unlike most berry-flavored teas, this tea is mildly tart rather than overbearingly sour. And, at 22mg of caffeine per serving, it can help make your mornings berry delightful!


Constant Comment Tea

If you're looking for a caffeine-free tea with a spicy kick, Bigelow's Constant Comment is the perfect choice. This tea's blissful aroma is alluring, and its citrus zing and sweet spice seduces the palate with every sip. Foil wrappers keep each tea bag fresh with bold flavor.

Japanese Green Tea

The crisp, clean aroma of Yamamotoyama's authentic green tea reminds me of a fond childhood memory. My family often spent Saturday nights devouring ton katsu (pork cutlet) and rice at our local Japanese restaurant. Although the food was great, it was the endless cups of piping-hot tea that always kept me smiling!

Orange, Passion Fruit & Jasmine Tea

Lipton's Orange, Passion Fruit and Jasmine Green Tea brings an exotic twist to an old-time favorite. The tangy lilikoi (passion fruit) taste helps tone down the powerful citrus flavor, and the jasmine gives it a nice, fragrant quality.

Peppermint Tea

Santa wants peppermint tea with his cookies this year, so check out Celestial Seasonings' take on this classic flavor! With the sugary scent of candy canes and the smooth taste of peppermint, this caffeine-free tea is a hit with kids too! Soothing and joyful, mint teas are perfect all year round!!!

      Interesting to read about these different teas. Some of the names of the teas mentioned here are quite poetic. Taste wise I liked the sound of the cinnamon plum tea as I am fond of both flavours. Peppermint tea is one I like as I find it to refreshing drink.
