Which of these tea quotes is your favorite?

There are many different types of teas.

There is herbal, black, green, and white, just to name a few!

Herbal teas are the ones that people typically drink for their helping hand in the healing process.

Black tea is stronger than green and white tea because it is more oxidized, giving it a stronger flavor.

It is also good for those with diabetes and people trying to improve their heart health.

It does contribute to making kidney stones, though, so if you struggle with those, you will want to consume a different type of tea.

Green tea can help improve brain function and aid in burning fat.

It has a bit higher acidic content, though, so it can cause some digestive issues like constipation and acid reflux.

White tea is more minimally processed and a bit more delicate while also maintaining some of the same benefits as green tea.

The best type of tea for you really depends on what your body needs, but experts seem to agree that green tea is the way to go!
