But did you know that drinking tea is not only pleasant and delicious but also offers a myriad of health benefits? Foster an atmosphere of health and productivity by offering a variety of herbal teas packed with health benefits.

W​hat is Herbal Tea?

T​ea, in its true form, is brewed from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. These teas include green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea. True tea has its own set of health benefits. Let’s delve into another world of tea — herbal teas.

Herbal teas are derived from dried spices, herbs, flowers, or fruits. Each herbal tea has its own unique set of health benefits. The polyphenols found in herbal teas make them rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants work for your body, providing health benefits.

The compounds in herbal teas, along with their aroma and taste, can offer a boost of well-being, energy, and alertness. This adds to productivity in the workplace. The benefits you get from herbal teas depend on the individual properties of the tea you drink.

A​ Gentle Way to Start Your Morning

G​inger tea adds warmth to your morning routine with a bit of bite to get you going on whatever tasks lie ahead. We all know ginger as a go-to for nausea relief. But instead of reaching for a sugary ginger ale that can cause an energy crash hours later, you can sip on a hot cup of ginger-tea for the same nausea alleviating benefit without the sugar.

Recent studies have also shown that ginger has a positive effect on gastrointestinal health and is a powerful tool in reducing inflammation. In fact, in some cases, ginger is as effective as ibuprofen in reducing inflammation and relieving pain.

Rebooting your Afternoon

We’re all familiar with the afternoon slump. You make it to midday and your work seems a bit more daunting. Reawaken your senses and refocus with peppermint tea.

Peppermint tea can increase alertness, ward off fatigue, enhance breathing, reduce anxiety, and improve memory. Peppermint tea eases indigestion, making it an ideal go to for after lunch.

Setting the Stage for a Calm Evening
