Sep 2, 2008
You will come across very few people who will not like to have a cup of hot tea in the morning. It refreshes the mind and gives you new energy to start the day with a bang. Now you can take tea at any part of the day whenever you feel dizzy or need some extra energy. The benefit of tea is not limited in reenergizing your mind. There are many more that a cup of tea has to offer you.

Tea is a great anti-oxidant which cleanses the system and keeps detoxified. There are herbal teas which have a slimming effect and can help you to loose weight easily. Now there are various types of tea available in the market. Some of them are mentioned here.

Green tea

When they pick up the tea leaves and dry and wither them, the chemical reaction that occurs is called oxidation. Green tea is that particular form of tea which is dried so quickly that it cannot go through any oxidation. The methods of drying green tea for storing safely include oven frying or quick drying. The sole reason behind this is to retain the most important catechins, polyphenols and flavonoids. The retention of these compounds makes the green tea healthier than the normal tea.

Black tea

Black tea is a particular form of tea which is dried in a slower process so that the tea leaves can get oxidized and this influences the quality and flavor of the tea. The tea becomes rich brown or black in color and the flavor becomes exceptionally good. This greatly depends on the skills of the tea grower. Many people prefer to drink this type of tea as it contains the real flavor for which tea is adored as a drink.

White tea

This might sound little strange but the white tea is formed from the buds which are picked up when they are still covered with the silky hair. These buds are dried hurriedly with the hot air to make the white tea. Now this white tea is one of the most costly and rare tea available worldwide. This contains a lot of antioxidants if compared to the other types of teas. In fact the white tea is now being used by the cosmetic manufacturing companies as they generate free radicals and this property is effective enough to be used in manufacturing anti wrinkle and anti aging creams.

Oolong tea

Oolong tea is something that leis in between the black and green tea. This tea is often blended with various herbs and plant extracts to create slimming tea.

There are many more like the flavored tea, Pu-erh tea etc. But the best part is that these are all collected from the same tree.
