For centuries, tea has been used in alternative medicine to cure everything from cancer to bad breath. Do you know some of tea’s hidden benefits? See why the right variety could be the answer to your health problems.

Mood: Sage Tea

Though sage is most commonly used in cooking, sage tea has been shown to boost alertness and mood, while decreasing anxiety. It also has flavanoids that reduce inflammation. To enhance the flavor, mix it with black tea, brew for 5-10 minutes and add a pinch of honey.

Skin: Wormwood Tea

The high levels of antioxidants and polyphenols found in wormwood can help relieve itching and irritation from contact dermatitis, a form of eczema. The fantastic flavor of the tea is enhanced the longer it brews. After brewing, drain the water and place the leaves directly on your face for 10 minutes to leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed.  

Allergies: Nettle Tea

The tea from this prickly plant helps to prevent hay fever and allergy attacks by blocking the histamines in your body. Nettle tea is dense, so brew it for 15-20 minutes. Make a larger pot during allergy season and keep in the fridge. Add lime to freshen taste.

Weight-Loss: Oolong Tea

Oolong tea boosts metabolism, helping you burn fat faster. Studies have shown that drinking oolong tea has led to sustained weight loss and a smaller waist size. Be careful not to drown your tea in sugar, which will negate the benefits.

Migraines: Ginger Tea

Ginger tea works as an anti-inflammatory agent. Ginger blocks prostagladins – the chemical messengers that cause a slight swelling in the brain. Drink ginger tea at the onset of your headache. This is when it’s most effective in blocking pain.

Libido: Ginseng Tea

This tea boosts sexual arousal and combats erectile dysfunction. Ginseng tea contains compounds called ginsenosides that affect gonadal tissue, increasing sperm count as well as sexual performance for both women and men.
