The 5 healthiest types of tea!

1. Matcha

Matcha is powdered green tea that is known for its incredibly intense green color and its diverse beneficial effects. Its preparation is rather complex, but the taste experience is all the more intense! It contains an enormous amount of secondary plant substances (catechins) as well as vitamins A, E, K and the B vitamins B1, B2 and B3! In addition, its chlorophyll content is very high! Matcha also contains minerals such as iron, potassium and calcium! Matcha is extremely invigorating and rejuvenating! You can not only enjoy it pure as a tea, but also process it wonderfully in numerous other recipes!

2. Oolong

Oolong tea comes from China and is still an insider tip here. Its leaves are not exposed to oxidation for as long as black tea, for example, and thus create a unique aroma. It can be infused several times, each infusion having a characteristic taste. Oolong is a caffeinated tea that, in addition to its stimulating effect, has numerous other healing properties. Among other things, it stimulates the metabolism and thus supports weight loss. It is also rich in secondary plant substances, so-called polyphenols, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and strengthen the immune system. Oolong is also good for blood vessels, skin and teeth

3. White tea

White tea consists of the leaf buds of the camellia plant, the tea plant that is also used for black and green tea. However, white tea is picked and dried particularly gently so that there is almost no fermentation process. This creates its extremely mild and gentle taste. Similar to Oolong tea, it also has a high content of polyphenols. These in turn act as a powerful antioxidant and contribute enormously to the health-promoting effects of white tea. It strengthens the immune system, has anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating effects. In addition, it has less caffeine than black or green tea and is therefore well suited for gentle stimulation!

4. Bancha tea

Bancha tea is a special type of Japanese green tea that contains less caffeine compared to other varieties. It has an extremely high proportion of iron - around 38 milligrams per 100 grams - and other trace elements and minerals! The consumption of Bancha tea has a positive effect on the digestive system and supports the body in deacidification.

5. Pu-erh tea

Pu-erh tea is another Chinese tea from the camellia plant, which is still quite unknown in this country. Similar to a good wine, it must first go through a maturation process before it can develop its full taste. This can be described as earthy and intense, as its caffeine content is also considerable. Similar to Oolong tea, Pu-Erh can be infused several times and thus has different taste levels. Pu-Erh has a positive effect on health by supporting fat burning and lowering cholesterol levels. Since it is a very strong tea, excessive consumption is often discouraged.
