No matter what kind you drink you’re making efforts to improve your health and just plain feel better. Whether it’s for preventing a cold, improving heart health or just helping you relax (and reducing stress) you can’t go wrong with a cup of tea.

I’m a huge green tea drinker and you can probably set your clock to my 3:30 PM green tea break which helps me refocus for the afternoon. I never miss it! Among other benefits, it gives me a bit of a caffeine boost to help me crush the rest of the afternoon. It’s also a much better mid day option instead of coffee because it has less caffeine and won’t keep you up at night.

Teas have historically been used because of their disease fighting properties. Here are some of the benefits of a few of the most popular teas:
