Many people learn of the many amazing and great health benefits of drinking tea and quickly go out and buy as many bags or containers of tea as possible. This will tell you why this is not a good idea for newbies in the tea drinking world.
Finding good qualities of tea is an art. If you just go to a regular supermarket and buy the cheapest, most packaged type of tea you'll most definitely end up with a very poor quality of tea. Not just poor in quality from taste but also as far as health benefits are.
You see, the reason studies have showed that tea is healthy is because the tea they tested with was natural, unprocessed, and filled with antioxidants! If they had done studies with teas from popular brands like Nestle, they would definitely have seen different results.
Brands like these basically create products marketed as natural but truly heavily processed and filled with additives, sweeteners, etc. All this destroys the benefits that tea would have and replaces them with actual health destroyers!
If you want to receive the health benefits of tea, be sure to learn how to find healthy teas. Yes, you can opt for organic as a solution. However, this isn't the only way. There are many tips for finding high quality types of teas.
In general, I recommend only opting for the loose leaf type of teas as these tend to be less processed and more natural. The teas that are "instant" are generally the worst as they are heavily processed and require certain processing methods for the tea to last longer, since it has been processed so thoroughly.
