Similar to my love for (or addiction to) coffee is my obsession for tea. A hot cup of tea, matched with some lemon and honey really hits the spot!

Drinking tea regularly bolsters immune defenses, lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer, increases metabolism, and lowers blood pressure. Many of the vitamins and antioxidants we look for in foods and supplement pills can be found in teas. Tea can also give you that pick-me-up in the morning as a better alternative to coffee and energy drinks. Here are a few teas you can start drinking to sustain a healthier you!
