As I sit here nursing myself back to health from strep throat, nothing could be better than cup after cup of hot tea that I am enjoying from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Beyond being sick, there are so many health benefits of drinking tea from reducing your risk of cancer and heart disease to improving dental health and weight loss. All this from a simple cup of tea prepared quickly in your Keurig. Truth be told, I enjoy a hot cup or iced tea year-round simply for the flavors!
I received product to facilitate this post.
In under a minute and a touch of a button, you too could be enjoying tea time with K-cups from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. How does a hot cup of fresh brewed Green Tea, English Breakfast Tea, or Earl Grey sound? I’m hooked on them all! I was able to review the Bigelow English Breakfast Tea and Celestial Seasonings Green Tea this month to my delight.
As I said, I have strep throat. Drinking hot tea this week has really helped soothe my sore throat so it was perfect timing!
Bigelow English Breakfast Tea
Breakfast Tea is a black tea and is actually the 2nd most consumed beverage on the planet, second to water! Black tea offers many health benefits. It may lower your risk for diabetes, high cholesterol, kidney stones, and Parkinson’s disease. It could even possibly protect you from osteoporosis and lung cancer!
I like to get my morning started with a rich, smooth cup of Bigelow English Breakfast Tea. In the early morning, every little convenience helps – like pressing just one button for a fresh brewed cup of tea in my Keurig. Oh, I should thank the inventor!
I started drinking breakfast tea a few years ago. It is a darker, more robust tea. It is a full-bodied tea that also offers a pick-me-up in the morning as it contains caffeine.
Celestial Seasonings Green Tea
Green Tea is my absolute favorite kind of tea. I started drinking it as a young adult and have been hooked since.
Green tea actually offers the most antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols than all other teas because it is made from un-oxidized leaves and is the least processed. It has less caffeine than English Breakfast Tea by about 1/4th. Green Tea is known for helpful polyphenols that act as an anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic. This is good in helping preventing cancer, heart disease, and even Type 2 diabetes.
Now you can enjoy the great blends that Green Mountain Coffee Roasters tea has to offer while enjoying the health benefits mentioned above as well as all the antioxidants that can actually help slow down the aging process as it helps your cells to regenerate and repair themselves. That is something worth raising your cup to!
