This is a must for all! Green tea helps boost your metabolism - the process of turning food into energy – where as a slow metabolism will allow you to put on extra weight. Have a cup of Green Tea before exercising and the caffeine will help you to work out for longer, producing better results.

White tea retains antioxidants and also has anti – aging properties, this helps the skin looking healthy. White tea also has antibacterial properties to help you fight illness!
Peppermint tea works well after exercise as it is a very calming tea and settles the stomach. Many people with irritable bowel syndrome take this tea for medicinal purposes and it is a great tea for general digestive health. Our peppermint black is a combination of peppermint and black tea and is therefore uplifting and soothing, helping to settle the stomach while giving you a little boost.
Fruit and Herbal Tea

Camomile tea also comes under this category, known to calm the nervous system and soothe skin irritations such as ezema and acne. With this tea you’ll be in for a peaceful night’s sleep.
If you just want a ‘normal brew’ don’t worry, research has shown that black tea is also good for you!
