As most people know, tea is good for your health, especially when you drink it regularly. The key to reaping good health benefits from tea is to master the best time, and the right tea to drink to produce the best effects. So, what are the best teas to drink tea during the day?

Morning

Drinking red tea in the morning is best because red tea promotes blood circulation. Every day after eating breakfast, it’s a good idea to drink a cup of red tea with or without milk. It should be noted that tea should be drunk after eating breakfast. Tea leaves contain caffeine, which can be excessively absorbed into the stomach if it is empty. This can result in heart palpitation, frequent urination, and other abnormal symptoms.

Afternoon

In the afternoon, one should drink tea around 3 p.m. This is because at this time, it can play a role in adjusting the body’s system. It can also help to ward off chilliness in the winter. This is the best time of the day to drink the kind of tea that is commonly known as afternoon tea.

Drink green tea in the afternoon. Polyphenols are abundant in green tea, which have anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effects on the body. The tea leaves are also rich in Vitamin E, which has an anti-aging effect. Green tea, such as tieguanyin, is dry and cooling, which helps to filter out toxins in the liver while helping to relive urinary infections.

Evening

The right time to drink tea in the evening is around 8:30 p.m. Many people have the wrong impression about drinking tea in the evening. They worry that it may affect their sleep. In fact, this is the most active time of the human immune system. Drinking tea at this time can repair the body, as well as restore the immune system.

Do not drink green tea at night because it is not a fermented tea. It can stimulate the body to a certain extent. Black tea is recommended, especially the ripe Pu’er. This kind of tea is soothing and will not affect your sleep. Drinking tea after dinner can also help to prevent the accumulation of body fats, as well as soothe the stomach and aid your digestion.

When drinking tea, you should respect every type of tea. It is like the affinity for people; irrespective of whether high or low in rank, rich or poor, you can always find something that you appreciate from each of them.

To know which types of tea to drink requires the knowledge of tea dialogue. It is just like getting to know a friend; after learning about their experiences, you will understand and get along with them better.
