The flavors and benefits of spiced teas

As their name suggests, spiced teas contain ingredients such as ginger, cardamom or cloves. Rich in flavors, they come in many variations, to satisfy all palates ... Including the most demanding! Like all teas, these products also offer a number of health benefits: it would be a shame to deprive yourself of them!

What are the benefits of spiced teas?

Like flavored teas, spiced teas are made with green tea, black tea or even a blend of several different teas. Consuming them gives you the opportunity to benefit from all the advantages of tea, which is excellent for your health.

First of all, drinking tea helps to keep you better hydrated and ensures that you are getting enough water each day. It can also help you soothe hunger pangs that can lead to snacking, as well as help you digest after a big meal by preventing bloating.

If you also choose a spiced tea, you will benefit from the health benefits of spices, in addition to the virtues of tea. Ginger, for example, is a powerful antioxidant that also has anti-inflammatory properties. Cloves can help fight acne, dental pain, certain allergies, migraines, urinary tract infections, dandruff and scalp problems.

Don't hesitate to ask about the specific benefits of each spice, as they differ from one product to another. You can look for the spice teas that taste best to you, but also choose based on the benefits of each alternative.
