Beauty Benefits of Tea- Featuring the Cheshire Tea Company.

My love of tea may seem crazy to some people, but tea really is an incredible thing. Not only can it be absolutely delicious if you are drinking good quality tea, it is also full to the brim with health and beauty benefits that make you look good and feel good. The three tea choices I am highlighting today are all incredibly tasty, full of lovely health and beauty benefits and come from none other than the wonderful Cheshire Tea Company. This post is not sponsored; I just really love this tea company and think everyone needs it in their life!

I first discovered the award winning Cheshire Tea Company at a Christmas Market in 2014. It was then that I fell in love with their mint chocolate rooibos tea which tastes absolutely incredible. As I do not live nearby any stockists, I have to order my tea online from their website but the service is excellent and super speedy! When I actually read the ingredients of all of the tea, I was very pleased to see that not only were they top quality, but they were packed full of positive benefits.

Mint Chocolate Rooibos Tea

This tea is made from luxury rooibos, organic peppermint, calendula petals, cacao bean pieces and natural flavours. This tea tastes exactly like mint chocolate and despite its decadent, dessert like flavour, it is actually full of health benefits, which is so hard to believe when you are drinking it as it tastes more like a naughty treat rather than a healthy drink.

Rooibos tea is naturally high in minerals including manganese, calcium and fluoride which promote healthy bones and teeth. Drinking rooibos tea may help prevent common health conditions including joint pain and arthritis. Not only that, but beauty lovers can rejoice as rooibos is also high in zinc and alpha hydroxy acid.. Both of these nutrients are great for the skin and may help alleviate problems including acne, sunburn and uneven skin. Alpha-hydroxy acids are also found in many upscale cosmetic products because it helps reduce the signs of aging including wrinkles. It’s a common ingredient in chemical peels believe it or not! So why go through the trouble of a chemical peal when you can get that illuminating glow from the inside?  Also, peppermint is very well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, working miracles for bloating and IBS sufferers. It also helps to relieve stress, so this tea is an all round win!

Cherry Sencha Green Tea

When I first tried this tea, I could not believe I had managed to live without it. Dramatic I know, but you will understand once you taste this wonderful drink. This tea is is made from luxury green sencha tea, rose petals and natural flavours. See, it even sounds beautiful (It smells like heaven also). Everything about this drink is simply divine and of all the teas, it definitely has the best benefits.

Green tea is being recognised more and more for its health benefits and its popularity is every increasing. I’ll admit, plain green tea is not my thing. It just kind of tastes like grass in my opinion and I really do not want to drink grass. This tea, however, has a delicate and sweet cherry taste with a little hint of green tea peaking through. Do not be intimidated if you do not like the taste of green tea, this is incredible. Green tea is full of powerful anti-oxidants, fat fighting and cancer fighting properties. There is a reason why green-tea is shoved into health and beauty products alike. Its no joke. My skin and metabolism has honestly improved since drinking herbal tea, particularly green tea. I thought it was all a myth, but it is scientifically proven and it really works. Another thing I like about this tea is that it gives me a lovely energy boost. Unlike coffee, i do not get those horrible jitters and racing heart. There is nothing worse than when you try to caffeinated yourself for energy but you still feel sluggish and tired, but with a quicker heart rate. This tea gives you a great but gentle boost, you need it in your life!

Cream Earl Grey

Earl grey seems to be hit and miss with a lot of people, with many complaints about a strong, perfumery kind of taste. I personally love a good, strong cup of earl grey and lemon. As an English girl I feel like most of the water percentage in my body is made up of breakfast tea. However, this Earl Grey is special because it is really delicate, creamy and delicious with a slightly sweet taste. It is made from black tea, cornflower petals and natural flavour.

Even if you just like to stick to your normal PG tips, you might be surprised at the health and beauty benefits of black tea. Black tea contains alkylamine antigens that help boost our immune response. In addition to this, it also contains tannins that have the ability to fight viruses that protect us from influenza, stomach flu and other common viruses. Not directly a beauty benefit so to speak, but im more than happy to try and prevent having my nose glued to a tissue all day.

There is a reason why you feel happy and relieved when you drink tea. Black tea’s such as this gorgeous earl grey and your standard breakfast tea contain amino acid L-theanine, which helps you relax and concentrate better. Also, it helps decrease the stress hormone cortisol when consumed in moderate amounts on a regular basis. So get drinking my darlings!
