My favorite Teas

Good morning! Today I'm doing something a little different and talking to you about the types of tea that I drink! Most of you know I LOVE tea -- I drink it pretty much all day every day, so I thought I'd round up my six favorite teas for you (they all serve different purposes!)

1. Lipton Black Tea - Every day go-to tea
This is the tea that I drink every morning before I get to work. I have it with my breakfast/ on my commute. I usually use one tea bag and put either cream or milk in it. Just a great every day black tea, nothing fancy.

2. Yogi Tea Echinacea Immune Support - "I feel sick" tea
When I start to feel under the weather, I start to drink this tea. It's packed with all kinds of herbal goodness and always helps me feel like I'm getting the best of a cold before it gets the best of me. Plus it tastes really delicious and soothing.

3. Yogi Teas Throat Comfort - Sore throat tea
Sometimes you can't get the best of a bug and you end up in bed for a few days. This tea is perfect when you have a sore throat. It's got great flavor, it's calming and ultra soothing and will help pick you up when you're feeling really low.

4. Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Herbal Tea - "I can't sleep" tea
This tea is perfect for those nights when you just can't seem to fall asleep. I use two teabags and find that after one cup I am lulled into a very dreamy sleep. Having it with a spot of buttered toast doesn't hurt either :) This tea really makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over and seems to make your whole body know it's time for bed.

5. Smooth Move Chamomile Tea - "I can't poop" tea
Ok so we've all had those times where we just can't go to the bathroom. And let's be honest, it's not fun. There are lots of over the counter medicines to deal with constipation and you should always consult your doctor when figuring out what works for you and your body. When I can't go, this tea gets everything moving. I use one tea bag and steep for ONLY FIVE MINUTES (they recommend 10+ on the bag) and drink it before bed. By morning I'm able to go #2 and feel back to normal. I recommend the chamomile over the chocolate flavor -- I found the chocolate a little bit taxing on my intestines but the chamomile is very soothing and doesn't create a sense of urgency in the AM that the chocolate can (at least for me.)

6. Twinings Pure Peppermint Herbal Tea - Tummy ache and anxiety tea
Peppermint is really good for stomach aches in general, and this tea is very soothing. It can also be good if you're feeling anxious or just generally unsettled.

And that's it for my tea roundup! Do you like to drink tea? If so what teas do you drink? I'd love to know!
