There Are Many Types of Healthy Tea, but These Are the 4 Dietitians Love Most
Tea is the second most widely consumed drink in the world (the only one higher is water) and we know why. It is extraordinarily calming, deliciously addicting, and offers incredible health benefits. Tea also comes in endless shapes and flavors: Matcha is for those who love green with caffeine. Iced tea is the perfect sip for sultry summer days, a kombucha for probiotics, and when you can't hold back your bout of insomnia there's chamomile. But that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to teas - there are over 20,000 teas in the world, and more are being launched every day.
Taste is of course a personal preference. But when it comes to choosing a tea that you know is good for you, we turn to the pros. Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN, author of Eating in Color, gives us the four types of tea she recommends to her customers - and sips them.

Vahdam Turmeric Spiced Tea
Turmeric is a fantastic anti-inflammatory, but it can taste very bitter. This mix of Vahdam is wonderful because it combines turmeric with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and black pepper, which helps the absorption of curcumin (also known as the active ingredient in turmeric). "And I think it's great that the tea bags are individually wrapped, making them perfect for traveling," says Largeman-Roth. The brand also gives back 1 percent of its sales to raise the children of tea farmers.

Tea pigs licorice and mint tea
"I love the taste of licorice root, and these little biodegradable 'tea temples' from Teapigs are filled with a perfect combination of licorice root and mint," says Largeman-Roth. The tea is delicious and a wonderful sugar-free pick-me-up in the afternoon.
"When I just want a little caffeine in the early afternoon, I reach for this blend of white tea, hibiscus, rose petals, orange and mango from Teavana. It's a lovely pink tea that definitely lifts my spirits!"
Traditional medicine gas relief
"Whether it's a trip or a big meal, we can all get painful gasoline," says Largeman-Roth. This tea combines calming chamomile with peppermint (ideal for your stomach), caraway seeds, coriander and lemon balm. "They are all carminatives, which means that they help get rid of gas. Start with a sip as soon as you feel uncomfortable and soon you feel better."
