Let Tea keep you warm this winter
With the snow storms finally here, everyone wants to bundle up and drink some hot chocolate. However, if you're trying to watch your figure, hot sugar probably isn't an ideal beverage.
Coffee is a good alternative, but if you have a sweet tooth, chances are you add just as much if not more sugar to your morning brew. Most people don't like the bitter taste of drinking it black either.
This is where tea, your new favorite hot beverage, comes in. Warm and soothing, tea provides you with an excellent alternative to sugar and fatty beverages. Here are some teas you should take a look at the next time you go to the grocery store.
1. Black Tea
This is a great alternative if you're a caffeine junkie. Although it won't give you the same wired and jittery feeling, black tea will provide you with a smooth burst of energy and plenty of minerals and antioxidants to boot. If you prefer something a little sweeter, try adding some honey instead of sugar.
2. Green tea
Although it tastes a little plaine by itself, if you add a squeeze of lemon to this beverage, you'll have a satisfying and zesty addition to your morning. Not to mention the improved brain function and reduced risk of cancer that this tea provides you.
3. Jasmine tea
This is an extremely popular tea across the globe. Renown for its sweet fragrance and taste, jasmine tea is an anytime tea that you can feel good about.
Whatever tea you choose, rest assured that the soothing warmth is filled with vitamins and minerals. Your body will thank you for making such a brilliant decision.
