Darjeeling is a very versatile tea. Grown in the Darjeeling region of Bengal, India, Darjeeling leaves can make black, white, green, and oolong tea. Not only is it versatile in its use, but it is also a versatile tea in terms of the plethora of health benefits it offers. Here are a few reasons why you should look at buying Darjeeling tea in Australia.
1. FIGHTS BAD BREATH AND ORAL BACTERIA
Darjeeling’s green tea has been known to prevent bacteria that cause tooth decay and strep throat by inhibiting their growth. Darjeeling’s black tea extract has been proven to prevent plaque and prevent acids that result in tooth decay. Both types of tea have subsequently been known to cure bad breath. So, if you’re looking for a fresher substitute to the morning coffee, perhaps buy some Darjeeling tea online at Pyramid Tea Co.
2. PREVENTS HEART DISEASE
Studies have indicated that people who drink Darjeeling tea daily have a lower risk of heart disease. It’s believed that the tea inhibits the absorption of harmful cholesterol and stabilises our sugar levels. Particular strains that are very high in antioxidants such as quercetin, like Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling tea are especially beneficial when it comes to preventing heart disease. It reduces the build-up of plaque blocking arteries, thereby mitigating the risk of stroke.
3. GREAT FOR YOUR SKIN
Drinking Darjeeling tea is fantastic for your skin, as all the rich antioxidants work to keep you looking fresh and young by battling premature aging brought on by stress. Therefore, Darjeeling tea will also lower your stress levels and promote relaxation.
