Calling all tea lovers, this one's for you.

Drinking tea has been known to boost immune systems, decrease inflammation and provide beneficial health advantages. Personally, I never drink coffee, only tea. Being an avid tea drinker, (connoisseur), I can proudly say that I've tried a lot of teas.

Tea lovers can enjoy a wide variety of different flavors such as green to chamomile, early, gray, English breakfast, rose, hibiscus and many more.

There Are Hidden Benefits Of Drinking Tea

Certain teas are known for providing beneficial factors to our health. Green tea can be consumed for increased antioxidants, chamomile tea reduces stress and increases sleep while peppermint can aid in headache relief and upset stomach.

Have You Heard Of Bubble Tea?


Even those who aren't avid tea drinkers can appreciate the mystery behind bubble tea. Also known as boba milk tea, this started in the 1980's in Taiwan. It was then brought to the US in the 1990s.

Some claim that there is nothing like bubble tea. It consists of tea with a sweet taste paired with tapioca balls ( also known as pearls or boba) that are chewy.

Depending on the business and location, bubble tea can vary. The most popular tea combination includes black tea, milk with a sweetener and lastly, tapioca balls and served cold. It can be described as sweet or even creamy. Others can include green, strawberry, almond, thai and more.

These chewy tapioca balls can be ingested but chewed first before digesting. Boba is a slang word for the tapioca balls in bubble tea.
