It's time to talk tea...
So as you are probably aware there are many different types of teas and most of them benefit your body in some way or another.
Did you know that Green tea was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health and regulate body temperature, pretty cool huh.
Peppermint Tea was a popular "folk medicine" simply because it was reported to work so quickly and effectively in relieving a variety of disorders like headaches, sinus problems, upset tummy and menstrual cramps. I always make sure I have a packet in the kitchen pantry.
When ever i have an exam or performance coming up I usually am pretty stressed and have trouble sleeping so out comes the Camomile Tea as it has a mild sedative effects, is treasured for its ability to relieve insomnia and encourage a good night's sleep, free of nightmares. If you've been having sleepless or restless nights, a hot cup of camomile tea before bedtime may be just what you need to sleep soundly through the night. Chamomile tea can help to ease anxiety and depression, too!
Cough Cough... feeling a twitch and a tingle in your through Lemon and Ginger Tea please! as dancers we don't have time to get sick, so whenever I feel a little under the weather i just whip out the lemon and ginger (I usually add a teaspoon of honey too) and carry on with my grande jete's.
Happy brewing!! ;)
