Recommended Buying Guides
From oolong tea to black currant tea, you can find dozens of types of teas to suit your taste buds. Tea has been enjoyed by cultures all over the world for thousands of years, and depending on where you are, it is served hot or on ice. Some tea drinkers prefer sweetener in their tea. Whether it's sugar, Splenda, honey, or agave nectar, a little bit of one of these in your tea can curb your sweet tooth. In addition to tasting good, drinking different teas has been proven to have a myriad of health benefits. A cup of peppermint tea can settle an upset stomach. Some black teas have as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. Green tea is chocked full of antioxidants. Manufacturers and artists design teapots of all shapes, colors, and sizes to give you a variety of styles. Find one to match your home and decor. Many models have corresponding teacups and cream and sugar bowls. If you're looking for an alternative way to brew a single cup, consider a tea infuser or tea strainer. Tea is often sold in one of two packaging: loose and tea bags. Loose tea refers to any type of tea that requires an infuser to steep. Tea bags, on the other hand, are prepackaged, disposable servings, measured perfectly for your convenience. If caffeine, or lack there of, is an issue for you, make sure you read the label so see if the tea is caffeinated or decaffeinated. If you can't decide on one type of tea you're in the mood for, there are plenty of assorted collections available.
