We’re not always up to the mark when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Even when we think we’re getting it all right, there’s something we miss out on, or we take our own little “holidays” from our routines, and we’re back to square one. What if there was something that we could do, something simple, to take care of this. After all, they do say that good health has a lot to do with what we digest.

The answer to all of this is quite simple – a cup of tea. Not just any cup of tea, but a cup of earl grey tea. Sounds like bogus, but maybe just give this mildly citrusy beverage a chance, and you’d know what we’re talking about.

Here are some of the goodies you’re going to get from this tea that you’d never have guessed.

1. Better Teeth

Ah! That woke you up, didn’t it? Who wouldn’t want a pretty set of pearls? If you’re someone who eats a lot of chocolates, then pay heed to this: tea contains fluoride, an ingredient your toothpaste contains, which fights cavities and spares you that dreaded visit to the dentist. Also, it contains catechin, an ingredient that keeps away oral infections. Keep in mind that taking care of oral infection is one half of getting rid of bad breath.

Quite a bit for just one cup of tea a day, right.

2. Stress Buster

Stress is the worst and we’re all undergoing it. The result of it doesn’t just take a toll on our mental health, but also our physical self, especially our skin. Earl Grey, as you might know, contains bergamot that has aromatherapy-like qualities and has a calming effect on people who use it. Keeping calm and stress-free is a good way to keep those lines and tired eyes at bay, simply because you sleep better and are happier. It also has an effect similar to that of coffee. So, if you’re not so much into coffee, you’ve got the perfect alternative in Earl Grey.

3. Stay Hydrated (No, we’re not talking about just water)

Tea contains potassium, a very important mineral and electrolyte that helps keep our bodily fluids balanced. There’s no need to give you too many details of the benefits of a well-hydrated body. It’s just the best thing you can do for yourself. It keeps you feeling light and can make losing weight easier, especially with the citrus content (bergamot) present in Earl Grey.

Apart from all the tempting health benefits, Earl Grey is most known for its unique flavour and is among the flavours of tea that goes very well with a dash of milk. Just give it a try and see where it takes you. Oh, and, you’re welcome!
