Black Tea: Pretty Perfect for Health AND Beauty.
Tea, glorious tea! Herbal tea, green tea or black tea, we love tea in all its forms and flavours. And how wonderful that the very thing that is our passion, is so incredibly healthy too.
Tea makes us happy, and not only for the taste, but for the long list of benefits shared in this post. Of course, enjoying it without additives like milk or sugar ensures you get even more health benefits out of this brew.
And yes, it also gives you a little lift. The relatively low amounts of caffeine in tea can help enhance blood flow to the brain… but without over-stimulating the heart!
Black tea is a brilliant antioxidant, due to its polyphenols, which help block DNA damage from the toxic chemicals we come in contact with daily. The phytochemicals may also give you stronger bones, leading to lower probability of developing arthritis. Studies show that the amino acid L-theanine found in black tea is not only helpful with relaxation, but also a great aid for concentration. The list goes on and on…
Both green and black tea are made from a shrub called Camellia Sinesis – they are made different with their processing methods. Black tea leaves are processed through being withered, rolled, fermented and heated!

3 Ways To Use Black Tea For Beauty
Black Tea for Weight management:
Black tea may have a full-bodied flavour, but it can help to make your own body lighter! Recent studies have found that black tea can aid with weight management by accelerating fat loss. This is due to its ability to alter healthy gut bacteria. Tannins have a therapeutic effect on gastric and intestinal illnesses and also help decrease digestive activity. It stimulates the metabolism, which is a real boost to the body both inside and out.
Black Tea for Hair
Black tea is a surprisingly fabulous hair cleanser, and brilliant if you are looking to combat shedding. It has natural properties that help to block the hormone DHT that is responsible for hair shedding. And not only does it work to keep hair firmly rooted to the scalp but it nourishes and strengthens your delicate strands.
Get the best out of it by brewing up a strong pot, and keeping it in a little spray dispenser. Spray it into your hair to cleanse your scalp AND make your hair lustrous at the same time.
Black Tea for Skin
What a tasty way to combat skin infections and blemishes. Drinking this delicious drink helps delay ageing and reduce puffiness, as the polyphenols and tannins boost cell rejuvenation.
