Drinking Tea: Overview
Drinking tea is a tradition as old as ancient China. For more than 5000 years, civilizations have been drinking tea and found different types and ways of taking it to obtain different benefits. Although there are different types of tea, such as herbal tea, black tea, white tea, and green tea, they all come in one way or another from plants. Whether they are herbs, spices, or fruits, everything that plants provide us with can be ingested in different ways, tea being a simple and tasty form.

Drink tea after breakfast and lunch helps you to have better digestion, and also provides you with more energy to start the day.

Choose the right tea for every occasion
We know that there are countless types of teas, however, when should we drink or try each of them? Just as tea provides us with health benefits, they also have properties that help on a little more specific occasions.
Let’s know more about the types of teas and their benefits:
Tea to drink after breakfast
Black teas are the best for drinking when you are starting your day. Some of them have a little caffeine that might help you to focus better during your morning tasks.
Tea to drink when feeling sick
If you are a little under the weather, drinking chamomile or mint tea will help you to relax and maybe get some sleep during the day.
Tea to drink when feeling stressed
When we drink tea, especially hot tea, it has an effect on our bodies that makes us relax. If you want to reduce your anxiety and slow down your usual routine for a moment, we recommend you drink herbal teas.
Tea to drink before sleeping
Drinking tea before sleeping is excellent to rest better and get that desired deep sleep, especially after a hectic day. The best ones for this task are herbal teas without caffeine.
Tea to drink and lose weight
During the process of doing exercise and eat healthy food, drink green tea and herbal teas (mint or chamomile, or ginger) might help you to lose weight.
This does not mean that you cannot drink your favorite tea whenever you want; however, we suggest you drink green or black tea daily. They are delicious and if you get used to drinking them after breakfast and lunch, you will notice that your energy levels will increase.
Now, to drink your favorite tea, during your meals, or in the middle of the afternoon, you will need a proper cup of tea. However, you should not only look for the cup of tea, because the saucer (a small plate) is also important. You know why? Let’s find out:
Why use a saucer when drinking tea?
Using a saucer with the teacup has a purpose that goes beyond just looking good together, which they do very well.
A saucer serves to support the cup because sometimes is easier to hold the saucer instead of the cup. Although we recommend you choose a cup with a comfortable handle, it could be annoying to have to hold it for too long. After sipping, you just need to place the cup on the saucer.
The saucer also protects surfaces, especially wood, cloth, and any other material prone to staining. Even your clothes will be safer from staining by having a saucer on hand. It does not only protect surfaces from stains as the drink can spill, but it also protects them from heat.
It is also useful to place the spoon used for stirring, especially if you like to stir your tea as you drink.
So if you want something that looks good, but is also useful to prevent stains and other misfortunes, it would be better to get a cup and a saucer set.
