Your Chamomile Tea Benefits

We love hearing from visitors to The Tea Talk website about their personal experiences with tea's health and wellness benefits. So many of our readers very generously share their personal stories about how tea has helped them with a wide variety of health concerns, from insomnia to anxiety to premature aging, and so much more!

However, one tea stands out from the rest when it comes to readers' comments... Chamomile Tea! This tea is delicious, nourishing, and good for us in so many ways, and we hear many stories about how chamomile tea has changed lives in big and small ways.

If you're interested in reading what others are saying about chamomile tea benefits (and perhaps share your own experience with chamomile tea), please drop by our website.


- A recent study found that regularly drinking tea and eating berries will help you maintain a healthy weight as you age. This study, which was published in the British Medical Journal, found that consuming foods high in plant compounds called 'flavonoids' - like tea, berries (such as raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries), citrus fruits, pears, apples, onions, peppers, and cocoa - can have a significant effect on keeping a healthy weight into old age for both women and men.

- The world's oldest tea was recently discovered in the ancient tomb of a Chinese Emperor who died in 141 B.C. It's uncertain whether the tea was used as a beverage or medicinally, but, either way, it's fascinating to think of the history of this amazing plant and imagine its uses throughout thousands of years!

Happy Winter! It's the perfect time of year to get to know a new tea or two... :)
