All you tea lovin' lassies and non-believers gather around: whether you're trying to kick the coffee habit, or looking to reap a few extra health benefits, tea is the all-time soothing solution! These soul-nourishing bevvies are resplendent with a vast array of health kicks that extend to medicinal and healing purposes, with proven benefits to everything from the heart, to your bones, skin and even achieving a sound mind.

With less than a third the amount of caffeine than your typical cup of coffee, and packed full of antioxidants, you'd be nutso not to divulge in one of these warm sippers, regardless if it's black, yellow, green, white, fruit or a fancy herbal blend.

Browse through this gallery to get clued in on why you should be adding these detoxifying brews to your beverage menu. Your insides will thank you for it.

TOP TEA TIP: After boiling water, wait 5-10 minutes to let it cool before adding your loose leaves or buds. This will prevent the leaves from burning and prevent those antioxidant agents from being neutralised in the process.

    I love oolong! Not sure if having honey oolong would ruin the delicate flavour?

    Never heard of yellow tea though! Got to try that! :)

    Barry’s tea is incredibly delicious but so hard to source. It’s an Irish breakfast tea that has spoilt me for all others.

    My favourite is French Earl Grey. I am unaware of its benefits but I certainly love its fragrance.
