These Delicious Teas May Boost Your Health: Library Grab n’ Go

By Krista, Reference Assistant

Not many pleasures in life rival the coziness of curling up with a blanket, a book and a steaming mug of hot tea.  In fact, this warm drink is soothing not only to the soul, but to the body as well.  Some health-boosting benefits of tea: 

  • Green tea:  Improves cholesterol levels, burns fat, reduces the  risk of stroke 
  • Black tea:  Lowers cholesterol, protects lungs 
  • White tea:  May  fight heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer 
  • Chamomile: Calms and acts as a sleep aid 
  • Peppermint Helps relax muscles and settles the stomach 
  • Ginger:  Eases nausea, helps with menstrual pain, protects against cancer, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes 
  • Turmeric:  Relieves arthritis pain and inflammation, boosts immunity, lowers cholesterol, helps prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s.  (Ask a doctor before taking turmeric if you are diabetic or are taking blood thinners). 

If you are heading to the library to pick up the items you have placed on hold, be sure to ask about our Adult Grab-and Go Bags every week in January while supplies last. On request, during the first week of January, we will bring you a mug and tea bags with your curbside delivery of library items.  Unwind from the holidays, boost immunity, and experience the health benefits of hot tea.   

For more books and articles about the health benefits of hot tea, please visit our website and search our E-Branch for the Consumer Health Complete resources to find “Tea” options.

We also have a selection of books about growing plants for teas, preparing and brewing them, and supporting health with teas:
