When I was little my mom used to make me tea. It always made me feel better. To this day it is still one of my favorite beverages and my go-to solution for stress. It gives me the relaxation I need. Tea contains many vitamins and minerals that benefit your body and help you get through a tough day. There’s a reason tea has a multicultural acclamation for its soothing qualities.
Depending on the tea you may get different vitamins and minerals, but there are some that are fairly standard. Common vitamins in tea are B, C, E, and K. They are anti-oxidants which prevent the production of free radicals in your system that can cause chain reactions leading to cancers and degenerative diseases.
