Darjeeling tea is made from the Chinese variety of the tea plant Camellia sinensis. It is a thin, light-colored tea with a floral aroma. The tea plant, like most plants, goes through periods of growth and periods of dormancy. Each flush is a period that starts when the tea plant grows new leaves and ends when those leaves are harvested.
3 Health Benefits of Darjeeling Tea:
High in Antioxidants
Darjeeling tea is rich in antioxidants, which are known to combat free radicals in the body, neutralize chemicals during digestion, and eliminate toxins.
A cup of tea provides useful hydration to the body and helps combat dehydration.
Darjeeling tea helps the body regulate the production of cortisol, known as a stress hormone.
Darjeeling tea is best enjoyed during the midmorning or early afternoon. It does have some caffeine, so it should be avoided in the late afternoon or evening (and earlier for those with caffeine sensitivities). If you have a sensitive stomach, avoid drinking Darjeeling tea on an empty stomach.
