It can’t be said enough how healthy and beneficial to your body it is to drink tea. Drinking tea as means to promote a healthy lifestyle is a tradition that dates back thousands of years. However, one of the most important aspects of drinking tea to nurture the body is knowing the right tea to drink at the right time of day, in order to maximize your results.
So, the question is, what tea should we drink during various times of the day?
Drinking Tea in the Morning
After a night’s rest, the body gradually dehydrates, and the density of the blood increases. Drinking a light tea can not only hydrate you and clean the stomach, but can also lower blood pressure, dilute the blood, and prevent and treat problems with digestion. However, keep in mind that it’s best not to drink stronger tea in the morning, as morning tea should be lighter than your usual daily tea.
Which tea should I drink in the morning?
Black tea is a great choice for morning tea, as it can increase blood circulation and repel the coldness from inside our body. Everyday after breakfast, drink a cup of black tea (you can also add milk in it). It should be noted that tea is best consumed after breakfast, since tea contains caffeine and drinking tea with an empty stomach will make the stomach absorb more caffeine, potentially resulting in frustrated stomach.

Drinking Tea in the Afternoon
Drinking tea around 3 pm in the afternoon is very beneficial to human body, as it can increase our immune system and prevent flus and colds. In fact, this time is perhaps the most important time to drink tea during the day. For people who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hyperlipidemia, drinking tea at this time can give you health benefits that go beyond even medicine.
Which tea should I drink in the afternoon?
In the afternoon, oolong tea or green tea can be a great choice. Since the internal temperature of the human body generally reaches its peak during this time, drinking oolong or green tea can help cool you down and soothe your digestion, providing a detox for your liver and kidney, and giving you plenty of antioxidants. Additionally, tea leaves contain an abundance of vitamin E, which has anti-aging effects.
Drinking Tea at Night
If you want to drink tea at night, drinking it around 8:30 is the best time. A lot of people seem to have some misunderstanding about drinking tea at night. They tend to worry that tea might influence their sleep quality, however, around 8:30 pm human body’s immune system is at its peak, so if you drink a cup of the right kind of tea, it can help the body to repair and replenish the immune system, and aid in the creation of cells.
Which tea should I drink at night?
At night, it’s best to avoid teas that contain high amounts of caffeine, as it can potentially disrupt your sleep cycles and cause bodily unrest throughout the night. Instead, we recommend that people drink aged and/or fermented dark tea, especially ripe Puerh. Ripe Pu-erh is mild, which won’t influence the quality of your night’s sleep, and it can also help with your digestion, breaking down fat and warming the stomach.
