Top 5 Benefits of Earl Grey Tea

1 Min Read | August 16, 2018

Known for its robust flavor and citrus overtones, Earl Grey tea is a popular blend around the world. Whether enjoying a lively cupful with breakfast or an afternoon snack, the relaxing experience brings with it a host of health benefits in each sip.* Among its many benefits, this tea blend:

Aids Digestion

When you experience common digestive disturbances like nausea and upset stomach, drinking a cup of Earl Grey may help calm the symptoms. This beloved English tea has been used throughout history to quell intestinal distress and restore balance to the body.

Boosts Mood

The bergamot orange in Earl Grey blends is thought to have a calming effect on the mind as well. As we sip, we inhale the aroma of a unique essential oil found in the rind and often used in fine fragrances for its pleasant, citrusy zing. Aromatherapy has long been studied for its ability to reduce anxiety, ease stress, and promote an overall sense of well-being.

Bergamot oranges help support the Immune System.

Bergamot’s antioxidant properties are thought to serve a dual purpose: they may also boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, help us fight off infections, and feel better overall. A stable and supported immune system is the most important defense mechanism the body has against illness, making it a precious commodity worthy of nourishment. What better way than a hot cup of delicious tea?

Promotes Healthy Teeth

Touted for its ability to maintain strong, healthy teeth, fluoride is an important part of an oral health regimen. In addition to the fluoride we take in through tap water and toothpaste, we can encounter it in its natural form just by drinking Earl Grey tea. In addition, tea delivers catechins, which are antioxidant compounds that may defend the body against common oral issues like cavities and periodontal disease.

Offers Hydration

Coffee is acidifying, dehydrating, and may cause nervousness or jitters due to its high caffeine content. Though Earl Grey tea also contains caffeine, its levels are typically much lower than those in coffee. Black teas also boast a small dose of potassium, a nutrient important for maintaining fluid balance in the human body’s cells.
