Tea ... so much in this sound! Tea is a drink made from dried leaves of the Chinese camellia (Caméllia sinénsis).

All types of tea are produced from the leaves of this wonderful plant - white, green, red, oolong, pu-erh tea.

Each type of tea has its own flavor and aroma characteristics, its own beneficial properties. The taste and aroma of tea depends on the production technology and the type of raw material - it can be tender young leaves and buds harvested in early spring or juicy mature leaves from old age-old trees.

But there are companion plants that have been added to tea for a long time. Nature has given us many useful plants that delight us with their beauty in bloom, give us delightful scent and strengthen our health.

Floral additives

Jasmine

The most popular tea addition, since ancient times the Chinese began to dry green tea along with fragrant jasmine buds.

Fresh tea leaves absorbed the aroma, after which the flowers were removed and pure tea, naturally flavored, remained. But by themselves, jasmine flowers can serve as a wonderful addition not only as an addition to tea.

Jasmine is brewed as a separate drink - it is known as an aphrodisiac, contains a lot of beneficial vitamins and minerals, fills with inspiration and awakens the senses. A cup of hot green tea with jasmine petals will relieve headaches. Jasmine is also effective for migraines. The smell of jasmine drives away anxiety, fear, depression.

Green tea with jasmine perfectly fights irritability, improves mood, tones the body. If you are more accustomed to black tea, jasmine flowers will perfectly complement its taste and aroma.

Jasmine can be grown at home. Indoor jasmine will fill your home with fragrance and create an atmosphere of blooming spring, which is always with you!

Osmanthus

One of the most expensive flower supplements.

The flowers look small and unprepossessing, but the aroma exceeds all expectations! There is a sultry summer, honey, ripe apricots warmed by the sun, and oriental spices - the aroma of osmanthus flowers is delicious!

It goes well with black tea, but no one forbids experimenting.

Osmanthus are the flowers of the cinnamon tree. The cinnamon we are used to is the bark of this tree.

And the scent of flowers has nothing to do with cinnamon, oddly enough.

Osmanthus flowers have a sedative effect, cleanse the blood of toxins, and lower cholesterol levels.

At the same time, the aroma is able to awaken the senses, tune in a romantic mood, and raise the mood.

Osmanthus is a rich source of antioxidants, it rejuvenates the body, improves the condition of the skin and hair. Add a pinch of osmanthus to your usual tea - and its aroma and taste will sparkle with new notes!

Tea rose

Fragrant buds are added to tea or brewed separately.

The buds are not only beautiful - they increase immunity and resistance to various diseases. They have a calming effect, normalize digestion, and are a well-known aphrodisiac.

The rose, as an additive to tea, is specially grown in China, demanding selection of the best buds, dense, bright in color.

Rose is quite capricious in leaving, but the result will exceed all expectations! You will always have fresh fragrant buds at hand, which can be added to tea or brewed separately!

Chrysanthemum

The amazing scent of these flowers inspires and fills with vitality.

It goes well with shu pu-erh, but it can also be brewed as a standalone drink.

Chrysanthemum flowers strengthen the immune system, help to activate the body's defenses. The petals of these flowers are rich in minerals such as potassium, selenium, magnesium, zinc. Used as an antipyretic and antiseptic. Considered to be an excellent remedy for preventing Parkinson's disease.

Chrysanthemum takes root well in the climatic conditions of Ukraine, you can grow it in the country or on the balcony. White flowers are considered the most fragrant.

Hibiscus (Hibiscus, Sudanese Rose)

Brewed as a standalone drink, but goes well with herbal tea.

Gives the infusion a delicious bright color and pleasant sourness in the taste.

Hibiscus is one of the most popular drinks that we sometimes call red tea. Tea strengthens the walls of blood vessels, has antipyretic, antispasmodic and diuretic properties. Due to the high content of vitamins, the drink improves immunity.

Hibiscus tea has an amazing effect on blood pressure. It raises blood pressure when hot, and lowers it when cold. Therefore, those who suffer from hypertension or hypotension should carefully monitor the temperature of the drink.

Hibiscus grows in Sudan and is grown in large quantities in Egypt, Ceylon, Java, Mexico, Thailand and China. But as it turns out, in our climate, you can also grow Venice Mallow at home in a pot. True, it would be a pity to brew this beautiful flower like tea.

Herbal tea

Non-teas, as we call them, is anything that is not made from the leaves of Caméllia sinénsis. There are many plants that can be called tea too.

Sagan Daila (Rhododendron Adams)

Grows in the Far East and has powerful tonic properties.

It is considered the strongest energy stimulant, an order of magnitude more effective than the golden root, lemongrass, ginseng. One leaf is enough to charge the body with energy for the whole day.

Strengthens the immune system, removes toxins and toxins, has a beneficial effect on potency in men and sexual activity in women. It slows down the aging process, fights against alcoholism, relieves hangover syndrome.

In general, the usefulness of this miracle herb is worth describing in a separate article. Sagan Daylya is a folk energy stimulant that prolongs life!

Rooibos

Made from the Aspalathus linearis plant, which grows exclusively in the Söderberg Mountains in southwestern South Africa.

Does not contain caffeine.

Also interesting is the Green Rooibos with a low degree of fermentation.

It is useful because it soothes, evens out the emotional state, stimulates the work of the gastrointestinal tract. Green rooibos when brewed is light in color and has a mild herbal flavor.

Alpine meadow

A popular herbal blend based on the Paraguayan mate tea.

It also contains lemongrass, which gives the drink a bright citrus aroma. Tasty, healthy, effective.
