Teas People Who Don't Really Drink Tea Should Try

Not a huge tea fan? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Just because you don't like traditional English breakfast tea that doesn't mean that you don't like tea at all — the chances are you just haven't found the right tea for you yet.

Clasping a steaming hot cup of tea in your hand can make even the chilliest of winter days seem cozy. It's warming and wholesome, and somehow it has an effect that other hot beverages lack. As Keri Gans, M.S, R.D, and author of "The Small Change Diet" told She Knows, there's something soothing about tea. "I am not sure if science will back this up directly, but it's often the ritual of drinking tea," she explained. "It soothes stress. It helps you relax."

And, according to Gans, tea doesn't just taste good, it's also good for you. Studies have shown that not only is tea packed with antioxidants, but it is also linked to helping to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and your risk of cardiovascular disease. That is, as long as you don't add lots of honey or sugar, as this turns a healthy drink into one packed full of empty calories.

If you don't like traditional tea, what teas should you try?

What teas should you try if you don't like 'normal' tea?

As Keri Gans explained to She Knows, a lot of people don't enjoy the bitter taste of more traditional teas like English Breakfast Tea and Earl Grey Tea. However, if you're going to enjoy drinking tea, it's important to learn to appreciate tea for its taste. A great tea to try if you're not a big tea fan is Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea; this is a black tea that combines orange peel, cloves, and three different types of cinnamon adding to the natural sweetness of the tea.

She Knows also recommends Tazo Organic Spicy Ginger Tea, which is said to aid digestion thanks to its calming ginger and soothing chamomile.

According to Nutritional Lunatic, there are a number of teas that are perfect for people who don't like tea. Peppermint tea is one option that can be great if you don't like the taste of tea, as peppermint tea isn't actually made with tea leaves — instead it is brewed with peppermint leaves.

Don't forget, tea can be enjoyed cold as well as hot. Iced tea can be a great option if more traditional tea doesn't take your fancy. Lemon, mango, and raspberry are the most common iced tea flavors, but there are lots of other options too, many of which you can buy instant iced tea powder to make.
