Although I'm an avowed coffee drinker, I also like sipping on tea now and then for relaxation and detoxification. Teas have caffeine, but they also have lots of antioxidants. However, the best reason to drink tea rather than coffee is for their body cleansing properties. Detoxify your system with the following types of teas.

#1: Nothing More Reliable Than Green Tea

As the subheading says, you'll never go wrong with a cup of green tea every morning. If you're a fan of tea parties, then sip some camellia sinensis from a demitasse while you nibbled on Russian tea cakes and French macaroons before dinner.

#2: A Little Sweetness Takes the Bitterness Away

Some tea drinkers like to put a cube or two of sugar into their cup. It takes the bitterness away. However, for those who don't want to put sugar into their tea, but like a little sweetness just the same, try Rooibos or Honeybush tea.Both come from South African varieties of tea. Rooibos or Red Bush has a pleasant aroma and a nutty flavor while Honeybush takes after its namesake and smells similar to honey. Commercial teas made from Honeybush has a floral scent and some hints of peach and apricot in the flavor.

#3: Chamomile and Peppermint Tea with Honey

Rather than mixing granulated sugar with your tea, why don't you try using honey or even agave instead? Diabetics often use these alternative sweeteners because they have low Glycemic Index values. For the purpose of cleansing your colon and liver, make homemade tea by blending chamomile with peppermint and adding honey to sweeten it. Chamomile as well as rose hip and dandelion can revitalize your liver and detoxify your bloodstream.Meanwhile, peppermint tea provides relief from bloating and flatulence.

Other types of tea for cleansing include Tulsi, which is decaffeinated and has a sweet minty flavor. It's been a favorite among tea drinkers in India because of its curative properties.
