Unlike coffee or black tea, herbal tea doesn’t dehydrate your body – in fact it’s a great way to increase your fluid intake. Try consuming at least one herbal tea each day and see if you notice the health benefits! If you’re looking for an energy boost, green tea or guarana tea contain small amounts of caffeine, providing you with a light pick me up throughout the day.
