Benefits of Black Tea for Skin Health

☕️Review of Typhoo’s Gold Great British Tea☕️

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.

In a previous post, I’ve mentioned some of the benefits that tea can have on your skin, but I want to dive deeper into the specific benefits of black tea before I get into my review of this delicious tea.

The black tea benefits for your skin include fighting against skin infections & blemishes, delaying aging, & curing puffiness. Further, the Polyphenols & tannins in black tea are linked to skin cell rejuvenation. Tea is often used topically in homemade beauty recipes. Always talk to your derm before concocting any potions for you skin at home.

Drinking black tea can potentially benefit the skin in three ways. First, it nourishes the skin with vitamins B2, C, & E, with minerals such as magnesium, potassium, & zinc, & essential polyphenols & tannins. Second, its caffeine & some of its other chemical components can kill oral viruses, which can help prevent skin infections & blemishes. Third, black tea has been shown to reduce expression wrinkles, such as horizontal forehead lines & crow’s feet. Black tea has been shown to reduce the signs of premature aging.

Topically, Black tea can also benefit your skin with direct application. For example, placing black tea bags under your eyes is said to help reduce puffiness & dark circles. Using black tea for herbal baths can provide an antioxidant boost for your skin & may even provide low levels of sun protection.

Now, let’s talk about Typhoo Gold! I love English teas & this one is an excellent choice if you are looking for a robust, flavorful tea with a kick.

☕️About Typhoo☕️

Launched in 1903 by Birmingham grocer John Sumner, & originally sold as a cure for indigestion, Typhoo is still one of Britain’s favorite teas. Typhoo’s team of expert tea buyers & blenders carefully select only the finest tea leaves to ensure great taste, quality & freshness from every cup of Typhoo.

It is with John Sumner’s values for quality & excellence that Typhoo Gold is based, selecting the finest, bright & flavorsome African teas. Typhoo Gold is a deliciously rich, full-bodied & refreshing blend accompanied by a delightful golden liquor, making it a tea to be relished throughout the day.

☕️My Thoughts 💭

Who doesn’t love Typhoo? Who doesn’t just love saying Typhoo? I was introduced to this tea after my mom returned from visiting a friend who had spent time in Germany. She introduced my mom to this delicious, fragrant tea. This tea is an excellent way to unwind naturally without spending tons of money. This tea is made from the finest tea blends making it distinctly different from other English teas on the market. This tea is rich in antioxidants. Not just a good tasting tea, it is extremely healthy & helps to detox your system. It is made from organic tea herbs & is sourced from certified rainforests. It has a typical English tea body, flavor & texture. It is perfect any time of the day. It is ranked among the top 5 English teas. A little bolder & brighter than Typhoo’s original blend, this tea is wonderful with a dash of cream & sugar. Typhoo is a stout, flavorful tea, yet it is not harsh or bitter. If you are looking for a light & delicate tea, Typhoo Gold isn’t for you. It is a wonderful blend of Assam & other teas. You can find this product on Amazon for $7.58 for 80 tea bags. I recommend this tea, especially if you enjoy English teas. I will repurchase this tea.
