Pyur PH Teas
Their name is a spirited play on the word “pure,” which encapsulates their teas perfectly—clean, free, and unharmful. A Philippine-based brand, Pyur Healthy and Natural Teas aims to promote mindfulness, wellness, and sustainability with their premium loose-leaf teas.
They encourage you to slow down, to take care of yourself, to breathe. Tea time does exactly that. The patience, exactness, and care that goes into making a cup of tea will compel you to pause and reset. And that is a ritual—a routine, we can all get behind. But of course, tea isn’t only for slowing down. It also has many benefits for nutrition, and great for your fitness and diet. Medical studies and research have shown that drinking healthy tea promotes a variety of good for your overall health.
Herbal or Floral teas, like ginger, peppermint, and Pyur PH’s own Hibiscus, and Chamomile, all of which are high in antioxidants, help in lowering blood pressure, aids in weight loss, promotes better sleep and relaxation, and reduces stress and muscle spasms. They also help improve liver health, and can stave off sweet cravings. Likewise, they are effective in soothing upset stomachs, sore throats, and joint pain. These teas have a mild and calming taste, reminiscent of their benefits.
The Camellia sinensis plant, which varies in flavor depending on how the leaves are processed, is responsible for white, green, black, and oolong teas. These have a light grassy, woody taste, and are the teas usually preferred by regular tea drinkers. Green benefits include lowering bad cholesterol and blood pressure, and reducing blood clotting, all of which aid in preventing heart disease. Pyur PH’s green tea options include Genmaicha, Jasmine Green Tea, and Green Tea.
When the leaves of the same plant are oxidized longer to dry and ferment, it makes black tea, like Pyur PH’s English Breakfast. Black tea has caffeine, combats inflammation, supports a healthy immune system, and helps lower blood sugar. Oolong tea (which Pyur PH also has), on the other hand, is partially oxidized. Think of it as somewhere between green and black. Drinking oolong helps reduce anxiety, and increases alertness and focus of the brain. It can also help combat cognitive diseases, like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Pyur PH also has a variety of Fruity teas, which are all refreshingly sweet, with a slightly tart aftertaste. These are also great for cold brew, perfect for hot days. Aside from being delicious, they also help boost immunity, and help with detox. Their Honey Dipped Lemon Tea is one of their bestsellers.
Bottom line is, drinking tea does you good. It benefits not just your body, but your mind and your spirit, too. And Pyur Healthy and Natural Teas aims to encourage holisitic wellness: a perfect harmonization of health. With the high stress, fast paced life we usually lead, and in a world where everything is happening all at once, to have tea time is to have a wonderful and delicious reminder that sometimes, we need to slow down, breathe, and take care of ourselves.
