Not a tea drinker? Then it might be time to convert! With the six different types of tea below, you’ll have no problem finding one that’s right for you!

Often served in Chinese restaurants, oolong tea can be a healthy part of your weight loss plan. When it comes to skin disease like eczema, a study revealed that if drinking one liter of oolong tea can provide moderate improvement in your skin after a month.
