Ramadan is observed by Muslims around the world as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community. It is a time of spiritual reflection, a time for acts of charity and generosity, and it is a time to bring family and friends together.
People are encouraged to make good choices and practise self-restraint.
Therefore, we want to explain the top three ways tea can support your Ramadan journey, helping you stay in top-condition during the holy month.
Tea is definitely a friend during Ramadan, so let’s get straight to the point!
1) Tea can help you connect
Tea helps create more chances for you to slow down and connect over a cuppa. Each cup is a chance to rejuvenate your spirit by pausing to connect with yourself and those around you.
2) Tea and hydration
You can get dehydrated during Ramadan. Tea is effective in replenishing lost liquids. Tea's antioxidant properties and flavonoids, help keep the body hydrated throughout the day, making fasting easier.
3) Tea and oral hygiene
Tea has antioxidant properties which help oral hygiene, removing unhealthy bacteria and bad-breathe.
So there it is, the health benefits in a single cup are huge!
Now that you know why tea is important to consume during Ramadan, let’s talk about which tea is best for Suhoor and which tea is best for Iftar...
