Multiple tea brands have come up with numerous variants ranging from green tea to organic, black, herbal and those with fruit-based infusions. While tea is usaully taken as a stress buster, there are many other benefits that different types of tea offer if consumed at a certain time and manner, say experts.
Typhoo Sales and Marketing Director Razi Khan and Teabox Founder and CEO Kaushal Dugar have listed some of the benefits that you can reap from some of the commonly used tea variants:

Black tea: Black tea is rarely mentioned in the context of tea's health benefits but it is rich in antioxidants, improves oral health, boosts weight loss and even brings down stress levels.
Also being an oxidised tea, it is known for having anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant properties that help control levels of bad cholesterol in the body, improves bone density, mitigates cardiovascular ailments and promotes wellness.

Green tea: Being a storehouse of many antioxidant compounds, it's easy to assume that green tea is one of the healthiest beverages. According to traditional Chinese medicine, drinking green tea helps relieve body aches, aids digestion, impacts the process of detoxification and, generally, enhances quality of life.
Aqueous extract of green tea polyphenols contains antimutagenic, antidiabetic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic properties.

Oolong tea: Oolong tea promotes fat metabolism (pushing the body to burn fat for energy), and blocks the absorption of excess fat and cholesterol. So regular consumption of oolong tea can boost weight loss.

Diabetes: Blood sugar and insulin can be regulated by oolong tea. This prevents the dangerous spikes and dips in blood sugar that spells disaster for type-2 diabetes patients. With regular medicines, oolong tea can balance the blood sugar levels.

Stress management: A controlled experiment performed on mice showed that 10 to 18 percent of subjects showed improvement in stress levels after consumption of oolong tea. The presence of natural polyphenols in it is cited as the reason.
