When we are researching and reading about teas, it is common to find in the properties of some the term “aphrodisiac”. This means that such teas are sexual stimulants – just like the well-known oysters. This property derives from the name Aphrodite, a Greek deity related to love and itteas that are aphrodisiacs
After all, are some teas really aphrodisiacs?
A curious thing about aphrodisiac foods and drinks is that none of them have scientific proof of this property, but they really are sexual stimulants (or at least give more energy at the time of the sexual act). This property attributed to them comes – surprisingly – from the legends passed down from generation to generation. Some are classified as aphrodisiacs because of the similarity between their shape and that of female or male sex organs.
But the important thing is that teas with aphrodisiac properties work, whether because of their strong smell, flavor or temperature. Check out some that can improve your sexual performance .
