Tea is perhaps perfect drink; what could be more enjoyable than a cup of hot tea in cold winter days or more refreshing than a glass of iced tea during the hot summer afternoon? A long time ago there was nutrition and diet according to each blood group, so we offer you hot drinks that are ideal for each particular type.
Coffee in reasonable quantities is suitable only for those with blood groups A and B, and different types of teas are good for all groups. But since there are herbs that correspond to a particular blood group, there are also the ones that despite all their healing properties, they are unlikely to help.

Teas to Avoid
“The use of medicinal plants by blood groups is a primarily useful supplement in the prevention or in addition to conventional therapies,” says Dr. Ljubinka Stojkovic, phyto and apitherapist from Nis.
“Blood type is not significant when selecting food,” says Dr. Stojkovic. “Herbs should be used primarily to essential forms, so as original as possible.”
As there are herbs that correspond to a particular blood type, there is also a herb that despite all the healing shouldn’t be used at all.
Dr Ljubinka Stojkovic lists some inappropriate plants for all blood groups:
Blood type 0
Aloe, St. John’s-wort, strawberry leaf, coltsfoot, corn silk, leaf senna, shepherd’s purse, large Velcro
Blood type A
People with blood type A, which is the most common, have a lively, strong temperament, but vigorously react to all problems in life. Therefore, they’re recommended a phytotherapy that will
calm them down and “cool down”, help their poor mucous membranes and prevent the tendency to cold.
Corn silk, red clover, sorrel, rhubarb, cat scales
Blood type B
Red clover, leaf apricot, lime flower, coltsfoot, shepherd’s purse, mullein
