Both tea and coffee have been the world's second most favorite drink after to water. Most tea and coffee enthusiasts can hardly choose which among these two drinks is better, but now to perhaps settle this dilemma, a coffee leaf tea has been discovered.
The researchers of this so-called "coffee leaf tea" - the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, London and the Joint Research Unit for Crop Diversity, Adaptation and Development in Montpellier made a rare tea out of coffee leaves and claims that this is healthier than both drinks.
I am particularly keen on topics regarding coffee and tea. I am a fan of both, but my curiosity led me to do my own research. In the end, it actually helped me come up with a comprehensive generalization and of course a more favored drink. If you are as curious as I am, or just want to learn bits of information, please read on.
We have already begun comparing coffee vs tea on our first short article. Now we will discuss more of the overall feel, the drinking experience and the compostition that makes coffee and tea distinct from each other.
Over a half million people die every year from heart disease. Although heart disease in some cases can be cured, the key to avoiding heart disease is prevention.
According to the Mayo Clinic, there are five key steps to preventing heart disease:
1) Do not use tobacco of any kind (luckily, smoking is no longer considered cool)
2) Try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day (a walk is one of those things that's only tough to get started, but you love it once your up and moving)
What could be better than tea, than some yummies to go along with it!
When I went on a university trip to London, that was when I was introduced to proper English tea. Earl Grey with cream, or with lemon, but not at the same time. And I discovered tea biscuits. Oh I ate many McVities Rich Tea Biscuits.
While sipping tea recently with a friend, I was impressed by her sugar dispenser, a little glass bauble which puts out exactly one teaspoon of sugar each time you invert it. I sheepishly admitted that I don't get out much, and I might even have uttered the word "newfangled." Then she told me the piece was actually old. Oops.
With my son sound asleep right next to me this 3rd month of his birth, I have shaken the dust off of my copy of Culinary Tea and am ready to dive back into trying all recipes.
If you are like many people, myself included, it's hard to remember to drink enough fluids when you're not hot. Most of us remember that if we're exerting our bodies physically, we need to replenish them with water, tea, or other beverages; but when temperatures drop and we find ourselves shivering our way into work, hydration is not quite so intuitive. The fact is, however, that the white mist you breathe out is actually water vapor: you lose just as much water in the winter as you do during the summer!
As dairy-free alternatives to milk become increasingly popular, more and more tea aficianados are curious about adding these products to tea.
As a lactose-free tea-lover myeslf, I took a few hours this morning to experiment with various non-dairy milks in tea.
I tried Almond Breeze unsweetened original, unsweetened vanilla, and sweetened vanilla almond milks in black tea. The unsweetened original and unsweetened vanilla almond milk did very little to cut the astringency of the tea, but the sweetened vanilla almond milk tasted almost identical to vanilla cow's milk. The texture was also very smooth and creamy.
Are you trying to lose weight, maintain your weight, or lower your blood sugar or cholesterol? If so, then I'm sure that at one time or another you have tried to accomplish your goals by skipping dessert.
But really, who wants to skip a sweet ending to a long day of work or school?
Fortunately, you can still have your sweet ending but spare yourself the calories and the guilt.
Anyone who knows me would describe me as a gym rat. Other than a good cup of tea, there's nothing I love more at the end of a long day of work than hitting the weight room floor.
But all of my workouts leave me with one negative side effect: soreness.
I'm sure you are familiar with it: the day after hitting a new personal record in deadlifts or your first 10-mile run, you're sore. This soreness, known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) can persist for days and, in severe cases, can even interfere with day-to-day life.
Women have conquered unthinkable odds in the past few decades. We've become multifaceted business moguls, competitive athletes and supermoms who fight for rights and break glass ceilings. With the world at our fingertips, why then can it seem impossible to conquer our own hormones?
Herbal teas and natural herbs found in loose leaf tea blends may provide a basis for balance and promote your well-being. From PMS, through pregnancy and even menopause, you can find a useful tea in each facet of feminine health!
Pre Menstrual Syndrome: PMS
Who doesn't wish they looked like someone else at one point in their life? Or that they could have their high school waist forever?
Even though I am only in my 20s, I already feel my metabolism quickly slowing down and my six pack abs from my previous soccer years adjust to a more flabby feel. While I'm not huge into diets, I do like to stay healthy and I am looking to TONE TONE TONE what my mama gave me.
One of my biggest challenges in the fight in staying healthy and fit, is the ever tempting second-helpings of my favorite thing — carbs!
No one will scold you for having second helpings of vegetables (no, fries do not count) and fruit, but when it comes to startches like pasta, it's hard for me to say no.
As the tea puffed its warning steam, the host of the teahouse urged me to drink up. I was in the Old Town of Shanghai and after market hunting and bargaining I needed a good wake up. Tea.
Old Town is a reminder, albeit kitschy, of the bustling financial city’s older glamour and simpler times. Dragons decorate ornate black and white buildings, red lanterns populate the area like tourists and truly nothing is more relaxing to escape the preying hawkers than to sit for a spell and watch some tea seep.
So, after the requested gift of Jasmine, I asked, what is the best?
“Picture two middle-aged mice, born at the same time. One suffers from gray hair, shriveled muscles, and creaky joints. He's a pint-size Wilford Brimley. The other mouse, meanwhile, looks healthy and young—Jack LaLanne in his fifties. Why the contrast? While the geriatric mouse lived a sedentary life in his cage, his younger-looking contemporary literally outran the effects of aging,” says Outside magazine.
In today’s world, a food’s health profile seems relatively easy to understand. With a cursory glance at the label on a box of Oreos, you’ll not only discover it contains sugar, number one, but also artificial flavor and just 2 percent of calcium, despite all that rich cream in the middle; along with all those other things you didn’t want to read aloud to your conscience, like 60 calories from fat in just a few bites. In today’s world, unfortunately, you need the black and white stats.
But when you break a food apart to each ingredient, compound and chemical, piece-by-piece, how do you really know which is better for you?
At heart, I’m a chocolate lover. Since I’ve gotten older, my only change in vice, for sometimes it can reach unhealthy proportions, has been to move onto the dark side. If I had a chocolate number, 85% would be it.
However, sometimes you just want a little variety with your cacao. I’ve tried nuts; I love chunks of almonds swirled in. Espresso flavored bars are good too. But after investigating on the web, I realized I had been missing out on something pretty big—tea & chocolate.
I recently turned 23, I know, I’m still very young (or at least I hope that’s what you’re thinking). Yet still, no matter the age, birthdays always get me thinking about the past and what I want to happen in the future, before the next tick mark, 24. And as so, I’ve created a system, perhaps stolen from another, 23 things to do before 24.
It’s a list I put heavy thought into, much differently than my usual daily to-do jots. Among this year’s list: learn more about tea, become proficient in Spanish (as I’m moving to Spain next fall), keep studying Chinese, maintain target weight, run a marathon.
In the history of tea, it’s a long one. And as for its birthplace in Yunnan, China, I couldn’t think of a more idyllic one.
As I posted earlier, I recently visited tea’s historic roots, both physical and mythical, in Yunnan. A unique province, for sure, Yunnan is tea central for any tea buyer, casual drinker or coinsurers. And as for the traveler, it’s a prized gift-buying paradise—tea—something people back home will actually use.
I decided I wanted to start with something that sounded a bit easy so I don't get discouraged too soon. I also wanted a combination that was not too heavy for dinner. A soup and salad seemed to fit the bill.
Lapsang Souchong Tea and Parsnip Soup: Serves 4
When the camelia sinensis plant gave birth, she produced a similar yet very distinctive set of quadruplets: green, white, oolong and black. The siblings that shine the most are the oldest and the youngest...green and black. As the youngest, black tea has for many generations been the spoiled, all American favorite especially in southern households as it is welcomed with every meal, iced. Green tea, although it chose to go backpacking around the world and thus developed a finer sense of appreciation, has far lived in the shadow of its youngest sibling at home...
