Have you ever wondered why a lot of people love waking up to a nicely prepared tea in the mornings — during winters and even on a hot summer day?

 

We all know tea is a wonderful natural beverage with a ton of health benefits. But it’s just so awesome in the mornings because tea works like coffee. All teas have caffeine and thiamine, elements that improve alertness. Who wouldn’t want such a nutrition-packed morning pick-me-upper?

 

There have been numerous studies backing up claims of the benefits of tea for health. And recently, additional research from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) has further supported that tea could benefit our health. In this recent study, the researchers have focused on the effects of tea on weight loss, cancer and cardiovascular risk, bone strength and attention and focus.

Tea, being one of the world's most favorite drinks, is loved by people because of its exquisite taste.

Coffee leaf teaBoth 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.

fluoride in teaWith tea providing us a huge number of diverse health benefits, there are still those who remain skeptical as to how healthy tea is for their bodies. And given the widespread rumors as to the so-called drawbacks of tea, I find it important to tackle some of them and somehow show that tea is nothing less than a healthy drink.

We've already discussed the iron absorption effects of tea on food and drinks. Now we'll have to tackle the amount of fluoride in tea, which, some people thought to be alarming.

What is fluoride?

tea and iron deficiencyIt has been told that drinking tea may have iron-inhibiting effects in the body. And because of that, some people have been avoiding tea. But little do we know that the iron absorption effects of tea are minimal, because it only affects nonheme iron, and it's not necessary to stop consumption in the fear of being iron deficient.

Do you take sugar?

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.

High TeaWhat is High Tea exactly? Low Tea and High Tea are like small meals, almost like snacks, served with tea. Low tea, which gets its name from being served on a low table, like a garden table or coffee table, would be served somewhere between noon and 5 PM and hence sometimes goes by the name Afternoon Tea. High Tea is typically served around 5 - 6 PM and is a heartier snack, with meats, breads and of course tea. High Tea got it's name from being served on the dining table which was typically the tallest table in the house.

sleepytime tea hobbiesHow is it that you enjoy your night time tea? Do you enjoy a cup of herbal in the quiet after the kids go to bed? Do you sip a cup during the nightly news? I take mine out to the front porch and sip my tea while I drink in the night. Listening to the night sounds of suburbia, Killdeers winging through the dark... Sometimes watching a bat fly in and out of the streetlight catchng insects.

Watching blooms while drinking tea 1

If you're like me, you drink tea at all hours of the day... right up until (and sometimes past) bedtime. This post is about one of those nights... I love to sit outside, while drinking my favorite cup (or pot in this case) of decaf or herbal, in the summer when the night bloomers are active and take in the aroma of night blooming jasmine... Some orchids, too, only emit their lovely fragrances at night. One of my favorite night time specticals is the opening of my night blooming Epiphylum cactus flowers.

It starts out like this...

Women have used teas to improve their complexions for centuries and beauty consumers of today are no different. Studies have credited tea with a relieving such skin conditions as acne and rosacea, and helping to protect against ultraviolet rays which cause wrinkles and skin cancer. One study actually credits tea with rejuvenating the skin! 1 Currently, there is a vast array of products containing tea on the market ranging from cleansers to creams.

One of my favorite herbal teas is Chrysanthemum tea. This fragrant tea is reported to have many medicinal values in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Most notably, within TCM, it is claimed that Chrysanthemum tea can help support the immune system, and help keep your body from getting sick. Studies suggest that chrysanthemums contain a high amount of B Carotene. This is converted to Vitamin A in the liver, which can help support the immune system. Drinking the tea is also claimed to have a cooling effect, reducing body temperatures during a fever and soothing a sore throat.Chrysanthemum Blooming Tea

How tea can save you from stressful midterms

tea can reduce stress during testsMidterms are, once again, upon many college students across the nation and while many are grabbing coffee and energy drinks to keep them focused all through the night, I’m personally reaching for tea.

Now some of you may wonder how tea can even COMPARE to a product such as Five-Hour Energy when students are looking for that extra boost. While tea is not filled with the same caffeine that students think they are looking for, it IS filled with many values that energy drinks, soda, and coffee can’t even compare to.
