The health super-hero, green tea, does it again.

Recent medical study results were released indicating that green tea can even combat and help prevent lung cancer. To make these findings even more compelling, the reduction in the risk of lung cancer due to drinking green tea even had this effect on cigarette smokers.

When a cowboy sidles up to a bar, he seldom orders a bubblegum-pink martini. Cinderella probably didn't chug beers at the prince's ball. Why not? Because many people believe that what you choose to drink says something about you. So what's your tea saying?

Truth is, I don't know. There's something oddly open-ended about a cup of tea, which can really suit anyone from sweet elderly folks to high-powered CEOs, from kiddos in shiny dress shoes to dirt-smeared laborers - and from john Wayne to a Disney princess. Though all true teas (but not tisanes) come from the same plant (Camellia sinensis), different leaf treatments and handling yield brews that range from the Zen of a fine green tea like Jasmine Pearls to the imagined classicism of Vanilla Creme Earl Grey.

Tastes and smells have the power to transport us to other times and places. Maybe the smell of the ocean brings you back to childhood vacations, the scent of pine trees conjures up Christmas, or one bite of a melted s'more has you looking for the nearest sleeping bag to snuggle up in. Of course, tea can do this for us too, and your trip down memory lane is as easy as boiling a pot of water.

As a librarian and an avid book collector, I often carry a mug of tea to my reading corner. Usually, I choose to drink Darjeeling or Irish Breakfast tea, but sometimes I enjoy matching my tea to the book. That’s really easy to do when reading the charming Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs. Series heroine, Theodosia Browning, is a marketing whiz who left her advertising agency career to open the Indigo Tea Shop in the historic district of Charleston, South Carolina. Theodosia frequently finds herself tracking murderers after catering Charleston society events. Her master tea blender Drayton Conneley and baker Haley Parker also assist in her sleuthing. Detective Burt Tidwell deplores Theodosia’s risk taking but also frequently enjoys discussing the latest case and partaking of the Indigo Tea Shops offerings.
