TEA LOVE AND MORE


I have days when all I want is good cup of hot tea, not iced tea ( personally I don’t like iced tea). Don’t get me wrong I love my coffee but some days only tea will satisfy.  For me personally I find tea to be very soothing and it has a calming effect on me.

There are many different types of teas with various health benefits, just to name a few: (1) Tea contains antioxidants (2) Tea aids with digestion and (3) tea also lowers stress hormones. You can find more information on the Health Benefits of Tea here and here.

These are the brands of tea I drink the most: Tetley British Blend  Premium Black Tea

From the site:

One of our best selling teas, British Blend combines premium Kenyan and Assam teas to deliver a richer, full-bodied blend with superior tea flavor, body and color. With 200 mg of antioxidants, an 8-ounce cup of British blend has more than three times the amount of antioxidants per serving as orange juice!1

 

Tea bags contain 25% more tea than standard tea bags (2.5 g versus 2.0 g). Soft and porous Perflo tissue is used in our round, stringless tea bags for faster infusion and better flavor release.

 

Once you taste it you will know why it is their best selling tea. They also have the Briish Blend in Decaf.  Their website is very informative they have included  the History of Tea  as well as Tea Tips ( how to brew the perfect cup of tea) etc.

 

Another brand I really enjoy is Bigelow specifically the Plantation Mint.

From the site:

You will find Plantation Mint® a delightful flavor surprise. We use only the finest mountain-grown tea blended with natural spearmint.

 

Oh and interesting fact they also have their own Tea Plantation.
