It is really easy to make peoples day...you just have to choose to do so...
...however it would be unreasonable to expect you to be happy all the time...you need the lows to get the highs...but whatever mood you are in….a cup of tea goes with anything!...and it is so very healthy for you...but don’t take our word for it...there is lots of research to back up this bold statement!!
TEA IS GOOD FOR YOU!!! - TEA IS HEALTHY!!!!
"Tea is a continuous crop. It takes 3 years to grow from a cutting to a tea bush that will produce harvestable leaves. The bush will then produce leaves each day for another 50 years. This is a good thing – a tea estate absorbs more CO2 than it emits…..Drink tea and help save the planet!"
Our tea supplier ensures that all of the naturally flavoured teas are purchased from estates monitored by the Ethical Tea Partnership. Drinking tea is a global pleasure but behind each cup lies a much larger picture – the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the developing world. The ETP works to make this picture transparent. The organisation monitors the living and working conditions on estates to ensure that every cup of tea you drink has been produced in a socially responsible manner.
So we want to spread the word about tea and to try to get you to find at least one cuppa that you want to drink a lot of...because its good for you...and we have at least 40 different types to try…so we are sure there is one for you.
- A Health Canada study, published in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxology, suggests teas of all kinds may limit cell mutation linked to chronic diseases like cancer.
- The healthy properties of green tea are largely attributed to polyphenols, chemicals with potent antioxidant properties. In many cases, the antioxidant effects of tea polyphenols appear to be greater than those of Vitamin C. Green tea also contains alkaloids like caffeine, theobromine and theophylline that contributes to its effectiveness as a mild stimulant.
- A 15 year Swedish study of 61,057 women found that those who drank 2 or more cups of tea per day had a 46% lower risk of developing ovarian cancer compared to non-tea drinkers.
- Drinking tea may aid in weight loss. In recent years the anti-obesity and hypolipidaemic effects of black tea have attracted increasing interest, although the exact reasons behind the phenomena remain unclear. In a recent study researches found that theaflavins present in tea significantly reduce lipid accumulation, suppressed fatty acid synthesis and stimulated fatty acid oxidation, factors that appear to help prevent obesity and related liver damage. - Source: Abstract abr.
