I enjoy tea mostly on ice. Every now and then I’ll have a cup hot but you’ll always find a jug of the cold version in the refrigerator at my house.
Are you aware this is the most consumed beverage on the planet second only to water?
You’ll find black. green, and white varieties. Blended and many types of herbs and spices added to the flavors. If you look you maybe surprised at how many other products have tea as an ingredient. Chocolates and candies. Swiss Rolls, Cookies, Puddings, Mousse, and Cheese Cake. Tempura rice flour breading. Your favorite cereal my also have it also. Those high energy bars and health food products also because of the high levels of anti-oxidants. The Japanese people have an ice cream they enjoy and is a big favorite.
If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty. ~Japanese Proverb
The brew is full of anti-oxidants. We all have heard about the health benefits. The ability to help prevent disease such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and muscle loss.
There are countless supplements on the market but as I always promote real food as the best way to get your daily intake of anti-oxidants. As with any good thing to much can be a bad thing. Taking these supplements can cause negative effects if you over do it.
Tea is healthy all around. There is a brew for near every ailment you can think of. From high blood sugar to a total body cleanse. The different flavors abound also. Don’t just think your only choice is the bagged brew on the self at you market. So many more can be found. Your sure to find one you like hot or cold.
As you my already seen me post I have been going to the South Bend Farmers Market and I met Andy and Katrina. They lived and worked in China for over four years and know their Teas and how to enjoy them. The company is called Great Horse Teas. If you have a question they will have an answer.

I am told don’t ruin the health benefits of your teas by adding sugar or sugar substitutes. Honey is best.
Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company. ~Author Unknown
