I must admit I was not always a tea drinker, the bug just bit recently and now I can’t imagine life without it. When in doubt, boil the kettle I say. Drinking tea has really helped me to put life into perspective.
Whenever I feel that I just need a break, take things slow and appreciate life – I make myself a cup of tea.
It is so important in today’s fast pace lives, that we take breaks more often and appreciate how far we have come and celebrate our lives, give thanks and just be still. Put your phone down whilst enjoying your brew!
With over 1 500 varieties, not including all the different herbal blends, it’s a comforting and pleasant drink with many healing effects. Tealeaves contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols that help to prevent cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, and other chronic problems.
One of my favorite after noon pick me ups – Green Tea with a squeeze of lemon – lemon boosts the health benefits of green tea, as citrus juice makes green tea’s antioxidants more readily available for your body. Besides reducing your risk of cancer, studies show that it can even help reduce belly fat.
