What’s So Special About Black Tea?

Have you ever had people nag you to switch from coffee to black tea? Do your parents or your spouse keep telling you how good it is for your health? We are here to tell you the same but don’t worry – we won’t leave you hanging. Read on to find out exactly why black tea is considered to be so beneficial for you.

Prevent Diseases

Studies suggest that women who consume black tea more often have a lower risk of ovarian cancer than their counterparts. If you consume it in moderate amounts, it may also help in preventing cancer. According to studies, if you drink 1-2 cups of black tea daily, the chances of you getting Type II Diabetes could be lowered by 70%. Others studies also suggest that if you consume about two cups of it every day, it could lower your risk of getting a stroke.

Healthy Bones

It has been suggested that people who drink tea regularly have healthier bones than the ones who don’t. Phytoestrogen and fluoride – two substances present in tea – are known to help in maintaining bone mineral density. In addition, tea drinkers have a lower risk of developing arthritis because of the phytochemicals found in tea. To optimize this benefit, avoid adding sugar (and those empty calories), and enhance the alkalinity of your black tea by adding lemon.

Relieve Your Stress

Did you know that tea can add to your happiness? And not just because it tastes so good! The caffeine in tea is absorbed in a way to stimulate mental focus and increase your concentration level. Studies show:

  • The amino acid L-theanine in black tea balances out our moods and helps promote relief from stress, making us feel good.
  • It improves your focus on things in a relaxed manner.
  • Black tea may help boost your memory function when consumed regularly
  • Plus the antioxidants, called polyphenols, are known to help block DNA damage caused by tobacco.

Don’t stop eating your vegetables, because the antioxidants in tea are different from the antioxidants found in your fruits and veggies. The best combination for your body is a habit of healthy eating and drinking tea.

Go steep a cup and start giving your body a boost towards health and happiness.

Delightful Tea

The Vanilla Matcha Green tea is a sweet, creamy delight!!! I mix it with other teas to get a smoother, creamy tea with a sweet touch..& so good for you as only green tea can be!! Love it!!

Love your creative blending Martha - Happy you are enjoying our Sweet Green Matcha!!
Ok, but not my cup of tea

I do like the apple notes, but for some reason I keep getting overpowering bitter notes from something in the tea at all temps and steeping times. Have mixed it with Samurai Mate and it does help a little bit with muting the bitter notes but still there.

Loose leaf tea flavors are such a personal preference Andrew - great idea on the blend! Try blending the Samurai Spirit Mate with White Ayurvedic Chai...I think you’d enjoy that - it is a customer fave! (And mine too!)

APRICOT VERDE LOOSE LEAF GREEN TEA

Love the teas

Great flavor really fresh news nicely and steeps to taste good

Thank you Connie!
Great option for those that miss the Teavana White Ayuervedic tea

I purchased this as I missed the Teavana White Ayuervedic tea during my normal mornings, instead of coffee. This hits all the right notes of warmth and spice that I was hoping it would. Mixed with the Samurai Mate, it brings it to a whole other level.

Thank you Andrew - I love that you blend of White Ayurvedic with our Samurai Spirit Mate! My fave!
