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.

Delightfully satisfying

The Samurai Spirit mate looseleaf herbal tea blended with the White Ayurvedic will be hard to beat. I was looking for soothing, easy on the tummy tea that would call me to have another cup. This is the one! So delicious ...perfect hot for cool mornings and evenings. For a daytime tea, it’s refreshing cold. In other words, you can’t go wrong with these two.

Thanks Barbara! So happy you are enjoying your tea and it is soothing on your tummy!
A Harvest Treat!

This is a wonderfully fragrant chai! It tastes amazing too. Like a cider and chai combined. A little honey and milk and you have a cozy and soothing drink!

Thank you Audrey! Great idea with the honey and milk!
