TEA, ANYONE?

Have you ever wondered about the magic of a cup of tea? Whether you sip alone with your feet up and a favorite book in hand, or with a group of friends enjoying good conversation, tea is a universal beverage that has a profound effect on those who partake.

From afternoon teas given at home by the ladies to entertain their friends in the mid-1800s to meeting a friend today at a local tea room, this magic brings comfort, warmth and soothing thoughts to the drinker. Tea relaxes. It refreshes. It energizes. And it has many health benefits as well.

Polyphenols, flavonoids, antioxidants, all these and more are found in tea whether black, green or white, oolong or souchong. Tea benefits the heart, bones, helps prevent the flu and may even help prevent some types of cancer according to one article I read online. For variety, try flavored tea or spiced tea, also known as chai. Wonderful!

So, put on the kettle and make a pot of tea. Invite a friend to join you or enjoy a few minutes of quiet solitude. Whichever, tea is a delicious way to get in touch with yourself away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Drink up and enjoy!
