Herbal Teas

In China, where they have a tea history of over one thousand years, people enjoy endless cups of steaming hot tea at home and bring a thermos of hot tea with them wherever they go.

They believe that tea helps digestion and sharpens the mind. Monks are known to have relied on the power of green tea, to stay awake and focused during long hours of meditation and most of us know that green tea is good for us—it helps reduce inflammation, is a potent antioxidant, and may help with weight loss and general feel-goodness and who doesn’t love a good cup of mint or chamomile tea?

It is no wonder that tea drinking has become an indispensable part of their daily life but what most of us haven’t thought about before is how often we drink herbal ‘tea’ for leisure, not realising that these teas are potent medicine and today, science is revealing more secrets about the health benefits of tea.
