Enjoy the Power of Tea from Bloomex

Almost everyone has tried tea, and millions adore it. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. This aromatic hot drink is prepared by pouring hot water over the cured leaves of an evergreen plant called Camillia sinensis that is native to Asia. Tea as a drink originated in China for medicinal purposes and was brought westward by Portuguese priests and merchants.

 Make tea, not war. ~Monty Python

True tea comes in only four varieties: green, black, white and oolong. Most so-called “herbal teas” are actually infusions of various other plants and fruits but unless the drink contains actual tea leaves, it’s not really tea (but it’s still yummy).

We in Canada are big tea fans, and this is a good thing. Besides being a refreshing and soothing break in the day, tea provides amazing health benefits. This enjoyable beverage contains polyphenols (a type of antioxidant) and phytochemicals that, among other things, are associated with improved muscle endurance, lowered free radicals and cellular damage, lowered cancer rates, lowered Parkinson rates, better recovery from exposure to radiation, lowered Alzheimer rates, lowered cardiovascular and diabetes rates, and much, much more. (Drink up!)
