Default Tea Is Not Just a Drink

Tea is a drink for those who wish to refresh themselves in the midst
of work. It gives energy and briskness to switch over from the
monotony of same kind of working in the office or the factory. They
contain some taste giving materials which are pungent, astringent and
also bitter simultaneously. The tea is not just a drink as it supplies
a healthy cup of benefits.

TEA INDUCES ZEAL:

The teas induce certain amount of zeal into your mind and invigorate
your body with energy. The taste helps to stimulate and revive the
energy to continue working for a long time.

TEA ELEVATES SPIRIT:

Peculiarly, some kind of teas with mild taste is capable of producing
a solace to keep you calm and quite raising your spirit to an elevated
level. You love to take a break and lighten up your spirit to make
things go easier.

On consuming a light leaf tea, you will think everything easy and
subtle; and allow things happen more cheerfully. You will become
instantly successful in handling the situation either way, brisk or
calm.

TEA IS WORTH GOLD:

As a green leaf, the tea is capable of giving a good medicinal effect;
as a semi processed and fully fermented, the tea has high value in
taste and medicinal worth. The tea liquor is golden in color and the
tate is worthier than the gold.

TEA TAKES IN ALL SPICES:

It tastes good as raw and also entertains nice with milk, sugar,
ginger, cardamom and other spices. There are teas infused with lime,
mint and cocoa also independently. There are instant teas that
dissolve in hot water or milk to give instant teas as the name
suggests.


TEA PREVENTS CANCER:

The anti-oxidant properties of tea are beneficial in the prevention of
cancers of the mouth, stomach, pancreas, lung, and esophagus. Tea is
especially beneficial to smokers because it counter-acts some of the
negative effects of cancers caused by smoking cigarettes. Dr.
Weisburger recommends that 5-6 cups of tea be taken per day.

TEA HELPS YOUR HEART:

The flavanoids in tea have anti-oxidative properties which lower blood
pressure, blood cholesterol, and reduce blood clotting, all of which
are factors in preventing heart disease.

TEA’S NUTRITIONAL BENEFIT:

The intake of 5 or 6 cups of tea per day increases one’s intake of
essential minerals such as manganese (essential for bone growth) and
potassium (essential for a normal heart beat, fluid regulation within
the cells, and muscles and nerves function).

Scientific information from the USDA points out that drinking one cup
of tea could make a significant contribution to daily antioxidant
intake, equivalent to approximately one serving of vegetables.

I dont think tea taste good with spicy foods. When you add flavorings
to tea it becomes something else. Normally it means you are trying to
hide something like the tea may be stale. Concoctions like chai and
bubble tea are flavored with tea. I like chai with spicy foods
because the milk coats the spicy taste similar to adding milk to
temper the harshness of an english breakfast tea. I like shu puer
with heavy meals because it acts as a 'grease' cutter.

PS If an Indian buffet doesnt throw in the chai as gratis I pass.
