Where do y’all get your tea from? I’ve really been wanting to get into drinking green tea, but it looks like I’m going to have to get it online in order to get high quality organic tea. I’ve looked in different stores near me and I just can’t find what I want.
I drink a lot of bottled green tea, but I’m starting to wonder if it isn’t high quality. I love the green tea I’m drinking now, but I think I’ll switch to organic. I’ll try the loose leaf since it’s tastier, as Eartha Green has commented. I’ve read drinking and soaking your nails in green tea make them stronger, also.
I love tea, both to drink as a beverage and for medicinal purposes! I buy the Traditional Medicinals brand and always keep a few staples on hand: Breathe Easy, Gypsy Cold Care, and Throat Coat. My son has asthma and the tea seems to help him when he’s sick. Plus, he likes the taste of it.
I’ve researched green tea and the substances called polyphenolic catechins found in it are stronger than vitamin E in fighting free radicals. The Chinese show low incidences of cancer, who drink it instead of coffee.
I know it’s terribly indulgent but I have purchased the tea of the month option from The Tea Spot. I get the organic option and they send me a shipment every three months. Each shipment has three or four varieties and blends. It’s expensive but if you have a little to spare to indulge, I highly recommend it!
I love tea and start my morning with a cup or two. I have to admit that I only like a few herbal teas, mainly because many of them are very mild in flavor and I prefer a more full-bodied taste. I only use tea bags. I find loose tea is a lot more work.
