‘FOR THIS REASON, DRINKING TEA WITH MEALS IS NOT RECOMMENDED, NOR IS DRINKING TEA DURING THE HALF HOUR BEFORE OR AFTER A MEAL.’
It is 1:30pm on a Tuesday afternoon and I am unable to put down a book I started reading this morning!! The book is by professional tea tasters of the renowned Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Montreal – Kevin Gascoyne, François Marchand, Jasmin Desharnais and Hugo Américi and is titled “Tea History, Terroirs, Varieties (Second Edition).
I am learning about so much valuable information to do with Tea and all of the wonderful benefits attributed to drinking it that I am now feeling totally inspired to educate YOU and hopefully have you feeling equally as excited and knowledgeable around this fascinating and delicious beverage!
Ever since Shen Nong discovered the stimulating and detoxifying properties of tea some 4,000 years ago, humans have been interested in its medicinal properties. It is these properties that first made it popular, at a time when it was considered a medicine – explains Tea Histories Terroirs Varieties, Second Edition.
What you might not know is that one pot of tea, has the capabilities of …
Supporting the Heart System,
Activating the body’s Circulation
Helping detoxification and the elimination of toxins
Slows down the aging process
Helping to prevent certain types of cancer
Balancing the bodies temperature
Strengthening the immune system
In addition and something you may not be aware of is that tea facilitates digestion by stimulating the elimination of fats. On the other hand, it can inhibit the absorption of iron and calcium from foods. For this reason, drinking tea with meals is not recommended, nor is drinking tea during the half hour before or after a meal.
The book summarises that in general, drinking tea regularly reduces the risk of coronary disease and helps strengthen vascular walls while increasing the elasticity of blood vessels. It also slows the absorption of sugars and fats, controls hypertension and helps prevent food poisoning.
Aside from it’s wide assortment of delicious flavors, tea shares many beneficial medicinal properties which is why, after my son Jake’s accident and the significant impact it made on his recovery, we both become very passionate and enthusiastic around medicinal qualities associated to Tea – so much so that we decided to make a business out of it. Now we are able to help our customers by producing high quality and natural remedies to those dedicated to their overall health and wellbeing!
