Tea is ubiquitous not just in our culture but also in most Asia cultures and many countries around the world.
There are reasons for this popularity. Most people just like the taste of tea, and how convenient it is; simple tea can be made with just hot water and a cup. But tea also has some great health properties, and also improves our mood and helps clear thought.
Tea is full of antioxidants, which are great for our physical health. It also contains small amounts of caffeine and theanine, which combine to boost our mental alertness while keeping us calm.
Some teas, like green tea, are claimed to have anti-cancer properties. Any evidence here is anecdotal, but tea appears to be healthy, which is always a good thing.
Pu Erh Tea
This is a fermented tea, with a full-bodied, yet mellow flavour. Its taste is thought to improve as it ages.
Pu Erh Tea increases energy with a moderate caffeine content while lowering bad cholesterol. It also has a high antioxidant content, clearing our body of toxins, and improving circulation and oxygen in the blood. It may have anti-cancer properties.
Another traditional tea. This is high in L-theanine, which puts us in a calm, clear state of mind. It is also very high in antioxidants and may help with weight loss. Oolong is made from the same plant as green and black tea but processed differently. It is oxidised, partly fermented, more than green tea but less than black.
This has become popular over the last generation. It is from the same plant as black tea, but the leaves are not oxidised.
Green tea contains a fairly high amount of L-theanine and a modest amount of caffeine. This combination gives us a clear focused mental state. It also contains antioxidants and may help fight cancer.
