Simple Pleasure

   Take time for tea. It is liquid wisdom, a simple process that promotes well-being by centering, balancing, and nurturing us. Tea soothes, creates a reflective mood, and an escape from stress. Making time for tea will draw you to the present, away from the past and the future. Tea Cup
   Taking tea can be personal, or a sharing with others. Tea stimulates conversation when shared with others, yet it complements quiet solitude, reading, and studying as well. Good tea invites a tranquil mood and is a joy in any season, rain or shine. It warms us when it’s cold outside, and cools us when it’s hot. It soothes and centers our spirit.
   A most important part of making time for tea is in the choosing of a quality tea. A tea with energy that is suitable for being helpful to us. Making teatime a routine part of your life is wise with the finest quality, most satisfying tea that can be found, organic EDEN Tea.
   "Bread and water so easily become toast and tea," they said.

Antioxidant Catechins

   True teas all stem from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. They become green, black, or other types of tea depending upon how they are cured and handled. (Herbal teas do not contain tea leaves and are rather, infusions.) Right after tea is picked the leaves begin to oxidize, but with Japanese green teas this process is stopped with a steaming and rubbing technique. This practice preserves the bright green of its chlorophyll and all of its beneficial antioxidants, such as tannins, flavonoids, and epigallocatechins (EGCG). These antioxidants are collectively referred to as ‘catechins’ and they account for 40% of green tea’s dry weight.
   Researchers report that taking green tea with a slice of citrus further enhances its antioxidant benefits, while drinking it with milk diminishes them. They also discovered that L-theanine, a nonessential, non-protein amino acid in green tea, which is largely responsible for its unique flavor, enhances learning ability, induces relaxation, and inhibits caffeine stimulation. Green tea also facilitates metabolism of body fat, safely aiding in weight management.
