I know it’s weird to drink tea in the summer, but it really does hydrate you AND it cools you down. I’m not sure how it does it, but it does… TRUST!
I’ve recently been on a red tea kick, after my brother & his lovely fiance bought me a Teaopia infuser for my birthday… or was it Christmas. Can’t remember – doesn’t matter. The point is that it’s delicious. They have so many flavours of tea that I find myself drinking them not even missing my previous 2-milk, 2-sugar inclusions. You’ve heard of the benefits of green tea, right? Well, it turns out red tea is also very good for you.
Here’s what the experts at Teaopia have to say about it
“Rooibos, pronounced ROY-BOSS, is an evergreen shrub that comes from the Cedarburg region of South Africa. Rooibos, also known as Red Tea is a naturally caffeine free herbal, low in tannins and very high in antioxidants. Although Rooibos is fairly new to North America, it has been consumed in South Africa for generations. According to research Rooibos has been shown to aid in health problems such as insomnia, irritability and hypertention. Since Red Tea contains powerful antioxidants it also helps boost the immune system, destroy free radicals and slow the aging process. Rooibos is the perfect choice for introducing children to tea and for those sensitive to caffeine.”
Mmm… my favorites
“This flavoured White tea is a combination of White Tea, apple pieces, orange peel, ginger bits, cinnamon, lemongrass, coconut flakes, pistachio, red peppercorns, and corn flower blossoms. “
Slim & Slender
“This Wellness Blend is a combination of Yerba Mate, King of Pu-Erh, stinging nettle, carrot pieces, aloe vera, red rose buds, mallow flowers, calcium lactate, sunflowers and magnesium citrate. These natural ingredients come together to create a tea that both boosts the immune system and burns fat. The guava-pineapple-lemon flavour of this tea is a pleasure to drink and in addition keeps you feeling healthy and slim, making Slim and Slender an instant favourite.”
“Green Rooibos is combined with fig pieces, carrot bits, lemon granulate, ground ivy herb, orange peel, and chrysanthemum leaves to create a wonderfully refreshing tangerine flavour. Those that love the combination of citrus and tea will think they are dreaming after trying this blend.”
Note: I know what you’re thinking… “Geez, after Linds has written this nice post I sure hope Teaopia sends her some other kinds of yummy tea to sample.” Oh you silly peaches, come on now! Stop that… you’re making me blush!
