Start your morning right! Or your afternoon, or your evening, or any time of the day! Because drinking tea doesn't discriminate the time of day. Tea is a ritual.
We have teacup and saucers, teapots, tea infusers, mugs, coasters, and more!
Why do we love tea? Well for starters, tea is good for us! We love knowing we are being good to ourselves. That we are being healthy. Among the numerous health benefits of tea, tea is naturally packed with antioxidants, which will protect you from free radicals. This means that they boost your immune system, and are fantastic for keeping you looking fresh (thanks to anti-ageing properties) and feeling great. Even though, tea is not a miracle cure, these antioxidants might also help protect you against cancer. Other studies say that drinking tea could help reduce the risk of cardiovascular and degenerative diseases such as heart attacks by lowering the level of cholesterol. For this, it is worth keeping on sipping tea.
Tea gives us energy and revitalisation. Tea is perfect to wake you up in the morning and keep you going throughout the day. If you too would like to feel more alert, tea is the best choice over coffee, which has caffeine that often makes us feel agitated and overly alert. We love enjoying different flavours, from sweet ceylon with vanilla to flowery jasmine silver needle, without worrying about the calories. As a practically calorie-free drink, it is a great substitute to sugar-packed soft drinks. Also, some of the teas, such as green tea, might be a great aid in helping people burn calories and kick starts your metabolism rate naturally. And while drinking a few cups of tea each morning won’t have you looking like a bodybuilder any time soon, it can help you improve your endurance at the gym and build muscle. You know what to quench your thirst with now!
Tea can also help reduce stress. Tea has been found to work as an anti-depressant and helps reduce tension. Meaning that taking a cup next time you’re feeling a little low might just help boost your mood. Don’t we say "tea time, me time"? Let it go with a cuppa. Tea is compared to water for hydration as it contributes to our overall fluid needs. Whether hot or on ice in a scorching hot summer day, it will replace any fluids you’ve lost through sweating.
Finally, tea allows us to socialise. We love meeting up with friends around a cup of tea. Whether you plan to organise a fancy afternoon tea party or to share some gossips with your best friend at home, drinking tea is a great way to catch up with friends. Whether it is Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, Ceylon, Lipton, Dilmah, Green Tea, Red Tea, Yellow Tea, Chamomile, Peppermint, Blackcurrant, Oolong, White Tea, Dark Tea, Rooibos, Lemon balm, Ginger, Hibiscus, Sage, or any of the other myriad herbal teas available, it's time to rest and have a cuppa, and enjoy the benefits.
