Anyone that knows me well knows I love my green tea. I find it soothing and relaxing. It’ my go-to beverage instead of coffee.
Andrew E. Carol recently published a delightful report on the health benefits of drinking tea in the New York Times.
Eleven studies with almost 23,000 people found for every 3 cups of green tea daily, risk of depression decreases 37%.
That’s good news as the season changes and some people suffer from unexpected sadness.
More cheerful news includes your risk of developing diabetes, stroke and other cardiovascular risk factors also decreases.
And research says it’s good for your body too. I don’t drink any soda or coffee, which I liken to pouring mud into an engine.
My absolute personal favorite tea brand is YOGI tea. I love it, and it comes in decaf and a variety of inspiring flavors.
I also love that a different cute fortune is attached to the end of each tea bag.
And I’m a fan of the company philosophy.
The bright varying tea packages can also be organized by color in a kitchen drawer.
If you have trouble sleeping you’ll love Yogi Bedtime for Sleep.
Soon it’ll be time for a roaring fireplace, so enjoy your soothing tea time because “a relaxed mind is a creative mind.”
