National Tea Day

National Tea Day is April 21. Here are 5 reasons why we should celebrate tea every day:

  1. Tea contains polyphenols. These antioxidants help bolster the body against oxidative stress and associated pathologies like inflammation, coronary heart disease and cancer.
  2. Tea helps to give you focus and mental clarity. It contains caffeine and the amino acid L-Theanine, which when consumed in combination can reduced mental fatigue, while increasing reaction time and working memory.
  3. Tea relaxes and calms us. The act of pouring and enjoying tea can help to wash away stress and settle us into our day or evening.
  4. Tea is exciting! Whether you like green, black, white, oolong, puerh, or botanical teas, there are hundreds of varieties and countless blends to keep you intrigued and enlivened!
  5. And last, but certainly not least, tea brings us together. Tea has traditionally been a way to pass time and relax with our friends and family. Although we cannot share immediate space right now, tea can make you feel connected. Have a virtual tea time with your pals or family – tea inspires communication and sharing, and there’s nothing like the bond that can be made over a cup of tea.
