Bringing tea into your Dry January can not only help you avoid alcohol, but it can also increase the health benefits of your month-long hiatus. You may notice improvements in digestion, sleep patterns, the immune system, and your palate. Below is a list of some of the benef ..read more

How to Buy Premium Tea Online Understandably, finding an online tea retailer can be daunting! It’s easy to become overwhelmed with the variety of options and crowdsourced websites offering reviews. How should you make choices when you can’t actually taste the product first? Note: If you live in a big city (or a smaller town that’s graced with an awesome tea merchant!), you can find tea merchants where you can smell and actually taste some teas before you buy. We highly recommend doing this. But if this isn’t an option: start small. Get sample quantities first before investing in larger quanti ..read more

A Rare Treat: Sun Dried Teas from Yunnan Province, China
The Tea Spot | Steep it Loose
by Editor in Chief
3M ago
The story of tea begins in Yunnan, a mountainous and remote region of southwestern China. In 2737 BCE the revered Emperor Shennong (meaning “Divine Farmer”) discovered that the leaves of wild tea trees, when brewed, made an invigorating and enlivening elixir.  Folklore has it that one afternoon, Shennong sat down to take a rest under a Camellia sinensis tree and boiled some water to drink (he is credited with saving his population from the plague by mandating that all water be boiled before it was consumed). Leaves from the tea tree above him floated down into the pot of boiling water and ..read more

by Nicolette Accardi From the super-authentic stuff from Uji to the new wave of matcha masters, these powders are delicious, affordable, and approved by the pros. A piping hot cup of coffee really hits differently when you’re in a mad rush on the highway, and here’s something about waiting in the mile-long line of a McDonald’s, Dunkin’, or Starbucks drive-thru, screaming through the window for a jolt of caffeine, the legal stimulant we all so desperately crave. Sure, we’re simps for Dunkin’, but for some of us, once we get our fix, instant regret runs through our minds and, uh, our dige ..read more

Christine Byrne, MPH, RD The flavor of green tea depends on when the leaves were harvested, how and where they were grown and so much more. Green tea is extremely popular today, but its roots are literally ancient. Legend has it that green tea was first steeped in 2737 BC, when a few green tea leaves fell into an emperor’s cup of hot water. There are written records of green tea being used medicinally as far back as the Han Dynasty (206-220 AD), according to the Art of Tea, and being drunk for pleasure starting in the Tang Dynasty (600-900 AD).
