When the temperature drops on the East Coast of Canada this time of year, our beverage choice naturally changes from ice cold lemonade to hot cozy tea. Not only does it warm the body and soul, but tea brings many additional benefits as well. Nova Scotia’s fall and winter seasons bring with it cold and flu season and quite often the best cure is a piping hot cup of herbal tea.

Since teas discovery by Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 BC, after a tea leaf fell into a bowl of hot water he was drinking, the world has been brewing and enjoying tea in many flavors. Tea leaves are grown in some of the world’s most exotic places, such as Kenya, India and Sri Lanka.

Health Benefits of Tea

All tea leaves contain flavonoids which act as antioxidants in the body, having a positive impact on some chronic diseases such as certain cancers and cardiovascular disease. Also, theanine, a distinctive amino acid which helps to strengthen the immune system against viruses and infections is found in the majority of loose leaf tea leaves. Black tea also contains a natural source of fluoride helping to maintain oral health and a high Bone Mass Density.

Brewed tea is one of the world’s healthiest beverages, second only to water; as it has no fat, no salt no calories, and it is free of preservatives and additives.
