The humble ‘cuppa’ is not only good for you, with a little imagination, it can be used as wonderful presents for family and friends.

No longer the domain of Grandma’s, tea is now popular amoung all age groups, thanks to the opening of wonderful stores like T2!

Tea is full of anti-oxidants and can be so much more than just a plain black tea. There are hundreds of blends and for those who don’t usually enjoy a black tea based drink, there are wonderful flower/fruit blends they could sip.

Drinking tea helps protect the body from free-radical damage and can help protect you from the following health issues:-

Heart Disease:- One cup of black tea per day can help to the lining of the arteries softer and more flexible, aiding in the reduction of blood presure and the risk of heart attack.

 Osteoporosis:- Elderly women who are tea drinker have a higher bone density. Partly due to the alkalining ability of tea to help balance the body and reduce calcium being leached from bones.

Cancer:- 3 cups of Tea per day can help reduce the risk of gatrick, oeophageal, skin, prostrate and ovarian cancer.

Weight Loss:- Green tea increases your metabolic rate, encouraging the burning of calories.

ALL great reasons to take up tea drinking if you are not already hooked like I am!
