It don’t matter if you’re black or white!

Alright, let’s get drunk! Off tea that is. C’mon people I’m at work!

If you didn’t know this, green tea, black tea, white tea and just about any other color kind of tea is made up of healthful and beneficial components.

Take the white tea for example. It contains the most antioxidants over any other kind of tea. And test-tube studies have shown it to block DNA mutations that help to trigger tumor formations. If I were you, I down this bad boy fast!

Another great tea and, an ever so popular one, is the green tea. Shown to prevent many forms of cancer, it also  helps to lower cholesterol and boost the body’s immune system. wooo hooo!

Black tea. Now although the name refers to the color of its leaves, the actual color of the tea itself is a rich amber hue. This proactive tea helps to lower your risk of heart disease and colon cancer. It also inhibits bacteria that causes cavities and stinky breath. I say, if you don’t have time to drink the stuff, pop a few leaves in your mouth and chomp away.

The last tea I’m going to introduce you to, is the pu-erh (poo-air) tea. This dark red, earthy flavored tea is delicious, and actually considered a delicacy in China. Of all teas it is said to be the most oxidized and can only improve with age, just like wine! So as I said, let’s get drunk! 😉

So, drink up my little tea lovers. And as always, enjoy!

xoxo

    Green tea is flat out, delicious. Because I don’t drink coffee, sodas or coke, I have found that tea is the perfect alternative for a “mild” dosage of “pick me up.” It’s natural and doesn’t affect the body the same way unhealthy sodas do. Thanks for the extra information…I had no idea teas were so helpful in combating cancer!
