My favorite quote in the in the whole article is
Brew up a heart-healthy potion
No magic is needed to brew up a cup of green or black tea. Drinking one to three cups of tea per day may help lower your risk of heart problems, reports the AHA. For example, it’s linked to lower rates of angina and heart attacks.”
The other tips are very wise also. If you have a history of heart issues doing a few if all of the tips will help you greatly. It is easier to prevent than to treat with medicine most health issues.
Hopefully, this gets resolved soon. If you have not had a really good Darjeeling tea you should. It is complex and has a muscatel quality to most Darjeeling teas. I hope this gets resolved because it is the time for the first flush plucking and the tea is suppose to catch a good price at market. I talked about this in a blog post before. The weather has cooperated to bring a high quality tea to be grown in the Darjeeling area. It would be a shame to waste the tea.
