Another great article that the Specialty Tea Institute has sent its certified tea specialists. This one was written by a global company that does emphasize China. Interesting that they showcase matcha, even though matcha type tea started in China around the 6th century, people today really think of Japan for matcha tea. Japan also has the best matcha tea.
Some of the health benefits are anti-aging, eliminating toxins, cancer prevention, weight loss, increasing energy and stamina, calming effect, improving immune functioning, promoting gastric health, lowering cholesterol and blood sugar, and preventing gum disease and osteoporosis. The article goes into detail about each health benefit.
Well this weekend I had my vendor event that was the farthermost from where I live and the next day had an event the closest to where I live. Meet some really great people at both events. The last event got me thinking. I had a lot of misinformation stated at my last event. I see the need for more education so people can better understand what tea is and what it is not. I also believe people have a misconception why I have stated what I have, so I have decided to explain why I state what I do about tea. This is not a negative on what is not tea. This is a very evasive post, but my Thursday post will help and start to clear up. My intent is not to offend, just give the knowledge I have been given and to make things clearer, well except for this post.
Monday I am happy to have received my tea from Japan. I got some matcha and some matcha tea scoops. I will be adding this to the website soon.
