It is that time of year when we phase out our “winter” teas to make room for the summer teas.? Gingerbread House and? Nutcracker Sweet are on this list.? In addition the Gopaldara First Flush Darjeeling is almost gone and the Next First Flush will arrive probably in June.? The Ume Shiso has been discontinued by the supplier.
? Get ’em while they last!
We get a lot of questions like “what is the helathiest tea?”? We typically recommend people find the teas that they like and drink them regularly.? 4-6 cups per day? is recommended to get the maximum helath benefits.? ? The is a recent article on Canada.com whcih provides a nice summary of health benefits by “color” of tea.
? Some quotes from that article include:
? “Most people don’t drink enough to get the kinds of results seen in research studies”
“like its greener kin, black tea contains antioxidants”
“To get the most of tea’s benefits, drink it freshly brewed, rather than bottled. Let tea steep for a few minutes to release the catechins”
It is a nice read and supports the consensus that all teas are good for you in different ways.? It is great to have something that tastes good AND is good for you!
For those waiting, our Dragonwell Organic, Jasmine Downey Pearls, and Camomile are all back in stock.
? Both locations.
I mentioned about world events in the last Souvia Newsletter.? I have just received a letter from the Kenya Tea Development Association with an update on the situation there.? The KTDA produces over 60% of Kenyan Teas.? They indicate that production was interrupted at in their facilities for only three days.? In short, they beleive there will be no disruption to supply.? Good news!
