One of the first things I had to learn when blending various different tea types, were the different temperatures of water I would need to use for each tea type. I spent several years working and managing a national tea company before I truly understood and became comfortable with blending my teas to ensure I would always brew an amazingly delicious cup of tea.

3 Reasons You Should Be Drinking Green Tea

Aloycia Woods6 comments

Most people have not yet adapted to the taste of green teas, but the truth is green teas are filled with health benefits and a variety of flavor profiles, that even a non-tea drinker can discover at least one which they can enjoy. However, the main caveat of consuming green tea is the many health benefits in every cup. Being a part of the loose leaf tea community for many years, I have had the joy of introducing many newcomers to the loose leaf tea world. And, while tea consumption is second in the world to drinking water, many have not yet discovered this incredibly healthy beverage. 

The 3 reasons you should drink loose leaf teas...  

  • A study was done with male participants who took 375-milligrams of green tea capsules for 12 weeks daily and found that it significantly reduced the “bad” cholesterol while increasing the absorption of “good” cholesterol.
  • Truth be told, most people don’t drink green tea because they love the taste. They drink it because they read that it helps with weight loss maintenance. When you really understand the benefits of drinking Green tea, you will discover that it's actually considered a “superfood”. Studies have shown that green tea effectively aids in weight loss due to its properties, in addition to a healthy diet.
  • Diabetes is something that our society is plagued with more than ever today. There is some evidence showing that drinking green tea can actually prevent diabetes.

    One study found that Japanese adults who drank more than six cups of green tea a day had a much lower risk (33 percent) of developing type 2 diabetes than those who drank a cup or less a day.

There are many more health benefits to consuming loose leaf teas, too many to mention; this is why Yoteas has embarked on a mission to help individuals 'cultivate, healthy conscious living, one brew, one sip at a time.'

Having A Relationship With Loose Leaf Tea:

Aloycia Woods2 comments

 

Consuming loose leaf tea is different for everyone because everyone's reason and relationship with consuming tea vary. Why does it vary? People may begin drinking tea for health reasons, social reasons or they're simply lovers of tea consumption, sometimes it's simply the many varieties and flavors that you can experience, which can be subjective. But, those who are consumers of loose leaf teas are literally hooked on the experience of watching the leafs open as they brew or the various colors and aromas within each brew depending on the particular tea blend. Let's face it, when we brew loose leaf teas, it's environmentally healthier for the tea consumer versus it's less flavorful neighbor tea bags.

However, what makes the loose leaf tea relationship and experience so special is it's health benefits, the ability to steep each brew more than once, and the endless flavor and blend options. Whether you prefer having a relationship with the flavors of black teas, a smooth, earthy green, or maybe a flavorful blend of various herbs, you'll receive a lot of the same benefits and appreciate every sip. Here's the deal, even though loose leaf tea leaves may all contain different levels of caffeine, what many don't know is, they also contain an amino acid called L-Theanine, which research has shown promotes and has a positive impact on our overall ability to remain relaxed and calm. Visit Us And Browse Our Selections

Aren't you ready for your cuppa-YoTeas...???
