The Art Of Tea Blending

Aloycia Woods1 comment
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.'

Tough Times And Tea Time:

Aloycia Woods

To Our YoTeas Family,

It's hard to fathom what we are presently experiencing as a country and globally. Covid-19 showed up with a vengeance and has now inflicted over a million and claimed thousands of lives. With so much information out there from the media and the news, it's difficult to decipher what's real and what's false. But, what we know for certain is, we've been attacked by an invisible enemy. The global response has varied so vastly, with some hoarding at the grocery stores with others plainly disregarding the social distancing and stay at home orders. Clearly, this is not something we were prepared for, but we must grasp that this is a serious situation that we will not come out of it the same. Humanity will never be the same...

But what we must ensure to help us survive is that we're practicing healthy habits such as, proper hand-washing, sanitizing areas that are frequently touched and keeping our immune systems strong to protect ourselves from this invisible and unpredictable enemy. Some of what medical doctors are saying will help minimize our exposure and strengthen our immune systems is improve our quality of sleep, avoid tobacco, consume less alcohol, improve your gut health, become more physically active, soak up the sunshine(vitamin-D), reduce your stress level, consume a daily supplement, vitamin C, Zinc, Elderberry, fruits(oranges, lemon, blueberries), lots of liquids to include, alkaline water and hot teas. As we continue to experience unprecedented loss of life and be attacked by this virus please, Visit YoTeas To Learn More About The Health Benefits Of Loose Leaf Teas 

Thank You For Your Continued Support,

From The YoTeas Family To You and your Family, Please Stay Safe and Healthy.

Why Loose Leaf Teas???

Aloycia Woods

We live in a culture where most people love the social habit of coffee consumption. To most, tea consumption is simply placing a tea bag in a cup of hot water, adding some sugar or honey particularly when they don't feel good. Not the same excitement as sitting in a coffee shop and drinking a fresh cup of coffee while socializing with friends, or having a business meeting. The association between the social aspect of tea versus coffee is part of what drives most towards choosing coffee over tea. But In recent years, many are discovering the excitement in the variety of teas they can choose from and the endless flavor profiles and health benefits in consuming loose leaf teas, especially green teas. When you truly begin to explore and experiment with the different varieties of loose leaf teas, the excitement can quickly grow. 

Why would you choose loose leaf teas? Outside of its obvious health benefits, the many combinations you can choose, create and blend together to brew your perfect of cup of tea are endless. And just for the record, tea bags often include ingredients you'd probably rather not ingest. However, If you would like to begin exploring the world of loose leaf teas Visit Us At YoTeas and experience why so many are now turning to loose leaf teas as their daily beverage of choice.

The Green Tea Craze:

Aloycia Woods

What is the Green Tea craze all about??? For centuries, all tea was considered green tea. But, green tea is purely and simply the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, which all teas originate, and once it's steeped in hot water...you have your delicious cup of healthiness. There was a time when Green tea leaves did not go through the oxidation process so it was tea in its most natural form. This version of the green tea leaf is still enjoyed around the world today as are many other versions of the same tea leaf. However, over centuries, there were different forms of green tea introduced as the world unfolded in its discovery of the tea leaf. Oolong and black teas were created much later after green tea's discovery.

Note: black tea is a fermented version of green tea and Oolong is semi-fermented.

The Western world is still trying to understand the variations of green tea because they are lovers of black teas...On the other hand, the Eastern part of the world are still lovers of the amazing variety of green tea flavors...

Although more research is needed, medical news today states, recent studies have shown green tea can potentially have positive effects on everything from weight loss to liver disorders, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Don't take this cup of Green beverage lightly...There's more beyond your brewed cup of loose leaf tea!!!
