Time For a Tea Party

I am sure you have seen all the news articles about the health benefits of drinking tea. I love the web page Real Age. It is written by Drs. Oz and Roizen. I like it because as a health care professional myself, I think the advice there is honest, practical and based on scientific findings and not just promotional in nature.

There are several postings there about the health benefits of drinking tea. There has been an abundance of writings about the benefits of drinking green tea. Some of the studies suggest that drinking green tea on a regular basis will help you to maintain your memory, improve your blood pressure and decrease your risk for developing cancer. There are some that suggest that drinking green tea can even help you to maintain a healthy weight although that link has not been as strongly proven as the others.

But just recently I read that black tea also has some nice health benefits, especially for women. It turns out that drinking black tea can reduce a woman's risk of developing ovarian cancer. And drinking black tea also has been shown to reduce the risk, for both men and women, of developing Parkinson's Disease.

So, while just drinking tea because it tastes good is incentive enough for plenty of people, there are now more good reasons to enjoy this health improving drink.

And if you are looking for some really good tea to enjoy while you are reaping all the health benefits it has to offer, check out Liberteas studio on ArtFire. There are several blends to choose from and they all sound yummy to me. The pictures in this post are all from Liberteas studio as well. From top to bottom they are: Masterpiece Chai Spiced Black Tea, Breakfast in Bed Flavored Black Tea and Potpourri Gunpowder Green Tea. If you click on the pictures it will take you to them in Liberteas ArtFire Studio


  1. I love tea so much! It really helped me get over my diet coke "addiction" and is wonderful when I feel like eating but am not really hungry. Thanks for sharing =)
