Summer Special-Tea

As an organic consumer, you can feel good about increasing your consumption of tea during the summer—or any time of year.
 
Exercise physiologist Bob Greene, Oprah Winfrey’s personal trainer and author of The Best Life Diet and Bob Greene’s Total Body Makeover, recommends tea as part of his Best Life Program.
 
“Tea, when consumed on its own without milk or sugar, not only tastes great but contains virtually no calories,” he says. “This means that tea is an excellent accompaniment to a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle, and to a weight-management program.”
 
Not only is tea delicious, but research shows it has significant health benefits:

  • Tea is a natural source of antioxidants called flavonoids, which help reinforce the body’s natural defenses.
  • Tea, which is naturally calorie-free, is an ideal beverage to help you reach your  daily fluid intake needs.

    This is my favorite tea whether it be summer or winter. During summer I simply place 2 tea bags in a glass pitcher and using filter water let it steep…..its fantastic cold with a few mint leaves floating in it:-)
