    The New Year is Heading Our Way

    It’s that time again, when the old year is coming to a close and the new years resolutions begin to tumble out. What are you determined to change about your life? Will you stick with your resolutions in 2010?

    Making changes and sticking with them has a better chance of survival if you have a plan. For instance,if you resolve to give up caffeine this year and coffee or tea is your favorite beverage test the waters of other beverages before you make this commitment.

    A tea drinker has a bit of an advantage here. Switching from caffeinated teas to herbals or tisanes can make the transition easier and the chances of success more real. Since tisanes are not made from the leaves of the camellia seninsis plant or bush (which do contain caffeine) they do not contain caffeine. Likewise herbal teas are made from the leaves or even the roots of plants that contain no caffeine. Teas are often made from flowers such as hibiscus or chamomile and frequently these have good benefits. Bits of berries, spices or even coconut will add flavor to the tisanes or herbal tea.

    I suggest you do some experimenting in 2009 as the year winds down to prepare for cleansing of caffeine in 2010. Do a little research and find out if the new beverage has any health benefits. Many or even most herbal teas and tisanes do.

    You will find many articles on your-cuo-of-tea that will point you in the right direction when it comes to herbals or tisanes.You may want to read this article.

    As for myself, I’m one of the fortunate few who do not lie awake at night because I’ve had a cup of tea just before bed. I will not have to give up my much loved Earl Grey or Darjeeling tea. I will continue to have an occasional cup of chamomile tea before bed but it will still be occasional.

    My resolution should be weight loss, but can I reach this goal? That will be my challenge. I better take my own advice and come up with a doable plan.

    Never heard of Olive Leaf Tea?

    Never heard or experienced the taste olive leaf tea? You are not alone. This pleasant tasting tea is not a common staple in tea houses or stores. But, it should be. The olive leaf has been a diet staple in many Mediterranean cultures for centuries. These same cultures enjoy a low incidence of viruses, heart conditions and cancers. We all have heard researchers, scientists and nutritionists promote the health benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet.

    What they do not tell you is that you can enjoy the health benefits of the olive leaf in a wonderfully pleasant tea as well. For those that are counting their fat grams and calories, this is a way to enjoy the health benefits of the essential oils in olive leaf without the fat. (Will this fit in with my New Years Reslution Plan?)

    Since ancient times, olive leaf tea has been given to help fight many ailments of the times. The British gave the olive leaf herbal tea to colonists and soldiers that were sick after returning from a tropical climate. The stories about the improvements in these individuals have promoted modern day science to research these claims.
