Your Tea Purchases

Tea purchased in bottles is often sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. Many articles have been written warning this ingredient causes health problems. The FDA has vacillated in its position on high fructose corn syrup. First saying it is not a natural product and then saying at certain times it can be labeled natural.

Read more about this in the article in the Food Navigator here. %3D

Make your food and drink choices for you and your families knowing what it is you are buying.


Searching For The Meaning Of Tea

The meaning of tea is a documentary film in DVD format presented by Dragon Films. It can be purchased on the web site that also shows short clips form the film.

This tea journey spans the earth in quest of tea customs as well as the meaning of tea. Each culture has its own specific relationship with the healthful beverage.

Thanks to "tealoverdenise", a fellow tea drinker, for bringing this very interesting DVD to our attention.

Check out a few clips here Dragon Films website:


Another Tea Gadget

If you love new gadgets like I do, follow this link to a new tea cup gadget that requires no stirring.

What will they come up with next? I can't wait to find out.


A Reminder

Just a reminder we have implemented a new feature on our site.

I think those of you who want the latest information on tea and health from all over the world will be pleased. Google gathers news from over 4000 sources. We are going to keep you up to date on green tea health benefits through the Google news feed.

Now you will make one stop for several articles on green tea instead of investing time typing, searching assessing and moving on. Let your-cup-of-tea bring the latest news to you.
