*White tea explodes onto the skin care scene*

Green tea has always gotten all the publicity for being the best tea to help our bodies fight free radicals. It is certainly a good choice. We know it is rich in antioxidants.

Now scientists are realizing white tea which has even more of the anti oxidants or polyphenols than green tea is another excellent choice for both beauty care and physical well being.

Dr. Andrew Weil a noted physician educated at Harvard Medical School is unique in the world of medicine. He advocates integrative medicine, or both natural and chemical therapies.

On the subject of skin care and anti aging he recommends products containing Silver Tip White Tea as a defense for our skin.

I don't know about you, but I'm going to start reading those labels.


*A New York City activity for children*

If your family will be visiting the city during October 13th through December 1, 2007.

Disney on Broadway and the Waldorf -Astoria Hotel will be presenting a tea party based on the well known musical Mary Poppins. All ages have been considered in the activities planned. The whole family will be able to enjoy this.

Tea etiquette will be explained, a sing along of Mary Poppins music is scheduled and children will even be invited to decorate tea cookies from the Mary Poppins theme. The younger crowd will be offered pretend dress up clothes.

Are you planning to be in New York City over Thanksgiving? I suggest making reservations now. Call the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel at 212-872-1275 for reservations.

The tea party will be offered every Saturday.

It's sure to be just your cup of tea.

Pricing $22.00 for children and $35.00 for adults


*Whirlwind party season heading our way*

We are quickly heading into that whirlwind season of parties from Halloween to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, through New Years eve and on to Valentines day and St Patrick's day.
