I am working on a collection of tea related photos. (Keep an eye out here for those later this year.) This prompted me get started right away. I set up a navy blue place mat on white table cloth with a bone china teacup and saucer set which repeats the blue. I set up a clear glass plate topped with goodies. I made Roobois with Tulis - Lemon Tree tea in my clear tea pot. This was part of a herbal tea gift set from Tea Desire. It smells and tastes great!!!
Here's a few excerpts from a Times article.
Real tea is derived from a particular plant (Camellia sinensis) and includes only four varieties: green, black, white, and oolong. Anything else (like herbal “tea”) is an infusion of a different plant and isn’t technically tea.
But what real tea lacks in variety, it makes up for with some serious health benefits. Researchers attribute tea’s health properties to polyphenols (a type of antioxidant) and phytochemicals. Though most studies have focused on the better-known green and black teas, white and oolong also bring benefits to the table. You can view the full text here.
My favorite loose tea is Roobois Chai. I've purchased some from nearly every tea company around. The Tazo Joy tea is my favorite Christmas tea.
What is your favorite tea? Leave me a comment.
At the end of the month I will choose 2 people to receive one of my 4x6 Up Close photo calendars.
