Soothe Your Soul with Sustainable Tea
January is National Tea Month! During these cold winter days, soothe your soul with a hot mug of sustainable tea by the fireside at The Watershed Cafe!
As you wrap your chilly fingers around a steaming cup of steeping tea, you may find instant comfort. As you inhale the leafy aromas, you may recall those quiet moments when you have been tenderly cared for by a loved one. As you take your first sip, you may immediately relax as you are warmed from the inside out.
In addition to its nostalgic characteristics, hot teas have many health benefits. According to WebMD, many teas contain high levels of antioxidants, compounds found in fruits and vegetables "known to protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. Studies show antioxidants may play a role in the management or prevention of some medical conditions, such as some cancers, macular degeneration, Alzheimer's disease, and some arthritis-related conditions," WebMD.com.
Green tea is particularly known for having high levels of antioxidants. For a fresh, lemongrassy flavor, try Organic Citron Green. If you are looking for a touch of fruit, try Green Passion with passion fruit essence and natural ginseng root. Herbal teas, such as Cranberry Hibiscus or Blueberry Acai, are very berry flavors with hints floral and are known to support immune systems.
Black tea is a unique alternative to coffee, if you are seeking something different from your everyday norm. Organic Masala Chai offers an earthy flavor spiced with cardamon, cinnamon, and ginger root. With a touch of milk and honey, Chai is a deliciously sweet and spicy cup of tea.
Drinking tea is not only good for you and your health, the teas we provide also have a positive social impact. White Lion Tea is a woman-owned company, with a focus on educating girls in Kenya.
