The Art of Drinking Tea

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 102

There are several ways of drinking tea. We can drink tea in a ritual way, like any of the other traditional tea drinking nations. We can drink tea from a nice China tea-cup set while listening to music, or in complete silence and in a relaxed environment. We can drink tea in the company of our best friends or by ourselves enjoying the deepest connection with our soul. There is a positive impact on our soul, and therefore on our body too, of the tea drinking preparation process itself.

Nobody knows the origin of the habit of drinking tea exactly, but there is one definite thing and that is that drinking tea is really popular all over the world. The biggest tea drinkers are the Chinese and Indians, in those countries tea drinking rituals are performed according to strict rules. If you look closely at the skin of these nations' women, they have beautiful spotless skin as a result of regularly drinking tea (among other healthy habits as well).

Do it with style! In Europe, many people love this heartwarming drink, but most of them use tea as a natural herbal remedy or medicine or as a stimulant. In fact, even the simplest types of tea - chamomile or rose hip - can be an effective tool in the prevention and treatment of a variety of diseases, and at the same time can act as a stimulant. The ritual of tea drinking is much more than just those practical functions (stimulant, etc.); the point is that the effect of the tea drinking ritual happens on a physical and a psychological level too.

Coffee or tea? There is no doubt that the passion for coffee has its own beauty, and even in some ways - of course in moderation- can help maintain health. Why is tea still a better choice? There are many arguments in its favor.

It is true that early in the morning both tea and coffee can be equally pleasant, but the stimulant effect of coffee is activated really quickly (your heart rate increases, you become more alert) but at the same time this effect fades away as quickly as it came (after just an hour or so you would probably have to drink your next coffee). On the other hand, tea has much slower and longer lasting effects on the human body. Coffee makes you hyperactive, while tea knows exactly what your body needs. In the morning it makes you alert, during the day it helps in concentration, at night it makes you feel relaxed. In the meantime tea makes your immune system stronger and improves the performance of your brain.

Additionally if you select a certain type of tea you can even enhance your mental and physical well-being.

What kind of tea should we drink? If you do not want to be over stimulated, black tea is the best choice. Apart from its stimulant effect there are antioxidants in it that help in preserving the health of your teeth.

Green tea has a strong stimulant effect, even if the taste is not as strong as black tea; it has many health's enhancing properties. It reduces the risk of heart disease, helps prevent infections, it's a diuretic, detoxifying and digestive stimulant. Green tea consumption is highly recommended in the case of high blood pressure, high bad cholesterol levels and in some cases it helps reduce some allergic symptoms.

Fruit tea can be a mixture of different types of fruits and flower pieces and there are countless different flavor combinations on the market. They do not contain any caffeine and there are no special major health benefits from this tea, but they are very delicious.

Herbal tea is made of different parts of herbal plants and hot water. The beneficial health effects and blessings of domestic herbs are well-known for everybody. Other countries' herbal teas will improve your immune system, bowel function and cell metabolism. The main advantage of herbal teas is that they are really tasty without any additional flavoring, and children can also consume them due to their lack of caffeine.
