Happy New Year Tea Lovers!
Yep it’s that time of the year when we have increased a notch or three on our belts; we can’t see our feet for our tum tums, and our TV screens and our Facebook and Google Ads are inundated with advertisements telling us of the latest fad that will help us to lose 10kgs in a day. The thing is, what I am here to tell you is that Tea is not the miracle cure that will help us to lose weight immediately. With the amount of tea that I drink on a daily basis, I ought to be Victoria Beckham sized, but I’m not because I love my tea, I love my food but I just don’t like exercise so much!!
Tea does have a whole host of health benefits, but tea has to be consumed as part of a healthier lifestyle. Drinking tea alone and nothing else might help you to lose weight in the short term, but your body needs other nutrients, vitamins and minerals that it cannot gain from tea alone. Besides, just drinking tea alone and not eating any food, will make you extremely ill. I do not recommend it.
So what are the health benefits of tea? I have delivered several tea note speaking gigs where I help to explain the various health benefits and I wanted to start by telling you about Antioxidants. Or rather, this video will help to explain what they are and how they can help you if you incorporate tea as part of a healthier lifestyle.
But what about the other health benefits of tea? I created a slide presentation when I first arrived in Australia to explain the health benefits and I continue to use the slides to this day. If you click on the picture below and then click on save to download this presentation, take a look at the notes underneath each slide, this will give you more information about antioxidants and the other health benefits that you can find in tea.
One of these days I will convert the presentation into a video series but until then, pop the kettle on, make a cup of tea, sit back, relax and read through the notes as you go through the slides. I am sure that you will find them exTEAmely informaTEAve 😀
As you can see, if you take the first letter of each of my top 10 tips, what do you get? Why! MayKing Tea of course!! Enjoy and Happy New Year tea lovers!
