The 'tradition' of drinking tea dates back hundreds (if not thousands) of years in the past. Apart from being healthy, tea is also really tasty.

It is becoming really popular, especially with people that need an energy boost or those that wish to lose a couple of pounds. That sort of tea uses unoxidized leaves, meaning that once the leaves are picked, they get heated up, which gets them rid of the oxidizing enzymes. The green tea is really good when one needs antioxidants, so this is one extremely healthy alternative. Some green teas are heavily scented with flowers or are mixed with fruits in order to create flavored teas. This type of coffee has just 5% - 10% the caffeine that is in a cup of coffee. Green tea is also good for maintaining a healthy cholesterol level and for good teeth and skin.

YAY for ROOIBOS! Pronounced (ROY BOSS). I am an expert as I am from South Africa! This is a great caffeine free tea that we were given as young children. Great as is, or with sugar and milk or just honey. SO many ways to enjoy it!

When we were in China, our host insisted that Oolong tea is the reason the Chinese stay thin. He also insisted that Americans drink too much coffee and cannot appreciate tea. :(

Leigh, When I get to PGH I expect an introduction to Rooibos! :)

I have never been much of an herbal tea drinker. I don't know enough about them, so I enjoyed your post about the different kinds. The Rooibos sounds interesting. I'll have to see if our grocery store carries it. Thanks for sharing!
