Ten Facts You Did not Know about Tea

There are only three basic types of Asian tea; Green, Black
and Oolong. All three come from the same tea plant —
Camelia sinensis. The differences between the teas result
from the way the tea leaves are plucked and processed.
Although there are three basic types of tea, there are over
3,000 varieties to choose from. Despite their name, herbal
teas are not tea at all because they do not come from the
tea plant, but from herb and spice plants.

In recent Dutch studies it was found that men who drink
black tea which contains catechins are fifty percent less
likely to die of ischemic heart disease. This occurs when
our arteries become clogged and are unable to work as they
should because of them becoming narrow.

We now know that drinking a half to two cups of tea per day
may promote fertility by inhibiting abnormalities in our
chromosomes. In a recent test 250 women drank as small as
half a cup of tea per day and their pregnancy rates were
double those who did not.

A remedy for puffy eyes is to lie in a horizontal position
and place either a tea compress or wet teabag over both eyes
and leave for about 20 minutes. The puffiness around the
eyes will amazingly vanish and your eyes will look and feel
groundbreaking new.

One way to rid your refrigerator of unpleasant smells is to
place one or two used tea bags somewhere within the fridge.
The next day any terrible smell will be gone!

A substance called Tannic acid which naturally occurs in tea
is said to help in the battle against warts. Apply a wet tea
bag to the infected area for about 15 minutes three times
daily and the wart will slowly start to shrink until it
eventually disappears.

It is known that men in Asian countries who consume green
tea have very low instances of prostate cancer. Many
prominent researchers are convinced that this is due to
green tea containing many powerful antioxidants and
preventative anti-cancer agents.

In recent Australian studies CSIRO scientists found that the
occurrence of skin cancer in laboratory mice was greatly
reduced when they were given black tea. It is thought that
polyphenols which are very strong antioxidants and are
contained in the tea are the most likely reason for this
phenomenon.

The costliest teabag ever was made for the 75′th
anniversary of the PG TIPS tea company. The bag was filled
with two hundred and eighty diamonds and expensive limited
edition tea leaves. The tea bag cost 7,500 pounds and would
be auctioned in aid of a Children’s hospital in Fantastic
Britain.

Contrary to what one might expect, Turkey is a land of tea
drinkers. Turks drink more tea per head than any other
nation, even more than the British and they are now the
world’s largest tea drinkers. The total annual consumption
of tea in Turkey is approximately 120 thousand tons whereas that of coffee is only 8 thousand tons.
