Tea: Drink to Your Health

Tea has been called “The Heavenly Herb” in China. For those trying to enhance their health, there is no better beverage. Just like Chinese herbalism in general, tea drinking can be customized for your health needs. For example, if you run warm, cooling green tea is a good choice. If you’re frequently chilly, brew up some ginger tea. Those with high cholesterol can make Pu-erh tea part of their lifestyle approach to treatment.

Of course, tea is not only healthy but also delicious. Consider trying premium teas from vendors that import directly from tea groves in China, Taiwan and other tea countries.
