Ah, the sweet aroma of tea dancing through our home – the kind that makes you sigh in contentment. And with International Tea Day just around the corner on May 21, it’s the perfect time to spill the chai (pun intended!) on our family’s tea habits, health perks, and all-time favourites.
Generational Tea Bonds
Now, imagine our Persian family reunion, the shared glasses of tea making their grand entrance on a silver tray after a year-long hiatus. What I wouldn’t give to just do that one more time. According to a recent study, six in 10 of us are basically copying our tea habits from our parents.
Diverse Health Perks
Now, let’s talk about tea being the Beyonce of beverages – it’s got something for everyone. Dietitian, Dr. Carrie Ruxton, from the Tea Advisory Panel – www.teaadvisorypanel.com – explains how it caters to all ages, from keeping your brain on fleek to giving your gut a spa day.
She says: “As well as being popular across the ages, tea provides distinct benefits for each generation. Studies show that working age adults who drink tea improve their mental focus and memory, while older adults benefit from lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease. Even children over the age of four years – normally given milk or soft drinks – can get a health advantage by switching to milky unsweetened tea since it contains natural fluoride which protects teeth.”
Oh, did I mention the Persian touch in our tea rituals? H’s family’s tea-time is filled with cultural richness. Persian tea is served ‘hot’ and consumed ‘hot’. You need to cautiously sip from cups rehearsing a “handle-with-care” routine, To me, it was a rite of passage and a scorching delight, accompanied by an array of shirini (sweet treats) of course!
Gut Health and More
On to green tea which isn’t just for your Insta aesthetic; it’s actually good for your gut. Say bye-bye to digestive drama with this brew, unless you’re like me and just feel a bit sick after drinking it.
Tea, Brain and Beyond
Dr Gill Jenkins spills the scientific tea on the combo of polyphenols, caffeine, and L-theanine.
She says: “The secret is the natural elixir of polyphenols, caffeine and L-theanine which have been shown to influence the brain from adolescence to old age. Indeed, in the new poll commissioned by the Tea Advisory Panel, more than eight in 10 adults say drinking tea helps to improve their mood, while four in 10 claim it keeps them calm.”
Tea for Mood and Energy
But wait, tea isn’t just a liquid hug; it’s a boost for your mood and energy. Over eight in 10 adults agree – and for once. And then there’s the aroma. It’s not just a smell; it’s a nostalgic trip. More than half feel cosy, happy and relaxed, and a third start daydreaming about their parents. It’s like a sip of time travel.
Nutrilic Slim Tea: A Detox Delight
Nutrilic Sim Tea: This 30-day journey promises not just a detox, but is a full-blown party for your tastebuds. That’s the Nutrilic Slim Tea experience.
The Taste Test
First things first – the taste. I approached this detox tea with a dash of skepticism. Can something that claims to be detox be delicious? Turns out, yes! Unlike some other green teas that taste like your sipping on a garden (not in a good way), Nutrilic Slim Tea has a unique flavour that’s a fusion of refreshing and subtly sweet, making it a treat for the palate.
The Energising Effect
Now let’s talk energy levels. As someone who just rekindled their relationship with the gym post-lockdown, the Nutrilic Slim Tea has been a game-changer. It’s not the jittery kind of energy you get after Body Pump, meaning gym selfies are a no-go; it’s more like a gentle nudge that says, “Hey, let’s do this today.”
The Detox Magic
Of course, detox! When it comes to teas claiming to detox, Nutrilic has me pleasantly surprised. A week into the 30-day program, I’ve noticed a decrease in my appetite and a subtle reduction in bloating. It’s like my digestive system finally got the memo saying, “I’m on holiday from heavy meals!”
The Convenience Factor
Let’s not forget the convenient little tea infuser mesh ball that comes with it. Pop it in, pour hot water, and you’re good to go. It’s like the tea gods heard my busy mornings crying for a hassle-free brew.
As I sip my Nutrilic Slim Tea, I can confidently say it’s not just a detox tea; it’s a mood lifter, an energy booster, and a surprisingly tasty addition to my daily routine. If you’re on the fence about detox teas, give Nutrilic a shot – your taste buds and well-being will thank you. Here’s to sipping into wellness, one cup at a time!
