If you are one of the few who are not coffee drinkers, you know the joy of a steaming cup of lovely hot tea. For me, tea is my comfort. I love trying new teas and having friends over to sample tea.

In fact, I am probably one of the few Americans who say, let’s meet for a cup of tea!

I love my several cups of daily tea.

So I was excited when I got introduced to The Art of Tea. They are a company specializing in everything about tea.

DID YOU KNOW THIS ABOUT TEAS?

The term herbal tea is actually a misnomer. Teas have leaves from Camellia Sinensis. If the drink does not have that composition of leaves it is called a tisane.

So tisanes are the fruity and herbal drinks. They are not categorized as tea. So all this time I have been drinking herbal concoctions thinking they are indeed tea!

But I will take tisane. I like the sound of it! So will you join me for a cup of tea or tisane?

Let’s have a cup of tea. Please click here.

THE DIFFERENCE OF CAFFEINE BETWEEN COFFEE AND TEA

So tea starts out as higher in caffeine. But dried tea uses less than dried coffee. Tea actually has half the amount of caffeine. And of course, the longer the tea is steeped, the higher the caffeine level becomes. Tea leaves contain an amino acid called theanine.

This creates a sensation with the caffeine of tea that is different from caffeine of coffee in that it does not stimulate than allow crashing. Rather, Instead it is a more slow releasing stimulant that is a balanced effect. You don’t get the rush of a caffeine high. It stays with you longer and less of a rush.

That way it feels more balanced and gradual. It gives a more calming stimulating effect.

GIFT TEA  

The Art of Tea has many options for gifts.  For instance, gift certificates, gift packs, and also sending tea once a month! It is really perfect for tea lovers. And a gift that will bring great smiles.

Or better yet try one option for yourself. Go on, you deserve it!

THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE TEA

For each cup of tea, add one teaspoon of dried tea. Do not over heap the teaspoon or it might become bitter. Always use boiled water.

After you have steeped the perfect cup of tea, take off your shoes, sink into your favorite chair, and just savor the moment and the flavor! Tea is amazing in its range of comfort.

I wish you great moments of quiet and sharing!

  1. As a tea lover who also enjoys tisane (who knew…) I WILL join you in a cup of tisane. I was turned against coffee and tobacco both at a very early age by my mother who used too much of both. Her breath would stop a train! So I never developed either of those expensive, unhealthy habits, leaving me more time and money to fill with other expensive unhealthy habits.
    I do love Darjeeling or Ceylon tea with cream… but I don’t generally drink them as this is still too much caffeine for my old joints – try to stay anti-inflammatory. So it is white tea or cinnamon tea, mostly (no cream – doesn’t work with green or tisane IMHO.

    Can you recommend a good electric pot (or other appliance) for North American use that delivers water at the required best temperature for great tea? I tire of playing games with boiling water, cold water and a thermometer, and I hope there is a more civilized, 21st century approach…
    Thanks for a great post

  2. This is such a lovely post because I, like you, am one of those who says “let’s get together for tea:. I love tea and find it very relaxing. Especially before bed time.

    I just read recently about all the advantages of green tea. There are so many health benefits around drinking green tea that I was not aware of before. I like the information you provide on tea steeping. Another thing I read was there is a right and wrong way to steep tea for the antioxidant benefits of it.

    What are some other products you will be writing about soon? I look forward to reading more helpful information from you.

    Thank you,
    Yvette

    1. Hello Yvette! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Well, I think we just need to get together for tea!
      I am convinced that the natural world is there for us to heal. There is a huge world out there of amazing nourishing, healing teas. I am always searching for healing teas. One of my favorites is the red tea, rooibos, from South Africa. It is often used as a stomach healer and all around tonic. A similar tea, which is also a red tea is used in West Africa, that is given to anyone as soon as they have a fever.
      I could spend my days sipping tea..and in fact, grin, I do!

      You are giving me some great ideas of what next products to indeed think about. Is there anything in particular you are interested in knowing about?
      So many thanks for being here. Wishing you great joy and lovely cups of tea! ariel
