Jasmine Tea

After much testing and analyzing, I have discovered which tea is most adequate for those who need a boost in focusing:


It relaxes you in a good way by the simple fact that is reduces stress. Ask yourself, do you find your school or job environment super stressful? If your answer is yes, like me, than I have more fun facts to share.

Jasmine is an effective anti-depressant. It triggers your brain into working in a more efficient matter, a tea that not only reduces stress but cheers you up!

Jasmine tea has a strong and flavorful scent that makes you feel good, and awake. Although Jasmine has a low amount of caffeine, I found myself awake during my super 'exciting' Economics class. That should say something. I believe it's the floral flavor and the scent that stimulates your body to focus and stay positive.

Jasmine tea is arguably the healthiest tea for you, as it is part of the green tea family that are known to boost your immune system and act as a natural sun-protector for your skin. Of all the green teas out there, Jasmine is by far my favorite tea.

Process of Tea Thinking

I have been thinking about the following question for a while and finally decided to do something about it. The question is: "Which tea makes your process of thinking more effective?"

In this study, I am going to drink a different kind of tea everyday for four days. The teas include green, black, and white tea. To make it a fair run for each of these teas, I will maintain a healthy 7-8 hours of sleep, consume the same amount of tea, make the tea in it’s required temperature, and eat a healthy balanced breakfast every morning.

Since I’m a freshman attending college, this is a perfect set-up on experimenting which tea compliments our intellectualness the most. The factors I will follow in determining this are:

1. Enthusiasm towards the subject, if any
2. Resisting distractions
3. Being awake or not
4. Paying attention
5. Level of comprehending a lecture
6. Speed of your process of absorbing/understanding the material

I will post my results a week from now.

Tea of the Month

It’s finally time for me to announce the tea of the month, the tea of February 2009. Since we’re still stuck with the nasty cold winter weather, I think most of us find our immune systems slowly failing as we start coughing our throats off. Getting sick is not something you look forward to, unless your immune system is top notch and you’re one of those who never get sick. For us normal people, I assure you that you will get get sick at least once during the winter season. Popping vitamin C pills, eating healthy, and dressing as if you were going to the North Pole just doesn’t’ seem to cut it. So what do you do? You drink tea. Now why tea and what type of tea? Well that’s why I created Tea of the Month.
The Tea of the Month of February is: 

Imperial Acai Blueberry White Tea

White tea, green Rooibos, blueberries, natural acai extract, grapes, hibiscus, beetroot, rosehips and black currants.

This tea is rich with antioxidants, very soothing, and has a fruity flavor. If you like blueberries, there’s no doubt your going to love this tea. This tea will fill your entire kitchen with an amazing, blueberry-fruity scent. The best part is that is comes with the following health benefits:

Antioxidants (strengthens your immune system and helps with metabolism.)
Hydration of the body and the skin (acts naturally to reduce the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles)
Detoxifies your body
Includes fluoride (which strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the formation of plaque)
Contains Rooibos (which helps to relieve allergies, increase iron abosorption and aids in digestion)
Has lots of vitamins and minerals, particularly Vitamin C.

This tea will definitely boost your immune system with flavor and style.
