I was frolicking around the internet last night as we tend to do, and I came across a surprisingly relevant article in Yahoo news. What drew me to the article was a delicious looking picture of a nice cup of green tea, it was titled: 5 Myths About Tea. Right up my alley.
I was pleased to learn some new things, things even I didn't have knowledge in. For example I knew that tea has a shelf life, for I have experienced this in my early years (funny tasting bag of pina colada loose leaf). But I wasn't aware that there was a rumour about how adding milk to your tea can destroy its health benefits (It doesn't). In the article, they even touch base on the topic of my last blog entry about herbal tea. In this particular article they say herbal tea is not technically a tea but a 'tisane'. I do agree with this statement, however I won't be the one going around correcting whoever calls it a tea, it's really not a big issue for me; call it what you will.
There are more busted myths, how peppermint tea is good for stomach aches for example and how tea is best when nothing is added to it. If you wish to learn more it's a really interesting article and I suggest you give it a look.
P.S. Like the new cover photo? I took it and edited it myself.
