Two or more cups of tea a day reduced risk of cerebral infarction (a certain type of stroke) by 21 per cent in men who smoke according to a recent study.  

In this study, researchers looked at the relationship between tea drinking and stroke risk in more than 26,000 male Finnish smokers. Tea consumption was assessed at the start of the study using a food frequency questionnaire, and the men were followed up for more than 13 years.

The researchers looked at the relationship between tea drinking and the occurrence of different types of stroke. These included the most common type of stroke known as ‘cerebral infarction’ (caused by a blockage in a vessel supplying blood to the brain), as well as less common forms of stroke including cerebral haemorrhage (caused by leaking of blood into the brain from a damaged vessel) and subarachnoid haemorrhages. The researchers also accounted for the major known risk factors for cardiovascular disease and age.

Commenting on this latest research, Dr Hood from the Tea Advisory Panel notes: “These latest study findings on black tea are interesting.  In a nutshell the study found that when men consumed 2 or more cups of tea a day, they had a 21 per cent reduced risk of cerebral infarction versus those men who did not. There was no significant association between tea drinking and any other forms of stroke including cerebral haemorrhage.”

Dr Hood adds: “The results from this study are consistent with a growing body of evidence which has shown a link between tea consumption and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Tea contains high amounts of polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties and prevent oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol promotes the formation of atherosclerosis, leading to increased risk of all types of cardiovascular disease including stroke. These beneficial effects of tea on reducing the risk of cerebral infarction are therefore biologically plausible.

In summary, in this large prospective study of male smokers, those drinking 2 or more cups of tea a day significantly reduced their risk of a type of stroke.”

Ginseng Tea:
Ginseng, botanical name Panax ('All Heal' in Greek) is a perennial plant with a fleshy root. You can make herbal tea from the fleshy root of the Ginseng plant. Ginseng Tea is said to have many healing and energy-giving properties. All the health benefits are brought about due to the presence of natural chemicals called 'Ginsenosides' in the Ginseng root.

Ginseng originated in Manchuria and has been in use for some 5000 years. It was called 'Ren Shen' by the Ancient Chinese. 'Ren Shen' means 'Man Root' and refers to the human-like shape of the Ginseng root. In Korea and Japan, Ginseng is called 'Ninjin'. The Chinese placed great faith in Ginseng and considered it a sort of rejuvenating, cure-all palliative for a variety of ailments. They also believed that regular drinking of Ginseng Tea would lead to a long life. Ginseng was so valuable it was bartered for silk and even prized above gold. The demand was such that the supply of Ginseng from the Chinese Mainland was not enough and the Chinese had to import it from Korea. Soon the Ginseng stock in the wild was exhausted and commercial cultivation became inevitable. However, Wild Ginseng has more medicinal value than cultivated Ginseng.

The Ginseng root is used fresh or dried for later use. You can buy it whole, sliced, in powder form, in tea bags, etc. Sometimes the Ginseng plant leaves are also used, but these are not considered as important as the root. Cultivated Ginseng can be had as Red Ginseng and White Ginseng. In both cases, the Ginseng plants are grown for about 6 years before their roots are harvested. The difference lies in the way the roots are processed for use. To make White Ginseng, the root is peeled and sun-dried. The dried root looks yellowish-white. To make Red Ginseng, the unpeeled root undergoes steaming, turns reddish-brown, and is then dried.

These days Ginseng Tea is a popular herbal drink the world over and Ginseng is grown in many places.

Health Benefits of Ginseng:
While Ginseng has been traditionally considered a 'cure all', many modern researchers question the actual efficacy of the root. The studies done on the subject have either not been extensive enough or have produced controversial results. Even so, a great many people swear by Ginseng Tea and consume it on a regular basis. According to these Ginseng supporters, it is beneficial in the following different ways -

  • Ginseng helps build up an appetite.
  • Ginseng helps with digestion.
  • Ginseng aids respiration.
  • Ginseng is rejuvenating and works against fatigue.
  • Ginseng helps reduce physical and mental stress.
  • Ginseng aids the immune system.
  • Ginseng works as an aphrodisiac.
  • Ginseng helps counter arthritis.
  • Ginseng helps counter asthma.
  • Ginseng helps counter diabetes.
  • Ginseng reduces the risk of cancer.
  • Ginseng lessens the effects of Crohn's Disease.
  • Ginseng is effective against Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome.
  • Ginseng helps lower (LDL) bad cholesterol levels.
  • Ginseng is effective against headaches.
  • Ginseng provides a cure for stomach ulcers.

If you’re ready for something a little different at tea time, try a flavored oolong tea. Many Westerners have not experienced the delicious flavor of oolong tea in any form. With a different flavor than black, green or white teas, oolongs are a rare treat. When paired with another flavor, oolong teas are quite exceptional.
Oolong tea is very popular in Asia. It was first created in China and is still considered China’s national tea. In the West, however, it is one of the least familiar tea varieties.

Tea leaves for oolong tea are picked early in the day and then dried indoors to promote fermenting. But, the fermentation process must be stopped when the leaves are 30% red and 70% green. Once fermentation has stopped, the tea leaves are rubbed, which releases the aroma, flavor and texture. Finally, the leaves are dried using charcoal, before they are graded for quality and sent for packaging.

Most oolong tea is grown in the Fujian region of China, but some is grown in Taiwan, and a small amount is grown in the Darjeeling region of India and in Vietnam.

Oolong teas have a very fruity flavor, often with smoky or toasted undertones. They are typically very fragrant teas, often with a floral aroma. Because of the natural fruitiness of oolong teas, they are often blended with other fruit flavors. The combination of oolong tea with other fruits only enhances the oolong’s natural flavor. Some of the most common blends of oolong include:

Coconut Oolong – This oolong tea has a very tropical taste. The combination of the fruity oolong or pouchong tea with the sweetness of coconut creates a light and sweet tea. Because it is light and flavorful, this tea is equally delicious hot or cold.

Orange Oolong – Oolong tea is often blended with orange blossoms or bergamot oil. Orange blossom oolong will provide a very light and sweet orange flavor to the tea. Oolong tea flavored with bergamot oil will be bolder and more flavorful. Bergamot oil comes from the very citrusy bergamot orange and is the flavor used in all Earl Grey teas. Hence, you’ll see this tea labeled as Earl Grey oolong.

Orchid Oolong – This is a very rare oolong, scented with real orchid petals. It can only be produced at certain times of year, when the right orchids are blooming. It produces a very fragrant and lightly sweet tea. When buying this tea, be certain that it has been flavored with real orchid petals rather than an artificial flavoring.

Peach Oolong – Many people describe the fruitiness of oolong tea as resembling the flavor of peaches. So, adding peach pieces to oolong tea is a natural choice. The addition simply enhances oolong’s natural aroma and flavor.

Almond Blossom Oolong – Oolong tea flavored with almond blossom and slivers of almond provides a light and sweet tea with just a hint of almond flavor.

You may also find other blends of oolong tea. With its natural fruity flavor, oolong tea can combine well with nearly any fruit and with many other botanicals, as well. Drinking flavored oolong teas can provide another taste dimension to the already flavorful taste of oolong. Additional flavors and aromas make the tea go well at different times of the day and with different foods.

Consider for example, choosing a spirited flavored oolong like Earl Grey oolong for a mid day meal, or a glass of iced coconut oolong on a hot afternoon. A mild almond blossom oolong can provide a perfect way to wind down after a stressful day.

Oolong teas are some of the most versatile teas available. You may find them a bit harder to locate and somewhat expensive, but they are certainly worth the effort and the expense. Oolong is a tea with many dimensions and one that provides some of the most complex and subtle flavor combinations. Spend a little time experiencing the many different flavors available in oolong tea. You’re certain to find quite a few that you’ll want to enjoy again and again.

Most people know oolong tea as the kind they are served in Chinese restaurants. Although this type of tea has long been treasured in Asia, partly due to its weight loss reputation, it is now gaining popularity in the west. Most people know oolong tea as the kind they are served in Chinese restaurants. Although this type of tea has long been treasured in Asia, partly due to its weight loss reputation, it is now gaining popularity in the west.

Although there are many different types of tea, they all come from the same plant, camellia sinensis. The leaves of the tree are processed in various ways, giving us the many kinds of tea. White, green, oolong and black tea are all from the same plant, but are processed differently. This processing affects the flavor, color, caffeine content and health benefits of the different types of tea.

After oolong tea is hand picked, it is shaken slightly to bruise the leaves, then left out in the sun. It is important to the ultimate flavor of the tea that this is done immediately after it is picked. This begins the drying and fermenting process. It is then roasted, traditionally in a hot wok.

Oolong means black dragon. It comes originally from Fujian Province in China. Today there is both Chinese and Taiwanese. This tea is semi-fermented, somewhere in between green tea, which is unfermented, and black tea, which is fully fermented. It contains caffeine, but slightly less than either black or green tea.

There is a large variety available. Different fermentation times produce different flavors and textures. Some oolong is flat and straight, some is curly, and some is rolled into tight balls. Often jasmine is added for flavoring. Some varieties are grassy and light, others are dark and richer.

The darker variety is best brewed kungfu style. Traditionally a very small clay pot is used. Pure water is boiled and poured over the leaves. Allow to steep for just one minute before serving. It is best taken hot.

This tea contains antioxidants, which are important to good health. While it contains fewer of beneficial compounds such as EGCG than green tea, it has far more of them than does black tea. This tea accounts for just a small percentage of all of the tea consumed in the world. It is renown in China for its weight loss effects. Try some today for a new tea experience!

Among all tea types, Chinese oolong tea has the highest level of aromatic oils and therefore is the most fragrant. The Iron Goddess oolong tea especially is renown for its intoxicating aroma. For further information, visit the Chinese Tea Shop at Amazing-Green-Tea.com.

A study by University College London (Oct. 2006) revealed that people who drank tea after stressful events were able to de-stress more quickly than those who did not drink tea. The researchers discovered that black tea lowers the levels of cortisol, a harmful stress hormone, by a significant average of 47 percent. No distinction was referenced between decafinated or catinated tea.

Tea is chemically complex—containing catechins, polyphenols, flavonoids, and amino acids, and so far it is not known whether it is a single substance or the synergistic interplay of all its components that are responsible for black tea’s health promoting effects. More studies are planned.

Professor Andrew Steptoe at UCL Department of Epidemiology and Public Health states that although drinking tea has traditionally been associated with relaxation, scientific evidence for the stress-relieving effects of black tea has been limited. This is one of the first studies to assess tea in a double blind placebo study whereby the participants did not know whether they were drinking tea, or just a tea-like beverage.

As a black or green tea drinker exclusively instead of coffee my entire life, I can attest to a natural ‘craving’ for tea when I am feeling stressed or need a pick-up in the late afternoon. This ‘natural’ gravitation to drinking tea in the late afternoon coincides with the British and many Europeans having tea time at 4:00 p.m or the Chinese and Japanese drinking tea with lunch and dinner. This practice may have started with their ‘natural’ craving for tea when feeling stressed or when needing a pick-up and it then became a national ritual. According to this research—not ironically done in London—it has proven what has been known for centuries—black tea has a calming effect.

Oolong tea also referred to as Wu Long tea is extensively consumed in Asia and has been dubbed as the 'Diet Tea'. Why is Oolong tea dubbed as such when there is a proliferation of different types of teas like green tea, black tea, herbal teas or herbal infusions? There are several varieties of this tea and it has also been called names other than wu long, it is also called WuYi or Wu Yi tea. Oolong tea also contains the best qualities found in green tea and black tea.

With all the different varieties of oolong teas in the market nowadays, the common denominator is their weight loss and fat burning properties. Oolong teas have been widely used in Asian countries for several centuries now and have been associated with keeping people, who constantly drink it, slim. Although a lot of scientific studies, research and debates have been done, there are still skeptics as to the weight loss property of Oolong tea. However, some scientific studies have come up with enough evidence that the tea helps to:

* Increase metabolism. Polyphenol, a substance active and available in higher concentrates in Oolong tea can effectively control obesity. It has been corroborated by some scientific studies that polyphenol activates the enzyme that dissolves triglyceride thus consistent intake of the tea enhances the metabolism and controls obesity.

* Increase energy. Wu long tea or Oolong contains caffeine just like coffee although its caffeine content is only about 15% of that of coffee. It has been established that caffeine stimulates the nervous system causing fat to be burned and converted to energy and producing heat, a process known as thermogenesis. In this way body fat is burned and excess water is also discarded from the body accelerating weight loss.
* Block fat absorption. The tea absorbs fat through the process of lipolysis, wherein fatty acids in fat cells are broken down. The fatty acids, saturated or unsaturated fats, are then released into the blood thus lowering blood pressure and regulating insulin in the blood.

* Rid the body of excess water. The tea acts as a diuretic causing the increased discharge of liquid or urine from the body. It produces a clean alkaline environment in the body that destroys and releases bacteria, microbes and other toxins from the body.

These properties are the very reason why Oolong tea has been dubbed as the 'Diet Tea'. Consuming tea regularly will greatly help in weight loss which is the expected result of taking a diet tea such as Oolong tea. It is completely safe even if taken regularly and though there may be side effects due to over consumption, these are negligible since you will have to literally drown yourself in tea before you would see any of the side effects.

Its belong to a "camellia" families of tea, under natural conditions grows as a tree tall to 15 yards.

The Indian teas belong to so-called heavy, morning teas.

In modern medical science, obesity does not simply mean being overweight. Obesity is defined as an "excess accumulation of fat in the human body," indicating that "the amount of fat within the body has increased beyond its normal range." As shown in the chart, the normal range of fat against weight is 15-20% for a man and 20-25% for a woman. A man will be diagnosed as being obese if he has a fat-to-weight ratio of 25% or more, and for a woman, if she has a ratio of 30% or more.

Effect of Oolong tea in Metabolism?

Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling obesity. Specifically speaking, it activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglyceride. It has been confirmed that the continuous intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and to controlling obesity.

There are two ways to lose weight -- either reduce energy intake, or increase energy expenditure. Because hypothyroidism -- even after treatment -- may reduce energy expenditure in some people, patients naturally are looking for options that can help safely help raise the metabolism.

In a study reported on in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was found that green tea extract resulted in a significant increase in energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), plus also had a significant effect on fat oxidation. While some of the effects were originally theorized to be due to the caffeine content of green tea, the researchers discovered that the tea actually has properties that go beyond those that would be explained by the caffeine. The same amount of caffeine as was in the green tea, administered alone, failed to change energy expenditure in other studies. This led reseachers to believe that there is some interaction going on with the active ingredients of green tea that promotes increased metabolism and fat oxidation.

The researchers indicated that their findings have substantial implications for weight control. A 4% overall increase in 24-hour energy expenditure was attributed to the green tea extract, however, the research found that the extra expenditure took place during the daytime. This led them to conclude that, since thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) contributes 8-10% of daily energy expenditure in a typical cubject, that this 4% overall increase in energy expenditure due to the green tea actually translated to a 35-43% increase in daytime thermogenesis.

Implications for You?

If you were to incorporate green tea into your weight loss efforts, how is the best way to go about it?

One way would be to choose a reputable brand of organic green tea at a health food store or natural grocery, and start by taking a cup of tea every day. You can also take a green tea extract, in the form of a supplement.
