Tea. . . To Your Health!

What is the composition of your tea? Is tea really a cancer preventative? Which teas are highest in antioxidents? How can I best brew my tea? What exactly are the differences among black, green, and white teas?

Tea Times is the new blog of the Portsmouth Tea Company. Whether you are are tea connoisseur or simply want to be, Portsmouth Tea provides great information and a superior product.

I was privileged to sample three of the Portsmouth Teas this spring, courtesy of Marshall Malone. Of them, the Avalanche Rooibus was my favorite, though the Coconut Creme made a fabulous iced tea and the Earl Grey La Creme was very distinctive.

For a very limited time (deadline is Wednesday!) the PortsmouthTeaGuy will send a large cannister of tea to bloggers who link to the Portsmouth Tea Company.

Go ahead--it's worth it!

Their Irish Breakfast tea tempts me.

And I agree with the quote in their description, "a proper cup of tea should be 'strong enough for a mouse to trot on'. Enjoy our unique Irish Breakfast. Provide your own mouse." LOL

But I do also enjoy some of the lighter liquoring teas.

Thank you for leading this tea junkie to a land of what appears to be tea bliss. :)

Fantastic reading. Thank you for the link. I'm smitten.

I hope I can snag some time in the next couple of days to link to all the bloggers who linked to me. Palmtree Pundit tells me I need to join in the Link-Love world. Sounds scandalous.

Three cheers for rooibos, the greatest tea in the universe!

I seem to recall the journal Biochimica et Biophysica Acta in the early 1990's had an entire issue on the bioactive compounds found in different varieties of tea. All I remember was heavy doses of black teas seemed to almost eliminate stomach cancers.
