I don’t know about you, but I certainly love my tea! Tea offers us all an opportunity for quiet contemplation and shared moments of intimacy with friends, enabling us to reflect, be inspired and relax.
Coffee is important of course, but somehow life without tea is not something I want to imagine. So here I’m going to reveal many of the reasons I love tea; the ways that I think the world is a better place because of it!
When we talk about tea we naturally think of black tea, served with milk and/or sugar, made in a teapot and served in teacups. And there’s a correct way to hold the cup in polite society — pinky up!
However, tea is not just one drink, it is many. There are the true teas which derive from the tea plant. And then there are many other beverages, tisanes or herbal teas, that are tea-like drinks. These are also delicious!
Tea is grown in many parts of the world, and in those places where it doesn’t grow it has been imported for so long that it is part of the culture, like in Britain for one example! Tea is able to adapt itself to any culture, truly a universal drink. That’s one reason why I think the world is a better place because of tea!
Tea can be enjoyed indoors, or outside! Tea can be enjoyed alone or in the company of others. It can be drunk in the quiet solitude of one’s room, surrounded by the wonder of nature, or in the midst of the hustle and bustle of city life. Drinking a cup of tea provides an opportunity for quiet contemplation or shared moments of intimacy with others.
After stumbling upon EnjoyingTea.com on the lovely world wide web, I was beyond ecstatic when they agreed to a review and giveaway with CoolCanucks!

If you need to take a break, relax, unwind, take time out from whatever’s making you busy and stressed, have a cup of tea! If it’s a chilly day, warm yourself up with a nice hot cup of tea. If you’re too hot, have a refreshing cup of tea, hot tea or iced tea, both seem to work!
When you meet with friends, a cup of tea always sets a good atmosphere. If you’re having an important meeting with colleagues, or people you don’t get along with so well, serving tea is a great idea. And when times are tough, a nice cup of tea always helps, always comforts.
EnjoyingTea.com carries an extensive array of many different teas and teabags, as well as Tea Sets, Tea Pots, Tea Cups, and Tea Accessories! Online shopping with them is a complete snap as everything is so neatly categorized for your easy shopping convenience!
EnjoyingTea.com sent me a phenomenal Smart Tea Maker to review, along with 3 wonderful packages of tea! I really enjoyed the taste of the Earl Grey Tea, the English Breakfast Tea, and the Dragon Well Green Tea!!
Tea is not just delicious, relaxing, yet refreshing, it’s also good for you.
Tea is high in antioxidants. These are molecules that slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which start chain reactions that damage cells. So antioxidants reduce the number of free radicals, and thus benefit the body, protecting it from cancers and other diseases.
Tea without milk (or sugar, of course) has no calories. Drinking tea with milk adds calories, but there are benefits from the milk such as calcium and valuable minerals.
Although true teas contain caffeine (which is both good and bad), it contains much less than caffeine than coffee. Interestingly, the form of caffeine in tea seems to be different from that in coffee such that it doesn’t have its negative impact (buzz then let down), but rather is a delightfully refreshing drink!
I give EnjoyingTea.com a huge thumbs up, and recommend this wonderful company to everyone!!
