We share tea and talk tea at assisted living homes, private homes and community centers. We play Teago Bingo with prizes for winners. We are also doing mystery tea events.
Spend time being refreshed by God's Word with a cup of tea. Relax in a comfy chair that gets some afternoon sun. Reflect on the goodness of life.
Real joy comes not from ease or riches or
from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile. Wilfred T. Grenfell
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. Ps 100:4
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
Blessings to you and your family. Have a TEA- rrrific day.

Rich in Antioxidants
Rooibos tea is rich in antioxidants. According to Chris Casson in the May 2004 issue of Tea Muse, rooibos has many flavinoids, which are free-radical fighting antioxidants. These help to protect the body against cell damage and prevent serious disease such as heart disease and some types of cancer.
Unlike many other teas, this one is naturally caffeine free. People can drink the tea before bed and not have their sleep disrupted. It is safe for children and women who are pregnant.
Low Acid Content
This tea is less acidic than other teas, due to its low tannin levels, which makes it easier to drink for people with acid reflux disease.
According to Psychology Today (March 2001), rooibos is high in polyphenols, which are associated with maintaining a higher bone density and preventing arthritis.
Rooibos has been found to help pacify allergies and calm an uneasy stomach because of its anti-spasmodic components.
Good for Skin
Rooibos can be used topically to treat skin problems such as eczema. According to Africantea.com it is high in minerals such as potassium, calcium, fluoride and zinc.
