Tea benefits for women

Three cups of tea a day helps stop heart attacks and strokes (unless you're a man)


Last updated at 12:00 17 March 2008

Good for your heart: Tea (but only for women)

Women who drink three cups of tea a day may be protecting themselves against heart attacks and strokes.

They are less likely to have plaques - dangerous build-ups of fat and cholesterol - in their arteries, researchers found.

Only around one third of women who drank three or more cups of tea a day had plaques in a neck artery, compared with almost half of those who drank no tea.

However, the French study appeared to show that men who were regular tea-drinkers did not reap the same health benefits.

Researchers examined 2,613 men and 3,984 women with an average age of 73, measuring the level of plaque in their carotid artery using ultrasound.

Carotid plaque was found in 45 per cent of women who were not tea-drinkers, in 42.5 per cent of women who drank one or two cups of tea daily and in only 33.7 per cent of those reporting drinking three or more cups a day.

Even women with high blood pressure appeared to gain protection from tea, found the study by Institut National de la Santé Et de la Recherche Médicale, based in Paris and Lille.

The report said it was unclear why men did not benefit from tea-drinking in terms of lessening plaque build-up.

One theory is that tea might in some way complement oestrogen, the female hormone which is believed to help protect women against heart problems.

Dr Catherine Hood, from the industry-backed Tea Advisory Panel, said: "Findings in dietary studies are often confounded by other factors such as presence of disease in those taking part and other lifestyle behaviours.

"However, in this study, findings did not depend on whether the women were smoking or not, whether or not they took hormone replacement therapy and whether or not they suffered from vascular disease.

"No significant interaction was found with level of education, or fruit and vegetable intake."

Victoria Taylor, heart health dietician for the British Heart Foundation, said the findings, published in the medical journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, And Vascular Biology, are "good news for people who enjoy a regular cuppa" and called for further tests on the subject.

Almost 80 per cent of Britons are tea-drinkers, getting through an estimated 165million cups every day.

Black tea and Parkinson's

Black tea may slash Parkinson's disease risk

By Stephen Daniells, 22-Feb-2008

Drinking at least 23 cups of black tea a month, or about three-quarters of a cup a day, may slash the risk of developing Parkinson's disease by a whopping 71 per cent, suggests new research from Singapore.

The benefits of the beverage were not linked to the caffeine content, suggest the results of the study of 63,257 Chinese men and women published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative condition affecting movement and balance in more than one million Americans each year, a figure expected to rise due to ageing populations.

Green tea contains between 30 and 40 per cent of water-extractable polyphenols, while black tea (green tea that has been oxidized by fermentation) contains between 3 and 10 per cent. Oolong tea is semi-fermented tea and is somewhere between green and black tea.

The four primary polyphenols found in fresh tealeaves are epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epicatechin (EC).

Despite results from previous studies reporting that green tea may reduce the risk of Parkinson's, the new study, reported no benefits among participants of the Singapore Chinese Health Study.

Lead author Louis Tan from Singapore's National Neuroscience Institute states that data was collected through in-person interviews using structured questionnaires.

Over the course of the study, 57 incident cases of Parkinson's disease were documented, and while caffeine was associated with a protective effect, reducing disease risk by 45 per cent, the benefits of black tea were not affected by caffeine content, wrote Tan and co-authors.

"Black tea, a caffeine-containing beverage, showed an inverse association with Parkinson's disease risk that was not confounded by total caffeine intake or tobacco smoking," wrote the authors.

"Ingredients of black tea other than caffeine appear to be responsible for the beverage's inverse association with Parkinson's disease," they concluded.

Tea Advisory Panel welcomes the results

Commenting on the study, Dr Ann Walker, a member of The Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) said that the latest research study was great news for all UK 'black tea' drinkers.

"In the past there seems to have been more of a focus by scientists reviewing the health benefits of green tea," she said.

She added that previous studies looking at tea drinking and Parkinson's disease risk did not differentiate between black tea and green tea, while the protective effect of tea were attributed to the caffeine content.

"In the current study, however, the beneficial effect of black tea did not appear to be influenced by caffeine intake, indicating that ingredients other than caffeine are responsible for black tea's protective effects," said Dr. Walker.

"A key difference between black tea and green tea lies in the types and amounts of flavonoids. Green teas contain more of the simple flavonoids called catechins. But when black tea is made, the catechins undergo oxidation resulting in the generation of more complex varieties, called thearubigins and theaflavins."

"The underlying mechanisms for this protective effect of black tea on Parkinson's disease remains unclear until further research is done. But drinking even one cup of black tea per day could help to reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease," she concluded.

Tea and cooking


If you’re trying to increase your tea consumption, you can do more than just drink tea – you can also cook with tea! There are some basic ways to use tea as a food ingredient. Beyond that, the possibilities are endless…

How to Add Tea to Food
Generally speaking, when using tea as a food ingredient, you want to select teas that would also pair well with the final product. To help you find the best teas for the food you're making, here's a list of (very general) tea flavor profiles by tea type. Once you've selected a tea for your food, you are ready to use it as an ingredient. These are the most common ways to add tea to recipes:
  • Replace water with tea
  • Infuse milk or other liquid ingredients with tea
  • Melt solid ingredients (such as chocolate or butter), infuse them with tea and then use them in solid or liquid form
  • Add powdered tea (such as matcha green tea or tea ground in a spice grinder) as a garnish, spice, rub or partial replacement for flour (about 1 teaspoon powdered tea in each cup of flour should suffice)
  • Smoke meats or meat substitutes with tealeaves
  • Marinate meats or meat substitutes with brewed tea
There are other, more complex techniques, such as candying tealeaves to use as a garnish or boiling tea into a concentrate and then adding it to dishes.

Traditional Recipes
These techniques are used to cook with tea in recipes from around the world. Here are a few examples of traditional tea-infused food recipes:
  • Japanese ochazuke ("tea soup") uses green tea as a form of “broth.”
  • Chinese smoked duck uses Lapsang Souchong or other teas to impart a smoky flavor to the duck. Here’s a similar recipe for tea-smoked chicken. I’ve had a related (and incredibly delicious!) dish of tea-smoked mushrooms in Darjeeling, India.
  • Barm Brack (an Irish favorite) uses black tea in lieu of other baking liquids.
Recipe Ideas
Beyond these traditional foods, there are many ways to use tea as a food ingredient. Here are a few ideas you can try at home:

Savory Tea Foods
  • Boil eggs and other foods in tea instead of water.
  • Infuse teas into broths for soups and stews. Flavorful black teas (like Assams and Ceylons) are better for beef or pork broth, while umami-rich Japanese green teas (like Gyokuro and Sencha) are better for chicken or seafood broth.
  • Marinate tofu, seitan, seafood or meat in tea for 30 minutes or more to impart flavor and (in the case of seafood) remove unpleasant odors.
  • Use powdered green tea (such as matcha) as a rub for grilled meats. It has been shown to reduce the formation of carcinogens in grilled or charred meats, especially with fatty cuts of red meat (like those used for ground beef).
  • Use brewed tea and tealeaves as an ingredient in rice dishes, like this Oolong Fried Rice.
  • Stuff whole fish with oolong or green tealeaves before you steam them.
  • Whisk matcha into sauces and dressings, like this matcha salad dressing.
  • After brewing a quality Chinese green tea (such as Dragonwell), retain the leaves and sauté them with vegetables and/or meats.
Sweet Tea Foods
  • Infuse tea into a ganache for tea chocolate truffles. The most common tea truffles are Earl Grey, but other teas can taste amazing, too!
  • As you warm milk to make hot chocolate, steep some tea in it. Strain the tealeaves (or remove the teabag) and continue to make hot chocolate as you normally would.
  • Poach fruit in black or oolong tea with sugar or honey. Add spices as desired.
  • Use tea or tea-infused milk/cream to make tea sorbets and tea ice creams.
  • Infuse tealeaves into simple syrup for an easy shot of tea flavor in sweets and cocktails.
  • Chill out with icy tea granitas or a tea smoothie.
  • Make regular sweets recipes into matcha recipes with the addition of matcha powder as a spice. From matcha coconut macaroons to matcha truffles, there are lots of ways you can use matcha in sweet foods.

tea and caffeine

Caffeine in Tea
There are many factors influencing caffeine levels in tea, including brewing time / temperature, tea grade and tea varietal.

Tisanes or "herbal teas are usually caffeine free. Similarly, teas blended with other ingredients (such as mint green teas or masala chais) will often have lower caffeine levels than unblended teas.

Most studies show that black tea has between 40 and 120 mg caffeine per eight ounce serving. Decaf black tea usually contains about two to ten mg of caffeine.

The information below comes from a very interesting article on tea and caffeine by Bruce Richardson, who has been instrumental in debunking caffeine myths surrounding tea. Each seven-ounce cup of tea was steeped for three minutes.
Caffeine in Iced Teas

Many Snapple Iced Tea varieties contain 42 mg of caffeine per bottle. Snapple flavors with 42 mg of caffeine include:
  • Cranberry Twist
  • Diet Lemon
  • Diet Peach
  • Diet Raspberry
  • Lemon
  • Mint
  • Peach
  • Raspberry
  • Very Cherry
Snapple's "Red Tea" line is made with rooibos and are naturally caffeine free. Snapple's Diet Green Teas contain 60 mg of caffeine per bottle, while their regular Green Teas contain 30 mg of caffeine per bottle and their White Teas contain less than one mg of caffeine per serving. (There are two exceptions to this -- Lime Green and Diet Lime Green both contain five mg of caffeine per serving, or ten mg of caffeine per bottle.) Snapple's Just Plain Unsweetened and Lemonade Iced Tea both contain 18 mg of caffeine per bottle.

Here's a listing of caffeine levels in Honest Tea's bottled teas.

Arizona Iced Tea all contain caffeine. Their black teas have 15 mg of caffeine per eight-ounce serving. Their green teas contain 7.5 mg caffeine per serving. Their white teas contain six mg caffeine per serving.

Twelve ounces of Lipton Brisk Lemon Iced Tea contain seven mg of caffeine, while 12 ounces of Nestea Iced Tea contain 26 mg of caffeine.

A teaspoon of generic, instant iced tea mix contains 27 mg of caffeine, while the same quantity of a decaf equivalent contains about one mg of caffeine.

My day today

My day today was such a blessing from God.  I did a tea for an assisted living home and I had a good friend of mine join me.  She was such a help and blessing. We met some wonderful women and shared two teas with them.  One was Long Island Strawberry Green Tea and they kept asking for more!  We also did an Iced Tea due to June being ice tea month.  That one was yummy too!   It was an herbal and fruit tea.   We had strawberries to add to the tea.  I wanted to add some mint to the tea but would have had to stop at store  but my friend suggested we not stress doing that and just get to where we were suppose to be.  I listened and she was right.  We had just enough time to prepare before our guests arrived. 
I find each time that I prepare the teas for our guests  it is a blessing.  I get to meet other women who enjoy tea as much as I do.  They are all so grateful and it does not have to be so perfect.  God has showed me through all of this life can be simple and just sharing can be a blessing.  I am so thankful for each day and what God continues to share with me. 
We did have a couple of men attend too and it is always fun to share with them.  Usually tho they are there for the Bingo but that is just ok. 
God put before me a woman named Lisa that seemed very interested in being part of this ministry with me.  I will be praying and see where God leads.  Please pray that God will be so present in this ministry of sharing tea and His word. 
Thank you Father God for what you shared today with me.  Thank you for sharing these women with me.  They were a delight. Thank you for giving me the courage to do this and share with others about you  over tea.
I pray that you will hear from God and what direction He wants in your life.  I pray that you will hear and not be afraid to step out and follow Him.  I am doing a study on Jonah these next few weeks and that is another blessing.  God has showed me we cann have many interruptions in our lives but God has a divine plan for our lives.  Don't run away from it. Listen - He is wanting you to be near and hear and follow His great plan for you.  Sometimes we may not get it right away but when we do it is grand.
Don't forget that cup of tea.  If you want to know more about what teas we offer send me an email at or if you want to have a tea at your home, assisted living or work let me know.

Iced Tea

Fill tea kettle with fresh, cold water. Bring to a boil then pour into a 1-gallon heat-resistant pitcher. This should fill the pitcher about 1/3 full. Add six tea bags or 6 tsp. loose tea (regular or de-caffeinated) with the tags cut off. Allow to sit on counter to brew and come to room temperature.

Remove bags or loose tea when cooled. Give a slight squeeze but not too much or your tea will taste bitter. Add 3/4 cup sugar (1 cup if you like your tea a little sweeter). Squeeze in juice from 1/4 of a lemon. And enough cold water to fill pitcher 2/3 full.

Add some mint to tea, strawberry, orange...

Did you Know?

DID YOU KNOW?In my own hands I hold a bowl of tea;
I see all of nature represented in its green color.
Closing my eyes I find green mountains and pure water within my own heart.
Silently sitting along and drinking tea, I feel these become part of me.
