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

Traveling TEA With Jesus

Friday, April 27, 2012

In The Marketplace Every year, the North American Tea Championships are held to determine premium teas in the marketplace. Trends emerge based on the number of entries in every category. This year, a record 230 entries were submitted and the Flavored Rooibos category accounted for over 15% of the total field making it the largest single category of submissions. As Gourmet News (April 2012 issue) reports: “indicating the popularity of rooibos in the marketplace”. Rooibos is technically not a tea, meaning it contains no actual Camellia Sinensis (tea leaf) but it is manufactured, brewed and consumed in a manner generally similar to tea. Although studies into the health benefits of rooibos on humans are scarce in scientific literature, animal studies suggest it has potent antioxidant, immune-modulating and chemopreventive effects. In addition, rooibos tea has not been found to have any adverse effects. Here are other health and wellness notes, perhaps why it’s becoming more popular amongst young and old: • Rooibos is purported to assist with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems • A study performed by Japanese scientists suggested that Rooibos tea is beneficial in the topical treatment of acne. This is due to levels of alpha-hydroxy acid, zinc and superoxide dismutase present in the herb • Research is being conducted with encouraging results that show rooibos may have a positive affect on mitigating the effects from Type 2 diabetes. • A study in South Africa on humans showed that consuming 6 cups of rooibos per day reduce biomarkers associated with heart disease. Rooibos is naturally caffeine free and it makes a great base for blending.
