A Cup of Tea...

I didn't go to work now because my back aches. Scoliosis attacks!!! Anyway, im currently sipping my hot green tea now while blogging. Will sleep after this to ease the pain.

Aside from coffee, I always drink Tea whether its hot or cold. When im in the office its always coffee but when im home im a tea person. What makes me like it is the fact that it does good to one's health and i feel that it also good to the skin.

My Teas - Banaba and Green tea.

What is Green tea anyway?

Green tea is made using the leaves of the Chinese Camellia sinensis plant that are then applied to heat quickly after picking, either by steam or by dry cooking in hot pans. These methods minimizes oxidation, which is what is thought to give the green tea benefits we have heard so much about.

The benefits of Green Tea:

- Lowers you risk of cancer.
- Eases the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.
