Japanese Gyokuru - a lovely tea that got murdered due to bad serving equipment, the wrong tea/water ratio and water being too hot

A lovely looking tea set
 
I would just love to share what I've read. Since, me, too, is a tea lover...😘

Cooling Off with TEA=)
Drink any kind of tea to reduce stress.
People who drank normal black tea destressed more quickly and had lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in their blood after a harrowing event.~(According to some research from University College London)
To add more, a recent research in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals evidence that drinking three (3) cups of tea a day reduces the risk of 'coronary heart disease' because the water in the tea can help replenish fluids in the body. "It makes no difference if you drink tea made using a bag or loose leaves. But brewing time will have an effect. The stronger the tea, the higher the content ofpolyphenols (see below), which act as antioxidants in the body."~Dietitian Frankie

BUT NOTE: But what could affect the health benefits is taking your tea with milk. According to a recent German study at the Charite Hospital in Berlin, they found that the protective effect that tea has on the cardiovascular system is totally wiped out by adding milk.
For happy drinking and fun, natural tea (sugar free) is very well-suited to sweet cookies, cakes, doughnuts, and pastries=)

More INFO: Tea polyphenols are chemical compounds such as flavanoids andtannins found naturally in tea. Depending on how the tea is harvested, handled, processed, and brewed, the polyphenol level in the tea can vary. These chemical compounds are believed to be beneficial to human health, and they are the basis of many claims made about the health benefits of tea. Polyphenols are most definitely antioxidants, which means that they can reduce the risk of developing 'coronary artery disease' and a number of other health problems. The polyphenols found in tea have also been linked with cancer reduction, as they appear to block the action of some enzymes linked with cancer. Because cancer is so complex and it can be influenced by many environmental and genetic factors, scientists are reluctant to say that tea polyphenols will categorically prevent cancer, although cancer rates do seem to be lower in tea drinkers after controls for other obvious factors like diet are used to evaluate the data.
The polyphenols found in tea also appear to suppress the growth of harmful bacteria, while promoting beneficial bacteria in the gut. The Chinese tradition of drinking tea with and after many meals may be linked to this activity, as food can be a prime source of bacterial infection when it is not handled well, and drinking tea with food could reduce the risk of developing infections.
The flavor of tea is also influenced by tea polyphenols. Tannins, found in high concentrations in black tea and lower concentrations in green and white tea, lend tea its distinctive dark color and bitter, sharp flavor. Other polyphenols can also change the color of the tea, making it more reddish or brown depending on how it is handled, and the subtle and distinctive flavors of well-processed teas are due in part to polyphenols.

I don't altogether approve of this kind of negative thinking about humanity. Yes, it's important to realize the impacts we are having on the environment and resources of the planet, but at the same time we should try to focus on the positive aspects of what exactly we can do to remedy these issues. In this particular case I say let's take this information and use it on a global scale to encourage more international conservation and re-foresting schemes. There are plenty of places now where in order to chop you must plant double the number of trees.
