Should You Drink Matcha Tea?
While green tea has long been a recommended part of a healthy diet, another brighter shade is becoming increasingly popular: matcha. Here’s what you should know about the beverage. What is matcha tea? Matcha is a type of green tea made by taking young tea leaves and grinding them into a bright green powder. The powder is then whisked with hot water.

Tea tree genome contains clues about how one leaf produces so many flavors
The most popular varieties of tea -- including black tea, green tea, Oolong tea, white tea, and chai -- all come from the leaves of the evergreen shrub Camellia sinensis, otherwise known as the tea tree. Despite tea's cultural and economic significance, relatively little is known about the shrub behind the tea leaves. However, the first draft of the tea tree genome may help explain why tea leaves are so rich in antioxidants and caffeine. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Caffeine Could Help Ward Off Dementia In Older Women, Study Finds
Good news, coffee lovers. A new study has uncovered a significant link between caffeine consumption in older women and a reduced risk of dementia. Although researchers have yet to establish a “cause and effect” between the two, they did find a strong relationship between higher caffeine consumption in women 65 and older and a lower risk of developing dementia or cognitive impairment. Specifically, those women who self-reported drinking more than 261 milligrams of caffeine per day ― or about two to three eight-ounce cups of coffee or five to six eight-ounce cups of black tea ― enjoyed a 36 percent decline in...

Rooibos: Better Than Green Tea For Many Reasons
When I hiked Table Mountain on my last trip to South Africa, the locals told me about an herb that is better than green tea that kept them disease-free. African Bushmen have used this herb since before recorded history, but it’s still pretty rare here in America. Studies on this plant are being done all over the world. But not in the U.S. Because Big Pharma and the FDA aren’t interested in a natural cure that can’t be patented — or profited from. What is This South African Herb? I’m talking about an herb called Rooibos — or red bush in Afrikaans. Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) provides a ...
