I’m also a big fan of David’s tea! My favourite right now is the Brazillionaire and I also love Jessie’s Tea and the lavender flavour that reminds me of home! (France).

I love tea especially Chinese black teas– the really dark and bitter ones. Growing up, tea has always been a part of our culture.

Great post! Japanese green tea is my fave and is supposed to prevent tooth decay and increase the metabolism. I love using matcha powder for baking, it gives it such a great flavour!

The benefits of tea are many. The problems…all the fabulous blends. I have over 75 teas just from Davids. I’m about 110 different blends when I counted last…and that’s just my loose teas.

I had no idea that all teas came from the same plant. This is such an interesting blog post to spark my palate for some tea. I think I will branch out this fall and try some more flowery teas. I tend to stick to traditional blends. I also had no idea it was the second most popular beverage in the world. I can definitely rock at office trivia today. Thanks, lululemon!

Those David’s Tea flavours sound amazing – mainly the pumpkin chai! Going to pick some up for myself for this season :)

I am a big addict of TEA and and I am happy to see this post. I like the 10 point and its so true. As a Indian I know how Indians are addicted to TEA more than Chinese.

Hey, here’s an idea; grow your own herbal teas! I grow chamomile, spearmint, chocolate mint, lemon verbena and lemon balm in my back yard and make my own teas.

Also, you can make tea out of rosemary, thyme (good for colds) and lavendar, too!

Great loose leaf tea place in Old Town Pasadena near your store there called Bird Pick.

Great post Allessia!

Just wondering – there are so many different types of tea out there (black, green, white, rooibos) wondering if you know which one provides the most health benefits?

Thanks for the tips!

Hi Sheryl,
Each type of tea offers their own unique set of benefits! There is a great breakdown of Green, Black, White and Oolong tea here: http://bit.ly/10kerv8
