Stephanie Essin’s Tealightful Beat Blog

Tealightful| People have been drinking tea for centuries. It has been used for cold remedies, energy supplements, antioxidants and even a source of trade. Tea is also a great choice for an alternate to coffee. If you have ever asked yourself “Where can I get some information about why tea is better for you than coffee?” you’ve come to the right place.

Merchants of Tea| Not only can tea provide health benefits for you and your family, it also has a colorful marketplace. Bon Teavant, a large merchant entity of tea, brings to light the history of tea culture in America. Everything from the ways British tea culture migrated to the U.S.A, to a little thing called the Boston Tea party. Bon Teavant is great for learning about this great plant.

 Official Blogs| Aside from the antics of amateur tea bloggers, you may be looking for something a little professionally insightful. The Association of Tea Bloggers’ list of recommended blogs was created to help you tea addicts find exactly what you are looking for.

Would you care for a spot of tea?|You may be wondering where all of the tea mannerisms came from. All things English can be found here, right next to the crumpets, that is.

“Camellia Sinensis”- (that’s how smart people say tea)|Harvard Medical School steeps into the health benefits of drinking tea. Who said a cup of tea was just a cup of tea? And we can’t forget our friends at the Science Daily giving their two lumps on some more health benefits of tea.

Tealightful’s recipe for the perfect cup of English Breakfast tea|

1. Start by boiling 2 cups of water in a small tea kettle.

2. Scoop 2 tablespoons of loose English Breakfast tea in a mesh bag (Teavana is the brand I recommend).

3. Place the mesh bag of tea into the kettle and let steep for 2-3 minutes (careful not to let it steep for too long or it will be too strong).

4. Pour into your teacup and add a splash of cream (I use 1/2 and 1/2).

5. Add sugar if desired and enjoy!
