Once again, I'm a bit late in publishing my weekly wellness post.  Since I'm a huge tea fan - and since I've been drinking lots of hot tea due to the weather - I thought I'd post a quick list of the health benefits of tea, gleaned from Huffington Post:

  1. Boosts the immune system
  2. Rehydrates
  3. May lower risk of heart disease
  4. May shrink tumors
  5. Possible treatment for prostate cancer
  6. Improves function in old age
  7. Lowers blood pressure
  8. Aids weight loss
For me, the best thing about tea?  It just tastes good!  So it's nice to know that it has additional perks.  Some of these benefits are from green tea so it's a good idea to mix it up - drink black, green, white...just enjoy it!
