I get up early to workout most mornings, before my kids get up. Then my day often feels like its pace is a dead-run. Around 4:00 PM, my energy begins to wane. Coincidently, that’s usually the time my children complete their homework. What I enjoy at that time, is a cup of hot tea, and to just ‘be’ for a few moments. Decompress. Hear about the stories of the day, and recharge my batteries.
An added bonus is the health benefits tea provides:
I recently tried several varieties from Adagio.com through their sampling offerings. The Peach Oolong and fragrant and satisfying. I love that they provide info on the levels of caffeine and the temperature and steep times for optimal enjoyment for each kind.
American Dietetic Association Spokeswoman, Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, LD boldly says, “There doesn’t seem to be a downside to tea. It has less caffeine than coffee, and the compounds in tea-their flavonoids- are good for the heart and reduce cancer.” For me though, it’s not just about the tea, but the life-experience of enjoying a quiet moment with my family.
