Tea on Tuesday

I must confess, I haven't had any tea today!!! In a rush to get out the door this morning, I missed my morning cup. After my Tuesday morning volunteer at the thrift store, I went next door and ordered a mango smoothie with whipped cream on top!!!!
Then, went home, and rushed back out to the supermarket, got fixings for dinner, came home, threw the groceries in the fridge, and ran out to the barn!

My daughter and I took a nice ride along the creek, then came back inside to prepare dinner.
Now, we have to go back outside to feed the horses, and help my husband move the tree stand.

Sooo, tea never happened for me today!!!

But, I did get an email from a blog I recently started to follow,called Teaternity, about the healthy aspects of tea. I decided to copy an excerpt from that below for you all. I may have to go out and buy myself some of this!!!

"Probiotics are often associated with expensive food that's high in calories and difficult to make at home. The secret is that you can get your probiotics from tea with no extra cost or effort. All you need to do is start drinking Puerh tea.

Puerh is probiotic because it's fermented by microbes that are good for you, aiding digestion and strengthening the immune system as well as killing off competing harmful bacteria.

The good news is Puerh tea is no more expensive than other kinds of tea, as long as you don't go for the fancy aged varieties. And there are no unwanted calories or fat in it, just plenty of antioxidants to heal you further."

  1. Hmmmm. Puerh tea does sound promising. Thanks for sharing the link. I'm going to look into to it.

    Happy Tuesday even if you got no tea. It sounds like you had a good day anyway. Tea does always make it better though. Maybe a cup to relax with this evening is in order.

  2. Mango smoothie .... ummmmm sounds good. It was such a gorgeous day I'm sure you wanted to be outside as much as possible!
    I just picked up more of the Numi Chocolate Puerh today! It is delicious! Yogi teas were on sale too. Cooler weather does make me want to drink more tea!
    Hope Lennie gets her new computer soon, I sure do miss her here in cyberspace!!!

  3. A mango smoothie would trump tea for me too :)
    What a great tip on the Puerh tea though .... I'll have to check out that link :)

    Happy T 2Day!

  4. Awesome article. Thanks for subscribing to me. Yes, Puerh has probiotics so you don't need to eat yogurt and get the bads of dairy or break the bank trying to keep in the kefir. I know, because I used to make my own kefir. But cheap cow's milk isn't an ideal food the way the cows are fed and it's processed. I'm a Puerh lover myself...
