Today’s Cup of Tea is Sencha Green Tea with Sunny Mother Nature

Feel the wonderful benefits sink in while enjoying a cup of Sencha Green Tea with Sunnymothernature!

Do you love the finer things life has to offer?  That’s what you get with Sencha Green Tea!  Green Tea in general is really good for one’s health (although all teas have health benefits).  As with all teas, there are different qualities.  Compass Teas’s, at www.compassteas.com, Superior Sencha Green Tea is one of the top qualities of Sencha Tea available.  

Sencha Green Tea is considered to have a more refined taste.  Also, it is interesting to note that Sencha Green Tea actually brews green, not yellow or yellowish-green like some other green tea varieties.

Green tea in general has antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that are all good for one’s health.  It can possibly help your immune system, prevent diseases, help with mental clarity, etc.  The list can go on and on with what green tea can do.

I find that if I want to focus more, without becoming anxious, or hyper, green tea is amazing.  It relaxes me, but focuses me at the same time.

Today, I decided to brew some Sencha Green Tea because I wanted the awesome health benefits from it~ as well it is said to help clear your skin.  Yet, even if it doesn’t help my skin clear up, I know it is helping my body, mind and spirit in many other ways.

My Sencha Green Tea is from Compass Teas, at http://compassteas.com/oolongclassic-1.aspx (and yes it’s this link even though it says Oolong Classic) for 2 oz. for $9.25.  And, the best part is that this Sencha Green Tea is organic!  Sencha Green Tea can be found at other tea suppliers and wherever tea is sold too.

So, sit down and have a cup of Sencha Green Tea with me.  Mother Nature will love that you are doing a little something to improve your health, which in turn improves Mother Nature’s health! 

Have a sunny day!

How to Tell Whether a Tea has Caffeine with Sunny Mother Nature

It’s easy to tell if a tea has caffeine, or if it’s naturally caffeine free with Sunny Mother Nature!

There are people who only want caffeine.  Others who only want caffeine free.  And then there are people like me who drink both. 

Yet, there are many people from all those groups who don’t know, without looking at the package of tea, whether a tea has caffeine, or is naturally caffeine free.  So, here are the 5 things to look for:

1) If the tea is from the Camellia sinensis plant, then it has caffeine.

You’re probably wondering how science class suddenly came into a tea post, right?  Well, that’s the only science, I promise! 

Basically, the Camellia sinensis plant is where the leaves come from for white tea, green tea, oolong tea, and black tea.  So-

2) If it is a white, green, oolong, or black tea-then it has caffeine.

3) If it is a red tea, aka rooibos, or honeybush tea, then it is caffeine free. 

Basically, remember that red tea is NOT from the Camellia sinensis plant, and you’re good.

4) If it is an herbal tea, then it is caffeine free.

Any herbal teas, like spearmint, lemongrass, peppermint, etc. and tea blends that only have herbs in them, like a spearmint and peppermint blend-are caffeine free.

(Did you know? Technically, herbal teas and red tea are not “tea” because they do not come from the Camellia sinensis plant)

5) If a tea blend has some herbs, like peppermint and spearmint, mixed with any white, green, oolong, or black tea, then it is NOT caffeine free.

Remember that if a tea blend contains even one tea that has caffeine, then the entire tea blend is considered caffeinated.

That’s it!  Those are the 5 things to look for to know whether a tea has caffeine, or is naturally caffeine free!

Now you know how to figure out if a tea is caffeinated, or caffeine free, even if the packaging doesn’t say so!  (And see, there was only a little science.)

So, go drink a cup of tea- caffeinated, or caffeine free- your choice!

Mother Nature will love that you are drinking something that is natural and has so many health benefits in it too!
