Many people these days are turning to healthy drinks to help their bodies to cope with the stress of twenty first century living. Overly processed foods and chemical additions are two of the main culprits for obesity which is becoming a world wide problem. But the abundance of online tea stores has shown that the demand for this healthy beverage is on the increase. Even blooming tea has made a comeback. It consists blooming flower tea of a bundle of leaves which contains floral matter. When hot water is poured on to it, the bundle blossoms into flowers right there in the pot and is a sight to behold for sure.
The green varieties of these leaves are usually made from plants like chamomile but there are many concoctions available. Ginger and cardamom are very popular and each variety claims to cure different ills. Of course, with health always on the top of desirable attributes, merely drinking a beverage every day is a cool way to stay as healthy as possible.
These leaves are garnered from all corners of the globe, but some countries are better at growing healthy plants than others. China and Kenya are top of the list with India also vying for the top spot. Indeed, the leaves that are not processed too much are the most desirable since all the goodness is still in the leaf and will be passed onto the drinker.
Green leaves are currently the most popular health drink on the market. However, just like a good wine, the taste and benefits derived from the beverage all depends on how and when the leaf was picked and how it was handled after that. This is particularly true of the green leaf varieties and many health food shops will be able to tell if the beverage is a good quality or not.
Naturally, life is never as simple as just choosing which variety to taste from stores on the internet. Some stores sell leaves which are low grade and this would be a devastating experience for the first time imbiber. Imagine having a tasteless cup on the first go. This would probably put the drinker off for life for sure. Therefore, it is imperative, particularly for the uninitiated, to find a bona fide store with quality leaves so that they can get the full benefit.
Most internet stores have starter packs or variety packs which allows the user to try out several flavors before opting to buy in bulk. But if any of the leaves looks like they are too cheap, then this is probably low graded leaves or old stock. Both a big ‘no no’ for the connoisseur who will only buy the best leaves that he can afford.
