I love great food, especially during holidays when it isn't possible to resist the abundant and delicious meals we share with family and friends. Sometimes after eating too much, especially sweets, it is hard to stop and we
go on gaining pounds. This is due to an imbalance in blood sugar levels. Do you know that one of the most important benefits of cinnamon is reduced sugar cravings and lower blood sugar levels? Apple pie, even with cinnamon, can add these unwanted extra pounds, but cinnamon tea will not.
In our collection we have a great selection of teas with cinnamon.
It has been known in many countries for several centuries that cinnamon tea helps to strengthen the immune system, lower cholesterol, and stimulate weight loss. During the cold season add a piece of ginger and a slice of lemon to for extra Vitamin C.
Cinnamon tea will help keep you in good health during the holiday season despite dietary overindulgence, but this golden rule still applies: All is good in moderation.
Just one cup is worth a thousand words.
tea is cultivated. Only in this way can it achieve its highest potential.
The first book about the rules of successful tea brewing was called Tea Classic ( Cha Jing ) ; it was written in the 7th Century by Lu Yu, known as the Sage of Tea. He is a respected figure on the subject of tea to this day.
«What is a tea?» –asked one day a boy to a Wise man .
A Wise man answered: «Tea is a magic ».
For special occasions I use a special tea set I brought from Russia. This tea set has a direct connection with my cultural heritage. It is called Cobalt Blue Net and was first made for the Russian Tsarina Elisabeth in the 18th Century. She was daughter of Peter The Great and she ruled the country for 20 years. During this time scientists all over Europe were experimenting with ways to create porcelain. Russia was the third country after Meissen (Germany) and Sevres (France) to do this at Manufacture of Russian imperial porcelain began in St. Petersburg.
The Imperial Porclain factory survived revolutions, wars, and the Communist period and still manufactures these beautiful tea sets to this day. They are hand-painted and tea brewed in them is particularly flavorful. I brewed Darjeeling MIM 2nd Flush in my Cobalt Net tea set. The tea has full, velvety grounded flavor and beautiful color. This tea drinking experience was a pleasure for all senses.
When we think about roses we think about love and the people we love, romance and sweet moments together with someone special. The gift of roses has traditionally been a way to express our affections on an occasion, open hearts, and nurture friendship.
Imagine a tea with the character and aroma of fresh roses. In our collection we have Rose tea, actual Rose buds, and many blends that incorporate rose petals and their essential oils. Rose buds themselves are beautiful just to look at—they are organic and edible. You can put them in a cup of tea, a glass of champagne, or use them as a cake decoration.
