Improving Your Health With Tea

Green Tea

I used to view tea was something to drink only when I had a sore throat or sometimes when it was really cold outside. 
Once I became aware of the numerous uses and health benefits, I'm having a great time experimenting with different teas and reaping all the benefits in the process!
