Tea Drinking and Stroke Defense

Body + Soul Magazine’s June 2009 issue reported a recent review of nine research studies connecting tea drinking and stroke defense. Researchers found that drinking three cups of green tea or black tea per day could reduce the risk of stroke by 21%. In the magazine article, Dr. Arpita Basu of Oklahoma State University said that tea’s antioxidants appear to reduce this risk in the following ways:
1. Fighting oxidative stress and inflammation
2. Maintaining normal blood pressure
3. Preventing plaque buildup in arteries
4. Promoting healthy blood vessel function

You know Chai, Baby!’s stand: tea drinking is a habit that has tremendous long-term benefits for your health and wellness. So, keep sipping, baby!

Derby Redux

Wow. What an exciting two minutes -- I was absolutely riveted! I’ve never paid much attention to horse racing, but now I think I’m hooked.

I appreciate all of your comments and messages about the Derby party. We had an amazing Southern spread – and I tried grits & breaded okra & mint juleps for the first time. Most importantly, I wore a gloriously, magnificently oversized hat! (Before the party, everyone told me that “it’s all about the hat,” and now I totally understand.) Thanks again to my Derby party hosts for a grand new experience!

And when it was all over – you guessed it – I sat back with a tall, cool glass of Chai, Baby!’s Energy Blend. Glorious mint & ginger tea over ice! I’m all about starting new traditions!
