I am convinced that tea is one of the most healthiest things I can drink.

I like to drink tea.  The information in this short book gives me the incentive to drink more of it.  Valerie B. Hull is studying herbalism with the American College of Health Sciences.  This college is located in Portland, Oregon. She provides me with the valuable health benefits of drinking specific kinds of teas. I have never heard of garlic tea. I learned that garlic tea can help lower my blood pressure and improve my cholesterol levels.  I learned  about a new herb called goldenseal.  This herbal tea can help prevent eye disease, prevent diarrhea and help with diabetes.  All of these  health benefits in one tea sound incredible to me.  Hull provides some new variations of tea that sound absolutely delicious.  There is a recipe for a chocolate peppermint tea that can assist with digestion of food. This tea will also satisfy my sweet tooth too.  I can't wait to try this tea.   Another tea that sounds interesting is ginger cranberry tea.  I would have never thought of putting these two ingredients together into a cup of tea. I learned that ginger helps the heart pump easier. Improving my heart health is enough motivation to drink ginger tea.

  I learned that chamomile tea can help me relax and sleep. Drinking green tea will help improve my memory.  It also contains antioxidants that can prevent cancer.  Hull also provides useful tea tips that I can use.  The most useful tip is to throw out the first cup of steeped tea and to drink the second cup.  Drrinking the second cup of tea reduces the amount of caffeine I take into my body. Reducing my caffeine intake is always a good thing.  Valerie Hull convinces me that tea is one of the healthiest things I can drink.
