Oolong Tea


It is also known as fermented tea. Oolong is taken from a name of Chinese man Wu Long or Oolong. The man discovered the oolong tea accidentally when the tea leaves he picked were left to chase down a deer. When he got back, the tea had been fermented. Other legend says that oolong means black dragon in Chinese since the leaves are similar to little black dragon suddenly awoken when they are brewed.

Just like other types, oolong tea has also healthy benefits that help digestion and cure headache. Moreover, modern research on oolong tea shows that it is effective to control cholesterol level and help reduce blood sugar level.
Oolong tea is a semifermented tea that originated in China more than 400 years ago. Oolong tea has the properties of both black and green tea, giving it twice the antioxidant power. Due to its high content of antioxidants, especially polyphenols, oolong tea may help reduce stress levels, burn body fat, aid in weight management, improve cognitive memory and possibly promote healthier skin and stronger bones and teeth.

About Oolong Tea

Oolong tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, the same plant that produces white, green and black tea. Each tea goes through an oxidation or fermentation process that establishes its antioxidant power, flavor and color. Oolong tea is semifermented, giving it a dark brown color closer to black tea but more of a green tea flavor without the grassy undertones. Oolong tea is full of nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, E and K, as well as calcium, copper, maganese, selenium and potassium. It is also rich in antioxidants, including polyphenic compounds that might provide health benefits.

Fighting Obesity

Oolong tea may be an effective way to control obesity. According to Organic Facts, oolong tea appears to activate enzymes in the body that can control fat metabolism. In a study published in the January 1999 issue of the "International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders," oolong tea was given to lab rats that were on a high-fat diet for 10 weeks. The rats lost weight, and the tea positively affected their fatty liver caused by the high-fat diet. In another study published 10 years later in the February issue of the "China Journal of Integrative Nutrition," researchers showed that oolong tea can decrease body fat content and reduce body weight through improving fat metabolism. Overweight study participants took 8g of oolong tea every day for six weeks; a strong majority lost weight.

Combats Stress

Oolong tea may help reduce stress levels, according to a study in the September 2002 issue of "Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry." During this study, performed at the Osaka Institute for Health Care Science in Japan, lab rats that were administered oolong tea showed significant improvement in their stress levels. More studies are needed to determine whether this was because of oolong tea's high polyphenol content and its ability to increase fat metabolism or because oolong tea contains a stress-relieving property not yet discovered.

Improves Memory

Drinking a daily cup of oolong tea may improve cognitive memory. A study in the August 2006 issue of the "Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology" suggests that oolong and green tea both have the ability to reduce deterioration of cognitive ability and degenerative brain changes and slow down the aging process. During this study, lab mice given oolong and green tea daily supplements showed significant improvements, reversing their cognitive impairment and degeneration of their brain tissue.

Red Tea

Red Tea is made from a plant called rooibos, which grows only in the Cedarberg mountains of South Africa. Loaded with antioxidants and many minerals such as copper, iron, zinc, manganese and magnesium, Red Tea is said to promote relaxation and alleviate tension and nausea. The emerging potential health benefits, paired with its earthy and robust taste, have allowed Red Tea to continue gaining popularity worldwide. Our Red Tea is organic and imported from South Africa. Antioxidants: High. Caffeine: None

Most people are familiar with the health benefits of tea, due to its antioxidant properties. Red tea, however, may not be as widely heard of or used. This red tea, also known as "rooibos," has a host of benefits, including immune system health and aiding with common aches and pains. Stomach cramps, headaches, allergies, asthma, insomnia, eczema and high blood pressure are some of the ailments that could be helped with red tea. In addition, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, flavonoid-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, red wine, chocolate and tea have cardiovascular benefits.

Red Tea, Hot or Cold

Red tea is an ideal beverage, as it can be sipped hot or cold. Cold red tea is refreshing, while hot red tea is soothing. The absence of caffeine in red tea makes it a wonderful bed-time beverage that can aid those with insomnia and calm an irritated throat. Cold red tea can quench summer thirst while offering the benefits of hydration and antioxidants, which are known to slow aging and boost the immune system for greater protection against colds and/or illnesses.

Appearances

Red tea is good for the skin and can help improve the appearance. The presence of zinc, long touted for the treatment of acne and related skin conditions, makes red tea a smart element for skin care. Red tea powder can even be applied directly to the skin to sooth skin irritations (see link in References).

Calcium

Most individuals are aware of the body's need for calcium and the importance of strong bones for both growing children and aging adults. While milk and dairy products are rich sources of calcium, red tea may also be included as a source of calcium. Those who are lactose intolerant (have difficulty digesting dairy) may find red tea a refreshing alternative that is both easy to digest and good for the stomach.

White Tea consists of the youngest, most tender leaves of the tea plant. The delicate leaves are simply steamed and left to dry - this means White Tea is the least processed of all teas that are made from Camellia Sinensis. Some studies suggest the minimal processing of White Tea results in higher concentration of antioxidants as compared to black and green teas. Argo Tea is proud to serve high grade Pai Mu Tan (White Peony), which has sweet, almost honey-like undertone in taste. Antioxidants: High. Caffeine: Low

White Tea


White tea is the tea type that undergoes no fermentation. Its drying and evaporation process is also very short. White tea is made from selected leaves harvested before fully blossoming.

It is called white tea because at the time of picking, leaf sprouts are still enclosed by very soft white hairs. Due to this short process, the content of catechin in white tea is the highest, and it can deter free radicals more effectively than other types and function as antioxidant in the body.White tea is known as the god and goddess of tea as it is picked from the best leaf sprouts.

Tea is the most commonly consumed beverage in the world, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Tea comes in many forms, green and black tea are popular in the Western world. White tea, native to China, has gained popularity due to its low caffeine content coupled with its disease fighting components. White tea is the least processed of all teas, created by using leaves and buds, which are steamed and fired, then dried to preserve the disease fighting properties.

Cancer Fighting Benefits

Oregon State University published an epidemiological study by Higdon and Frei thatidentified that white tea contains high amounts of the antioxidant, catechin. This high powered antioxidant inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Drinking white tea regularly may reduce risk of stomach, liver, skin, breast, colon, prostate, lung, esophagus, pancreas and ovarian cancer in animal studies. According to the American Cancer Society, drinking white tea may also reduce risk of recurrence for breast cancer survivors.

Cardiovascular Health Benefits

Drinking tea may also help reduce risk of developing heart disease according to a 2001 study published in the "American Journal of Epidemiology." Components such as catechins help to dilate blood vessels which allows for a reduction in blood pressure and better blood flow throughout the body. White tea contains the highest amount of catechins compared to green and black tea. Research published in 2002 in the "Clinical Science Journal" showed that people who drank any type of tea had a marked reduction in serum cholesterol levels.

Other Health Benefits

White tea prevents cavities and strengthens teeth and bones due to the high fluoride content. White tea and tea extract may also help promote weight loss according to published work in the 2009 "Nutrition and Metabolism Journal." Weight loss may be accelerated in overweight individuals who drink tea due to the active component catechin, which inhibits adipogenesis while stimulating the fat burning activity in the body.

Safety Considerations

In large quantities, tea and tea extracts may reduce potassium levels and may cause gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Tea may also interfere with the blood thinning effects of Warafarin treatment. Tea also reduces the absorption of plant sources of iron in the diet. People who are anemic should limit tea consumption when eating iron rich foods.

Black Tea

The strongest of all teas in terms of caffeine, Black Tea undergoes an extensive process of drying, rolling and complete oxidation. Even though Black Teas have the highest amount of caffeine among teas derived from Camellia Sinensis, it is still only about half the amount that is in coffee. The flavors of black tea range from delicate and subtle to robust and malty. We’ll help you find your favorite Black Tea, whether you prefer the muscatel aroma of our Darjeeling Champagne, our full-bodied English Breakfast, or our spicy and complex Masala Chai. Antioxidants: High. Caffeine: High

Black Tea


Black tea is tea leaves that undergo the longest fermentation process so that their color turn deep black and their aroma is the strongest.

Black tea is the most consumed tea in the world (especially by the British).

Black tea is believed to have the most benefits such as improving concentration and preventing drowsiness.

Top of Form

Go into your kitchen and brew yourself a hot, delicious cup of black tea. As you do so, you're brewing up a constellation of health benefits that might surprise you. Black tea is the cousin of green tea, meaning it contains several of the same health benefits, such as antioxidants, inhibiting several forms of cancer and killing viruses.

Antioxidants

While green tea contains a high number of health effects, black tea isn't far behind. Black tea is further fermented green tea leaves that are dried in the manufacturing process. Antioxidants slow down the process of aging for tea drinkers.
One of the most important antioxidants in black tea is theaflavin, which scavenge abnormal cellular bodies, ridding the body of these abnormal cells before they mutate and become cancerous. Theaflavins are also responsible for inhibiting oxidation, particularly of LDL cholesterol.

Beneficial Cardiovascular Effects

Drinkers who enjoy black tea regularly may benefit, especially if they already have cardiovascular disease. Because the theaflavins stop oxidation of LDL cholesterol, this effect helps to reduce the risk of heart disease. Drinking black tea may help heart attack patients by increasing their rate of survival following a heart attack. Black tea improves the ability of the blood vessels in the body to relax and expand, thus helping consumers maintain a healthier blood pressure. Black tea also contains a molecule called a catechin, which produces nitric oxide, helping the blood vessels in the body to dilate.

Inhibits Cancer Growth

Chemicals found in black tea have been tied to a decreased risk of breast, stomach and colon cancer; however, this connection has not been definitively proven. Researchers at Rutgers University have found that a compound in black tea---TF-2---forces colorectal cancer cells to commit suicide. Normal cells were not affected in this way.

Deactivates Viruses

New research conducted at Pace University by Milton Schiffenbauer finds that drinking black tea can help to neutralize the virus that causes herpes. Researchers have known that black tea can render the germs that cause diarrhea, skin infections, pneumonia, cystitis and skin infections.
Tea drinkers can kill viruses lurking in their mouths.

Green Tea

Quickly steamed after picking, Green Tea has all the flavor and nutrition of the leaf sealed inside, with very little oxidation occurring. The leaf is delicate, so it should be brewed in water far below boiling – we recommend taking your kettle off the burner for 5-7 minutes after your water has come to a boil. Otherwise, the leaves of the tea will be damaged, and much of the grassy, sweet flavor may be destroyed. Our Sencha grade Green Tea is imported directly form Shizuoka, Japan and blended with Matcha, a high quality stone-ground green tea. Antioxidants: High. Caffeine: Medium

Green Tea


Green tea is the type of tea that also undergoes no fermentation process, but it goes through drying process with longer leaf evaporation than white tea.

All tea contains catechin, but green tea is now more popular due its higher content of the substance than black tea. Green tea is then known as a tea that can prevent cancer.

Other benefits of green tea is that it can prevent and decrease risk of high blood pressure and stroke, reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) level, and smooth skin.

The tea plant is naturally high in a group of antioxidants known as catechins. Green tea offers more catechins than black tea because its production involves less processing and fermentation. The health benefits of green tea are vast and include cancer prevention and a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. There is another important benefit of green tea. In many research studies, green tea extract has been shown to significantly alter body composition by increasing metabolism.

How can Catechins aid in Weight Loss?

Catechins are powerful antioxidants that may aid weight loss in two ways. They inhibit the breakdown of fats and the production of an inflammatory substance that triggers hunger. Drinking as few as three glasses of green tea daily can contribute to a reduction in body weight and weight circumference (women with a waist of more than 35 inches and men with a waist of more than 40 inches are at a much greater risk of cardiovascular disease than their slim-waisted counterparts) by almost five percent in three months. Catechins are found in green tea (one cup offers 142 milligrams), chocolate (four ounces offers 53 milligrams) and black tea (one cup contains 27 milligrams). However, only green and black tea are calorie-free.

Green Tea Catechins and Fat Oxidation

A study published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition investigated whether the green tea extract (containing caffeine and the catechin known as epigallocatechin gallate, or EG), could increase 24-hour energy expenditure (EE) and fat oxidation (burning of fat) in humans. On three separate occasions, 10 healthy men were randomly assigned to receive one of the following at breakfast, lunch, and dinner: green tea extract (50 milligrams of caffeine and 90 milligrams of EG), caffeine (50 milligrams) and placebo. The conclusions of this study were that green tea promotes fat oxidation beyond that which could be explained by its caffeine content.

Physical Activity Increases Effect

A study published by the Journal of Nutrition revealed that consumption of green tea catechins enhances exercise-induced changes in abdominal fat and serum triglyceride (blood fat) levels. One-hundred thirty two (132) participants were randomly assigned to two groups. The first group were given a beverage containing 625 milligrams of catechins and 39 milligrams of caffeine, while the second group were given a control beverage (39 milligrams of caffeine, no catechins) over a 12-week period. Their diets remained constant but they participated in at least 180 minutes per week of moderate-intensity exercise.
Body composition, abdominal fat and serum triglyceride levels were measured at baseline and after 12 weeks. There was significantly greater weight loss, percent change in total abdominal fat, subcutaneous abdominal fat, and fasting serum triglyceride levels in the group that consumed the catechin-rich beverage. While this evidence appears convincing, many more studies are needed to draw conclusions which would lead to specific recommendations.

To sum up, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

  • cancer
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • high cholesterol levels
  • cariovascular disease
  • infection
  • impaired immune function

What makes green tea so special?

The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke.

Links are being made between the effects of drinking green tea and the "French Paradox." For years, researchers were puzzled by the fact that, despite consuming a diet rich in fat, the French have a lower incidence of heart disease than Americans. The answer was found to lie in red wine, which contains resveratrol, a polyphenol that limits the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet. In a 1997 study, researchers from the University of Kansas determined that EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol, which may explain why the rate of heart disease among Japanese men is quite low, even though approximately seventy-five percent are smokers.

Why don't other Chinese teas have similar health-giving properties? Green, oolong, and black teas all come from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. What sets green tea apart is the way it is processed. Green tea leaves are steamed, which prevents the EGCG compound from being oxidized. By contrast, black and oolong tea leaves are made from fermented leaves, which results in the EGCG being converted into other compounds that are not nearly as effective in preventing and fighting various diseases.

Other Benefits

New evidence is emerging that green tea can even help dieters. In November, 1999, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. Researchers found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo.

Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay! Just as its bacteria-destroying abilities can help prevent food poisoning, it can also kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque. Meanwhile, skin preparations containing green tea - from deodorants to creams - are starting to appear on the market.

Pharmacological Effects

There is no clinical proof that drinking strawberry tea, specifically, provides any health benefits. There is, however, evidence that compounds in the plant may reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. In the Oct. 22, 2008 issue of the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry," University of California scientists reported that strawberry polyphenolic compounds promote nitric oxide release and endothelium-dependent relaxation response by activating certain proteinase enzymes in coronary arteries. The May 16, 2009 issue of "Phytomedicine" included a study in which the authors concluded that the liquid extract of strawberry leaf directly exerts vasodilating effects in endothelium, the thin layer of cells that line blood vessel walls. Although heart rate and oxygen utilization did not increase, coronary flow increased up to 45 percent over control values.

Nutrition of Apples

Apples are low in calories, but rich in flavor, fiber and nutrition as they contain a fair amount of vitamin C, vitamin K and several B complex vitamins. One medium sized apple contains 5.7 mg of vitamin C, or 10 percent of the recommended daily value; 3.8 mcg of vitamin K, or 1 percent of the recommended daily value; and 0.1 mg of vitamin B-6, which is 3 percent of the recommended daily value. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommend the antioxidant vitamin C for body tissue maintenance as well as for bone and teeth health. The NIH also credits an adequate intake of vitamin B-6 with a healthy immune system, and notes that this particular B vitamin helps to prevent against anemia and is essential for red blood cell metabolism. The Harvard School of Public Health states that vitamin K is necessary to avoid blood clots and to maintain proper bone density.

Blood-Glucose and Cholesterol Stabilization

A December 2003 study published in the journal "Diabetes Care" discovered that type II diabetics with a daily intake of 1 to 6 g of cinnamon exhibited reduced blood-glucose levels, triglycerides and cholesterol. The participants were given cinnamon in doses of 1, 3 or 6 g per day for 40 days, and all three doses proved to reduce fasting blood glucose, which is a marker for blood-glucose control, by an average of 18 to 29 percent. A similar study was published in the June 2007 edition of "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in which subjects, upon consumption of cinnamon, showed a reduction in blood-glucose levels due to the spice's ability to inhibit the rate at which food is absorbed into the bloodstream. The inclusion of manganese-rich cinnamon with apple tea magnifies its role in metabolizing cholesterol and stabilizing blood-glucose levels.

Gastrointestinal Health

Both apples and cinnamon are rich sources of fiber, which helps prevent health complications such as constipation, hemorrhoids, diverticulosis and possibly colon cancer, according to MayoClinic.com. Fiber accelerates waste removal, which allows harmful toxins to exit the digestive tract. The removal of excess waste may have additional health benefits, such as weight loss, since high-fiber food products tend to be "energy dense," and thus provide fewer calories for the same volume of food.

Orange Pekoe tea is a black tea first brought to the western world in the early 1600s by the Dutch founders of the East India Trading Co. Legend says the “orange” of orange pekoe is a reference to the symbol of quality used by the East India Trading Company. Orange pekoe tea provides a strong flavor and is noted by science to contain nutrients that are good for the body.

Breakfast Complement

In many parts of the world, tea and breakfast go together like ham and eggs in America. Tea is the global beverage of choice next to water according to an article by Jim Hillibish, published in the Dec. 9, 2009 edition of the Enterprise News. Tea lovers in Great Britain voted orange pekoe tea the best choice for a breakfast tea, according to an article in the Sept. 14, 2008 issue of Britain's Telegraph newspaper. British tea master, Giles Hilton, described orange pekoe tea as best suited to the English taste for a rich, strong-tasting black tea, which takes milk well.

Anti-Aging

With America’s exploding majority of “baby boomers” coming of age, nutrients and products that enhance youthfulness and slow down the aging process are all the rage. Preliminary studies suggest that black tea may have anti-aging properties capable of protecting the brain from degenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. According to an animal-based study published in the January 2006 issue of European Journal of Neuroscience, the catechins in tea leaves of green and black teas appear to have a protective effect on the nervous system. Clinical trials with human subjects are needed for further research.

Diabetes

Studies of polysaccharides found in the leaves of the evergreen plant, camellia sinensis, from which the orange pekoe tea is derived, show positive effects in people with diabetes. The polysaccharides appear to slow the absorption of glucose. A study published in the August 2009 issue of the Journal of Food Science found that black tea has the highest amount of polysaccharides of the black, oolong and green tea varieties.

Reduce Stroke Risk

Drinking three cups of orange pekoe or other black teas may prevent onset of ischemic stroke, according to a meta-analysis study published by the American Heart Association Journal in February 2009. People who smoke cigarettes, have diabetes or hypertension are at greater risk for stroke. Individuals currently taking medication for any of the above are advised to consult their physician before adding tea to the diet in order to prevent possible contra-indications.

Pineapples and pineapple tea are rich in Vitamin C, are very low-calorie, are nonfat and also high in water content. All these factors combine to help pineapple and pineapple tea to flush out the body and rid it of water weight. Pineapple is a part of the Bromeliaceae family.

Flushes Out the Body

Pineapples are 87 percent water. Pineapples, and therefore pineapple tea, are also rich in Vitamin C, which is the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant, defending all aqueous areas of the body against free radicals that attack and damage normal cells. The bromelain enzyme, present in pineapples, contains potassium which neutralizes sodium, arginine and certain acids. This helps evacuate water and flushes out the body. Pineapple also drains adipose tissue (fat), which acts as a treatment for cellulite.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

The enzyme bromelain acts as an anti-inflammatory compound and may reduce swelling, according to The University Of Maryland Medical Center. It is also known to treat sore throat, arthritis, gout, and acute sinusitis. The bromelain enzymes present in pineapples and pineapple tea also encourage healing and may be beneficial in treating bruises, sprains and strains, tenderness and pain.

Assists with Digestion

Another health benefit of pineapple tea is its ability to support digestion. The Feminist Women's Health Center reports that the bromelain found in fresh pineapple can ease indigestion. This enzyme reduces the amino acid bonds in proteins, which fosters digestion.

Eliminates Free Radicals

Pineapples, according to The Mayo Clinic, are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect cells from free radical build up that can lead to asthma, colon cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis. Excessive free radicals cause plaque build up of atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease. Free radicals can also cause the airway spasm that leads to asthma attacks, damage the cells of the colon and can contribute to the joint pain and disability seen in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Mangoes are related to pistachios and cashews, say "Vegetarians in Paradise" website owners Zel and Reuben Allen. The health benefits of drinking mango tea will vary according to the ratio of mango fruit, juice or pulp used when making your tea, and whether the tea is cold-brewed or steeped using boiling water or juice. It will also vary depending on the type of tea used.

Clear Vision, Bone Growth, Immune Functions

Chamomile tea provides the greatest health benefit when mixed with mango juice. A 100g serving of chamomile tea provides 20 IU vitamin A, according to the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. If it is cold-brewed in 100 percent mango juice made from 100g raw mango, pulp included, this increases to 1,102 IU of vitamin A. It also provides 13mg calcium, 177mg potassium, 36mg vitamin C, 43mcg folate, 640mcg beta carotene and 23mcg combined lutein and zeaxanthan. This assumes that you use a juice machine and do not strain the resulting liquid.

Vitamin A aids clear vision, promotes healthy bone growth, assists cell division and differentiation, controls immune functions, assists formation of lymph cells and promotes healthy linings of the eyes, stomach, lungs, urinary tract and intestines, states the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements.

To cold-brew mango tea, fill a clear glass or plastic tea jug with 100 percent mango juice made from fresh, ripe, unpeeled, raw fruit. Add eight to 10 chamomile teabags or eight to 10 tsp. chamomile tea in a tea ball. If you do use teabags, drape the tags over the mouth of the jug to prevent leaching the taste of the paper into your drink. Allow your mango tea to sit for at least four hours, refrigerated, before removing the teabags.

Red Blood Cells, Wound Healing and Protein Synthesis

Tea purists often prefer to steep their leaves in boiling liquid. Boiling your mango juice will destroy its vitamin C and folate content, according to the chart, "Effects of Cooking on Vitamins," from the textbook, "Nutrition in Perspective, 2nd edition," by P.A. Kreutler and D.M. Czajka-Narins.

Vitamin C helps the body create collagen, which aids wound healing, according to the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements. Vitamin C also helps the body break down protein and limit free-radical damage. Folate helps the body make normal red blood cells and prevents anemia.

Diluted Benefits

Reduce all vitamin content by the ratio of water to juice to determine the remaining nutritional content. If you use 2 liters mango juice to 2 liters water, you will have half the nutrients. Use 1 liter of juice to 3 liters of water, and you have one-fourth the nutrients. Since most tea drinkers tend to use more water rather than more juice, beneficial nutrients are lost with each dilution in the strength.

Hydration

Black tea does not have the extra 20 IU vitamin A that chamomile provides, no calcium and no vitamin C and only 5mcg folate. When combined with 100 percent juice made from fresh, raw, unpeeled mangoes, black tea made from mango juice retains the majority of its healthful effects, but when made with boiled juice or as a dilution, it rapidly loses them. Diluted to 3 parts water and 1 part mango juice, it approaches plain tea or water in healthy effects, especially since black tea has a diuretic effect, increasing the speed with which the body sheds water via sweating and urination.

Unless the manufacturer uses 100 percent juice or adds nutrients to the tea, commercial mango teas are little more than flavored water. If the flavor encourages you to drink more fluids, the primary health benefit of mango tea is full hydration. If you are paying higher prices for mango tea because you think you are gaining health benefits, you may be cheating both your body and your wallet.

bittermelon melon

Gohyah tea, or bittermelon tea, is made from bitter melon, which is a member of the squash family. Bitter melon looks much like a cucumber with bumpy skin that when first picked is a yellow-green color and after it ripens, it turns a yellow-orange color. Bitter melon tea offers many health benefits and is becoming a popular tea option.

Diabetes

Gohyah tea produces insulin that is similar in nature to the bovine insulin that is used by many diabetics. According to the Natural Health Remedies website, the plant insulin produced by bitter melon works in the same way as bovine insulin. Drinking gohyah tea may not replace injected insulin but it can reduce the amount of insulin needed by a type 2 diabetic. The substance that is responsible for lowering blood sugar in those that drink gohyah tea, momordicin, also gives the tea its bitter taste.

Cancer

Bitter melon can help fight the growth of breast cancer cells, according to "Cancer Research," a journal published by the American Association for Cancer Research. As of 2010, scientist are continuing to study bitter melon for its ability to prevent breast cancer and to be used as a chemo-preventative measure for patients currently suffering from breast cancer.

Antioxidant

Extracts from bitter melon has been shown to have anti-oxidant properties. The extracts show a difference in free radical scavenging activity, according to Zhion Health. Free radicals may contribute to many diseases including cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants help protect cells from free radicals and can be found in a variety of food including gohyah tea.

Soursop, a large fruit weighing five pounds or more, is native to tropical America. High in vitamins B and C, soursop has an acidic flavor, and its juice is used in cold drinks and frozen fruit recipes. Tea made from soursop has been shown to provide health benefits, particularly related to the prevention and treatment of some forms of cancer. Consult your doctor about using soursop tea to treat a medical condition.

Acetogenins

Soursop tea may help prevent some forms of cancer, according to a study published in the January 2011 issue of the journal "Pharmacognosy." In the study, soursop roots were tested against tissue cultures of human lung cancer, leukemia, cervical cancer and breast cancer. Results showed effectiveness against all forms of cancer tested. Researchers attributed the anti-cancer effects of soursop to high concentrations of alkaloid compounds and acetogenins -- a family of compounds with antibiotic, antifungal and antiparasitic effects. The results of this study show promise for the use of soursop as a cancer preventive.

Throat and Lung Cancer

Soursop was included in a list of plants with significant anti-cancer properties in a Brazilian study published in the November 2010 issue of the journal "Molecules." The study evaluated anti-cancer potential, antioxidant ability and content of tannins -- bitter compounds with some medicinal value -- of 14 Brazilian medicinal plants. Soursop was not found to be high in antioxidants or tannins, but it showed effectiveness against throat cancer and lung cancer. Other plants with anti-cancer potential included Lantana camara, Handroanthus impetiginosus and Mentzelia aspera.

Method of Activity

A study published in the August 2009 issue of the journal "Phytotherapy Research" found that acetogenin compounds in soursop prevent cancer by inhibiting energy production in cancer cells. In the laboratory animal study, soursop acetogenin extract showed anticancer properties similar to the cancer chemotherapy drug doxorubicin. One extract tested in the study was effective against a strain of human cervical cancer cells.

Colon Cancer

Colon cancer may respond well to treatment with soursop bush tea, according to researchers at Laboratorio de Química Orgánica, Escuela Nacional de Ciencias Biológicas, Instituto Politécnico Nacional, México. The tissue culture and laboratory animal study determined that soursop acetogenin extract exerted toxic effects on human colon cancer cells. The study was published in the December 2008 issue of the journal "Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin."

Ovarian Cancer

Researchers at the Graduate Institute of Natural Products, Kaohsiung Medical University, Taiwan, reported the discovery of two new acetogenin compounds from soursop in a study published in the November 2004 issue of the "Journal of Natural Products." The new compounds showed moderate effectiveness against human ovarian cancer in a tissue culture experiment.

The health benefits of red raspberries, their leaves and red raspberry leaf teas have interested botanists since the first century, according to the Berry Health Benefits Network at Oregon State University. Native American, European, Ayurvedic and Chinese healers have used dried red raspberry leaves to create teas for many centuries. The leaves provide a pleasant tasting tea that has both nutritional and medicinal qualities. To obtain the healing benefits of red raspberry leaves, steep crushed, dried leaves in cold water for a few hours, boil the mixture for 10 minutes, strain and drink.

Nutrients

Raspberry leaves contain iron, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and a form of calcium that is absorbed and assimilated easily. The tea contains large amounts of vitamins C and E, as well as vitamins A and B-complex. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory qualities and works in conjunction with anti-stress B vitamins. The carotenoids of red raspberry leaf provide vitamin A, which strengthens your immune system and helps maintain healthy skin. Vitamin E promotes better circulation. Red raspberry leaf also contains essential minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium and an easily assimilated form of calcium.

Pregnancy and Labor

Red raspberry leaf is a common ingredient in pregnancy teas because this herb may help maintain uterine health, decrease nausea and ease labor pains. Health care providers may recommend red raspberry leaf tea only in the second and third trimester. Some are cautious about using raspberry leaf during the first or even the second trimester, because components, such as fragrine, in the tea may stimulate the uterus and cause premature contractions. Raspberry leaf tea may help regulate labor pains during childbirth. However, according to Drugs.com, pharmacologic evidence in humans has not established the effectiveness of using raspberry leaf tea during pregnancy or childbirth. Always check with your health practitioner before using any remedies you have not discussed with her.

Menstrual Cycle

Historically, various cultures have used raspberry leaf tea as a folk remedy for women's conditions. Strong red raspberry leaf tea has been used for heavy menstrual bleeding and to help relieve abdominal cramping and menstrual pain. Raspberry leaf tea can tone and nourish the ovaries as well as the uterus, and this can be very helpful during perimenopause when you may experience spotting or menstrual cycle may become erratic. Raspberry leaves contain iron citrate, which helps purify blood and produce blood cells.

Gastrointestinal

Raspberry leaves contain astringents called tannins. Astringents are medically used to reduce swollen mucous membranes that may result from inflammations in parts of the gastrointestinal system. The high tannin content of raspberry leaves produces an astringent effect on the intestinal walls, thereby alleviating some of the irritation caused by diarrhea. To ensure a high concentration of tannins in the tea you make, boil the leaves in water for at least 10 minutes. Raspberry leaf tea also may soothe stomach aches caused by anxiety and stress, and its fruity flavor makes it easier to give children who may resist drinking a stronger tasting tea.

Sore Throat

Red raspberry leaves have been made into teas that can be used for gargling when you have a sore throat. The astringent nature of raspberry leaves endows the herb with a wide range of applications, such as the treatment of swollen tissues in the throat and mouth. If you have a sore throat or inflamed mouth, prepare the tea, let it cool and gargle with the lukewarm tea.

The lychee is a tropical and subtropical fruit tree, which is primarily found in Asia, Southern Africa and Mexico. It is a fragranced fruit with a sweet taste. The fruit is 3 to 4 cm long and 3 cm in diameter. The outside is covered by a pink-red, roughly-textured rind that is inedible but easily removed by hand as one who eats the fruit peels the fruit individually. They are eaten fresh from harvest from the tree, while others make it into desserts with added honey and most often they serve this concoction chilled. It is a favorite dessert fruit of many diners.

The Chinese consider the lychee, which is a red, heart-shaped fruit, a symbol of romance and love. And they make the lychee tea out of it. This tea offers a strong, pleasantly sweet aroma. The reddish brown brew has a light, sweet honey-like taste. This is s a treat served by the Chinese whether hot - or over ice.

Tea-drinking is a usual ritual in almost all occasions in Chinese society. Ceremonies are usually done with the tea as the drink served. There is no occasion in China where tea is not present, especially in dinners which are long elaborate occasions enjoyed by the food-loving Chinese. Such sumptuous dinners usually end with the tea-drinking, as it is believed that tea is the best drink that can help in the digestion of the food intake of the diners.

Even in hotels - the guests are normally greeted in their rooms when they first check in with the usual tea container and the tea cups, along with the fruits that are in season. The lychee fruit is of course one of the fruits available for the hotel guest to enjoy as a welcome treat.

Lychee tea, like the other kinds of tea in Chinese society, is believed to be good for one's health. Well, considering that there seems to be no obese Chinese at all, there is logic in their drinking of tea. Even with lavish Chinese meals that they indulge in, the lychee tea and other kinds of tea help in maintaining their good physiques.

The good news for other countries now is that lychee tea is now available for other nationalities. The British are into tea-drinking; maybe Americans should also learn the art of tea drinking. Perhaps, this tea drink, instead of the colas and other fattening drinks now taken by the young, should be the drink really of all people - young and old alike. The health benefits of lychee tea included - cannot be overemphasized.

Nutrition Information: Bagged Peach Black Tea

Peach black tea sold in teabags for brewing has a very similar nutritional profile to regular black tea. When you brew peach black tea from bags using distilled or tap water, an 8 oz. cup of tea contains only 2 calories, according to the USDA. In the case of Teavana brand Ginger Peach Apricot Black Tea, The Daily Plate reports that there are zero calories in a cup of brewed tea. Brewed peach black tea contains no fat, dietary fiber or sugars, and has less than 1 g carbohydrates in every cup. If you add sweeteners such as sugar or honey, the calorie content of the tea will increase. Adding creamers, dairy or soy milk will increase the calorie, fat and protein content of the tea.

Nutritional Information: Bottled Peach Black Tea

Flavored black and green teas are often prepackaged and sold as cold bottled drinks in the soda section of supermarkets and convenience stores. Often, this type of bottled flavored tea contains a significant quantity of sugar or artificial sweetener. This increases the overall calories and carbohydrates present in the drink. For example, the bottled drink Archer Farms Peach Black Tea contains 70 calories and 16 g carbohydrates in each bottle.

Nutritional Benefits

Brewed peach black tea, without sweeteners or creamers, is beneficial if you are trying to lose weight or control weight by limiting your daily calorie intake. This type of tea is virtually calorie-free, and provides you with a hot or cold drink option without adding calories. Both brewed and bottled teas contain virtually no fat -- another nutritional benefit if you are following a low-fat diet. The bottled teas may have more calories than brewed teas, but even a bottled tea contains significantly fewer calories than a sweetened soda beverage such as a cola. Drinking bottled peach tea instead of soda drinks on a regular basis can save you a lot of calories over time.

Caffeine Benefits

Whether brewed or bottled, peach black tea typically contains caffeine. Unless the teabags or bottle are marked "caffeine free" or "decaffeinated," you can assume the tea contains some caffeine. Caffeine may have a small beneficial effect on your weight loss efforts, according to registered dietitian Katherine Zeratsky. In the short term, the caffeine in black tea can work as an appetite suppressant and may give your metabolism a quick boost. Caffeine also has diuretic effects on certain people, meaning that you could lose water weight through increased urination. However, research regarding caffeine and weight loss is not definitive, and further study is required to understand the connections between caffeine and weight loss.

Antioxidant Benefits

Black tea and green tea both have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect your health in certain ways -- specifically, by reducing your risk of heart disease or certain types of cancer. According to a study published in the May 2000 issue of the "International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition," the antioxidant properties of tea vary according to the means of preparation. Black tea brewed from leaves has a greater concentration of flavonoids -- tea's antioxidants -- than black tea brewed from bags. Adding milk or creamer reduced the tea's flavonoid content. To get the maximum antioxidant effect from peach black tea, brew the tea from leaves rather than using bags or prepared bottled drinks.
