Wellness Wednesday!

Hi Framers!

I hop you all are having a great Wednesday so far.

If you are thinking about making a quick run to Starbucks later…don’t.

Check this article out and find out why!

But if you’re one of those people (like myself) who just can’t resist a nice cup of whatever.

I have a solution for you-TEA! No artificial flavoring or sweetener added!

For those of you who might be new to the whole tea experience and are not sure of which ones to try, here is a little tip: The darker the tea the higher the caffeine. 

Black teas are great if you are having a hard time staying awake. Add a small shortbread biscuit with your Earl/ Lady Grey or English Breakfast and you are all set to watch the exciting Cricket match…or Sherlock/ Downton/ Pride and Prejudice or whatever else you prefer!

Jasmine Green tea is also a wonderful choice for various health reasons, including losing weight. Aside from white tea, it’s the lightest of the teas and has no caffeine.

Warning: It is addicting! I drank two/ three cups of Twining’s Jasmine Green tea in one day. Very addicting.  Just FYI.

Teas like Wild Sweet Orange and Passion from Tazo are perfect if you like a little flavoring once in awhile. Or spice things up a bit with Tazo’s Organic Chai tea!

So to put it plainly:

TEA is better than fatty, sugary, whipped-creamy anything and you never feel guilty after having a cup…or two.

So enjoy a nice cup of tea (iced or warm the next you time have the urge for a coffee shop)!
