San Francisco is home to a number of great teahouses. I’ve introduced a couple of them in the past on the blog here and I’m excited to talk about another: Song Tea.
Tea is best when enjoyed with others. The more tea I drink the more I’m convinced this is true.
I highly recommend finding some people to drink tea with if you’ve never experienced it before. The social aspect of tea makes the whole thing way more enjoyable. In fact, I encourage you to go one step further and start making tea for others. This is especially helpful when you can’t find anyone around you who enjoys tea as much as you do. I don’t know many people who would turn down some free tea!
Allergies suck. In America alone, scientists believe about 50 million people suffer from some kind of nasal allergy. Pharmacies are stocked with all kinds of concoctions designed to provide allergy relief. However, science suggests there might be something missing from those pharmacy shelves: tea.
Research on the health benefits of tea is plentiful, and a simple search on Google will turn up a number of authoritative studies on tea. This is what I found myself doing recently after friend of mine introduced me to a new green tea from Japan: Benifuuki.
