So you love tea in some or all of its forms. But what about kombucha? If you’ve never heard of it or think you understand it, you might discover you have lots to learn.
Kombucha is simply tea that’s been fermented and sometimes flavored. The fermenting process adds loads of good-for-you elements. A finished kombucha drink can provide health benefits in the form of antioxidants and probiotics. You’ll find this drink all over, especially in health food stores. The problem is, pre-made bottles are pricy—but making it at home is not. The key is to follow particular steps to create a product that’s good for you and safe to drink. Those include following key brewing and storing steps, as well as understanding the kombucha’s SCOBY—the crucial element that is just extra yeast and bacteria. Making your own kombucha also allows you to experiment in interesting ways—adding it to dressing or using it in a beauty routine. This fun infographic explains the basics and offers inspiring kombucha info you’ll want to use—today.

Tea has been around for thousands of years, and our ancestors probably knew more about its medicinal properties than we do but one thing is official – tea has some awesome health benefits. There’s boatloads of research supporting health benefits of tea.
Nowadays we use the term ‘tea’ liberally to describe many different kinds of herbal infusions and drinks, but not everything we refer to as tea is actually ‘Real Tea’.
…Wait! How do I know what Real Tea is?
We’ve all heard that tea has a lot of health benefits. In case you were wondering, this isn’t just an opinion it’s rather a proven fact. There are many studies out there that show that tea is a super drink, and helps with weight loss. A meta-analysis of many studies regarding the health benefits of tea was published in the December 2013 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The results of this study are important because its revelations were also supported by the Tea council of USA.
So let’s have a closer look at many health benefits of tea under the empirical light shed by this study, shall we?
Derived from the rich traditions of Japanese culture, Matcha tea has been enjoyed in the Far East for centuries. It made its way to the west not too long ago, and now it’s considered to be one of the most powerful super foods that are available in the market today.
Have you ever made herbal infusions? You might be thinking you haven’t, but chances are that you make them once or twice a day everytime you make tea.
You can always grab easy to prepare tea bags, but you probably won’t reap the rewards as much as if you prepare your own medicinal blends. Of course we love our convenience, but I personally love results even more. If you’re serious about learning how to brew medicinal teas then it is essential that you learn how to use dried herbs in decoctions and infusions.
My favorite thing on a cold morning is a nice mug of hot tea. I used to be more of a coffee drinker, until I learned the benefits of tea.

Let’s take a look at loose leaf tea, its benefits, and how to make it…
