  • 6 Ways Tea Will Take Years Off The Clock

    You've probably heard it before - but maybe not often enough - drinking tea can help reduce the signs of aging.  Not only is tea part of a healthy diet, but it has less caffeine than coffee, and contains powerful ingredients that can fight the signs of aging and help you look and feel your best.  Take a look at the ways tea can help you rewind your skin's mileage:

    1. Antioxidants - Tea is an excellent source of antioxidants.  Antioxidants stabilize free radicals in your body, helping to prevent oxidation - a serious culprit of aging.  Drinking tea regularly will give your skin a fresher and younger glow, as the power of antioxidants can be seen in the youthful appearance of your skin.

    2. EGCG - A powerful super-antioxidant called EGCG has been proven to prevent and even reverse inflammation and the effects of free radical damage from oxidation.  A bonus - there is evidence to suggest it has anti-cancer benefits.  EGCG is found in green tea.  Browse our excellent selection of loose Green Teas today!

    3. Tea Plant Extracts - Tea plant extracts help to protect the elements that compose the skin on your face - elastin and collagen tissues.  Protecting these structures means more elasticity for your face - which means less breakage and wrinkling!  A bonus - other areas of your body that contain these same tissues will benefit as well!

    4. Applied topically - Notice all of those products on the market with green tea or green tea extract?  This is because the same benefits that can be enjoyed from drinking green tea can be seen when applied topically on your face!  They work to prevent free radical damage on the surface of your skin.  There is also some evidence to suggest that by applying pure green tea to your face, you can reduce or even eliminate the appearance of rosacea, a skin condition that causes tiny red bumps or pimples.  By drinking green tea and applying it topically, you can reap the benefits inside and out!  A traditional favorite at BigTeaHouse is our Dragonwell Dream Organic Green Tea.

    5. Jasmine Tea - This fragrant tea is thought to relieve stress and anxiety. Reducing stress is connected with younger looking skin as well as a healthier weight. Stress levels can even increase the damage done by free radicals.  Drink some Jasmine tea to take the edge off a bad day!  At BigTeaHouse, we carry the finest Jasmine Pearls in both organic and conventional varieties.

    6. Tea Bags on Eyes - The caffeine found in tea bags can help reduce the swelling underneath your eyes. If you place cooled tea bags on your eyes for roughly ten minutes, you can reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Tea bags are yet another way tea can heal you inside and out!

    The benefits of tea have been seen throughout history. While many around the world have caught on - some of us need a little convincing. So if you're already a tea fanatic, keep on pouring. If you're not yet convinced that tea is for you, do a little research. Tea comes in all kinds of varieties, flavors and blends, and the possibilities are endless. Different varieties can be found at  Don't miss out on all the great benefits tea has to offer.  Happy sipping!
