Organic Tea

Organic tea gifts are something that I adore and would also recommend friends and relative to gift others. Most of the population in the world loves tea and I would strongly suggest you to buy a good brand of organic chamomile tea, organic green tea or even organic black tea.

Not only is the organic tea a better choice when compared to any other alcohol beverage and a sweet drink full of sugar and calories but it is a healthy drink. 

Benefits of White Tea


The benefit of white tea cannot be overlooked for the antioxidants it offers. Besides, Organic white tea is among the most difficult ones to find among the popular tea brands. You might be able to find out many of the green tea flavours but not the organic white tea because it is rarer and people do not yet appreciate its properties.

In addition, it requires to be handled with care for the features and health benefits. It has to be conserved with extra attention and details for the freshness to be retained.

Green tea for its medicinal benefits is popular throughout the planet. It is generally recommended to reduce obesity. Generally the water used to prepare green tea recipes is mildly warm, according to the taste and the regions it should be around 80 degree centigrade (170degree Fahrenheit).

Green Tea Recipe

  • For preparing green tea, use a pre- heated mug, boil the water and pour 2 to 3 teaspoon of green leaves in the hot water.
  • Allow it to seep in the water for 5 to 15 minutes, depending upon the taste and flavor required.
  • The tea has to be taken hot; you can add sugar and milk if you like.

Yes, but black tea is my favorite.

WriterArtist, My favorite teas are herbal, green, and white. White tea symbolizes exoticism for me, perhaps in part because, if you search for it, you will find it, but oftentimes you do have to search.
I love the landscape of tea plantations.

I didn't know that you need to use warm water with green tea. I have always used hot water, water that had started to simmer. I'll try now colder water and see if there's a difference.
