Tea: A Simple Solution to Modern Life’s Modern Ills

Tea

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant;
if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
– Anne Bradstreet.

 

The past few decades have shown how the health of the working professionals has continually been deteriorating because of a fast lifestyle. For temporary relief or pleasure, they cling to coffee, beer, alcohol, cigarettes, meat, and fast food. All this works fine in the life cycle of human being, as long as it doesn’t go overboard. Now, the problem arises when you cling only to the pillars mentioned above of the fast, modern lifestyle. These habits are the primary reasons for lifestyle discomforts, such as stress, hypertension, heart disease, insomnia, addictions, and obesity. The wrong chords of working professionals ring when they massively indulge in work, bad lifestyle habits, and escapes using temporary means. If you are in these circumstances, your equation needs a hand. The answer is tea.

 

The first look

If we give the tea a significant throwback, you will be bewildered how royal it was. It brought about a sense of royalty and luxury to people. Before the 1700s, this beverage was precious. It was considered such a great luxury item that it had to be smuggled between countries and parties in various parts of the world. Even colonized countries faced a significant amount of pain in tea plantations as the countrymen and women were enslaved to work.

And look at us today boasting about pizza and other junk. When you look at this drink with the prism of benefits, it is no longer just a high commodity. You won’t be wrong if you call it the elixir of life, as it proffers you immense health benefits. Tea throws a rescue rope even before you fall into the well.

 

More about tea

TeaThis beverage will be your great friend, if not, a spiritual friend when you scream through the roller coaster of life. Every tea type has benefits that can totally help you avoid lifestyle discomforts and soothe you during your moments of stress, dismay, and confusion. Tea has these extraordinary benefits because it is pumped with antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols. These components help you maintain your health and keep yourself mentally alert.

Bearing in mind all the benefits this beverage gives you, and the royalty it carries, one should directly storm to the doors of Ono Teas. With different product categories, Ono Teas provides you moments of relief and pleasure amidst your whirlpool of a hectic life and other lifestyle disorders. As a working professional, office, and pollution might prove to be your greatest enemies. And taming your enemies has never been easier.

 

Tea works wonders, one sip at a time

TeaNow let’s get into the macro and micro of factors affecting your stress. Let’s understand how tea can be the pedestal of relief for you.

Herbal teas are full of medicinal properties. They help soothe your digestive system and hydrate your skin while the antioxidants repair you from within. The world acclaims green teas for their therapeutic benefits. They are least processed and have polyphenol and catechin in high amounts. When you are baked in your work life, and office-related stress, a cup of green tea or chamomile tea can soothe you magically. They work like a magical potion.

On the health side, if you want to shed some weight, and soothe your bones internally, you can always have the turmeric herbal tea. It not only arouses you into the taste and moment of it but also can be your friend for better health too.

Ginger and Tulsi, as we know it, have always been our important herb for immunity and antibacterial properties. You can now enjoy our Tulsi Sweet Lemon and Tulsi Lemongrass, and prevent yourself from significant inflammatory and infectious diseases. Ginger tea also helps to calm nausea, and it soothes any individual quickly.

 

Tea gives you a moment to yourself, the right way

TeaBe it a lifestyle, friendship, solitude, conversations, or luxury; tea will provide you with the right steer to get past your work stress. For today’s working professionals, it is quite hard to find a moment to themselves. They constantly struggle to share time with their loved ones. And when they do, it is often unhealthy. Beer, pizza, and coffee have become the new fast, but it can never be royal. The question is not how high your life is instead how royal you treat yourself.

You can celebrate moments with your loved ones by sharing a cup of Hojicha tea after work. Or you can find peaceful sleep after long hours of office stress by enjoying gentle sips of Pure Chamomile tea.

If you want to add a punch of taste and aroma to your lifestyle, then take a moment to appreciate the Tulsi Lemongrass tea. Our Classic Green tea is remarkable in helping one to avoid fast-food-lifestyle consequences. It has compounds that aid in preventing oral bacteria. It is also a great shield against cholesterol.

You can also enjoy the company of other members in the family of tea. These include Chinese teaDarjeeling tea, Assam tea, Nilgiri tea, and Black tea. All of these types promise you a significant shift in life. They help you fight health problems and provide inner contentment.

 

To summarise

It is in the face of the young working generation to cope up with extreme lifestyle discomforts, such as stress, insomnia, anxiety, and depressions. But you have a choice. You can sit in your yoga pants by listening to heavenly binaural beats and streak through the day smoothly by getting your work done. Or you can walk to and fro across the corridor of your office by smoking a cigarette having a stressful discussion with your inner self.

In a world where fast food is glorified, let’s embrace what nature gives us. We enable you to battle all discomforts and concerns emanating from the modern lifestyle. With the daily hustle and work life and a backyard full of different moods and moments, what could be better than cherishing life’s presents with a cup of tea on the table? Live life tea size!

Drinking Tea – Is It Only A Fashionable Affair of The Past?

Drinking tea

Tea isn’t just a steaming, hot beverage. Instead, it is a source of joy – one that can be enjoyed with family, friends and even by one’s own self. It is a beverage to flaunt with. For me, tea is sensational and romantic. I enjoy it most while sitting with my hubby, browsing the television or laying back cracking jokes, sharing laughter or just reading a book. Drinking tea brings so much pleasure, and it’s one of the simplest ways to shut off the day’s stresses. So, how would you prefer your cup of tea? Would you care to share?

As a kid, I remember that tea time gatherings used to be a lot more fun. They used to involve beautiful porcelain tea sets that were the untouchables otherwise, but a must at the family get-together. It used to be a mega food affair with loads of bakery items taking their turn at the table. Tea becomes even more delicious when there are snacks to go along. Tea cakes to bite-size sandwiches, pastries to lemon tarts, cupcakes to mincemeat pies; ah such mouth-watering delights to savour upon. Hmm! Can still feel my mouth drooling with the perception of them.

Childhood recollections are so beautiful! Memories are endless, and it just takes moments for our mind to fill up with them. Tea times used to be so much more fashionable then what they are today. I wonder why tea times lost their charm. According to me, neither tea lovers have reduced in count nor has coffee taken over the love of tea.

I guess people have lost the will to interact and share. Nowadays, everyone seems to be so busy that we have forgotten the urge to sit and relax. Or to take out a little while for ourselves. Holding a cup of tea, lounging on the terrace and gazing at the beautiful sky. This is another reason why people seem to suffer from depression and stress-related issues. Because we are not able to keep up with day-to-day problems. Having only our laptop, iPad or cell phone to interact with have left us good for nothing. So, get out there, grab a cup or two and zing up some tea. Invite friends or family over and sit, laugh and be happy. Be human!!

Tea parties used to bring together fashion, clothing purses, books, pretty tea sets, table covers, and many such things. Tea parties were also known as high teas that used to be a delightful time for the ladies to get together and gossip. And I’m sure those were a superb source of relaxation. It is a proven truth from science that people who interact more with their friends or family are healthier and stay at bay from the harmful effects of stress and tension. Nowadays, people are becoming more and more secluded. Although the trend for dining out has increased a lot, drinking tea and the tea fiasco has lost its charm.

The beautifully handcrafted crochet table covers have almost gone extinct and these days dining tables barely have covers on them. Then another blow to the lovely tea times came with the introduction of big mugs that replaced the beautiful tea sets and the associated cutlery and many other delicacies. However, all these changes remained unable to impress my mom. In this day and age of tea mugs, my mother still craves for her cup and saucer. Another blow to the tea fab was the entry of tea bags which also led to do away with loose leaf tea and in came the more comfortable-to-handle tea bags.

I appreciate Ono Teas’ initiative to revive the tea culture amongst the youth. To them drinking tea is as important as drinking the right kind of tea. They not just offer a range of premium teas but also educate and inform their patrons about the salient features and benefits of different teas. I particularly like the way they categories their teas suiting the mood of the drinker. For instance, their ‘lifestyle’ category focuses on teas that boost the drinker’s health. They offer teas for proactive care, lifestyle disorders, and preventive care.

Their ‘conversations’ category is a brilliant bouquet of fine teas that stimulate interactions and engagements among people. Their ‘solitude’ line-up is a great way for one to relax and reflect upon their life’s moments.

I remember throwing a tea party one evening for my dear friends, some weeks back. I brought upon this party as the occasion to let my friends taste Ono Teas’ Peppermint tea and Kashmiri Kahwa. Not only did we regale in these flavours but also experienced a softly-enhanced excitement in our conversations and spirits!

Today life is fast-paced than ever. To me, it is much more important now, to stop by and relax. Grab a cup of tea and a book and sit and enjoy it downing each sip. Tea is fashionable, and it should stay so. Tea shops and cafes should be brought to life where people should sit together and speak their hearts out.

Drinking tea is not just therapeutic for our souls, but it is a celebration of everything in our life. When it comes to parties, people usually uncork their elegant wines. I dare to suggest tea. I think, drinking tea is not just a way of life. It brings out the best in us. Getting together and laughing together holding the beautiful teacups and enjoying each other are the most amazing things of all; which should be lived and relived every time.
