No, I asked for it at the local Mercado-
Which is one of our larger Latino Markets that has everything, but not the Jamaica leaves nor the Ortigas! We have a few other Latino markets so I will b in search.
Thanks

One of the local beauty shop owners here has shared her secret tea recipe with me. I drank it for two weeks before Joe and I left for Vegas and started it back yesterday. Not a good tea if your not close to a restroom, but its doing its job.

Take a gallon of water, empty out about 2 cups (save), and add a handful of Jamaica leaves to the gallon of water. No need to boil. With the water you removed, add a good size pinch full of Romero (Rosemary) and boil into a tea. Strain and add to the Jamacia tea. Drink this throughout the day, unsweetened of course. It really REALLY cleans you out! Supposed to also help with breaking down the fat and is a natural diuretic.

I have a gallon in the fridge here at work and a gallon at home emoticon

At work I drink green tea with nothing inside no sugar no honey.

If I am out there I love to drink real mint tea. This one I do take with some honey.

My visitors only like Ceylon tea. Of the black teas it is the one I like best and always with a little bit of milk. Very British!

As for the sugar intake. I prefer to take dark cain sugar just one teaspon is 16 calories. Unfortunately many of my vitamins contain fake sugars so I can't completely ban them.

Every season has its charm.

This is a Repost from awhile back, just wanted to remind everyone of how Beneficial Tea is.
When You Want to Increase Your Metabolism...

Drink This:
Green Tea

Catechins, the powerful antioxidants found in green tea, are known to stoke your metabolism, making it burn hotter and torch more calories.
A study by Japanese researchers found that participants who consumed 690 milligrams of catechins from green tea daily had significantly lower body-mass indexes and smaller waist measurements than non tea drinkers.

So who has been Drinking their Te?
With this cold weather we should warm our bodies up with something good for us, like Te instead of
Café and all those unnecessary calories y todo.
Te for Today was Organic Chai con Agave and a cinnamon stick.

Alright so I took on a second job and fell into the Coffee trap. But now since I have been working out I have noticed my heart rate sky rocketing. So back to the good old Te. Which is so easy to make and take with me on the go.
I keep losing my thermos's though LOL.

Tea saved my life this week. I had a training at work on Thursday. Our trainings always include LOTS of junk food. I armed myself with a thermos of herbal tea. Instead of eating I sipped tea. It was so satisfying and I didn't even miss the food. It was like a REVELATION! I'm going to be drinking tea all the time. It tastes good. It's good for you. It definitely kills the cravings. And it helps with the water quota. Yeah tea!

If you need to sweeten your tea like I do.
Try and use honey or sugar not sugar substitutes.
The sugar substitutes may be low or even obsolete in calories but they are carcenogenic they are cancer causing stay away from them.
It's hard here we are trying to lose weight and eat healthy and we have all these products that make us feel like they are the better choice but in reality there not.

hehe thanks, i really love my tea, my country is one of the biggest tea consumers in the world.

Now have you yet noticed all this hoopla about "teavalize" being advertised here, in spark? well the principle of the program is great but we can do it without expend tons of money in it, the home made version could be far more convenient, and with even more benefits, ill make a post about it right now on my page so feel free to check it out ^^

hey there girls,

this is my first post in the team i beliave, funny that is about tea, i love all things tea, i live in chile in a city with tax free import/export so i get great tea in leaves that i buy by the pound, my current stash have:

-Ceylan orange pekoe: i drink it alone, or with hierba luisa or cedrón (is similar tasting to bergamota, the fruit that flavors earl grey)

-Red tea (have a wonderful earthy flavor)

-Red tea with jazmin (its softer in the palate)

-Green tea (im not huge into green alone but with honey is lovely)

-Green tea with jazmin (have a deep rich golden colour and the most enticing fragance, i just love this one)

Well and in tea bags i get earl grey, and a bunch of black teas flavored with cinnamon, clove, apple, etc...

all for the love of tea :P

The english breakfast tea is delicious nice and warm

I drink green tea cold with lemon... it's my favorite drink!!! But I just used up my last tea bags... I really wish i would get the real stuff and make it myself instead of using tea bags, but as long as I'm drinking that and not coffee I'm good.

Hey Ladies...today is day four of drinking tea. I haven't had any coffee since 10/9. That's a SUPER streak for me because you know how us latinos do. I was drinking cafe con leche out of my "bibi." LOL!

I feel like I have so much "animo." I love it!

I've only been drinking the green tea w/ red antioxidants but I did buy non-caffeine herbal teas and those I will save for night time especially now in the winter when I want to end my day with a nice warm beverage.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE SUGGESTION!

The white Chai tea is basically white tea leaves verses black tea leaves. The white tea leaves whose silvery buds are the least processed of all teas contain the highest amount of antioxidants.

This particular chai tea is organic and is combined with Ginger,Cardamom and Cinnamon.
I have had the processed Chai teas with whip cream y todo but since I am serious about getting healthy and losing weight I try to stay away from those and stick with the simple organic ones that are
Good for you and taste good Hot or cold.
I prefer Hot.
I read all the labels,and I read a lot in general.
If ever one of you feels I am incorrect or you have some knowledge to add, Please do so.
Thanks.

I wondered about white chai tea. I love spiced chai iced tea! And I'm not talking about the chai frapps. @ starbucks. LOL those are yummie and better than some of the other stuff there, for sure. I am a coffee freak. I have learned to limit it to the two cups in the morning and sometimes, not often a stop for that frapp. I was talking about. But I stick to my auga mostly. Wait that is a different thread. Ha ha.

So is the white chai good hot or cold or both?

I love how informed you are about your teas. That is great!

Green Tea:
It has been found that consuming large amounts of coffee and caffeine can lead to food cravings, increase one's appetite, and induce stress-related eating.
Green tea is a wonderful alternative to coffee in that it does provide a little caffeine but also contains beneficial antioxidants. So drink up!

Another great tea to drink is cinnamon tea. Research has shown it curbs cravings and is soothing. Its also very yummy and reminds me of the times my mom would fix it for us when we were kids :)

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

When You Want to Increase Your Metabolism...

Drink This:
Green Tea

Catechins, the powerful antioxidants found in green tea, are known to stoke your metabolism, making it burn hotter and torch more calories. A study by Japanese researchers found that participants who consumed 690 milligrams of catechins from green tea daily had significantly lower body-mass indexes and smaller waist measurements than non tea drinkers.
