Why Drink Tea?


There are many benefits to drinking your favorite organic tea: from pleasing the palate to improving health, there is no single, simple answer.  When tea drinkers are asked “Why should you drink tea?”, it’s easy to answer is often “it tastes greate”, “It relaxes me”, “ It’s healthy” and if we insist, some simply answer  “Why not?” 

You probably have your own list of reasons why you love a freshly brewed cup of hot tea on a cold winter’s day, or why you enjoy a refreshing glass of iced tea in the summer.

But when you choose Gräfenhof Tee, you are not just enjoying high quality tea. From the package to the farmers who grow the tea, Gräfenhof Tea is committed to our tea customers and the health of our planet.

And it would probably take hours to go through the comprehensive list of organic tea benefits, yet the following are a few of the key reasons why tea should be included in your daily routine:

ORGANIC and Environmental Freindly

Gräfenhof Tea’s organic teas are grown in gardens in various parts of the world from India and China to the mountainous regions of Africa, with ideal growing conditions. From the soil to the rainwater used to irrigate the garden, all aspects of cultivation are environmentally friendly. And by the time the tea is ready to be sold, all containers and bags used are fully compostable.

Potential Benefits of Organic Teas

It is no secret that regular tea consumption can have many benefits. Most teas contain catechins, a polyphenol that is a powerful antioxidant. The moderate caffeine content of most teas can also give you an early morning or afternoon boost and help you concentrate. Below are some other ways that drinking these teas can improve your lifestyle:

  • The presence of polyphenolic catechins, including epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
  • The water and caffeine in the tea can reduce appetite throughout the day, which can be very helpful for those looking to lose weight.

Antioxidants in Tea

The term ‘antioxidants’ is often on the lips of health enthusiasts – it has become part of the nutritional lexicon and appears on food labels and in advertising. We all know that antioxidants are good for us, but few understand why.

The Mayo Clinic1 defines antioxidants as “substances that can protect cells from the effects of free radicals”. Free radicals are produced by exposure to certain environmental toxins. Although free radicals cannot always be avoided, eating foods and drinks rich in antioxidants can reduce their effects.

A Wide Range Of Flavors

Whether you prefer pure green or black tea or the spiciness of mint or lemongrass, Gräfenhof Tee has a wide range of teas to suit your taste buds

For many  tea lovers, tea is more than just a drink – it’s an integral part of their lives. And Gräfenhof Tee strives to give tea drinkers the best possible experience, from start to finish. When you choose Gräfenhof Tea, you have the opportunity to drink well.

It May Help Strength the Immune System

After chicken soup, tea is probably the most commonly consumed remedy in times of illness. There is a reason for this, which goes beyond the wonderful feeling of drinking a hot drink: tea contains flavonoids, which are also powerful antioxidants.

Stress Relief

Let’s face it: today’s world is full of stress. Over time, the stress of coping with everyday life can build up and lead to health problems. A simple way to relieve stress in a few minutes is to sit down with a cup of tea. Drinking tea has a calming effect, allowing you to catch your breath and let all your worries go – or at least calm down – before you get on with your day.

A Healthy Drink Choice

Drinking tea daily can help you achieve your ultimate goal. Tea is naturally calorie-free (unless, of course, you add sugar and cream), which means you don’t have to worry about adding calories to your diet with the liquid.

The Social Aspect Of Tea Drinking

Tea has been at the heart of social gatherings for thousands of years. Unfortunately, many people today think that group tea drinking is reserved for the ladies of Victorian society. It is time to banish this misleading stereotype. 

The truth is, there is no better way to meet friends than to invite them over for a cup of organic black tea. You can pour it hot or iced, or mix it with spirits for a refreshing and fun cocktail. 

Tea can help improve health and mental, physical and social well-being. If the above reasons are not enough to convince you to include tea in your diet, perhaps the wonderful taste of a cup of freshly brewed Gräfenhof tea will.
