Nourish Your Body With Tea

Tea has been celebrated for centuries as a powerful tonic to nourish the body. Packed with dynamic healing properties that fortify the immune system, a daily cup of tea acts as a natural preventative remedy to viral infections, aids detoxification, and boosts general good health. It’s no surprise that tea has stood the test of time – from ancient civilisations to contemporary society – to take out the impressive title of the world’s healthiest beverage.

Tea: The ultimate health hack

There’s a lot of advice out there when it comes to the best ways to nourish your body. From detoxification, to unleashing the benefits of superfoods, to sourcing antioxidant-rich foods to fuel your mind and body, to ensuring you’re receiving maximum hydration. Experts encourage us to seek ways to lower our cholesterol and blood pressure, and we’re inundated with dietary advice about ways we can lower our risk of stroke and various cancers. It’s kind of overwhelming trying to keep up with the everchanging recommendations, right?

That’s where tea steps up to become the health-hacking hero of every household! Did you know a daily cup of Madura Tea can tick the box on every one of the health recommendations listed above, plus provide a whole host of additional health benefits? Tea, in its many delicious and varied forms, is nature’s greatest gift when it comes to nourishing the body!

Sip your way to a calmer mind

And it’s not just your body that’s being nourished. The research is in to prove that tea is becoming increasingly popular as a form of stress relief. While it’s been common knowledge tea is the great relaxant, everywhere from the mountains of China to the tea houses of Japan and the kitchens of India, it seems Australia’s love affair with tea has significantly increased over the past five years. Today 50% of Aussies drink at least one cuppa a week, compared with only 38% seven years ago.

One popular theory for this increase in consumption is that the simple act of making tea is, in itself, a form of stress relief. Steeped in ritual, spirituality, tradition, and culture, the ‘gentle art’ of tea making carries connotations of comfort, mediation, and peace.

Every step of the tea making process works together to deliver a wonderful sensory experience. The sound of water as you fill the kettle, the bubbling as it comes to the boil, the vapour of steam as you pour the water into your cup. Then there’s the exotically fragrant aroma, the richness of colour, the heat in your hands as you cradle your cup, and finally … the distinctive taste of pure, fresh, quality leaves.

When you apply this sort of sensory mindfulness to your tea making, and take time out for yourself to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, your mind is going to feel naturally calmer. Our top tip to really make an occasion of your ‘time out’ for tea. Find a comfortable chair, sip slowly, savour the taste, and appreciate the myriad health benefits nourishing your body with every mouthful.

Tea: The everyday comfort drink

How many times have you heard someone say, “I’ll put the kettle on,” in times of crisis? Tea is known around the world as the ultimate comfort drink, with the ability to soothe, warm, and fortify. There’s nothing quite like a steaming mug of tea to calm the nerves, dry the tears, quench the thirst, warm the heart, or provide solace during difficult times.
The simple act of a ‘cuppa and a chat’ has a powerfully positive effect on the mind, as well as the body.
