Are there any studies on health benefits of cold brewing tea vs hot brewing?
Hello, I completely avoid sugar as much as possible, and I love drinking dessert teas as a sub for any sweets. However, I find that many have candied fruits, marshmallow or chocolate pieces in the blend. Though I do not actually consume... (more)
I make bulletproof-like coffee most mornings, but some days I don't have time to make it in the morning and just drink it black. I'd like to make a caffeine free butter tea when I get home from work on those days, but I have never seen a recipe... (more)
Being as paleo is rather restrictive on foods that tend to be high on b1, would tea be a good way of supplementing...without the supplement? I know teas in general can be undesirable, and herbal teas in particular can have specific 'side... (more)
Hi guys just wanted your opinion on what happened today when I went out to dinner. I had a green tea with a burger (without the bun) and sweet potato fries. I am grain free and caffeine free (due to anxiety issues) and I had a mini panic... (more)
I am really addicted to my earl gray. I drink around 20 cups a day, black, no sugar. The empire was founded on tea and so is my capacity to function. Is there any ramifications from such large amounts of consumption? I changed over from the... (more)
I'd be worried about your fluoride intake, which as you might know is a neurotoxin. Tea plants tend to love absorbing fluoride. Sure, a cup or two a day for the win, but 20 is for teh fail.
I bought some Yogi tea called Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut. It's pretty tasty, but suspiciously so. I was hoping someone would know more about the ingredients such as natural butterscotch flavor, natural vanilla flavor, natural hazelnut flavor, and... (more)
In reading about Bruce Lee's diet, I came across a few interesting things I'm going to play with. One is eating more frequent meals. I'm trying to stop losing weight and start gaining weight, so, that makes sense. Another interesting one was a... (more)
How many of you have ever tried yak butter tea? What did it taste like? Did you like it, and how was your digestion? Have you tried making it at home with cow butter and milk? I guess it's kind of like the bulletbroof coffee.
According to wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoride_toxicity), excessive fluoride can lead to dental fluorosis and a weakening of bones, but evidently one woman who FOD'd had strengthening of the bones... (more)
I am hoping for an answer beyond "Too much of anything is bad"... I tend to drink quite a bit of green/white tea (I put in 2 bags, one white, one green) from about 8am-12pm. I like to stop at noon as to not have caffeine in the afternoon to aid... (more)
Well, it'd be substantially more fluoride than you would otherwise consume over an extended period of time, even with white tea. It may not be enough to produce fluorosis, but it may interfere with the kinetics of iodide, another halogen.
Any suggestions for teas that go well with butter? Im using green tea at the mo which is alright but would like to try something else, i dont think fruity tea would go that well, i may try coffee but only like really milky coffee so would have to... (more)
So, lately I have noticed that my fingernails have been extra brittle and are peeling. I have started drinking more tea (since I gave up coffee for lent) and I remember reading something that tea inhibits iron absorption, and a lack of iron leads... (more)
I've greatly reduced my coffee intake down to 2 strict cups in the morning. The rest of the day I drink decaf peppermint tea. At first I drank it to get away from the coffee habit but now I enjoy it. I have about 3 cups a day. Any down side? ... (more)
It sure sounds weird to me, but I am willing to experiment! Has anyone tried it, and maybe have some advice? Also, can the combination of tea and fat have the same great effects that coffee and fat produce? The reason I am asking is because I... (more)
Okay.. Sugar. I'm totally baffled by this one and can't figure it out. I know I'm not supposed to have sugar and as far as food goes I'm okay with that. I just use 1 and a half teaspoons in a large cup of tea (I'm in love with earl grey tea and... (more)
I'm not much of a coffee drinker, my last stint as one being during employment with a game publisher with very demanding hours years ago, however I've recently gotten back into green tea. Of course with all of the references to Bulletproof Coffee... (more)
i just don't get the whole 'plunk a gob of fat in my drink and call it a meal' thing. you could eat real food and it would have way more vitamins and minerals. and you can chew it.
Since it's winter, I miss hot cups of tea every morning. Since going paleo I've stopped drinking milk altogether because we can only get homogenized and pasteurized here. My mum won't buy raw grassfed because it's too expensive. I do miss tea. I... (more)
I`ve been using a little bit of tea tree oil mixed with jojoba oil on my skin every night for a couple weeks. It has helped a lot on my skin problems! But I recently read this article... (more)
A friend emailed me a link to this SkinnyMe Tea (Melbourne, Australia based) website asking if it would be a good idea to give it a try. These were my thoughts and I want to know if they are correct or not. It utilises a shrub called a Senna... (more)
Hell yes! Laxative abuse is contiguous with purging and anorexia. People die from this behaviour.
A new sushi restaurant opened near campus and I've been going there about once a week. I get sashimi, which is served on a bed of radish (I assume it's radish... long crunchy almost-tasteless white strips). I put lemon on the sashimi and eat the... (more)
I just made my first fish bone broth a couple weeks ago and it was AWESOME. I'm looking to make a nice gelatin rich fish-y broth that will primarily be consumed like a fish tea. Anyone have suggestions for the best kind of fish/bones to use? (more)
Fish isn't as important as which part of the fish you're using. Fish heads and fins are ideal. Some people throw the skin and spine in there too, but in my opinion all you really need are fish heads.
I've read that to maximally extract flavonoids, one must use more heat and time. This draws out off flavors, so tea snobs eswhew boiling or extended brew times. However, I'm drinking green tea to maximally extract flavonoids and burn fat on... (more)
