Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CINCINNATI - Apr 30, 2020 - Known for their expertise in the world of teas, Churchill’s Fine Teas has received a great up-tick in requests for information about tea, herbs, and their natural benefits. In response, Churchill’s created a new line of wellness teas and created unique Hug-in-mug and Send-a-blend care packages to easily and economically stay in touch with family and friends. Locally and nationally, an increase in their Internet orders and in their Click & Collect service shows the consumer is cognizant of the need to consider their lifestyle options within the new confinements of home and are researching options. Now more than ever, people are looking for avenues to help themselves during this critical time. In response to questions, Churchill’s condensed a myriad of information to these basics.
What is it that makes tea so good for you? Antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that prevent damage to cells caused by free radicals in the body. Free radicals are created as a natural waste product by the body, but the amount produced varies based on factors such as genetics, diet, and environmental factors. Antioxidants are found in many of the fruits and vegetables we eat every day. A lot of those super-foods we’ve been hearing about for the last few years are packed with anti-oxidants. The reason tea is such a powerhouse of health is that tea can have as much as eight to 10 times the amount of antioxidants as many fruits and vegetables. Churchill’s has curated and created teas with all of these benefits in mind. Good Fortune Pu-erh tea is a blend of pu-erh tea and super-fruits, and a new Wellness Blend has three powerhouse herbs – tulsi, ashwagandha, and moringa – known for immune-boosting and wellness properties, combined with Vitamin C from orange, mango, and pineapple.
While antioxidants are great for one’s health, there are a wide variety of antioxidants, and different teas have different antioxidants. All of the teas made from the camelia sinensis plant (all real tea comes from a cultivar of the camellia sinensis plant) have similar levels of anti-oxidants overall, but the natural processes that take place in the leaves during the production processes determine which specific anti-oxidant types are present. White and green tea are higher in polyphenols and catechins (two types of antioxidants), but the oxidation process used to turn tea into oolong (partially oxidized) or black tea (fully oxidized) converts polyphenols and catechins into tannins and theaflavins (two different types of anti-oxidants). Puerh tea undergoes an additional fermentation stage that other teas do not go through.
Purple tea uses a specific varietal of camellia sinensis that is high in anthocyanin, the antioxidant that gives blueberries, blackberries, eggplants, and red cabbage their colors. Anthocyanin rich foods are often recommended by dietitians for improvement of cardiovascular health, cognitive function, and as an anti-carcinogenic.
Kathleen Kern, Founder, and co-owner of Churchill’s Fine Teas started Churchill’s in 2003 to inspire people on a tea journey and specializes in loose leaf tea. A tea healthy lifestyle is 3-4 cups of tea a day. There are different brewing methods for each type of tea for the perfect cup.
