Hallulujah! Tea and Traditions is "born again"!

I miss the shop on Whitlock and visits to restock and have a chat, but realize God's hand in this change and embrace it.

Bless you Mari in your call and obedience in this ministry. Tea and Traditions is truly a "new creation".

Black tea compounds may protect against diabetes
By Stephen Daniells
03/03/2008- Compounds in black tea may be able to mimic insulin and help prevent diabetes, suggests new research from Scotland.
Compounds in black tea called theaflavins and thearubigins were found to be able to mimic the effects of insulin, according to the results of the study published in the journal Aging Cell.
The study looks set to add to an ever-growing body of science linking consumption of the beverage to a wide range of health benefits, including lower risk of certain cancers, weight loss, and protection against Alzheimer's.
"In some studies, black tea consumption has been associated with a lower incidence of heart disease and cancer, but the mechanisms are far from clear," wrote lead author Amy Cameron from the University of Dundee.
