--0.1--     Tea Sourcing - Count Down To Autumn Harvest Begin!

As the summer passes away and winter looms near, you may fancy a darker tea.

Oolong tea is ideal for this turning of the season. And the best time to buy one is mid October.

Why? Because oolong tea can be harvested 4 times a year. The October harvest is widely regarded as the most fragrant.

Avoid the temptation to buy earlier. Vendors frequently pass late summer tea as autumn tea. It is not worth it: Summer tea is the lowest quality.

The exciting news is, after months of sampling, I will be pre-launching a Tieguanyin Wang (Iron Goddess King) in mid October!

If it isn't the best of the best, I wouldn't bother. And I will invite you to try it out - at the Pre-Launch offer price plus our unique 100%-satisfaction-and-best-value guarantees!

You really can't lose. The one-month count-down will begin now!

--4--     Ask The Editor - Green Tea and Phase II Enzymes

Naomi has kindly emailed me an interesting article below.

Green tea rejuvenates. How? By encouraging the production of Phase II enzymes.

According to Dr Treadwell, Phase II enzymes help our bodies detoxify.

A study found that taking green tea supplement for 4 weeks increases glutathione S-transferase (GST), an important member of the detoxifying Phase II enzymes (there are over 200), by 20%.

My only comments to the article is that 800 milligrams of green tea extract a day seems A LOT. But with a high quality loose green tea, you can put such concerns to rest. Read to see what Dr Treadwell says.
