Let us put the kettle on straight away and brew that pot of tea as soon as possible. And after we have added just a little organic honey to our mug, because this natural tea might prove to be a bit bitter to some readers’ palates, we will give it a little stir, take a careful sip, because the tea is delicious when drunk hot it can be chilled, iced, or even (in powder form) be added to your favorite organic smoothie mix.
It would be disingenuous to suggest that most organic and health lovers will not need much motivation to purchase ashitaba tea, raw or in powdered and bottled form, because believe this, many health and organic living enthusiasts are still at the early learning or development stages of how to live and fend for themselves organically and/or sustainably. The chances are very good that they will not have heard of the now famous Japanese Kenko Ashitaba tea until now.
In fact, not long ago, neither did we. So, here we are to tell you more. We have been waxing lyrical for a little longer than planned, so let us get on with our brief introduction to ashitaba tea. Needless to say, it is very good for you. Ashitaba is proven as a health and longevity tonic going back thousands of years to ancient Japan in whose cultural traditions have also been included the famous natural remedy medical practices.
Today, the tea is typically described as the perfect antidote to today’s modern lifestyles in which not much thought by the general public is given to living healthily and sustainably by utilizing natural remedies and organic food sources. Ashitaba tea is chock-full of nutrients and enzymes that purify the human body’s blood and restores health and vitality to the entire body. There are benefits aplenty. Only a few can be mentioned here.
Those who drink the wholly caffeine free tea experience an increase in energy levels. Testing has shown that the ashitaba tea contains more potent antioxidants than the familiar green teas already on the organic wholesale and retail market. This tea is good for curtailing diabetes. It speeds up the human body’s metabolism levels by breaking down all saturated fats. It is particularly effective as an inhibitor towards increasing insulin sensitivity.
Those who are now strict converts to all things organic will be pleased to know that processing and packaging of the tea is done organically and utilizes sustainable practices which promote reductions in carbon levels. You now know that the tea was originally grown in Japan, it still is, of course, but here is another pleasant surprise. If you have fallen in love with organic gardening, already planting your own organic and pesticide free vegetables, you will love the challenges of planting the famous Ashitaba plant which, if cultivated correctly, will grow into a perennial tree, flourishingly splendiferous with its green leaves.
