Tea is just better than coffee don’t you think?
Well I don’t particularly hate coffee but I do prefer drinking tea. And when it comes to tea, do you know that you should go for organic? Why you say.
Here’s a fact, industrial tea contains pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals to treat plants. These chemicals aren’t washed away beforehand, so the only time you try to lessen the amount of chemicals in your tea leaves is when you’re brewing them! Which means you’re ingesting those chemicals … (how come I haven’t known this all my life?). Even though there is just low amount of those crap in your tea, when you just love drinking tea several times a day, “low” becomes “high” and chemicals do have negative impacts on your health (obviously ?). Hence, I recommend going organic for your tea time. They are guaranteed by their manufacturers, plus you contribute on our ecosystem and you’re getting the best taste out there ?
