The Healthy Champagne!

Alright everyone it's time to par-Tea! Suns out, long weekends here, and summer is just around the corner.
On the menu for drinks, we've got the delicious "Strawberry Champagne".
So grab all your friends and family, mother's, uncles, grand parents and children because tonight..... drinks are on us!
Now we know what you're probably thinking.. Champagne for children?
Ok, Ok...our mistake....we may have (intentionally) left out a key detail that you should know. This strawberry champagne is actually a tea ;)
And a very refreshing, and fruity tea might we add
This is a beautiful oolong tea is from China.
Aside from the well-known metabolism boosting effects, some benefits of Oolong include improving mental alertness and preventing tooth decay ( Smile wide!).
In this tea we also added freeze dried strawberries, which contain wonderful antioxidant properties, and are packed with vitamins and minerals making strawberries one of the healthiest fruits in town.
Another popular fruit in this tea is papaya, which is originally from Mexico (Arreeebaaa!!) (We couldn't resist!).
Papayas can help fight disease,  reduce inflammation and also have antioxidant properties. So....what more can you ask for?
I hear you whispering....alcohol? LOL, sorry dear reader! But the good news is you can definitely drink this champagne and drive!
It's safe to say that this is a drink that everyone can really enjoy on a nice warm day out at a picnic or family gathering.
Happy Sipping!
So grab your glasses and sippie cups and let's all cheer to summer and hot weather being on the way!!
HIP HIP HOOORAYYY!

Keep Blooming! Flowers in your Cup!

April Showers bring.... Tea flowers!!

Ok ok.... we know it actually brings May flowers.... but we thought it was cute ;)

So what do spring and tea have in common......If you guessed flowers than you are a superstar!

A lot of the most popular tea blends out there have gorgeous floral elements to them.

Cornflower petals, safflower petals and even rose petals! Theres nothing more beautiful than to notice a beautiful rose petal floating in your teaware.

Flowers have been steeped for thousands of years and can bring tons of medicinal health benefits when consumed on daily basis, so when you see those extra ingredients in your tea- know that your body is saying, thanks!

Here are a few known benefits of different steeped flowers

DID YOU KNOW...

Rose Tea helps relieve menstrual cramping and can boost your immune system!

Cornflowers in tea can help relieve anxiety and can soothe an irritable stomach.

Safflowers are known to reduce cholesterol build up in the arteries!

Lavender is a natural relaxer for bedtime and can relieve indigestion.

WOW! I learned so much just writing this blog.

No wonder tea blenders are always throwing these petals into our favourite blends of tea. Not only do they look pretty...they're working hard to make our bodies a little healthier with each sip!

Now when it comes to beauty, there is one tea in particular that comes to our minds. Lets put a little spotlight on our beautiful white tea  "Vanilla Coco Loco" which contains coconut, blue mallow flowers, rose buds and notes of vanilla it's packed with petals and 
white tea , which is know to be the purest form of tea. With benefits of improving oral health, purifying your blood, being an antioxidant & having anti-aging properties, there's just no reason to not give this tea a try!

Adding petals and white tea to your everyday routine might make you just shine a little brighter.
Stay blooming!

Move Oolong! (Get it ;) )

 

"Move Oolong..... nothing to Tea here!!"

Just kidding, come on can't we all just get Oolong? Lol
Ok, ok...... Enough with the corny puns. Lets really get settled and talk tea! 
If you haven't already guessed it by the puns, we thought this beautiful Taiwanese Tea named Oolong would be nice for a little sip & chat.
Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea. It's originally grown in Fujian but is now mostly produced in Taiwan.
Now the taste of Oolong varies depending on the type that you get. There is a regular oolong and then there is a milk oolong that has a thicker body to it and has a creamy yet buttery note to it. Our most popular tea, "Wow" happens to be one of the most magical oolongs you can find (in our humble opinion)
Now I know....  The question we all want answered  is
"What are the benefits of Oolong Tea?"
Well in short....many! But more specifically, this tea in particular is studied to boost your metabolism.  It's been famously dubbed " The Fat Buster"
It's also an antioxidant, it's good for your hair and skin along with preventing tooth decay. Whew! 
Fun Fact: Oolong is actually right in the middle of green tea and black tea. It is slightly more oxidized than a green tea and slightly less oxidize than black. The leaf is hand  rolled into a ball shape. Once it starts to steap in hot water the leaf fully opens up! #beautiful!
So, with all that info let's not stray to all the other teas let's try and get Oolong with it. #SuperCornyPun
Happy Sipping

March is all about....Going Green!

 

Leprechaun suits....... 4 leaf clovers.......... Thoughts of Spring.......... Matcha!

What do all these things have in common? ...
They're all GREEN!!
In this month of March people start thinking green for many reasons... St. Patrick's Day being one of the biggest. At T By Daniel we think that's awesome!
It's just the perfect reason toy start adding Green Tea to your everyday routine. 
Think about this:
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, it boosts your metabolism, detoxify's your body, helps improve brain function and gives you the "Energizer Bunny Boost" to get you through your day.
Put it this way: Green tea will definitely keep you going & going & going.
A fun fact about matcha green tea for those who don't know what that magical green powder in the picture is.
Matcha is simply green tea that is stone grounded into a powder form. One cup of this powerhouse beverage has as many antioxidants as ten cups of brewed green tea.
#Wow!
Matcha has a very pure, herbaceous flavour to it. Lets put it this way. If the colour green had a taste, it would definitely taste like Matcha.
Now if you're not to fond of just drinking matcha on its own, an easy way to add it to your diet is by throwing into your smoothie or shake recipies in the morning. Add some almond milk with a touch of Cinnamon and maybe a drop or 2 or vanilla extract and make it your own creation! 
Remember tea is an adventure, tap into your crea-TEA-vity and explore with your tea!
Let's go Green everyone! 
Happy Sipping!

5 Reasons To Include Tea in your Daily Routine

 

 

Well tea lovers we've made it to Thursday Feb.9th. 2017! I mean we are already almost half way through the second month of the year, this is crazy!

Many of us have new goals and or resolutions for the year and we are slowly accomplishing them day by day. With that said it never hurt to also start the year off with some Tea!

Here are our top 5 reasons as to why we should all include tea into our daily routine for the year...

1. Hydration: our body is made up of about 70% of water and tea is about 99% water. So if we add atleast 2 cups of tea per day, then we know that ×+y = the hypotenuse of 5 which means tea is a good aid in hydration! Right...?

2. Antioxidant / Detox: Most, if not all teas can be catagorized under both of these headings. For example we like to say that White tea is the Mercedes Benz of teas, why? Because who wouldn't like to drive in a clean white Mercedes while drinking tea?..Just Kidding! White Tea is know to be the purest form of tea simply because it's the least oxidized and it purifies your blood. How's that for a cleanse / detox.
3. Benefits: Have you ever applied for a job and they hire you and tell you that you have to wait 3 months before you get their "benefits"? Well with Tea, let's just say You are in control of when you want those benefits. For example, if you are low in iron, have a Rooibos tea which comes from the south African Red Bush, or you want to kick start your matabalisim then enjoy a cup of Oolong tea, and if you just want to relax there is nothing better than a beautiful herbal blended tea in your cup.
4. Make it your own: Once people here the word "tea" they immediately think of tea bags in the boxes at the grocery store or classify it as "old fashion". We're here to tell you that tea can be fun and tea can have style. Seriously, on a hot summer day add a few ice cubes and your choice of sweetener. On days like this where its pretty cold,add some almond milk with a touch of agave, some cinnamon and a bit of vanilla and WAH-LAH! You got yourself a Lat-Tea! We here at T By Daniel believe that you dont have to just have tea at home in pj's you can dress fancy too and "Drink Tea In Style."
5. It's Kid friendly: Children look up to us and they follow what we do. If we continue to only have the sweet pops and overly sweet juices that all our children will want. However if we switch it up and introduce them early to have let's say a strawberry tea with some cane sugar or agave, they will accept this because this is all they will know. It's a much healthier alternative for both you and them. 
Again, tea doesn't have to be "boring" or "dull". Dress it up a little and your body will thank you in the long run. Keep it classy and drink tea in style!

Chocolate Lovers Unite!!

With Christmas right around the corner...we all have a lot of thoughts on our mind.
Did we accomplish our new years resolutions? What colours will we decorate the home with...and of course, what are we going to get our loved ones as a token of our love and appreciation for them as we celebrate the close of another year.
Well....if there's one gift we are never too old for....its chocolates, and lots of them!
And we have a tea that  is sure to satisfy the Chocolate Lover.....
Yes yes..It's delicious Chocolate Marteani!
The sweet taste of a toasty, chocolatey sensation in this cool weather is exactly what is needed.
Not only is it deliciously warming, Chocolate Marteani is a black tea, and black teas are known as stress relievers!
So imagine that.. a natural dark chocolate flavour with calendula petals, all mixed into a hot cup, with a bit of sweetener and milk, and you're ready to take on the day- stress free!  Especially delicious on those early mornings or late working afternoons, it's totally the perfect pick-me-up for those smooth dark chocolate lovers but without all the calories! A win-win situation wouldn't you agree?
Chocolate Marteani has been a favourite choice of mine ever since I began to really pay attention to the beauty of it and started drinking it when I had a craving for its rich chocolate taste! 
     Interestingly enough, I grew to love the lattea version of this lovely tea by trying it once, as a sample of the day at the store!
Every day we prepare different samples that give our customers, and sometimes event the staff, a small taste of our tea world. It's a smooth lattea created by mixing our chocolate marteani with a creamy vanilla bean. We call it Mr. Lova lova! (You can proudly say  it's because chocolate makes you fall in love with every bite over and over again). Sometimes, you're in the mood for both chocolate and vanilla, so we say, why can't YOU have both?
You'd be surprised how some would even say it doesn't taste like tea, because it's just.. so… delicious! It's also a healthier alternative and energizer that many prefer to start their day with.  So, if you haven't come down to the shop try Mr. Lova Lova, or Chocolate Marteani on its own, why not put your faith in the desire for your cravings and treat yourself! Christmas shopping at T By Daniel is a great way to remember those cozy winter nights before the big day when Santa would make his big appearance. There's just no denying that little kid we still all have inside of us.
Happy Sipping!
