Podcast Ep 26: A Steep Look At Tea Leaves with Tracy Bell

Many of us enjoy a lovely, calming cup of tea in the morning, but what would you say about chewing on tea leaves in your breakfast smoothie?

On today’s episode of the Natural Health Influencer Podcast, we speak with Tracy Bell, an East Coast Canadian who has traveled around the world visiting tea estates, interviewing farmers and tea sommeliers to better understand how one can obtain the optimal health benefits that tea has to offer.

It was on this journey that she discovered a need for washed, freshly picked tea leaves that would provide maximum health benefits and as a result, Millennia tea was born. Tuning in you’ll hear the incredible, science-backed facts on the medicinal power of green tea.

Tracy gives an introduction to the destructive effect of free radicals and how the antioxidants in green tea are particularly adept at neutralizing them. Later we discuss the ORAC value, which measures the antioxidant power of a food source, and finds that green tea has an exceptionally high score. We also talk about the positive effect that the combination of L-theanine and caffeine has on your brain function and why it’s been difficult for companies to supply tea that preserves all these health benefits the way that Millenia TEA is able to. Join us today for a delightful conversation steeped in facts about the power of tea leaves!
