A couple of days after our last teas tasting, we’re sitting on a deck overlooking the Arizona desert and looking up at a beautiful red-carpeted hill.
We’re wearing our new “vahdah” shirts.
Our friend Arizonan, a former model who lives in the desert town of Cancun, tells us she’s not drinking tea at all.
I’m wearing a teabag.
I don’t like it.
Arizonian is one of thousands of people who, since 2009, have been forced to buy tea for their families.
The practice has become so widespread that the state of Arizona is considering a bill that would ban the sale of teabags at all grocery stores.
A recent study by the Arizona Department of Health showed that 1.3 million Arizonians are currently trying to find a way to keep their tea consumption within a certain level.
The Arizona Republic reports that the bill, sponsored by Rep. Matt Rinaldi, R-Phoenix, is currently awaiting a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee.
“Tea is a lot of different things to a lot to a few people,” Rinaldio said.
“There are a lot more variables than just your favorite tea brand and your favorite teabagging method.
Tea can also be very nutritious.
We don’t think you can get a good quality tea if you don’t drink it.”
“I can’t imagine how many people have been in a tea shop or some sort of bar, and had tea that tasted like the tea they were drinking,” Arizonana says.
“The tea shop owner could have gotten that cup of tea with a spoon.
They could have picked out the tea that came out better than the tea you just bought.”
The Arizona Tea Association, an umbrella group for tea shops, says that while there are some things that can be done to improve the quality of tea, the best way to reduce tea consumption is to purchase a different type of tea.
“We know from a lot the research that shows tea is not the healthiest beverage,” said the association’s executive director, Sarah Hickey.
“That’s why we’re all trying to make tea as healthy as possible.”
Tea is actually a fermented beverage made from the leaves of the plant Caesium erythroleum lycopersicum, which is used in making tea and other beverages.
There are several types of tea: black, white, black tea, green, and black teas.
According to the American Tea Association’s website, the black tea is “slightly more bitter and leaves a slightly darker color,” while the white and green teas “are both lighter and less bitter.”
“Black tea contains more antioxidants than white and gray teas,” the organization states, “while the green tea has more vitamin E than white tea.”
The association also suggests that people try to avoid beverages that contain “green tea” because of the high levels of chemicals in them.
Tea leaves have a high concentration of the antioxidant phenols phenanthraquinone and quercetin, which can be toxic.
“For every 10 grams of phenols you consume, you’re getting 10 micrograms of flavonoids, which are antioxidants,” said Hickey, adding that the association also recommends avoiding “red tea,” which has high levels in the leaf.
“Red tea contains too much phenols, which means the tea is going to be more bitter than green tea, which has more antioxidants,” she said.
While some people may find that they prefer green teabays, it can be difficult to find the tea at a shop that offers the type of teas that they like.
“You can’t find any teabaggies on Amazon, which makes it even harder,” Ariana says, “because there’s no reason to go to Amazon.”
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other options.
The association has a list of brands that it believes are “safe” for tea consumption, and it recommends those brands as the best sources of teavine.
The associations own Teavine brand has the highest antioxidant content, according to its website.
Tea brands include: Black Tea, Green Tea, and Blue Tea.
Green tea also has a slightly higher concentration of phenol, and the association recommends avoiding it.
“Because it has the same levels of phenolic acids as white tea, it’s a good choice for those people who are trying to increase their antioxidants,” Hickey said.
The Association also has an extensive list of teatree and teapot brands, and recommends the ones that are made from “sourced green tea.”
Hickey recommends trying out different teas and finding the ones you like.
She recommends the following teas: Green Green Tea, Blue Blue Tea, Black Black Tea, Green, Red Red Tea, Orange Orange Tea, Red Tea.
