One of the most consumed beverages in the twenty-first century, tea can be a beneficial addition to a person's diet when attempting to stay healthy, young and long-lived. Review recent studies on the health advantages of drinking tea made from the tea plant (not herbal teas), as well as myths and beliefs about tea. Discuss examples of many different types of tea and the latest research on tea, human health and traditions in cultures around the world that use tea medicinally. Enjoy a variety of teas while talking about how tea travels from plant to cup. Registration closes at noon on 1/22. Tuition includes materials.
