General disclaimer: We sometimes discuss various scientific studies about possible health consequences of drinking tea. We mention these studies because they are interesting and will give the public some understanding of the type of nutrition and medical research currently being done as it relates to tea. However, we want you to keep in mind that tea research is in its infancy (and nutrition research isn’t much further ahead), and the conclusions of any one study cannot be taken to be absolute fact. It takes years of painstaking research with consistent results to be able to say any given result is certain. It is not our intention to suggest that tea has any absolutely certain health benefits, nor that you should drink tea to treat any medical conditions. The information in this blog is in no way intended to replace a visit to your doctor or other health care professional. We want you to drink tea because it is delicious and you love it!
Greetings and welcome to The Tea Table Blog! I’m Lori Way, MS, RD, the main author of this blog and President of The Tea Table, LLC, an online store for premium teas and tea accessories. I am also a registered dietitian and like to discuss a variety of nutrition and tea related topics. You’ll also see posts by our General Manager, John Rice. On our blog you’ll find advice and how-to information related to making tea, general store announcements, and links to other interesting tea articles and videos. I’m sure many new uses will present themselves as we move along and explore the possibilities. Feel free to comment and ask questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
