Why is a good cuppa so refreshing?
« on: 12/08/2007 23:56:49 »
What is it about a cup of tea that bucks you up so well? No matter how hot the day, a good cuppa is so refreshing and satisfying.

As most of you may know, I'm a coffee addict (only 30-40 cups per day now since I've cut down); but coffee doesn't refresh me the way tea does.

Really... Do you ever sleep.. LOL.. I shouldn't say anything.. Too much caffeine gives me hives. If I am tired I can drink a cup of coffee or two and still go to sleep on a sleepy night! I only have one cappacino in the morning... usually sometimes I skip it and have juice just depends!

I suspect a cup of tea bucks you up so well because your senses must celebrate because of the diversion  !!

Water, in general, cleans blood; hot water cleans liver. I don't know if there is also a similar effect due to the substances dissolved in the tea.

Surely by the time the water reaches the liver it's been cooled to body temperature !!..No ?..yes ?

But here we are used to inject hot water directly inside the liver  ;)
Apart from jokes, I think if you don't drink just small amounts of water, its temperature don't go down to body's temperature so fast, and should still be a bit hotter when it reach the liver.

Does that help to flush out a liver that may have say to much medication or other toxin???

IDK, but I drink it when it is just short of scalding, and that whole feeling just feels good! But I get bucked up by the first coffee of the day too, for obvious reasons. My beverage pattern during the day is tea first (06:00 - 06:30), coffee (08:00 - 11:30), tea again (11:30 - 19:00), coffee (20:00 - 21:00), then tea (21:00 +) depending on occasion. There are times of the day when tea just doesn't seem right, and also when coffee doesn't. I just could not wake up to a cup of coffee! It has to be tea!
