Matcha tea: how to benefit from the health boost without drinking it

Matcha tea: how to benefit from the health boost without drinking it

Posted by Helen Taggart on

Did you know you can incorporate matcha into your daily diet without drinking a single cup of tea? This is especially useful for people who want to reap the benefits but are not keen on the taste, which is quite strong and not everyone’s cup of tea! Matcha is a Japanese green tea that has become very popular in the last few years – mainly due to its health benefits and versatility. So let’s have a little look at those health benefits before we get creative. Health benefits of matcha tea Matcha has a unique rich, grassy taste and a...

Presenting....our loose leaf tea flasks

Posted by Helen Taggart on

We've been selling loose leaf tea flasks at mdtea for a little while now and, after a slow start, they have started to become rather popular, especially as a gift for a friend combined with their favourite blend.  When you’re on the go and you want a sip of tea then this is the way to get it.

So it seems we really take our tea for granted...

Vote "The Metrodeco Song" (and not X Factor) for Christmas Number One!

Posted by Helen Taggart on

I don't know about you - but we'll be so, so bored if the Christmas Number One this year is another X Factor song. So very bored, in fact, that all the tea in China would be unlikely to revive us. So we've put in an early bid of our own. This is "The Metrodeco Song" - and it's about the comings and goings of our HQ, a small tea shop in Brighton on the south coast of England. If you prefer it to this year's line up of manufactured pop stars, please 'vote' by giving us a 'like' or...

Hibiscus tea - the fashionable tea with health benefits

Posted by Michael Taggart on

By Michael Taggart Many people now know some of the health benefits of drinking tea – especially green and white tea –  but the new kid on the block is hibiscus tea. So is this fashionable tea just as healthy? A quick caveat: hibiscus tea is not really new and – strictly speaking – it’s not really a tea as it is not from the tea plant Camelia sinensis; it’s an infusion. But it is certainly growing in popularity, so let's take a look at what it is. Hibiscus tea: botany The hibiscus used in tea comes from the green part...
