    as well..

  2. Suzanne Miller commented:

    How about tea leaves in bulk – I don’t use tea bags anymore. I brew the loose leaves for better flavor and benefits.

    • Loose leaf tea is fine as well as tea bags. The most important thing to be aware of is the quality of the tea, where it is sourced from, etc. Not all loose leaf tea is high quality.

    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    • I started buiyng Chinese Oolong Tea after reading that it increases the metabolism by 10% which is much higher than the green tea I had been drinking. I’ve read green tea only increases the metab by 4%. I’d have to drink almost 5 cups of green tea to get the benefits of drinking only 2 cups of Oolong. Green tea has been my good buddy since 1998 when my sister introduced me to it, but I have to say goodbye. Oolong tastes better than green tea as well

  5. I need to to thank you for this wonderful read!! I definitely enjoyed every bit
    of it. I have got you book-marked to check out new stuff you post…
