How do hot temperatures and tea fit together?
Tea in the warm season? That does not fit together for many people. The summer lures with sun, vacation and good mood. We spend a lot of time outdoors, enjoying the great weather and sweating. Nobody thinks about warm drinks first. The annoying evil of sweating, however, is the natural and necessary regulation of our body. He tries to stabilize the body temperature. The moisture on the skin surface evaporates and cools the body.
Cold drinks in the summer only warm the body up
Often this natural way of cooling is not enough for us. We thirst for an additional cold source. We put all our drinks into the fridge and enjoy icecold Cola, water and juices. That is helpful for the moment, but causes the opposite in the long term. With the icecold drinks we send the signal that our body is too cold. The consequence: Our body starts heating to compensate this deficit of temperature. Therefore we suffer still more from the heat.
Warm tea relieves the heat in the summer
So the pleasure of tea is very helpful in summer either. The tea prevents that our body thinks it is too cold. If the tea is only lukewarm, It is enough for this impact. So it must not be drunken hot like in winter. For those who still don´t want to miss the usual cold beverage in the summer there is the possibility to make an ice tea out of our valuable loose tea. It is a terrific alternative to conventional cold beverages and a wonderful opportunity to grant yourself and your guests something special.
