Tea Healthier Than Water & More

Here are a few more miscellaneous items.

First up, the BBC informs us that "Drinking three or more cups of tea a day is as good for you as drinking plenty of water and may even have extra health benefits, say researchers." Read all about it here.

Tea cultivation has been going on in Hawaii on a small scale for a while now. We last wrote about it here. Now, as Honolulu's Star Bulletin reports, it's about to get a boost, with a new tea plantation due to appear on the scene.

Some well-known sugar water purveyors have been taking heat in India due to the supposedly high levels of pesticides found in their products. Pepsi has apparently chosen to spin this one by suggesting that tea is even more tainted than soda pop. The tea industry, as you might have guessed, is not happy about this. More here.

From the Scotsman comes one that has nothing to do with tea, but I couldn't resist passing it along. It's about a maple syrup diet "championed by the singer BeyoncĂ© Knowles." The particular brand of maple syrup plugged in the article costs a mere "£39.99 a litre". I'm not sure what that means in dollars, but it sounds rather pricey. All of which goes to show, as I've said before, that you'll never go broke promoting harebrained weight loss schemes.
