WHY DRINK TEA: For lifelong vitality, make tea (and water) your beverages of choice. Tea will help decrease your stress by putting you in the mood for contemplation and reflection. Tea's anti-oxidants decrease heart disease and cancer risk and even boost your immunity. Drink tea throughout the day to keep the level of anti-oxidants even and high in your bloodstream. Our fine teas come to you from China, the original home of tea, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Japan.
Black Tea wonders include:
– Strong heart health – it can actually aid in the prevention of heart attacks;
– Increases bone density; and
– Kills bacteria in the mouth that can prevent cavities and fight bad breath.
Red Tea, Rooibos from South Africa, is high in anti-oxidants, low in tannins so it doesn’t turn bitter, is citrusy and aromatic and never contains caffeine.
Green Tea provides anti-oxidant health benefits, because it is made from un-oxidized leaves. Thus, it is one of your most flavorful and inexpensive sources of cancer fighting anti-oxidants. Along with foods such as berries, and spices such as turmeric, green teas support a "nutritional-based" way of managing the free radicals created by toxins in our food and environment. Antiseptic and anti-viral, it kills oral bacteria that can lead to colds and flus, fights degenerative disease, and supports immune function. Green tea tastes great, ranging from our organic green with Citrus and Ginkgo to our Bangkok Green (with coconut, lemon grass and ginger.) Green tea does contain caffeine, so we do offer it "decaf", as well.
White Teais a Chinese specialty, pale and delicately fragrant. High in cancer fighting anti-oxidants, anti-aging, cooling and detoxifying, it has the lowest content of caffeine found in tea. It is also high in L-theanine, the amino acid, which promotes longevity and concentration.
Herbal Infusions Passiflora carries a wide range of organic bulk herbs (that can be prepared into infusions singly) such as chamomile, lemon grass or ginger. We also have our own Passiflora herbal blends such as "Sanctuary," our calming blend containing chamomile, oatstraw, and linden in addition to other ingredients.
We also carry other herbal blends from Connecticut tea suppliers. All our herbals are top quality, resonating with the wonderful energy of these plants.
All foods sold in our tea room are made with mostly organic ingredients and are as whole a food as possible, with an eye to up-to-date nutrition research and strong health practices used throughout the world.
WHY ORGANIC? Ounce for ounce, organic food is higher in nutrients for your body. Your body does not like chemicals, pesticides and dyes. We want to create more volume for the producers of organic products, so more Americans can eat organic at a reasonable price.
We try to eat organic and whole 99.9% of the time ---- so occasionally we can have a “SOUL” treat; a great tasting cookier, or carrot cake - ENJOY!. Take a breath from your errands, chores and responsibilities, sit down with the significant others in your life and DO NOTHING.
