Caffeine-Free + Sleep-Friendly T-L! Tea Blends

Caffeine or Sans?

Though caffeine is purported to actually yield some potential health benefits, like keeping us alert, improving memory, and enhancing brain function, it is also a serious stimulant and overdoing it can have adverse effects. If you’ve been known to reach for that cuppa something caffeinated after 5 pm and are still struggling to get to sleep at 5 am, the culprit is most likely caffeine.

Let your mind and body unwind the natural way at the end of the day, instead of amping up with an energizing stimulant that can keep you from getting that full night’s beauty sleep you need and well deserve. You don’t have to cut out caffeine completely, though. There’s always a time for tea – whatever kind your taste buds and tummy desire!

But, be smart and adapt your caffeine-intake to match – not mess up – your natural circadian rhythm. Reserve your more caffeinated teas to earlier in the day, when you can utilize the extra energy boost. Do your best to stay disciplined and do yourself a favor by switching to caffeine-free teas around 4 pm or 5 pm for the remainder of the evening.

Your mind, body, and spirit will thank you! You’ll be off to dreamland and catching up on those zzz’s in no time and hopefully wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and renewed, as a good night’s sleep should offer.

Opting for caffeine-free teas during the latter half of the day doesn’t mean you have to drink the same thing over and over again or be limited to just one type of tea.

“There’s lots to choose from and Tea-lation! is looking forward to providing you with a wide variety of many more authentic tea blends, both with and sans caffeine – for every time of the day and night!” shares Susan B. B. Schabacker, Tea-lation! founder, owner, and master tea blender.

Behind The Scenes With Our Local Hemp Farmers @ Celestial Wellness!

We are excited to team up with local hemp farmers at Celestial Wellness to bring you to special tea + hemp blends (AM + PM blends). It’s not every day you get see what’s involved with producing and harvesting hemp, so we wanted to share some Q and As, as well as photos from behind the scenes! If you have additional questions for our local hemp partners, you can get in touch with them here. Special thanks to Justin, with Celestial Hemp, for providing this organic material for us to see and know more about their local hemp, which we look forward to including in our tea blends!

Q: How are hemp blossoms harvested? Please explain the process as best you can – in a nutshell. 

A: They are harvested in several different ways. Our method is to cut off the branches and then run the branches over a fan blade. We then hang the rough trimmed branches in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. After they are sufficiently dried, we then remove all of the flower from the branches, and fine trim it. After it is fine trimmed, we then store it with humidity control packets in a temperature controlled place, and let it cure for at least a week. 

Q: You have shared that the hemp blossoms have to decarboxylated- basically put in the oven for a certain amount of time in order to activate the compounds. What is the purpose of decarboxylating hemp and what does the process entail? What properties become activated when the hemp blossoms are decarboxylated?

A: Decarboxylation is the process that turns CBDA into CBD. It essentially activates the CBDA so it does not have to be activated by the user at the time of consumption. This does not have to be done to hemp that is smoked because when it is lit, the decarboxylation occurs almost instantly. With hemp that is ingested, however, it must be done beforehand. Heating it to 210-230 degrees for 30-45 minutes typically will do the trick for decarbing. 

Q: We use two different types of hemp blossoms in our AM and PM hemp tea blends. What are the differences between cherry (in the AM blend) and berry (in the PM blend)? Why are they called names of fruit and are they flavored with cherry and berry? 

A: The types of flower, Cherry Blossom and Berry Blossom, are only named that because the geneticist that created the strains named them so. 

The Cherry Blossom is, to my knowledge, actually a strain that was created with Cherry Wine and Berry Blossom. It was created by combining the genetics of Cherry Wine and Berry Blossom.

The Berry Blossom strain was created with Cherry Kandahar S1 and Chardonnay genetics.

We did not create these strains, we just purchased the seeds from another licensed farmer.  We have had several customers mention that they had a fruity flavor, so that may be why they were named that way. It really comes down to your personal preference as to how it aligns with the other ingredients when creating the blends.

We look forward to having these two delicious and nutritious ALL organic tea + hemp blends available for y’all to order soon. So, please keep checking back on our Tea-lation store, where we currently have 4 authentic tea blends ready to go – so you can sip your cuppa happy!

Abundant Health Benefits of Teas

ANTIOXIDANT- RICH + NUTRIENT-RICH

Tea is a rich source of flavonoids, bioactive compounds that decrease oxidative stress and alleviate inflammation – that may also reduce plaque build up in the arteries. Full of antioxidants, tea is well known to help us stay healthy, young, as well as protect us from the harmful effects of pollution.

Q: So, we know tea contains lots of antioxidants, but what else nutritionally do teas have that can benefit our health? A: Teas contain minerals including: phosphorus, sodium, zinc, copper, and magnesium.

MANY HEALTH BENEFITS OF TEA

Some research studies have concluded that drinking tea can improve vascular reactivity – the level at which your blood vessels respond to physical and emotional stress. Tea may also lower levels of harmful LDL cholesterol and blood pressure.

With wide varieties of low-caffeine and caffeine-free options to choose from, you don’t have to struggle with becoming overly caffeinated. Some of the negative results of overloading on caffeine include: headaches, anxiety, insomnia, and even increased mortality. The Mayo Clinic participated in a study that involved men who drank more than 4 8 fl. oz. cups of coffee and experienced a 21% increase in all-cause mortality. However, caffeine can have some positive benefits – like boosting your energy levels and alertness, but just don’t overdo it. And, opt for a cuppa tea over a cuppa Joe – tea contains less caffeine than its coffee counterpart.

If you want to avoid heart attack and stroke, tea may have a positive impact in helping you reduce your risk. A recent study concluded that green tea drinkers experienced a nearly 20% less risk in heart attack and 35% decreased risk in stroke in those who had 1-3 cups of green tea daily.

Want to lose weight? Try drinking more tea! There is no magic bullet to weight loss, but research studies have proven that drinking tea can help you achieve your goals when paired with a healthy diet and exercise. Catechins, a type of flavonoid in teas, can help boost your metabolism and assist your body in breaking down fats more quickly and efficiently. The caffeine content in teas can actually be beneficial, helping you increase your energy use that allows you to burn more calories – and therefore shed more pounds.

OPT FOR A CUPPA TEA!

Drinking tea helps you stay hydrated and is an ideal alternative to water – which can get old and boring sometimes. Thankfully, there are loads of health benefits to drinking teas (herbal teas, included). So, the next time you want something to sip – try a cuppa tea! Steep, sip, and savor.

Please click here to check out the article I wrote on some of the health benefits of this popular beverage in Forsyth Family magazine.

Cuppa Love Teas on Fox 8 WGHP News

Please click here to watch the news segment on “Made in NC” on Fox 8 WGHP News. Enjoyed chatting with local newscaster, Brad Jones, of Fox 8 WGHP News about Cuppa Love Teas at one of our locations where we sell our teas, Moji Coffee + More. I answered questions about the process of creating tea blends, some of our goals, and what I’ve been working on for this spring!

I shared about how much I love the creative process of blending and branding. It’s intuitive and a lot like cooking. You engage your senses and they lead you with direction to go.

One of our goals is to convert “tea virgins” into avid fans and fanatics that simply fall in love with tea. One sip usually does the trick! We have been very grateful to receive very positive feedback about our teas and some glowing rave reviews.

Another goal of Cuppa Love Teas is to branch out and expand into the PT (Piedmont Triad) area, such as in Greensboro, Kernersville, and High Point. We have special GSO (Greensboro) and PT (Piedmont Triad) tea blends. Also, in our Location Line are W-S (Winston-Salem) a popular organic Genmaicha Japanese toasted rice green tea blend with ingredients the colors of the Forsyth County flag, NC (North Carolina) White Tea Blend a berrylicious blend with ingredients the colors of the North Carolina state flag, and USA (United States of America) a patriotic blend with ingredients the colors of the American flag that is naturally flavored with strawberry and bergamot.

Long term goals that may seem a bit lofty now, but will hopefully come to pass in the future: getting our teas into the White House with the President and First Lady sipping and savoring them and into Buckingham Palace with the Royal Family (including none other than the Queen, herself) holding their pinkies out, Cuppa Love Teas cuppas in their hands. Who knows? Maybe sharing a cuppa love will bring the Royal Family together again. Afternoon tea can be an important time for social matters.

Here are some direct quotes from the Fox 8 WGHP news segment with Brad Jones, called “Made in NC:”

“While Moji Coffee has 10 Cuppa Love Teas varieties available, they often change with the season. They just featured a few holiday themed blends for Christmas and soon you’ll see some new flavors, as the weather warms up,” said Brad Jones with Fox 8 WGHP News.

So, what’s on the radar for spring 2020? The blossoming of floral ingredients, as in a Jasmine bouquet and English garden with pink rose petals and buds and lavender. These beautiful and elegant tea blends celebrate the budding of spring and represent fresh growth, as we all want to experience. We also have a special tea blend called “Spring Awakening,” that has chamomile flowers in it and, in contrast to its name, is very relaxing, soothing, and calming.

In the interview with Courtney, of Moji Coffee + More, she mentions her favorite tea blend is Berrylicious Black Tea Blend. “When we’re brewing it, it smells like fresh berries all over the shop. It has a really distinct berry flavor that I’ve never really experienced in a tea,” said Courtney in the Fox 8 WGHP News interview.

“Those flavors appeal to more than just your sense of taste. The aroma is part of the experience, too,” said Brad Jones, of Fox 8 WGHP News.

“So it’s really been nice to have some local tea made in WS to feature at our shop,” said Courtney, of Moji Coffee + More.

Cuppa Love Teas is all the rage and made in NC. Tea made with a local connection and a local flavor. It’s a traditional drink, but a Winston-Salem woman is taking tea to a new level. Cuppa Love Teas are gaining a lot of fans. Featured at a number of restaurants and coffeeshops and there’s a lot of variety. So far she’s created about 70 blends. Susan Schabacker starts with different types of tea and then mixes them with herbal and floral ingredients,” said Brad Jones, of Fox 8 WGHP News.

“So, we’ve got your strongest cuppa with caffeine with the black tea, we’ve got chais, we’ve got green tea, we’ve got white tea with less caffeine than green tea, we’ve got rooibos, which is caffeine-free (South African rooibos) and herbal (of course), which is like your chamomile or lavender or the mints,” said Schabacker on “Made in NC” on Fox 8 WGHP News.

“Susan’s flavors are brewed up hot, but you can serve them hot or cold. She just wants people to break out of their routine and try something new,” said Brad Jones, of Fox 8 WGHP News.

“I really want people who are “tea virgins,” we like to call them, to experience tea for the first time and fall in love with it,” Schabacker said.

Cuppa Love Teas, a natural way to enjoy a little love in every cuppa,” said Brad Jones, of Fox 8 WGHP News.

Other Cuppa Love Teas tea blends we are currently offering include two unique blends from our Local/Location Line: WS (Winston-Salem) Green Tea Blend and PT (Piedmont Triad) Herbal Tea Blend, which is sans caffeine.

Another tea we will have ready to greet your taste buds and treat your tummy is soon to be a fall fav: Organic Chai Pumpkin Spice Black Tea Blend (our first all organic tea).

There are lots of people going and lots of showings! Pick up your tix from a/perture, head to concessions for your cuppa and enjoy the show!

Lovingly,

Cuppa Love Teas – Love in Every Cuppa!
