Traditional Chai made with heavy black tea thick with spices has been a longstanding favorite of mine. Lately though, I have been trying to drink more Green Tea, so I have been rocking this version. Its a nice twist.
16 ounces of water 1 TBL Green Tea 4 Cloves 2 Cinnamon Sticks 5 Black Peppercorns 4 Cardomom Pods, split 2 inches of Ginger
Add spices and water to a pot. Bring to a steady boil and allow the liquid to reduce by 4 ounces. Remove from heat and add tea. Allow it to steep for several minutes (no more than 5 because the tea may become bitter). Strain and serve with a touch of honey.
Green tea is good for digestion and great for the metabolism.
A new study by Harvard researchers and colleagues shows that eating fewer calories leads to weight loss, regardless of where those calories come from.
Many popular diets emphasize either carbohydrate, protein, or fat as the best way to lose weight. Yet there have been few studies lasting more than a year that evaluate the effect on weight loss of diets with different compositions of those nutrients.
In a randomized clinical trial led by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and Pennington Biomedical Research Center of the Louisiana State University System, a comparison of overweight participants assigned to four different diets over a two-year period showed that reducing calories achieved weight loss regardless of which of the three nutrients was emphasized.

To the more than 10,000 law enforcement agencies who use them, Taser-style stun guns probably seem like a godsend — a quick jolt of electricity and even the brawniest and most berserk criminal can be brought to the ground. No guns, no deaths and no permanent damage.
Or so Taser International, the weapon’s manufacturer, would have you believe.
However, a CrunchGear investigation paints a different picture. Not only have at least 167 people died after being Tasered, according to The Arizona Republic (although the number of these deaths that can be directly attributed to the weapons is disputed), but there appears to be an aggressive effort by the company to silence critics and to control data and, on occasion, manipulate statistics with the intent of preserving an illusion of safety surrounding its products.

No. You don’t have to take Driver Ed or Driver Training to get your permit, but you will not be able to get your Driver License until you are 18 years old. You must pass the written test at the DMV and you must practice driving at least 50 hours including 10 at night. Your insurance company may offer a discount if you voluntarily complete Driver Ed and Driver Training. Insurance companies know that professional driving instruction combined with 50 hours of supervised practice reduces the crash, injury and death rate of newly licensed drivers and other roadway users.
Many types of herbal detox tea ingredients can be purchased today by spreading a variety of filtered teas (traditional, balls, pyramids), loose herbs for dozens of other miscellaneous mixtures to choose from leaves.
Below you will see a fact that you do not realize to help you choose the perfect combination of herbal detox tea.
Tea bag or loose leaf: Generally, loose leaf tea is better for tea than tea bag type. This is due to the larger leaf size and higher quality herbs than leaf tea. Furthermore, since loose leaf tea can move more space than a tea bag, it will produce a taste of better tea.
Organic Tea: Since the main purpose with drinking herbal detox tea is to reduce toxins and impurities from our system, it is advisable to choose a bio mix to avoid adding other toxins (pesticides etc.) for system cleaning.
