Tea - A beverage that helps you live longer

Tea is an aromatic drink that is popular the world over. It has many excellent properties that are beneficial for our health, so much so that they help us live longer. It contains anti-oxidants that help reduce the harmful effects on the body, and help us look and feel younger. It is also known to help in weight-loss which has a very positive cascading effect on the entire body system. 

Compared to coffee, tea contains less caffeine, and thereby does not stress the nervous systems. Medical research proves that consuming tea regularly reduces the risk of stroke and other heart diseases. 

Going beyond the vintage, classic teas, the market today is flooded with Ayurvedic Teas that blend various useful ingredients (right from the very useful Ginger) to normal tea to make it even more beneficial to the consumer. 


When tomato prices are dear

Tomatoes are the world's most popular fruit (yes, not vegetable). When tomatoes are in demand, the rates shoot up quite rapidly. A home garden with tomato plants is the ideal solution. But if you are not able to grow them, the next easier alternative is to buy tomato puree. Tomato puree is made by extracting tomato pulp, and usually contains preservatives to keep it fresh. It's available anytime, anywhere, so it's a good idea to stock some puree for use.
