Come into Wystone’s and stuff your very own tea chest with teas from around the world.  These beautiful tea chests make the perfect gift for the tea lover in your life.

The history of a tea chest goes back a long way.  You surely remember the Boston Tea Party in 1773 where colonists dressed up like American Indians stormed the British ships.  There are many depictions of the tea chests being hurled over the side of the ship into the ocean.  Tea was considered a very precious and expensive commodity and transporting it from India or Asia across the oceans was a challenge.  Vessels were slow moving and the slightest amount of moisture would spoil the teal.  No one would purchase a spoiled tea.

In order to protect the tea from spoilage, tea chests were used.  They were large sealed boxes made from wood with a lead lining.  Tea was placed inside these tea chests.  With the advent of modern steamships and the opening of the Suez Canat the time taken for transportation greatly decreased.  Nowdays tea is kept in cold storage and then often shipped via courrier services as it is very light.  Larger quantities of tea are shipped in containers that are kept in cold storage, frequently the bags are vacuum packed.  There is no longer a need to use tea chests to ship tea around the world.

History of the tea chest

Come into Wystone's World Teas and sfuff your own tea chest with teas from around the world

Note: Tea chests, in their original wooden state are much more commonly used and referred to in the UK and Australia.  In the US and many other countries a tea chest may refer to a small wooden or metal container that is used to store tea or tea bags in

Greetings!

January is HOT TEA MONTH and the MONTH OF HEALTH – a time when  we make resolutions to wy pro phototreat ourselves better through weight loss activities, more exercise, eating and drinking better and just taking more time for ourselves. In this issue, discover the many health studies related to tea and the reasons you should include

a cup a day as part of your daily ritual.

It was quite a 2011 and we are again blessed to have you as our friends and clients. I marveled over the communing over tea with family and loved ones during the holidays. That’s exactly what Wystone’s was built for…communing.  It reminds me of Japanese Tea Houses I visited years ago.

As we entered the first of many Tea Houses, we had to bend over to get in the door. I asked why the doors were so low. The proprietor explained that in feudal times the tea house was a central part of Japanese life. Patrons left their swords and baggage outside, so all who entered were equals and there for the same purpose – to relax and commune over a cup. I think at Wystone’s we have achieved something similar many years later.  Thank you for your loyalty and let’s have a fantastic 2012!

 

Rooibos Tea Helps Reduce Stress

Scientists at Stellenbosch University are shedding new light on the long-held belief that a cup of Rooibos helps us to relax and cope better with the stresses of daily life.  A research team at the University’s biochemistry department, led by Profession Amanda Swart has produced scientific evidence that Rooibos tea lowers the production of cortisol in human’s adrenal glands. Read more…

 

Green Tea Inhibits Hepatitis C Virus

Individuals receiving a liver transplant who are vulnerable to infection by Hepatitis C virus may find green tea inhibits HVC re-infection.  End stage liver disease caused by the Hepatitis C virus is the most common reason for a liver transplant, accounting for about 30% of liver transplant surgeries,according to a review of the research on the website Hepatitis Central.  Read more…

Book of the MonthRevealing your Extraordinary Essence

Revealing Your Extraordinary Essence

by Cynthia James

 

We highlighted this book last month and so many of you commented on it I thought what better way to kick off 2012 than with her book again. Cynthia and I blended a very special tea to accompany her Extraordinary Essence Book at its debuted in early January at Mile Hi Church. There were over 250 ladies in attendance and while we came with gallons of tea already made, we quickly needed to make more.

 

Look for the blend at Wystone’s and on Cynthia’s website soon.

The tea was a huge hit!

us to let you know how much we appreciate your business.  I always love this time of year because I get to see you come in with your family and friends, and just have a good time.  Someone remarked to me the other day that as many times as they have been in to Wystone’s, they very rarely see anyone on their cell phones.  I think something remarkable happens when you come to our place…you actually connect with your colleagues, family and loved ones.  You actually look them in their eyes and have that good old fashioned thing we use to do…communicate face to face.  Wystone’s was built as a communal Tea House and Gathering Place.  We have accomplished that, and more.  So when you want to get away from all the noise of the world and need a respite…come hang out with us for Great Tea, Great Food and Great Company
