Tea, Hydration, And Health
To help maintain hydration and health nutrition, experts from the Institute of Medicine has determined that an adequate intake for women is approximately 9 cups of fluids every day, and for men is approximately 13 cups of fluids every day. Since tea without added sugar or milk is 99.5 percent water, it can count towards your fluid intake for the day - plus it tastes great! Unsweetened tea delivers the purifying effect of water, which helps remove toxins from the body.
Myth: It’s a common perception that tea, or other drinks containing caffeine, have a diuretic effect, which means causes higher frequency of urination and will lower your body’s hydration level.
Fact: However, research shows that the levels of caffeine in regularly consumed amounts of tea do not lead to dehydration, and in fact the fluid in tea contributes to hydration.
An aromatic, uplifting beverage savored for centuries around the world from India and Ireland to the USA, tea was once an expensive drink, enjoyed exclusively by the wealthy. And with early packaging and transportation issues, it was also variable in quality and taste.
In 1880, 40-year-old, Glasgow-born entrepreneur and innovator Sir Thomas Lipton envisioned an opportunity to make tea universally accessible with guaranteed quality at acceptable prices. He began by purchasing tea estates in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and arranged packaging and shipping at low costs to sell his teas directly from the tea garden to the tea pot. In 1893, he established the Thomas J Lipton Co., a tea packing company with its headquarters and factory in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Lipton teas were an immediate success in the United States and the United Kingdom. In recognition of his exceptional contribution, Thomas Lipton was knighted by Queen Victoria in 1898, and became Sir Thomas Lipton at the age of forty-eight.
Lipton is now a world leading tea brand, sold in more than 150 countries.
