CelebriTEAS Love Their Cuppa
The hottest trend sweeping Hollywood-listers is the switch to tea. Apart from the numerous health and beauty benefits, the wonderful choice of boutique tea varieties has made the humble cuppa the must-serve at swish homes in the Hills overlooking Los Angeles. It’s now the height of chic to sit in a chilled-out lounge sipping on an aromatic tea while discussing your busy schedules with friends.
Due to this growth of tea popularity many new brands have emerged as people everywhere, especially with the help of social media, are beginning to learn more and more about tea. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow are rarely seen without a steaming mug of tea in hand. In fact organic green tea was an integral part of her Clean Detox program which has the motto: Remove, Restore, Rejuvenate
Celebrity diets usually involve green tea because it has high anti-oxidant effect and can offer a great detox effect in the body. It also helps eliminate free radicals that are harmful and may cause faster aging. Oprah for example has given a lot of efforts in transforming her celebrity diets with green tea. Now, Oprah has attained a big change in her physical image. She reported losing 2 pounds in just 2 weeks with regular green tea diet.
Even the rock stars are into their cuppa. Former bad boy rockers Led Zeppelin, on a recent tour, ordered a constant supply of herbal tea. Robert Plant, the lead vocalist of the band is famous for having a mug of hot tea with honey as his constant companion while on tour.
New-mother Christina Aguilera is also a green tea addict and included it in her celebrity diets. After her pregnancy, Christina gained a lot of baby fat and used green tea as part of her weight loss regimen to regain her youthful figure.
The beautiful Heidi Klum was recently spotted on a three hour tea date in London. Maggie Grace, Shannon Rutherford on the hit series Lost, was caught sharing a pot of tea with Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS Shoes, while also on a recent trip to London.
The health and beauty link with tea is encapsulated in Lipton choice of Aussie Supermodel Miranda Kerr to represent their brand. She epitomises the fresh and healthy delights of tea. Miranda would not put her name to something she does not support, and those who know her, recognise she takes great pride in her organic and healthy lifestyle.
The beneficial effects of herbal teas vary from variety to variety. Chamomile tea, for example, is known for its soothing and calming effects, but it has also been found to have significant anti-platelet-clumping activity, which reduces the occurrence of blood clots. Scientists found that Peppermint tea contains antimicrobial and antiviral properties, which helps digestion and calms upset stomachs and diarrhea. Lovers of Hibiscus tea can feel the beneficial effects of lower blood pressure especially significant for pre-hypertensive and mildly hypertensive adults.
Another popular trend amongst health conscious personalities is holding regular tea-parties. These celebrities and more are getting hooked onto the great taste and aroma of a perfectly brewed cup of tea. It seems to act as the new accessory. Who needs the newest Mulberry bag, when you can be carrying around a boutique cup of tea?
