A world of tea drinkers
A world of tea drinkers The humble little tea leaf has made quite an impact worldwide. In fact, it’s become the second most drunk beverage in the world after, not surprisingly, water. So, forget those fizzy, sugary soft drinks, those beers and wines that’ll leave you with a sore head and that other hot, black liquid (which can make you feel all jittery), it’s a tea that’s the planet’s real hero. Tea unites the world, it’s drunk to bring people together, to calm us down, to pep us up, to soothe a crisis and to celebrate a reunion. It’s drunk out of mugs, cups, glasses and saucers; it’s drunk hot or iced, with spices, with sugar, with honey, with fruit, with milk (of all sorts: yak, we hear, is special), without milk, with, well, whatever really takes your fancy. Learning to make tea is like a rite of passage and, of course, only you can make yourself the perfect cup. There are ceremonies the world over to celebrate the making of our favourite drink. Over the following pages, we explore some of the customs and traditions of tea drinking worldwide and highlight how this amazing drink has such a deep but diverse cultural following. 1 NEW YORK is believed to be the birthplace of the teabag in 1908 – a tea merchant inadvertently invented it when he wrapped up his tea samples in silk bags to help keep them safe in transit. 2 Yerba mate, an indigenous plant from the Amazon jungle, is the massive favourite hot brew in ARGENTINA and URUGUAY. 3 By the mid-18th century, tea had leapfrogged gin to claim the title of BRITAIN’s favourite drink. 4 IRELAND may be famed for its beloved Guinness, but its people drink more cups of tea per day than any other nation! 5 Mint tea is a staple of MOROCCAN hospitality – if you’re ever offered a cup from a local, be sure to accept it as refusing is seen as extreme rudeness. Take 5 minutes to sit down, relax and enjoy! 6 In SOUTH AFRICA rooibos (or ‘redbush tea’), from the mountainous Cederberg region, is a favourite drink, usually drunk without milk but with lemon or honey. 7 SIBERIA used solid blocks of tea as a currency until the 19th century. 8 Tea in RUSSIA is traditionally made in a samovar – a type of urn used to boil water that has a teapot filled with tea concentrate on the top. 9 When in IRAN do as the locals do and pop a sugar cube in your mouth before taking a sip of hot tea – definitely one for anyone with a sweet tooth to try! 10 The beautifully pink brew of noon chai is extremely popular in the region of KASHMIR. 11 The tea industry in INDIA employs over 1 million people. 12 In MYANMAR, they have an entirely different way to enjoy tea – they pickle it to create lappet! 13 Butter tea is the drink of choice in TIBET – tea churned with yak’s butter and salt may not be to everyone’s taste, but it gives just the right amount of energy to cope with life in the Himalayas. 14 HONG KONG offers the amazingly nicknamed ‘pantyhose milk tea’ – a mixture of black tea and condensed milk that has been passed through a sackcloth bag, which just so happens to look an awful lot like ladies’ hosiery! Yum! 15 TAIWAN gave us bubble tea and we are forever grateful! 16 In AUSTRALIA they ‘billy up the fire’ to make billy tea, made famous by the swagman in the lyrics to Waltzing Matilda. Who knew? The world over, tea has its name synonymous with the country you’re in. It seems that in those countries where tea arrived by ship the words for tea begin with the letter ‘t’ – for instance tee (German), thé (French) and té (Spanish) – while those countries where it arrived overland use words beginning with ‘tch’ or ‘ch’ – çay (Turkish), chay (Russian), chai (Arabic and in India) and po cha (Tibetan) – from the Mandarin ‘cha’. https://www.vingle.net/posts/4873018

Do you know these foods are great enemies for thyroid problems?
Nowadays, many people take thyroid pills. They need to take it forever, much like diabetic medications. Many of us are talking about foods that lower diabetes risk and related dos and don’t. Similarly, we should be aware of the foods to eat and foods to avoid for thyroid problems. Let us discuss it in this article. What is the role of the thyroid gland in our body? The thyroid gland creates hormones that control the body’s metabolic rate, which affects bone growth and maintenance, heart, muscle, and digestive function. It balances our energy and regulates our mood and body heat. A sufficient intake of iodine from the diet is necessary for its proper operation. Two common types of thyroids – Hyperthyroidism & Hypothyroidism When the thyroid produces too much hormone or too little hormone, it is called thyroid disease. The disease known as hyperthyroidism causes the body to burn energy more quickly than it should. Hypothyroidism is just the opposite to it. The body is consuming energy more slowly than it should because the thyroid is not making enough hormones. With many health conditions, some factors are out of our control, including our family history and the environment around us. But diet also plays a big role — and since you’re the one in command of your plate, you can determine which foods to choose and which thyroid foods to avoid. Some of the foods to avoid for thyroid problems  1. Cruciferous Vegetables These vegetables belong to the Brassic plant group. This vegetable has distinctive petals like cabbage. It is one of the important foods to avoid for thyroid issues. Some cruciferous vegetables are: 1. Cabbage. 2. Broccoli. 3. Cauliflower. 4. Bok choy. 5. Brussels sprouts. 6. Kale. 7. Mustard plant. 8. Turnips. 9. Garden cress etc. You might wonder why cruciferous veggies should be avoided for thyroid health. More fiber and other nutrients are present in these plants. However, they might block the generation of thyroid hormones. If you are iodine deficient, you will experience additional effects. Iodine is necessary for a healthy thyroid operation. Therefore, it is best to consume fewer cruciferous vegetables. According to studies, eating these vegetables may prevent the thyroid from using iodine. Cruciferous vegetables that have been cooked can lessen the effect. So you can consume cruciferous veggies in moderation while avoiding salads made of them. 2. Fatty foods Butter, meat, and all things fried are fatty foods. According to Stephanie Lee, MD, Ph.D., associate chief of endocrinology, nutrition, and diabetes at Boston Medical Center and associate professor at Boston University School of Medicine in Massachusetts, fats have been found to interfere with the body’s ability to absorb thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, fats may prevent the thyroid from producing hormones. Some medical professionals advise avoiding any fried foods and limiting your consumption of fats from sources like butter, mayonnaise, margarine, and fatty meat cuts. 3. Soy Foods Even soy and meals containing soy are very good in protein and can prevent cancer and heart disease, but they also have some effects on thyroid issues. But according to current research, soy has no impact on thyroid hormones.  It is generally advised to take thyroid medicine on an empty stomach to prevent inconsistent absorption. Soy is the greatest food source of isoflavones which are linked with thyroid disorders. If you consume soy-containing meals, make sure to wait four hours between eating them and taking your dose. This is true because soy can interfere with proper thyroid medication absorption and cause uneven medication effects.
