It’s the world’s second most popular and cheapest beverage (after water), so shouldn’t you know a little more about tea? Tidbits has the goods on this drink, so listen up and learn! • Every day about three billion cups of tea are consumed around the world. In America, it can be found in 80% of households, and an estimated 127 million Americans are drinking it on any given day. Most of that tea comes from India, the world’s largest tea producer, processing about 850,000 tons each year.

• Tea as we know it is about 5,000 years old. Legend has it that a Chinese emperor discovered a good cup of tea in 2737 B.C. when some tea leaves off the tree into his pot of boiling water, producing a pleasant aroma. Tea became popular in Europe during the 1600s and was brought to North America by the colonists. Britain’s Duchess of Bedford is said to have created the traditional afternoon tea around 1840, when she needed a pick-me-up to combat what she called “that sinking feeling.”

• When the British government heavily taxed the tea shipped to the American colonies, in 1773, a group of 116 men dressed as Native Americans boarded British ships and tossed 342 chests of tea overboard, about 90,000 lbs. (40,823 kg) worth. In today’s currency, that was equal to nearly a million dollars! Turn the page for more!

IT’S TEA TIME (continued):

• There are all kinds of tea – white, green, oolong, and black – but they all come from the same plant, the Carnelia Sinensis. The end product is determined by the processing of the tea leaves.

• While white tea skips the steps of processing (the leaves are just steamed and dried), green, black, and oolong teas all go through a series of steps. It starts with withering, when the tea leaves are spread out and dried in a warm environment, which makes them pliable. A rolling machine is next, twisting the leaves in order to release the flavorful natural oils. Some more expensive grades of teas are rolled by hand, resulting in a higher quality. The leaves then undergo an oxidation process, when they are spread out in a cool room. At this point, the tea leaves are still green, but as they take in oxygen they gradually turn darker. The darkening can be stopped by heating. Green tea is not oxidized, oolong tea is oxidized for a short time, and the dark black tea oxidation process, which takes about three hours, is uninterrupted. The chemical reactions that take place during oxidation are what alters the leaves’ color and flavor. • While a cup of tea does contain caffeine, it doesn’t compare to the amount found in coffee. A cup of tea has about 40 mg. of caffeine compared to coffee’s 110 mg per cup. The lesser-processed green tea has even less

caffeine than black leaves. But if you want a higher caffeine level in your tea, sip yerba maté, which has about the same amount as coffee. It’s made from the leaves of a South American rain forest holly tree, and contains 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, and an abundance of antioxidants.

• Herbal teas, also known as tisanes, aren’t really tea at all. They come from the roots, stems, and flowers of other plants. There are numerous types of tisanes, depending on what part of the plant they come from. Mint, verbena, and lemongrass varieties are leaf tisanes, while chamomile, hibiscus, and lavender are flower tisanes. Cinnamon is a considered a bark type, while ginger, Echinacea, and chicory are root tisanes.

• The invention of the tea bag came about by accident. In 1904, a New York tea importer was looking for a cheaper way to send samples to customers. Thomas Sullivan had been using tin boxes, but as this proved expensive, he began wrapping the tea in small silk bags. His customers didn’t realize the bags were just packaging, and brewed their tea in them. Soon after, Sullivan was receiving orders for the new product. Today, 96% of the world brews its tea using a tea bag. • More of tea’s many medicinal and health benefits are being uncovered every day. Green tea seems to be especially healthful. It is high in the amino acid theanine, which has been shown to reduce stress and improve mental concentration. It may also increase the body’s immune system and antioxidant powers. Lab testing indicates that catechins, a type of antioxidant, inhibit the growth of cancer IT’S

▶ Writing-on-Stone Park near Lethbridge contains the greatest concentration of rock art on the North American Great Plains, with over 50 petroglyph sites and thousands of works dating back some 3,000 years.

▶ The speed of the elevator in the CN Tower is equal to the rate of ascent of a jet during take-off. Passengers rise 340 m (1,136 ft) in just 58 seconds. ▶ In Vegreville, Alberta, you’ll find the world’s largest Ukrainian Easter egg. Created in 1974, it stands more than three stories tall, 9 m (31 ft) long, and weighs about 2.5 t (5,512 lb), all while pivoting in the wind like a weather vane. The software created to guide the lasers which cut the egg’s 1,108 individual tiles was eventually purchased and used for the cutting the exterior tiles of the space shuttle. ▶ Prairie dogs, which used to be found all over the Canadian prairie, are now found only in Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan. ▶ At Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, researchers have uncovered fossils of nearly 500 species of life, ranging from microscopic fern spores to large carnivorous dinosaurs. About 35 species of dinosaurs found there date back nearly 75 million years.

cells and may help reduce the breakdown of cartilage. A recent university study indicated that tea has more potent antioxidants than 22 fruits and vegetables that were tested. Scientists say drinking green tea might also even help prevent tooth decay! And a study in the Netherlands has shown that those who drink catechin-rich tea are 50% less likely to die of heart disease.

• Tea is not just for drinking! On the outside, green tea can help with inflammation. Soothe your puffy eyes with a soaked, chilled green tea bag. The same will work for insect bites. Keep mosquitoes away by smoothing the skin with damp tea leaves. Black tea bags have been proven beneficial in removing plantar warts. It’s the acidic tannin present in tea that shrinks the wart, just by placing a cooled bag on the wart for 15 minutes three times a day.

• Tisanes also have medicinal qualities. If you have an upset stomach, try sipping peppermint tea, since peppermint relaxes the muscles that give you stomach cramps. The antiinflammatory properties of licorice root can reduce the swelling of a sore throat. It’s also well known that chamomile tea is a relaxant and is a natural sleep aid. • And it’s not just the human body that reaps the benefits of tea. It’s a great fertilizer for your

Pet Bits Q: I’ve begun to notice that our 10-year-old Shih Tzu’s leg quivers when she lifts it to go to the bathroom. Is this a warning that something is wrong? A: “Your observation is astute,” cheers Dr. Kate Knutson, AAHA President. “Anytime, there is a change in your pet’s behavior, contacting your veterinarian is the right thing to do. In this case, the leg quivering could be an indication of pain.” Since your dog isn’t likely to replicate this particular behavior at the veterinary clinic, try to capture it on video, suggests Knutson, of Bloomington, MN If indeed your dog is in pain, the next step, of course, is to determine why, which can only be done with a thorough examination.

DVD Reviews “DARK SKIES”: There’s little in this family-plaguedby-otherworldly-forces tale that you haven’t seen before, but good acting by reliable stars goes a long way in selling the premise again. Keri Russell who’s had a resurgence this year, thanks also to her FX series “The Americans” - and Josh Hamilton (“J. Edgar”) play spouses and parents who come to believe their house also contains unwelcome visitors. The always-welcome J.K. Simmons (“The Closer”) plays an authority on the paranormal who tries to help the couple. DVD extras: audio commentary by writer-director Scott Stewart, producer Jason Blum, executive producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and editor Peter Gvozdas; deleted and alternate scenes. *** “LONGMIRE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: In the week when the modern Western series based on Craig Johnson novels - begins its second A&E Network round, this set of freshman episodes introduces Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire, a tight-lipped, troubled Wyoming sheriff. He has very close competition as he bids to keep his job while continuing his mission to solve crimes, which occur quite regularly in his jurisdiction. Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”), Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville”) and Lou Diamond Phillips also star. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; deleted scenes; photo gallery. *** “RED WIDOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: Recently aired on ABC, the melodrama about a

sudden widow (Radha Mitchell, “Pitch Black”) forced into her slain husband’s mob life comes to DVD. She determines that continuing his activities is the only way she can ensure the safety of the rest of her family, though that turns out to be no guarantee, as she repeatedly finds out. Goran Visnjic (“ER”), Rade Serbedzija, Jaime Ray Newman and Lee Tergesen (“Oz”) also star. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** “LORE”: A recipient of several international awards, this drama features a notable performance by young Saskia Rosendahl as the title character, one of several children of a Nazi couple taken prisoner at the end of World War II. The siblings set out for their grandmother’s house, and en route, Lore comes to realize the meaning of what has happened to her family and her country. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; two “making-of ” documentaries; deleted scenes; alternate ending; panel discussion. *** “NOVA: MIND OF A RAMPAGE KILLER”: Given recent tragedies caused by a lone individual that ended in multiple deaths, it probably was inevitable that the PBS science series would attempt a clinical explanation for such occurrences. Former CNN anchor-reporter Miles O’Brien seeks such information in this episode, examining social influences and functions of the brain - or the failure of such - that can factor into actions resulting in such devastation. *** “ATTACK OF THE JURASSIC SHARK”: Steven Spielberg must be so proud. We can’t deny we’re amused by the notion of blending “Jurassic Park” and “Jaws” and getting ... this. An oil company’s plans set loose a prehistoric terror that threatens college students and art thieves who happen to be at the same remote location. Christine Emes and Emanuelle Carriere are among the bait - er, stars - and we’re also sort of tickled that a writer is credited here for “additional dialogue.” Such as? “Look out, it’s the Jurassic shark!”? **
