How many different types of tea are there in the world? Well according to UK Tea & Infusions Association there are approximately 1,500 different varieties of tea !!

They also say that Tea breaks are a tradition that have been with us for approximately 200 years, and by the mid 18th C tea replaced ale and gin as the drink of the masses to become Britain’s most popular beverage.

One thing I certainly did NOT know about tea is that it is a natural source of fluoride that can help protect against tooth decay and gum disease. I presumed wrongly that because it stained your teeth it couldn’t be good for them.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
