You see a lot of commercials, ads and references to Santa Claus this time of year. There’s always the cliché scene where some cute little kid leaves out cookies and milk for the old guy. Truth be told, he’d probably prefer a hot cup of green tea. After all, tea is the most consumed drink in the world. And it would be better for someone his age. I think if I asked him, he’d say he drinks green tea on a regular basis and believes it contributes to his longevity. And he’d be right. We know that drinking green tea is good for our overall health, and university research, as I’ve reported in prior posts, has shown that there’s an ingredient in green tea that can slow the progression of dementia by slowing the formation of plaques in the brain.
If you’re scrambling for last-minute gifts to give your loved ones and friends this year, consider tea related goodies such as the adorable tea infusers I found on eBay by GamaGo. They are animal shaped silicone loose leaf tea infusers that come in orange/cat, gray/hippo, green/turtle, blue/otter, white/polar bear, and there’s another blue one shaped like a man. These would make a great gift for the family who wants to encourage their children to start drinking tea at an early age. We know kids love to play in their food, this is one thing you’ll want them to play with as you teach them all about tea and tea culture. It’s estimated that nearly 90% of millennials drink tea, so someone’s getting through to our younger generation.
The other good thing about this find is that you can use a Groupon coupon to snag a deal on eBay that will save you lots of time and money. Groupon offers additional savings on top of eBay’s already deeply discounted prices, and you can easily qualify for free shipping. You can save up to 70% on holiday deals and get free shipping by shopping on Groupon. So if you searching for stocking stuffers, last minute items, and want to save time and money, put down the car keys, make yourself a hot cup of tea and pick up your mouse.
