INTRODUCTION TO CAMELLIA SINENSIS (TEA)

Camellia sinensis is the scientific classification for the tea plant. One of the most interesting and surprising facts about tea for newcomers is that ALL types of tea, white, green, oolong, and black, come from the same plant. What determines a type of tea's "color" is the processing the newly picked leaves will undergo before they reach your cup.

TEAth FACT by Kristina Wiley, DDS, CEO Linde Lane, 805 North Lincoln #A, Dixon, CA 95620 (916) 799-3315 www.lindelane.com

Following a surgical procedure in my dental office, a patient goes home with three items.  The first is a list of postoperative care instructions.  The second is cotton gauze.  The third is a black tea bag, in case of emergency.  Not a tea drinking emergency, but rather an uncontrollable bleeding emergency.  The tannins in black tea are beneficial in controlling bleeding.  Occasionally sutures can't even stop the heaviest bleeder, so we reach for the trusty tea bags.  Just a little warm water and a little pressure, and before too long a clot is formed and the bleeding will subside.  Works well on skin injuries too.  Of course, if they don't experience excess bleeding, then they can enjoy a cup of tea.
