Russian Tea

When I think of Russia I think of Sputnik, the Berlin Wall, Khruschchev and a whole host of other things, but how about Russian Tea - I've never heard of it, have you? Let me tell you what it is.

It has something to do with this: black tea. Russian tea is actually a concotion, but it begins with this - the black tea. Now black tea is the same as green tea, it's just taken from the tree at a different time, but it's very strong in antioxidants. The polyphenols in it can prevent cancer, heart disease and also infections. Now what the Russians do is they take the black tea then mix it with vitamin C in the form of tang or lemon juice and then thy add this: cinnamon, such as the cinnamon sticks, which is anti-bacterial, and cloves. The reason why they use the cloves is the cloves will take the pain away - either from the throat or from dental pain.

So, Russian tea is actually a concoction but it's based on black tea. So, when it comes to Russia, think of Russian tea for the prevention and treatment of colds and bronchitis. I think it's more important than Sputnik, you know why? Because it's natural.

And I'm Dr. David Vastola, and that's life.
