Our Latest Meeting

Thorn Birds

Thornbury WI members had another very enjoyable evening this month sampling teas. Anne of Attic Teas did a very interesting presentation explaining the health benefits of the various teas. Anne is from Attic Teas, Attic being short for All The Tea In China. Anne started her tea business 10 years ago in a shop in Bristol. The shop became rather like a café so she now concentrates on tea, doing talks to different groups and businesses and going to various events, helping people to find the tea which will best benefit their personality and lifestyle.

We then spent the evening testing the various teas. There are basically 5 different teas from the delicate White Tea which is the purist of the teas, which is fantastic for healing, strengthening and hydrating, to Green Tea, 0olong Tea, Black Tea and the very dark and rich Pu-erh Tea which is a fermented tea fantastic for digestive health and a great liver tonic. Each tea having its own particular health benefits.

She finished the evening by recommending a blend which incorporated all the different teas. We are now looking forward to our next speaker who will be John Bennet from RNLI. We meet at The Methodist Church Hall at 7.30 on the third Tuesday of every month, and always welcome new members.
