We've all heard about the marvelous antioxidant benefits of tea by now: it's chockablock full of polyphenols, which may reduce the risk of certain cancers and heart disease. We've also heard how too much processing can affect the nutritional content of foods, so it makes sense to buy products you know are minimally processed to get the best benefit. Fight the flu this season with a cozy cup of Village Tea Co. Classic Organic White Tea, ($14) made from Chinese bai mu dan leaves. It offers immune system support along with a hefty dose of those polyphenols we mentioned earlier. The flavor is buttery smooth, sweet and light, making it the perfect choice to accompany you, a plush blanket, and a good book.
