Are You Ready For This Simple Key To Excellent Health?
The key to unlocking the benefits of tea is quantity. We can’t repeat this enough times – Quantity, Quantity, Quantity.
In the Far East, tea is consumed like water throughout the day. When you wake up, you drink tea with breakfast. When you go to the office in Hong Kong, tea servers circulate the office serving tea at your desk. At lunch, the first question your server will ask you is what tea you’d like. When you visit friends in their home in Korea, they serve you tea. In China, people carry their tea with them in bottles everywhere they go. In Japan, vending machines with a huge assortment of high quality, unsweetened bottled teas are on every street and every corner.
How much is enough? Studies show that a minimum of 400-500mg of EGCG (a type of polyphenol) is required to experience tea benefits. The number of cups this equates to depends largely on what kind of tea is consumed. Not all tea is created equal. The Harvard School of Public Health recommends a minimum of 3 cups of tea a day for health benefits. In the case of Pique, 1 serving of our Jasmine delivers a whopping 300mg of naturally occurring (not added) polyphenols.
So here’s the bottom line: Drink 3 or more cups of high-quality tea a day to unlock the benefits of tea.

Why Aren’t More People Benefiting From Tea?
If you’ve been drinking tea and not experienced health benefits or know someone like this, you’ve come to the right place. Simply not enough people are benefiting from this powerful and easy way to significantly improve their health and performance and it breaks my heart.
The top 2 reasons people don’t experience the benefits of tea are: 1) The tea they are drinking is not potent enough, and 2) They are not drinking enough (doctors suggest at least 3 cups a day). Surprisingly, most people don’t drink more tea because they find it too cumbersome for the payoff. This was exactly my predicament when life got too busy and fast paced. I drank the occasional teabag but never found it enjoyable and defaulted to bottled teas thinking they were healthier when in reality they were just tea flavored sugar water! Then I collected a cupboard full of loose leaf teas which I never brewed and expired. All the while, I considered myself a tea drinker but never experienced any of the benefits like stronger immunity, reduced brain fog, stronger gut health and digestion.
