Tim Horton's Peppermint Tea
These are the days of added, unnecessary ingredients in everything that's prepared and packaged for our consumption. It has now also reached ordinary herbal teas. Why is it that peppermint tea needs to have any flavor added to it? Peppermint is a very strong flavor on its own and would hardly need enhancing by any natural or artificial in flavor. Is it that we have become so addicted to adding ingredients that we have become helpless and must add these natural and artificial flavors to everything?
It is becoming quite alarming that the incidences of certain specific conditions are on the rise every year. Certain heart conditions used to be uncommon that are now more prevalent and actually very common. If you suffer from any heart condition suddenly, it may be wise to check out what you are eating. The saying "you are what you eat" is not just some old wife's tale but very true.
It may be a wise idea to keep a list of the foods you eat for about a month and then set about to change that list and watch to see if you can observe any changes in your health. Some people are very sensitive to natural and artificial flavors as some are to MSG and metabisulphite, an ingredient in shredded coconut and in so-called naturally canned coconut water.
However, getting back to Tim Horton's peppermint tea. The list of ingredients in those tea bags should be made public so that sensitive individuals can choose more wisely and not suffer the consequences of consuming an additive that may impact their health negatively.
There's another saying "that one man's medicine is another's poison" - don't let this be a true saying for you the next time you drink a cup of tea at Tim Horton's restaurant.
