WINTER WARM-UP Whether you love New England winters or not, one thing is for sure: they're cold. There's truly no better tasty way to warm up than with home-cooked foods and beverages. Enjoy the season ahead with these treats that pack an immunity punch. Hot Tea January is National Hot Tea Month so grab a mug! Caffeine content and calorie-for-calorie, there's no better beverage to melt the chill away. Made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant or a mixture of herbs and flowers, hot teas and tea tinctures are packed with nutrition. Black, oolong, green and white teas come from Camellia sinensis leaves and provide antioxidants called polyphenols, such as catechins and flavonoids. And although the complementary and alternative medicine status makes tea tinctures such as chamomile, peppermint and hibiscus a bit controversial, research on their antioxidant content and health benefits continue. Compared with 95 to 200 milligrams caffeine per cup for regular coffee, tea offers caffeine savings. Black teas are said to provide between 15 to 60 milligrams caffeine per cup, whereas green tea ranges from 25 to 40 milligrams. Choose decaf versions for even less at 1 to 8 milligrams per cup or tea tinctures that are typically caffeine free.
