    I absolutely love this book. It is not complicated at all. Ms. Zak tells the history of Herbs and Tea, she gives us a desription of all the the Herbs she possibly can. Can there be anymore? She lists their specialties, benefits, cautions and more. This book is simple, to the point, written in a format that everyone will understand, you can not go wrong. It is exactly what I hoped for when I purchased it. I am so anxious to start my Herb collection for greater health. Thanks Ms. Zak.

    I found this book first at the library and I loved it so much I wanted to have it. It goes through lots of herbs that can be used as teas and what kinds of useful properties they have. It’s very easy to understand.

    Have had this book for a long time, gave it to a friend and repurchased another for myself. This book is just jam packed with helpful information about herbs, what they have been used for historically and what they are used for now, along with caveats about any possible adverse side effects with several of the herbs, which parts of the herbs are used, i.e. roots, leaves, bark, etc. I have referred to it over and over again through the years, so as to try and stay away from pharmaceutical remedies as much as possible.

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!

    One of the gals at the health food store that I go to recommended this book. If I had to pick only one book on herbal teas, this would be the one. It is a quick, easy reference – and right on the money with the medicinal uses and any cautions that should be taken. I built my ‘herbal tea cabinet’ based on the advice from this book – and I need a bigger cabinet! (smile)

    The cost is just pennies for the 20,000 secrets!

    Go for it!

    Green Tea and Weight Loss – Losing Weight the Natural Way!


    Green tea weight loss has become a hot topic of discussion in the weight loss and medical circles. The documented positive effects of green tea on losing weight has caused more and more people looking to lose weight to seek out this ancient brew.

    However does green tea actually help you to lose weight? Is this all simply hype or is there something real and factual to the stories? Well here are some interesting facts about drinking green tea and weight loss.

    Advantages of Drinking Green Tea for Weight Loss

    Green tea and boosting your metabolism – Recently the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported its findings on the effect of drinking green tea and weight loss. Researchers found that green tea extract actually increased the metabolism of green tea drinkers dramatically. So much so that in a 24 hour period the average metabolic rate of the green tea drinkers in the studies increased by over 4%. Green tea possesses extremely high levels of catechin polyphenols. These substances actually aid your body in increasing its ability to oxidize fat and speeds up thermo-genesis which is how quickly your body burns off excess fat and calories. This is a critical factor of drinking green tea and weight loss.

    Researchers also found that green tea regulates glucose leevels. Green tea helps to keep your blood levels stable after each meal and prevents spikes in insulin. This means less fat is stored after each meal while drinking green tea. This is directly tied to the active ingredients called catechins found in high levels in green tea.

    Green tea also reduces your cravings and appetite – In a recent study it was found that green tea extracts caused rats to lose up to 21 percent of their body weight after a week of being injected with green tea extract. These rats were injected daily with the green tea extract. As a result the rats consumed up to 60 percent less food after a week. It’s believed that this is tied directly to green tea’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels.

    Green Tea and Weight Loss – The Bottom Line

    Green tea helps you lose weight by increasing your metabolic rate boosting your body’s ability to burn excess calories and stored fat. Green tea also regulates your blood sugar levels and suppresses your appetite. Green tea is also a far superior choice to drinking coffee each day. So overall the stories are indeed true in regards to the power of drinking green tea and weight loss.

    How to Brew Green Tea ?


    Although it’s not hard to do, there are a few things to be considered when brewing green tea

    Water quality…

    Good quality water is essential for making a good cup of green tea. Make sure you’re using good water.

    Water temperature…

    This is where most mistakes are made. Brew your green tea too hot, and your tea will become bitter. The correct temperature does vary depending on the green tea, but for most it is around 165-170 degrees F (73-76 C.)

    Proportion of green tea to water…

    Most of our green teas are brewed at 1 heaping teaspoon (5 grams) per 8 ounces of water, but this can vary depending on the tea.

    Brew time…

    Generally, two minutes is all it takes Any longer, and the taste may becomes too bitter. Also, it’s very important to NOT stir, shake, or mix the tea.

    Allowing the tea room to expand…

    This is rather important. Chinese green tea is compact – it needs room to expand. Tea balls do not work well at all. You’ll be much better off using a Japanese teapot that was designed with green tea in mind. It is a one time investment of between $30-$100, and will make your life so much easier.

    Take a good look at the inside of this green tea teapot to the left, made in Japan. The infuser screen goes all the way around the inside of the teapot, allowing the tea leaves to expand fully. This is the best kind to use. These teapots are rather small, about the size of a grapefruit, and usually hold 8-13 ounces or so.

    Great book to learn about the healing & health benefits of herbal teas
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    I bought this book because I think teas are a little known and seldom used segment of herbal healing. Teas are easy to make & use & deliver big healing health benefits. I think it is important to get your bulk tea in organic or wildcrafted form such as in your yard or local area. Tea delivers the herbal agents to the bloodstream more quickly than other methods. I felt this book was very well priced and a superb value. I think it is the best and only book on teas that you will need to buy.

    Poor research, made-up translations
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    Based on the Zen principle that “how you do anything is how you do everything”, I would say this book is primarily invented by the author. I started looking at her “translations” of the herb names and was floored by her bogus information. For instance, she says that Calendula in France was called “souci du jardin” or, according to Zak “sauce of the garden”! Souci is a French word for marigold! Souci du jardin simply means garden marigold. She also says that souci du jardin can mean “sun follower”–completely made up. She has other howlers in the book, mixed in with accurate stuff–my concern is that if some of the writing seems sloppy and improvised, then for something like medicinal herbal information a reader would do better to go to one of the standard publications on herbal medicines and tonics.

    small book, lot of info
    Rating:5 out of 5 stars
    This small book has a lot of information. I am more than satisfied with all that I have read. I was already into herbal teas, but was still hungry for more information. I am surrounded or know many people who need information and guidance to a healthy & better life. A little more than 2 years before I purchased this book, I had stopped taking those (OTC) Over The Counter meds/ drugs. I didn’t feel that those products were effective. I felt like my symptoms were just temporarily suppressed, because the symptoms kept coming back. Thanks to Kevin Trudeau’s book, I know for a fact that those drugs were absolutely no good and extremely dangerous. I have been going to the Natural Health food stores and constantly searching for more information so I can help myself & others. I came across this book in the Natural food store and was drawn to the title of this book. I began reading it soon as I arrived home. In chapter 5 its an herbal guide to health. In this A-Z guide you can look up your current health problems, and find the names of the herb like acid reflux, adrenal glands, air purifier, asthma, blood clots, blood pressure, blood sugar, inflammation,herpes simplex… and more. In chapter 6 you will be informed about each herb listed; the history, benefits, and guidance so that you can become a smart consumer.

    I have been reading this book every night before retiring to bed and I am very intrigued by the information in the book. I am a bit disappointed that there is no mentioned on recommended manufacturer’s of tea. Other wise; the book is a good read.
