Long Weekend

>> Mar 31, 2014

We have long weekend. Today Monday is holiday here. Indonesian Hindus celebrate the Saka New Year, the “Day of Silence”. If you are in Bali Island, Indonesia this Monday, you’ll see empty streets there, even Ngurah Rai airport is closed for 24 hours. 

For Blue Monday, I’d like to share different issue. I’m a green tea drinker and I just knew about the negative effect of green tea consumption. Before, I’m not aware that green tea can stain the teeth. I like drinking it as its high antioxidants. Dr. Karisma Jaradi, a cosmetic dentist, said that two cups of green tea daily is healthy but the increased intake may give you teeth problem. It won’t harm the teeth, but excessive drinking may change the natural white color of your teeth to more yellow and stained look.

Drinking other herbal teas may cause similar problem. Such beverages are acidic in nature and enhance the porosity of the outer layer of teeth. It will ease the pigmented molecules contained in teas to stay on the teeth enamel and consequently cause staining.

The simple prevention: rinsing your mouth with water after consuming herbal teas and coffees. The dentists recommend the usage of whitening toothpaste to lessen stains. If the stains are worse and you hate it, visit your dentist to get required dental treatment.

First of all...if I correctly understand: "Happy Silence Day"... and how interesting to find out such important advices about tea and coffee, as well (relating to teeth enamel problems). Have a great week!

Hi Lina,

I drink coffee every day, and my teeth show it. I brush with a good toothpaste and visit the dentist regularly, but . . .

I still choose to have my drink!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful blue cup.

You asked about the taste of the nasturtium . . . It's a mild peppery taste. Pleasant.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

True! And lately there have been news stories about heavy metals in tea -- not good!

Interesting..all this while we were told only the goodness of tea to health.

But keep drinking anyway, only rinse your mouth immediately. :-)
