Tea Song

Tea for Two
, which I have commented on earlier in this blog, is here sung by my favorite singer, Doris Day. What Led Zeppelin lacks in delicacy, what Keith Richards lacks in subtlety, what the Sex Pistols lack in harmony, Doris Day has in spades. This crooner is a winner from start to finish. This little movie clip illustrates how to integrate a song into a script. The camera moves here and there, and lingers lovingly on the duo at the heart of the scene. When Doris joins in it's sugar and sweetness all the way. All we need is a brass band to complete the contrast. Tea for Two is the perfect song for a lovely fall day. Oh, and since this is a health blog, I might as well mention that tea is very good for you! (Doris & Gordon MacRae at piano in the film Tea for Two. Gene Nelson and Billy De Wolfe are the other actors.)

The research indicates that tea confers numerous health benefits upon those who consume even moderate amounts, especially green and white tea. Benefits include, but are not limited to:
  1. Reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease
  2. Reduction of some types of cancer
  3. Promotion of oral health
  4. Anti-hypertensive effect
  5. Body weight control
  6. Antibacterial effect
  7. Antivirasic activity
  8. Solar ultraviolet protection
  9. Bone mineral density increase
  10. Anti-fibrotic properties, and
  11. Neuroprotective power
