For this women's Wednesday I wanted to share with you new benefits that have been credited to female tea regular users. According to GEN (Genetic, Engineering, and Biotechnology News) "Female Tea Drinkers See Epigenetic Changes in Cancer and Hormone Genes" What does this mean? Epigenetic means that something nongenetic can influence on your actual genes, in this article, a group of researchers from Upsala University were looking into the effects of drinking tea and coffee on the DNA methylation, and during their studies they found out that it had a positive impact on female users, where "28 regions known for triggering estrogen production and cancerous tumors that were differentially methylated". which means that it can change, decrease and delay the formation of cancer.
Even though according to the author this is a subject that is going to need further research this is great news for all of us tea lovers!

Browsing the internet I came across this interesting article by Amy Covey for World of Tea. Here she shares how the tea world is evolving, in major tea producing countries such as China, where business tradition is always lead by the man.
"western ideals of gender equality are slowly permeating the patriarchal social systems of China, and more women are beginning to participate in their family’s business."
According to the author, since women are in managerial roles, the farm production is more organized, and these leaders are more prepared to be involved in every aspect of the operations.
The influence of higher education is another factor that is revolutionizing the tea. Men and women who have access to it have brought knowledge and technology to the industry.
In conclusion, female lead tea farms have proved that are as efficient and more responsive than the ones lead by man reinforcing why patriarchy models are obsolete and gender equality is needed to build a better society.
