To a Tea

Next Wednesday, January 16, at 7 p.m., Borders Books (900 State St.) will host Mark “Dr. Tea” Ukra, who will discuss and sign his new book, The Ultimate Tea Diet: How Tea Can Boost Your Metabolism, Shrink Your Appetite, and Kick-Start Remarkable Weight Loss, as well as various teas and their health benefits. Millions of Americans go on and off diets every day-especially in January. But they don’t need fad diets to help them shed pounds. According to “Dr. Tea,” what they need to know is simple: Drinking tea will help them lose weight. Better still, tea is inexpensive, tastes good, and is available to everyone. Ukra is the owner of Dr. Tea’s, a tea garden and emporium in Los Angeles. He also distributes his quality teas and products through major retailers across the country, appears regularly as a leading authority on tea in magazines and on television, and hosts an online radio show as well as a series of programs called Dr. Tea Minutes on Sirius Radio. For info, call 899-3668.
