Introduction to the benefits of green tea

The benefits of green tea have become famous to people all around the world. Among the varieties of tea available, green tea is the most famous due to its health benefits. It does not only work wonders for your mood, it also does wonders for our body.

Benefits of green tea

There are many green tea benefits and here are just a few of them. Green tea contains caffeine. Caffeine makes our bodies physically and mentally active. Drinking green tea helps improve mental functioning and helps retain memory. Thus, drinking green tea can help elevate your senses at work or at home, reading or studying. It is best drunk in the morning to wake you up and can also be drunk at the middle and end of the day when you want to excite and freshen up.

Green tea as a diuretic

Green tea acts as a natural diuretic. It makes you urinate more. During urination, excess fluid is being flushed out by your kidneys, along with toxic substances that can cause potential harm to your body. Because the excess fluid is lost, drinking green tea can help you manage weight. A balanced diet, exercise, and green tea can help you lose weight faster. This is one of the many advantages of this drink as when you drink green tea weight loss will occur all by itself.

Reducing blood pressure with green tea

Elevated blood pressure puts you at risk for complications such as a stroke. Certain medications used to lower blood pressure act by causing the body to urinate more. When you drink green tea, you get almost the same effect as taking a diuretic or antihypertensive drug. Therefore, green tea can help you manage your blood pressure.

Green tea as an antibacterial additive

You might have encountered mouthwashes that contain green tea extracts. Green tea has antibacterial properties. It helps fight bacteria in your mouth, causing unwanted mouth odors and throat and gum infections. This means that drinking green tea will not only freshen your breath, but it will also clean it.

Is green tea good for your skin?

Green tea is also good for our skin. Because of its antioxidant and antibacterial properties, green tea can help improve our complexion and fight certain skin problems, such as acne. Drinking green tea alone can help rejuvenate our skin, and the teabag can be reused by applying topically to affected areas.

Green tea as a health booster

Perhaps the most amazing thing green tea can do is to help fight cancer. Green tea contains antioxidants called polyphenols, chemicals that fight free radicals. Free radicals are chemicals that oxidize our cells, causing cell aging and deterioration. Antioxidants in green tea fight those free radicals in the body, making our body younger and our cells healthier. Cells are renewed, and there is a prohibition on the growth of cancer cells.

Conclusion

Drinking 2-3 cups of green tea a day, along with a healthy lifestyle, can help prevent certain diseases. It can help save you from the future cost of medicines and hospitalizations.

What I have found out about green tea – it can help to reduce swelling


The first thing that I have found out about green tea is that it has been shown to decrease swelling and also assist with arthritic pain. The reason that this is a big deal is that the pain associated with arthritis is one of the most painful and annoying feelings that you can have. It hurts in your bones, your joints, and all over the affected areas, with little relief for severe sufferers.

One of the most recent things that have come out in the news is that green tea actually helps with your cholesterol levels.

The next thing that it can do is lower the bad cholesterol in your body, which is sometimes the cause of cardiovascular disease. These two actions alone are good enough reasons to drink green tea, but we are not done there yet. If you are looking

Reducing free radicals


The next thing that green tea has been shown to assist with is reducing the number of free radicals and in turn, the damage they cause in the body. Free radicals are things you do not want in your body and are generally hard to deal with as they are created and float around your body and bloodstream. This is why they are hard to deal with, and if green tea can assist with this, then I would suggest trying it out.

Drinking tea in this regard is a bit more a preventative measure as you will most likely not be able to say that by drinking 1 cup of green tea, you removed 1 free radical, however, you can say that by drinking green tea you might be reducing the possibility of your body being affected by free radicals. Again, not 100% conclusive, but really what do you have to lose?

Another thing that you can use to supplement your green tea intake is to take capsules, like vitamins, with the extract inside.

Green Tea Caffeine


One thing that you will want to take notice of is the fact that green tea contains caffeine.

If you are one of these people, then there is nothing to worry about as decaffeinated teas are coming out that still contain all the health benefits of tea but don’t contain any of the caffeine.

Introduction

We all know green tea is good for us for some reason or another but read below and get more information about what green tea is, what makes great loose green tea , and other cool things about green tea!

What does green tea symbolize?

Green symbolizes nature and the environment. It also symbolizes health and growth. Green tea lives up to the symbolization of its color as this beverage has powerful health benefits and natural remedies. There are many different types of green tea available online, but if you are looking for some of the best green tea online then take a look at our green tea section as there are many great flavors there!

Where does green tea come from?

Green tea comes from the tea plant, camellia Sinensis. This shrub grows up to 7 feet tall, and its leaves are green in color. This same plant is also the source of black and white tea. The difference is how the leaves are processed. The leaves in green tea never undergo the fermentation process that black tea does; therefore, more antioxidants remain in green tea than in black tea. Among the three (green, black and white tea), green tea has lesser caffeine and is the most abundant in antioxidants.

Green tea originates in China. Traditionally, this drink was used as a medicine by the Chinese. This drink became popular in Asia, particularly in its neighboring countries, Japan and India. Today, green tea is drunk by people worldwide and grown on plantations in many countries. It is available in loose-leaf sachets and teabags, which are more common. Of course, we are a bit biased toward our own loose-leaf green tea, but if you are looking for a nice green gunpowder tea with a twist, I would recommend taking a look at gunpowder green tea as it is just amazing both in aroma, flavor, and overall depth of taste!

How do you brew green tea?

Green tea is brewed by adding hot, freshly boiled, but not boiling, water. A teabag can be steeped in a mug with about 8 ounces of water for 2-3 minutes, depending on personal preference. The longer you steep the teabag, the more caffeine the tea has. The resulting tea has a smooth, fragrant aroma and is greenish to yellow. It should not be steeped longer than 5 minutes as this may cause the tea to be slightly bitter.

What are green teas benefits?

Green tea has been known for its powerful health benefits. It has natural diuretic and antibacterial properties. It is also popular due to its antioxidant content. Drinking green tea puts you at a lesser risk for obesity, high blood pressure, stroke, and cancer. Plus, it makes you look and feel younger due to its anti-aging properties. It protects you from common infections and strengthens your immune system.

Conclusion

If you want to live a healthy lifestyle, green tea should be a part of your daily habit. Drinking 2-3 cups daily along with a balanced diet and exercise, can contribute to a healthy mind and body with green tea.

Looking to lose weight? Then green tea is just what you are looking for.

If you are trying to get that shape, you’ve always wanted and are finding that no matter what you are doing, you just aren’t getting there, then keep reading as you might be surprised how good green tea is for losing weight. Tired of all weight loss programs that simply do not work for you? Tried all the diets that can possibly help you out? Well, here is a tip for you: green tea diet. This is a no-nonsense tip. Read on, and I’ll explain to you why and how.

Can green tea burn calories?

Research suggests that drinking 5 cups of green tea daily (in an average adult) can burn up to 8o calories. Eighty calories a day will amount to 560 calories a week, which is equivalent to losing about 0.16 pounds a week. This weight might be small for your weekly goal, but no other beverage can help you lose weight a healthy and natural way. You might not think of this as a huge green tea benefit, but the reality is that this weight loss can add up, and over the course of a year you could actually get in shape by drinking amazing green tea!

The secret to green tea’s weight loss action is its caffeine and polyphenol content. The polyphenol in green tea, EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), is also responsible for its antioxidant properties.

In every cup of green tea, there is about 50 mg of caffeine.  Caffeine is a slight appetite suppressant. This may explain why drinking coffee or tea keeps you alert throughout the morning without feeling hungry or even without a full breakfast. Burning those extra calories your body is storing can help remove excess weight.

What does Caffeine do to your body?

Caffeine increases our body heat through the process of thermogenesis. When our body produces more heat, more calories are burned. However, it is also thought that the thermogenesis in green tea is mostly accounted for its EGCG. EGCG is known to speed up metabolism and increase the number of calories burned with every physical activity. The EGCG in green tea also lowers bad cholesterol levels and normalizes blood sugar levels.

Benefits of green tea

Green tea as a diuretic?

Green tea is a natural diuretic. As we urinate, excess body fluid is flushed out, along with that excess weight. However, caution should be practiced when there is frequent urination. Dehydration might occur as a side effect. Fluids lost should also be replaced. This is why it is important to read this article, as it will fill you in with all the info about too much green tea

Conclusion

You can’t expect weight loss to occur overnight. Green tea does not melt the weight right away, but it does help in losing it day by day. A balanced diet with fruits and vegetables and regular exercise is the best way to start. Try the green tea diet, and you’re on your way to a healthy shape. One of the important things about weight loss and green tea is that the better the green tea, the better the results. That is why it is very important to get good quality before you brew your tea.

Differences Between Green Tea and White Tea

Introduction

There are many reasons why people enjoy drinking a cup of delicious hot tea. Whether it is Green tea or white tea, it is really not a bad choice, but it is a question that always come up, and that is: what is the big difference between white tea and green tea?

Types of Tea

Many kinds of tea are available in the market like white tea, green tea, black tea, and more. However, if you think about white tea vs green tea and are wondering about those two types of tea then keep reading as you will soon find out the differences between the two teas. Each has its own characteristics and you must be mindful of it. You can choose white tea or perhaps green tea to drink to refresh your tired body.

What is white tea?

If you want to know what white tea is or what green tea is, then don’t worry as I am here to explain. White tea is often made from buds or perhaps from the younger dried leaves, which is being dried under the sun or perhaps by means of steaming. This tea is not oxidized and comes from the plant known as Camellia sinensis. If you are thinking that the description of white tea sounds familiar, then don’t worry as the same plant actually makes both white and green tea.  Here is a pretty example of a tasty white tea that I love:

In the Fujian Chinese province, white tea is their favorite and this kind of tea has many varieties. The variety of white tea includes white peony, silver needle, life eyebrow, tribute, Ceylon white, Assam white, and African white. The popularity of white tea in China is due to its health benefits. The tea prevents heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, fights certain cancers, and helps in the breakdown of elastin and collagen.

What is green ea?

Now that you know a bit about white tea then, I will explain what green tea is all about. As mentioned before, green tea comes from the same plant as the white tea. However, the biggest difference between the two types of leaves is how they are processed. When white tea is steamed then dried, green tea is steamed, fired for a bit of fermentation, and then rolled. That is really the biggest difference between green tea and white tea. Here is a beautiful picture of one of my favorite green teas around, with some nice fruit pieces:

Hand-rolled green tea leaves mixed with fruit pieces, resulting in a beautiful and tasty cup of tea.

Green tea also originated in China and is now being expanded throughout all Asia and has also popular in the West. In fact, many coffee shops like Satrbucks offer this kind of tea, and there was already lots of green tea flavors that people can choose from. The benefits are similar to white tea and have the ability to fight Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. In fact, drinking green tea can lower the risk of breast cancer for women.

Conclusion

While these teas come from the same variety of plants with similar health benefits, some other differences depend on the consumers. If one loves the taste of white tea, then this would be his or her favorite. However, studies show that there are many health benefits found in green tea compared to white tea.

So, at the end of the day, the choice is yours. But if you ask me either of these teas is a good choice, so you can’t really go wrong ;)

Introduction

A lot of people today are opting for green tea . Why, you might ask? Well, it seems that this new mass adoption of green tea has as much to do with the healthy benefits of green tea as the awesome taste of drinking it hot or cold.

Green tea, and all real tea, is a very popular tea in China and all botanists believe that the plant originated in Asia. The caffeine content of this drink can increase body alertness, defend against drowsiness, and increase capacity for physical labor. However, this isn’t suitable for everybody. Too much green tea can cause negative effects to the body due to the caffeine content if taken excessively. One thing to note as well is that white tea, black tea, and green tea ( as well as the different types of teas within those categories) can all have different features, and if you are confused, here is a great post about Differences Between Green Tea and White Tea .

How much is too much green tea?

As we all know, too much of one thing is never been good for our health. So the question must be asked, how much is too much green tea? For people who want to know the exact amount of green tea to drink, it is really hard to state a rule as there are so many variables, such as the tea drinker size, the amount of time they have had drinking tea, individuals sensitivity to caffeine, as well as the types of tea leaves being used but it might be a good guide to say more that 5-6 cups of tea is a good range to put yourself in.

a nice brew for this cup of green tea

Again, please let me clarify that this is only a guide, and you are the only one who can judge the interactions and feelings of your body after tea. Personally, I enjoy around 10 cups of green tea a day.

Symptoms of having too much tea in a day

If you have had too much tea in a day, you might want to watch out for possible symptoms such as: nervousness, headache, vomiting, sleeplessness, irritability, diarrhea, irregular heartbeat, heartburn, tremor, dizziness, confusion, and convulsion. Another thing about tea is that it has the capacity to lessen the amount of iron absorbed from food. To get all the benefits of drinking green tea, drink in moderation.

I do not want to scare anyone away from drinking tea it is just important to know that although it is thought of as a good thing to drink, you can have too much of a good thing. Even water, one of the things humans are made of, can be fatal if too much is consumed.

Benefits of drinking tea

Now enough of the bad talk, let’s talk about the good aspects of drinking tea. Catechins are the major component of green tea which is considered as a strong antioxidant that can lower cholesterol, help fight certain cancers, and can make one fit and healthy. With so many benefits of tea in the body, some people make this as a component of their delicious smoothies. Combined with other fruits, this can lessen the bitter taste and refresh one’s body after work. According to research, consuming 3 cups of green tea a day can provide 240 up to 320 mg of polyphenols.

Conclusion

So at the end of the day, you are really the only one who can choose how much tea you are drinking each day and what is right for your body so just stay safe and drink a reasonable amount of tea as there are a lot of green tea benefits that can be enjoyed daily and safely.

What is matcha green tea?

Introduction

Got a matcha? Meet Matcha! Matcha is a type of green tea made by finely ground, powdered tea leaves mixed with hot water to produce a green, frothy, delicious drink. It is a beverage served during traditional Japanese tea ceremonies and is an ingredient in some Japanese dishes.

What is Matcha Green Tea?

Matcha is made from the finest tea leaves. Only the fresh, newly-budded tea leaves are hand-picked to ensure their quality. 20 days before harvesting, the tea bushes are placed under a shade. This process makes the leaves produce more chlorophyll and more amino acids. Unlike green tea, wherein the leaves undergo initial rolling, the tea leaves in matcha are laid out flat to dry in the shade. The stems and veins of the leaves are removed, leaving only pure tea leaves. After drying, the leaves are stone-grounded to create a fine, talc-like, bright green powder.

The History of Matcha Tea

In the Japanese tea ceremony, there are 2 ways of preparing matcha: the usucha, or thin tea, and the koicha, or thick tea. In preparing the tea, you need the following equipment: natsume (tea caddy), teaspoon (chasaku), tea whisk (chasen), and tea bowl (chawan). Usucha is made by mixing a half teaspoon of matcha with 1/2 cup of hot water. Koicha is made by 1 heaping teaspoon of matcha to 1/4 cup of water. Koicha is usually made from tea plants that are more than 30 years old and, thus, produces higher-quality tea leaves. Matcha is traditionally served with a wagashi (Japanese sweet) before drinking.

Drinking Matcha Tea

When drinking green tea, you only drink the liquid from the brewed tea leaves. When drinking matcha, you drink the entire leaf without stems and veins. This allows you to receive more nutrients than drinking brewed green tea. Matcha provides you with more antioxidants and amino acids than most antioxidant-rich foods and even green tea.

Conclusion

Matcha has been a significant beverage and part of Japanese culture for centuries. Now that you’ve met Matcha, you can now also enjoy its wonderful taste and countless health benefits.
