Green Tea has so many positive health benefits… it is my favourite type of tea and comes in so many varieties now a days. Becoming more popular it is now linked to burning fat, raising the metabolism, lowering cholesterol as well as preventing dieses and cancer.
They say that drinking 5 cups of green tea a day helps the body burn an extra 70-80 calories per day and comes as either de-cafe or contains about a quarter of the caffeine content in coffee at worst.
It contains the antioxidant EGCG, this not only inhibits the growth of cancer cells, and it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue, evening containing more antioxidants than fruit and vegetables.
Green tea can be served with lemon for more flavour or as the Koreans do – add honey while drinking it.
You can buy it loose or in tea bags. I always carry green tea bags around with me in my handbag just in case you go out and hit a café that doesn’t sell green tea. I recommend Clipper as you can get an assortment of your choice to reflect your tea drinking mood.
