Green Tea

Green tea is more than just a simple beverage. It can be made and consumed at any time of day to lift spirits and improve a bad mood.

My all-time favourite recipe has got to be my desi chai recipe, but this green tea is one that I drink regularly.

There is an Indian-style green tea, known as kahwa. It involves adding some herbs and spices to create a delicious herbal drink that is great for flu and colds.

Like most teas, this green tea recipe is quick and easy to prepare. Green tea is renowned for its numerous health benefits.

It is regarded as one of the healthiest beverages, with so many health benefits that listing them all would be impossible.

Primarily consumed in Asia, it is quickly gaining popularity in the Western world due to its numerous health benefits.

Shannong, a Chinese emperor, is said to have discovered green tea when tea tree leaves fell into his mug of boiled water. Although, I am not too sure how true this origin is.

The presence of polyphenols means that green tea can help to lower the risk of developing certain cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases.

The reason it is becoming increasingly popular is due to its beneficial effect on weight loss. It has been discovered that it increases metabolism and aids in the burning of excess fat. A fantastic addition to any diet for weight loss.

This drink is great for diabetics as well as non-diabetics as it may help to improve insulin sensitivity, which in turn helps to control blood sugar levels.

Green tea can be an acquired taste, as not everyone enjoys the flavour. This recipe, on the other hand, is excellent for providing a foundation for additional flavourings that can make it sweeter.

Honey or lemon are excellent additions to green tea. Both of these are better additions than sugar because they provide a sweeter flavour without turning the tea into an unhealthy, sugary drink.

Personally, I love to drink this green tea at the end of my night to help wind down. It really does help to detox the mind and give a calming and relaxing mood.

A truly wonderful way to incorporate some health benefits into your diet without even trying.
