“Green tea has a resume other beverages would kill for” – Women’s Health Magazine, June 2007
The Chinese have known about the benefits of tea drinking since ancient times, even using it to treat health issues, so we at Steeped Tea are about to give you the low down on everything green!
In addition to its distinctly refreshing taste, green tea has been known to help with weight loss. Green tea is filled with rich catechins like EGCG which may reduce fat absorption, increase our energy, and increase the utilization of fat. Studies have shown green tea also contains caffeine which works with EGCG to combat our weight problems at a much faster rate by shifting our fat fighting metabolism into high gear! But according to the great and all powerful Dr. Oz, we have to drink at least three cups of green tea a day to see changes in our weight. (Try our Mmm…Mojito green tea. Tastes great hot or chilled with sugar syrup, mint, lime and rum. Code : 4201, 4202.) Tea drinking is also one of the smartest and least expensive ways to lose weight! Just as long as you’re not adding cream or sugar! ;)
Along with weight loss, Green Tea has also been known to reduce inflammations in the body and protect against things like,
- Heart disease
- And much more
But wait! It totally gets better. Along with Green Tea’s super powers, it also has a secret weapon that you can add that may turn you into a cancer fighting and fat burning machine! And as our title suggests, it’s all about the Matcha!
Matcha tea’s benefits exceed those of Green Tea because when you drink matcha tea, you are consuming the entire leaf, and not just the steeped water! Which is why Matcha is offered at Steeped Tea in powdered form! (Matcha Powder, Code: 4041, 4042.) Matcha green tea is great because ¼ – ½ teaspoon of matcha is equal to approximately 8-10 cups of regular tea in terms of antioxidants. I know, right! And for those who don’t think they can manage drinking the recommended dose of Green Tea and Matcha Tea a day, try out some of Steeped Tea’s awesome recipes!
So just in time for summer, turn that body of yours into the super hero it was intended to be! With Green Tea and Matcha at your side, you’ll be able to overcome any villain that comes your way!
