Let's Talk (Green) Tea

Okay so I'm gonna get straight to the point, I'm obsessed with herbal teas - green tea to be precise (hence my blogs name) yet I feel so many people shy away from green tea after trying it just once, or even just after looking at the slightly green colour. 


In all honesty, the first time I tried green tea I gagged trying to keep down one sip (TMI I know). So my grandma suggested that I try this 'Moroccan mint green tea' from a tea brand called 'dragonfly'; the taste was a lot softer you could say, in other words, it was just easier to drink. After drinking this for a couple weeks my taste buds adjusted to the taste of green tea so I was then able to drink normal green tea. 



So a tip: if you don't like normal green tea straight away, don't forget about it completely, try a mint green tea to help your taste buds adjust. 

The reason I was so adamant to like green tea was because the health benefits of the herbal tea are just endless

For starters, green tea acts as a natural metabolism booster and has been shown to increase the fat burning rate. Which should automatically draw your attention! 

Green tea is oozing with antitoxins (which I know doesn't sound like a good thing but trust me antitoxins = good sign) one of its strongest antitoxins - EGCG - is said to help kill cancer cells, inhibit the absorption of cholesterol from the large intestine and reduce allergies as it can block the key receptor involved in an allergic reaction. Impressive, I know. 


Tempted yet?

My favourite brand for green teas is 'clipper teas' (yes, I do have a favourite tea brand) as they have SO many options. Some of my favourites are their 'mint green tea', 'jasmine decaf green tea' and their 'pear & honey green tea' - I'm pretty sure I've even raved about these teas in some of my favourites blog posts... I'm a true devoted fan, haha.


So are you now running out the door to go and stock up on green teas?? You're not ?? What about if I told you green tea is also supposed to help with old age... Yep there you go, haha. 

But seriously the health benefits to green tea are just so worth the first few cups of bitter taste, just until you get used to the taste and then start to enjoy it like did.
