The vast majority of us spend a day at work behind an office desk and for most of us, a mug on that desk would accompany us throughout the day to keep us company (and hydrated). While water would be a very viable default content of your mug, we’re here to let you in on a little secret alternative after all that feasting – green tea.
The benefits of green tea is nothing new, especially to the Chinese and Japanese, who have been reaping its benefits for thousands of years. Apart from super abilities like regulating body temperature and blood sugar, other qualities place it almost in the category of medicine, with its ability to help heal wounds, eliminate indigestion and reduce the risks of cancer.
In recent years, the western world too, has come to realise the prowess of green tea. Nutritionally, unsweetened greentea contains no calories and caffeine content varies with the duration of infusion. In general, a cup contains a quarter of the caffeine compared to that of coffee. Catechins are also prevalent in the beverage.
We really encourage using tea bags or tea leaves instead of drinking bottled, sugared varieties readily available in the market these days. Not only do they contain sugar or artificially sweeteners, chemicals also help to preserve the product to live longer of shelves.
