Useful teas

Green tea: an effective antioxidant

Green tea comes to us in a teapot from the same bushes as black. But unlike black tea, it is very weakly fermented (that is, in the process of processing the tea leaf is oxidized only a couple of days, and not several weeks).

Due to this, green tea is extremely rich in catechins — very healthy substances that are stored in it better than in black tea.

Including a very valuable compound from the breed of catechins, which is unaesthetic called «epigallocatechin gallate«.

It acts as a very active antioxidant that can prevent cell injury. Therefore, he is promised a great future as an anti-cancer drug. In the meantime, scientists recommend drinking about 5 cups of green tea a day.

In addition, green tea, thanks to this valuable catechin, improves cellular regeneration and helps with recovery after a heart attack.

And finally, green tea is able to speed up the metabolism and fat burning, therefore it is indispensable for those who control their weight.

It is especially pleasant that even allergic people can drink green tea: it contains natural antihistamines and due to this reduces puffiness and inflammation.

Insist: 2-6 minutes
Water temperature: 70-80 degrees
Daily dose: 5 cups

White tea: a drink of youth

White tea is produced only in China and only in limited quantities.

It is made from tender buds and the youngest leaves of a tea bush of certain varieties — for the most expensive types of white tea, only 1-2 upper leaves are used.

But white tea fully justifies its price: since it is subjected to minimal processing, it retains as much as possible all the benefits that nature has endowed with tea leaves.

White tea has a powerful antioxidant effect and prevents the appearance of cancer cells.

It can be a cure for bacterial and viral diseases, so when you have a cold or an intestinal infection, Chinese medicine recommends drinking a kettle of white tea.

It knocks the temperature and stimulates the bowels.

And it contains a lot of nutrients: polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins C, PP and group B — all that is necessary for youth and beauty.

Insist: 5-8 minutes
Water temperature: 60-80 degrees
Daily dose: maximum 16 cups

Black tea: a classic of the genre

Black tea contains a lot of useful substances, but most of all it contains flavonoids — healing substances with an antioxidant effect, which give the tea a characteristic bitter astringent flavor.

They prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases, fight the development of atherosclerosis and prevent cholesterol from oxidizing (and it’s much easier for the body to handle non-oxidized cholesterol).

Black tea flavonoids reduce pressure, strengthen the immune system and promote detoxification of the body.

Therefore, black tea lovers do not need to change their green tea with the detox diet, the main thing is not to add sugar or milk to tea.

Insist: 2-4 minutes
Water temperature: 90 degrees
Daily dose: maximum 8 cups
