3What are herbal blend teas?
Herbal blend tea is blend of various leaves, fruits, roots, spices or flowers belonging to almost any edible and non-tea plant. Herbal teas have gained popularity due to their vibrant flavor, as well as their holistic health benefits.
4Why green tea?
Green tea is made from the unfermented leaves of Camellia sinensis, the same plant that gives us black and oolong teas. All teas from Camellia sinensis supply antioxidants, but because green tea is the least processed, it is said to contain the most antioxidant polyphenols, amino acids, and vitamins (like A, C, and E) which are responsible for its many health benefits. Green tea helps in lowering blood cholesterol, boosting brain function, fighting inflammation and reducing the risk of stroke, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. It is also good for those who wish to knock off a few pounds and maintain ideal body weight.
5Does green tea keep you awake?
Green tea does more than just keep you awake, it can also make you smarter. The key active ingredient is caffeine, which is a known stimulant. ... However, green tea contains more than just caffeine. It also has the amino acid L-theanine, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
6How much caffeine is in green tea?
Amounts vary wildly and there are lots of variables. Caffeine can range from 30mg to 100mg, depending on the type of tea and how long it was infused. Caffeine in green tea is released to the body in a different way than coffee, so you won’t get a caffeine ‘hit’ or ‘jitters’ from tea. You can still get a little buzzed off tea if you drink a lot at once or brew it very strong.
7Does your tea contain caffeine?
Green tea contains less caffeine than coffee and black tea, but enough to produce an effect. It also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which can work synergistically with caffeine to improve brain function. A blended green tea, such as a 50-50 blend of herbs and green tea, typically contains about half the caffeine of its unblended counterpart.
8What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants can help protect cells in your body by neutralizing the damaging effects of molecules called “free radicals.” Vitamin C is most often recognized as having antioxidant qualities. Green tea naturally contains a special type of antioxidant called “flavonoids” that may account for green tea's reported health benefits.
