Did you know?

Green tea has been around for a long time, yet there are new studies being discovered each day showing its health benefits.

Why is Green tea good for you?

Rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, recent research also found that it contains a compound that breaks up and dissolves the plaque that clogs blood vessels, helping to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

In a recent study from Web Med, it has also been shown to help block the formation of plaques that are linked to Alzheimer’s disease.

In trying out different ways to enjoy my tea, I recently discovered that the addition of cardamom, helps to reduce its bitter taste. The addition of honey or agave is also a great way to enhance its taste.
