Green tea is a powerful brew because it is brimming with antioxidants. The Chinese clearly had their finger on the pulse when they started drinking it centuries ago. It is particularly rich in polyphenols, catechins and EGCG, all of which have a host of health benefits.
If you're going to drink one organic herbal tea, make it green. Green tea not only detoxifies the body from free radicals – the nasties that cause chronic disease – but it is also a major fat burner. Along with accelerating weight loss, it blocks cholesterol, stabilises blood pressure, and helps ward off viruses. It is known for boosting energy and the metabolism. However, a cup of green tea contains about 20 grams of caffeine, so limit yourself to 3-4 cups a day.
When applied topically, jasmine green tea is also a beautifying product. It can soothe sunburn, reduce puffy eyes, shrink pores, and add shine to dull or lacklustre hair.
