One of the simplest benefits of green tea is the sheer enjoyment that goes along with a soothing cup of green tea. With its light, delicate flavor and its ability to complement breakfasts, lunch and dinner make this drink a favorite. Green tea can be served with or without sweetener, and is fabulous with honey. In addition to being served hot, green tea is now being served as a cold bottled beverage or as a component of smoothies or frappes. So now, even in the hot summer days, you can enjoy the flavor of green tea.
In addition to enjoyment, another benefit of green tea is the energy factor. Like coffee, green tea has caffeine. While there is less caffeine contained in green tea, the tea is a great way to get you over that late afternoon hump. And the smaller dose of caffeine is actually a benefit of green tea -- while the caffeine is just enough to give you a boost, for many people it does so without creating the jittery, anxious feeling that other caffeinated beverages can cause. So the next time you make your way to the coffee machine in your office, consider instead pouring a hot cup of water and dipping in a bag of green tea.
Essential Health Benefits
Enjoyment and energy are two great benefits of green tea, but perhaps the greatest benefit is the health benefits that are becoming increasingly more associated with drinking green tea. Green tea is chock full of antioxidants, those wild little particles that counterbalance free radicals. Free radicals are produced as a result of our bodies' natural metabolic processes, and can cause damage to our cells. By counterbalancing these free radicals, antioxidants prevent some of this damage. But regardless of which 'E' has you interested in green tea, follow the urge to grab a cup and enjoy.
