A few months ago I started drinking green tea after hearing how good it is for you and what the benefits of drinking it are. Since drinking this herbal fruity goodness I’ve generally felt a lot more with it and ready for the day and some of the flavours are unbelievable! So here are the top 10 reasons why I love green tea so god damn much.
- It’s easy to make.
The first reason why I love green tea so much is because of how easy it is to make. You literally grab a mug, grab a tea bag of your choice and just pour in some hot water. Bam you’ve made your cuppa green herbal tea – it’s that simple!
- It’s helps your metabolism.
This means your body burns fat at a faster rate – who doesn’t want that?! If you’re trying to lose weight I’d definitely suggest putting down the coca cola and grabbing yourself a green tea, they taste nice and they’re good for you yay!
- It’s great for your teeth.
Now I was a bit unsure when I first read this fact but apparently the compounds contained in green tea help kill the bacteria in your mouth. This means your teeth will be in better condition – however this doesn’t mean you can stop brushing your teeth hahaha.
- Helps with Cholesterol and Blood Pressure.
Now this is a pretty cool little fact. If you suffer from high cholesterol or high blood pressure, drinking 1-3 cups of green tea a day can help lower them right down.
- It’s Relaxing.
It’s a proven fact that drinking green tea can have a calming effect on your mind. Something called ‘Theanine’ which is an amino acid found in green tea leaves, helps you relax and keep stress at bay – this is a god send when I’m so stressed out I just wanna cry.
- It contains many antioxidants.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants which is great for cleansing your body meaning you can stay healthier and feel super good about yourself a-maz-ingggg!
- There’s so many flavours.
One of the best things about green tea is the endless choice of flavour you can get! My personal favourite at the moment is Mango & Lychee. Next I definitely want to try Cherry Bakewell – thats green tea that taste like cake, wow.
- It’s pretty cheap.
Now I’m not gonna lie you can get some pretty damn expense green tea, but I’m not about that life. Tesco always have a 2 for £3 deal on green tea which is fab because that’s like a months supply of tea for £3.
- It’s good for your skin.
Like most girls I’m obsessed with skin care and will do anything to help my skin look better. Because of the antioxidants within green tea it helps reduce spots and signs of wrinkles. Obviously this isn’t the only product you should use if you suffer from bad skin but it does help a bit.
- It tastes nice.
Obvs one of the main reasons why you like drinking or eating something is because you like the taste. I’m not going to lie and say every flavour of green tea is amazing, because I’ve tried the ginger flavour and it’s gross. To be honest I don’t even like just the plain green tea, but there are some flavours out there that are to die for. Basically what I’m trying to say is it does look kinda gross but don’t knock it till you try it.
So there you have it my top 10 reasons why I love green tea and drink it most days! If you’ve previously tried green tea or drink it regularly like myself, let me know what you like about it!
