3 Reasons You Should Be Drinking Green Tea

Aloycia Woods6 comments

Most people have not yet adapted to the taste of green teas, but the truth is green teas are filled with health benefits and a variety of flavor profiles, that even a non-tea drinker can discover at least one which they can enjoy. However, the main caveat of consuming green tea is the many health benefits in every cup. Being a part of the loose leaf tea community for many years, I have had the joy of introducing many newcomers to the loose leaf tea world. And, while tea consumption is second in the world to drinking water, many have not yet discovered this incredibly healthy beverage. 

The 3 reasons you should drink loose leaf teas...  

  • A study was done with male participants who took 375-milligrams of green tea capsules for 12 weeks daily and found that it significantly reduced the “bad” cholesterol while increasing the absorption of “good” cholesterol.
  • Truth be told, most people don’t drink green tea because they love the taste. They drink it because they read that it helps with weight loss maintenance. When you really understand the benefits of drinking Green tea, you will discover that it's actually considered a “superfood”. Studies have shown that green tea effectively aids in weight loss due to its properties, in addition to a healthy diet.
  • Diabetes is something that our society is plagued with more than ever today. There is some evidence showing that drinking green tea can actually prevent diabetes.

    One study found that Japanese adults who drank more than six cups of green tea a day had a much lower risk (33 percent) of developing type 2 diabetes than those who drank a cup or less a day.

There are many more health benefits to consuming loose leaf teas, too many to mention; this is why Yoteas has embarked on a mission to help individuals 'cultivate, healthy conscious living, one brew, one sip at a time.' If you don't yet know...the loose leaf tea family includes green tea, white, Black, Pu'er, and oolong teas. If you're ready to begin your tea journey, allow the YoTeas family to help you choose.

Having A Relationship With Loose Leaf Tea:

Aloycia Woods2 comments


Consuming loose leaf tea is different for everyone because everyone's reason and relationship with consuming tea vary. Why does it vary? People may begin drinking tea for health reasons, social reasons or they're simply lovers of tea consumption, sometimes it's simply the many varieties and flavors that you can experience, which can be subjective. But, those who are consumers of loose leaf teas are literally hooked on the experience of watching the leafs open as they brew or the various colors and aromas within each brew depending on the particular tea blend. Let's face it, when we brew loose leaf teas, it's environmentally healthier for the tea consumer versus it's less flavorful neighbor tea bags.

However, what makes the loose leaf tea relationship and experience so special is it's health benefits, the ability to steep each brew more than once, and the endless flavor and blend options. Whether you prefer having a relationship with the flavors of black teas, a smooth, earthy green, or maybe a flavorful blend of various herbs, you'll receive a lot of the same benefits and appreciate every sip. Here's the deal, even though loose leaf tea leaves may all contain different levels of caffeine, what many don't know is, they also contain an amino acid called L-Theanine, which research has shown promotes and has a positive impact on our overall ability to remain relaxed and calm. Visit Us And Browse Our Selections

Tea Benefits You Should Know About:

Aloycia Woods

Penn Medicine wrote that people all over the world have been drinking tea for thousands of centuries, and for good reason. I hope you enjoy the article. Numerous studies have shown that a variety of teas may boost your immune system, fight off inflammation, and even ward off cancer and heart disease.

While some brews provide more health advantages than others, there’s plenty of evidence that regularly drinking tea can have a lasting impact on your wellness. 

White Tea

Known to have a delicate flavor, white tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant that’s native to China and India. It is also the least processed tea variety.

Research shows it may be the most effective tea in fighting various forms of cancer thanks to its high level of antioxidants. White tea may also be good for your teeth since it contains a high source of fluoride, catechins, and tannins that can strengthen teeth, fight plaque, and make it more resistant to acid and sugar.

This variety also offers the least amount of caffeine, making it a smart choice for tea drinkers who want to avoid or limit their caffeine consumption.

Herbal Tea

Herbal teas, sometimes called tisanes, are very similar to white teas, but they contain a blend of herbs, spices, fruits, or other plants in addition to tea leaves. Herbal teas don’t contain caffeine, which is why they’re known for their calming properties.

There are numerous types of herbal teas, all with their unique benefits. Some of the most popular herbal teas include:

  • Chamomile tea – Helps to reduce menstrual pain and muscle spasms, improves sleep and relaxation and reduces stress
  • Rooibos – Improves blood pressure and circulation, boosts good cholesterol while lowering bad cholesterol, keeps hair strong and skin healthy, and provides relief from allergies
  • Peppermint – Contains menthol, which can soothe an upset stomach and serve as a cure for constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and motion sickness. This tea variety also offers pain relief from tension headaches and migraines.
  • Ginger – Helps to fight against morning sickness, can be used to treat chronic indigestion and helps to relieve joint pain caused by osteoarthritis
  • Hibiscus – Lowers blood pressure and fat levels, improves overall liver health, can starve off cravings for unhealthy sweets, and may prevent the formation of kidney stones

Green Tea

Green tea originates from China, where the leaves are processed with heat using a pan-firing or roasting method and Japan, where the leaves are more commonly steamed.

Green tea is exceptionally high in flavonoids that can help boost your heart health by lowering bad cholesterol and reducing blood clotting. Studies show this type of tea can also help lower blood pressure, triglycerides, and total cholesterol.

Other research has found that green tea has a possible impact on liver, breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers. This tea variety has also shown to be anti-inflammatory, which helps keep your skin clear and glowing.

In recent years, matcha – a form of green tea – has grown in popularity. Matcha is a very fine, high-quality green tea powder made from the entire leaves of tea bushes grown in the shade. Since it is the only form of tea in which the leaves are ingested, matcha contains even more antioxidants than regular green tea. In fact, some have suggested that one cup of matcha is the equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea.

Black Tea

Black tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, the same plant that’s used to make green tea. However, the leaves are dried and fermented, giving black tea a darker color and richer flavor.

Unlike many other varieties, black tea is caffeinated, so it’s important to monitor your intake. When you do pour yourself a cup of black tea, you benefit from flavonoids that combat inflammation and support healthy immune function.

However, you don’t have to merely drink black tea to benefit from its healthy properties. It can be steamed, cooled, and then pressed on minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises to relieve pain and reduce swelling. A black tea bath can also ease inflammation caused by skin rashes and conditions such as poison ivy.

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea variety that’s made from the same plant used to make green and black teas. The difference is how the tea is processed: Green tea is not allowed to oxidize much, but black tea is allowed to oxidize until it turns black. Oolong tea is somewhere in between the two, so it is partially oxidized. This partial oxidation is responsible for oolong tea's color and characteristic taste.

Oolong tea is notable for containing l-theanine, an amino acid that reduces anxiety and increases alertness and attention. Scientists have found that l-theanine can help prevent cognitive diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Oolong tea is also high in polyphenols, which are linked to lowering inflammation, preventing the growth of cancers, and decreasing type 2 diabetes risk. The list of tea benefits is endless and we invite you to incorporate loose leaf teas and experience the many benefits that consuming teas offers.
