The 3rd Tuesday every March is “Tea for Two Tuesday” and for last year’s post, I gushed about my great love of all types of tea.
This year, the third Tuesday also happens to fall on St. Patrick’s Day. So it’s a great day for discussing GREEN tea. Here are some facts about the health benefits of drinking green tea (courtesy of WedMD):
- catechin antioxidants can minimize or reverse cell damage
- improved blood flow and lowering cholesterol (helping with all sorts of heart and artery ailments)
- blood sugar stability (combating diabetes)
Personally, I prefer leaf teas (pearl jasmine or liu an gua pian are my faves) over powders (like matcha).
Finally, there is IMHO no better way to relax than sipping a hot cup when I need to relieve stress.
PS – I still haven’t gotten around to writing that MC who favors tea. LOL
