We all know the amazing benefits of green tea and why we should replace our daily cup of coffee or milk tea with a hot cup of green tea. People aren’t willing to sacrifice the taste. Let’s not do this! Let’s look at some ways you can make green tea at your home. It’s easy and delicious!
Let’s start by expanding our knowledge on green tea.
What is green tea? And what are its health benefits?
Camellia sinensis tea leaves are used to make green tea. Because of two key components that are unique to green tea, catechins (and theanine), green tea is considered to be healthier than other tea leaves. The National Library of Medicine published a study in 2010 that found green tea catechins can be beneficial for treating metabolic syndromes like obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Green tea can help people lose weight and fight certain diseases. Because it doesn’t contain milk or sugar, green tea is low in calories. Also, the green tea leaves have Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which boosts metabolism and helps you lose fat.
It is much easier to make green tea than chai or coffee, and you will love its flavor after trying this recipe.
Here are some tips to make green tea at your home.
Put a little more water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
When the water has boiled, pour it into a cup. If you don’t have tea bags, add 1 tbsp green tea leaf to the cup.
Cover the cup with a lid, and let the water absorb the nutrients from your tea leaves. Allow it to steep for between 2-5 minutes.
Allow the tea leaves to steep in water for a while.
