Best Green Teas You Can Try for Your Weight Control

Green tea has gradually become to western beverage consumers what it has been in Asia for hundreds of years: A healthy and low-caffeine alternative to black tea or coffee, it is rich in polyphenols, natural antioxidants and other benevolent minerals. ‘Healthy’ doesn’t do green tea justice: it’s known to improve brain function, weight loss, and may help fight certain cancers, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Try to buy the best quality tea you can get. Cheaper variants in supermarkets will often have certain amounts of chlorine, or bleached teabags, but the better sencha variants are made from better quality leaves. Here are some good ones.

Buddha Teas Organic Sencha Green Tea

A great introduction to sencha, this organic tea has bleach-free bags and you’ll notice the smoother, fresher taste because of it. Why is sencha better for you? Allowed to grow in the sunlight (which means it’s high in antioxidants), sencha is usually cut from the first or second harvest and is not allowed to oxygenate and dry like black teas are. If you’re new to green tea and doubt there’s a difference, just try it. 

Numi Organic Ginger Lemon Decaf Green Tea

There are lots of varieties of green tea available, with flavours that are frequently concocted for Western consumers, perhaps in an attempt to get rid of some of green tea’s bitterness. Numi Organic is one of the best variants, with ginger root and lemon grass you’ll be able to savour its aromatic flavours, safe in the knowledge you’re being kind to your body too.
