Green tea has been around for quite some time … because, say, thousands of years in the history of the human race? Nowadays the Japanese are particularly interested in enjoying their green tea: their whole green tea market is just enough to meet the huge local demand.
There is no need to deny the fact that green tea is healthy. Numerous scientific studies have come up with a ton of health benefits for green tea, from lowering cholesterol levels to preventing cancer.
There are at least three ways to get healthy green tea: through green tea leaves, green tea powder, and green tea pills:
There Are Three Ways To Get Green Tea
Green Tea Leaves
Take a bunch of green tea leaves or stalks, soak them in water, remove the solids and drink the thing behind. There are several techniques such as cutting leaves or using parts of Camellia Sinensis plants, but this is the most common and common way to drink tea.
Now even though the tea is steep and the leaves and stalks are discarded, the health benefits of steep green tea are still widely observed. This is because the scientific studies mentioned earlier were conducted using green tea leaves. Now imagine what would happen if you could drink pure tea, including all the hard things?
Green Tea Powder
Where green tea powder, or matching, comes from. Matching green tea and the highest quality (and most expensive) green tea you can get your hands on. And with all the green tea portions crushed and tossed into the drink, you can expect to get the most bang for your buck in terms of health benefits.
Now before anything else, you need to differentiate between matched and processed green tea powder. The latter is certainly not as healthy as the former. Anything processed like powder crystals goes through a ton of chemicals and preservatives. All of these things certainly do not help to add to the overall health benefits of green tea.
Green Tea Pills
Now things are a bit technical here. Green tea pills claim to spread all the healthy benefits of green tea in one, small package. There is no need for long drinking ceremonies or subtle preparation methods. All you need is your mouth and a pill.
However, if you plan to take it as a dietary supplement, make sure the source of the green tea pill is reliable. When it comes to food supplements, there are always people who fool people into buying fake things. So be careful and draw with reliable sources.
Just remember: whether you choose to drink green tea like an old fashion or pop a few green tea pills for a quick fix, only green tea will get you this far. It will be your lifestyle that ultimately determines whether or not you will stay healthy. Remember this as soon as you sip a cup of tea.
