At Tea Matters™, tea is much more than an enjoyable drink. There is so much more we want to share with you.
Tea is known to contains a large amount of biologically active substances, such as catechins, antioxidants, essential oils, amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, PPP (Polyphenols, Potassium, Phosphorous), iron, magnesium, calcium etc. Tea also can boost the metabolism, helping to speed up the process of burning fat. It helps you gain muscle and increase your muscle endurance in the process. Increased muscular endurance has many benefits that include reducing the risk of injury, increase in confidence, and increase in physical abilities.
As a tea that is only oxidised minimally, green tea retains many of its nutrients and antioxidants. Among its benefits, it may help support brain
function and fat loss, help reduce the chance of developing heart disease, and offer some protection against cancer. Green tea is touted to be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet with many potential health benefits.
Famous Green Tea: Biluochun, Longjing (Dragon Well).
White teas are very rare and special, only a very small amount of white tea is produced globally. It is comprised of the earliest downy shoots of tea leaves and sometimes the flower bud. White teas are the least processed of all tea types, only 2 steps: withering and drying. White tea is fresh, slightly sweet, and very subtle. Studies have linked white tea and it’s components to a variety of impressive health benefits, including a lower risk of heart disease and cancer, strengthening the immunity and maintaining a healthy weight.
Oolong Tea is one of the most popular Chinese teas. On the oxidation scale oolong ranks somewhere between black and green tea, a lighter, softer flavour than black, and richer in flavour than green tea.
Different styles of oolong tea can vary in flavour. Some oolong can offer sweet and fruity notes with a honey aroma or some can offer woody and thick roasted aromas.
Studies show oolong tea stimulates fat burning and increases the number of calories your body burns by up to 3.4% and reduces cholesterol.
Oolong tea is high in an amino acid called L-theanine, which studies show has cognitive effects like: improved brain activity, better sleep quality, and reduced stress and anxiety.
