Gazing at the Teas of the World - Green Tea

Updated on June 19, 2013

Lowers Cholesterol Levels!

I recently started drinking Green tea in place of coffee when I learned about all the extra health benefits it has. The main one I was drawn to is that Green tea helps lower the blood cholesterol levels. I have high cholesterol levels so I decided to give the Green tea a try instead of going on pills to lower my levels. I figured drinking Green tea is a much more healthier and enjoyable way to go about lowering my cholesterol levels.

Preparing Green Tea

The green tea is prepared from steamed, dried leaves, and is not fermented like Black tea is. This process helps to keep the ingredients active that are responsible for the healthy effects. It stays the color green because it doesn't go through the same processes Black tea does. Some of the other health benefits we get from Green tea are: it is good for our circulation, is good for our liver, it is anti-inflammatory, and also detoxifies the blood.

Tea does have Caffeine

Many people don't think tea has caffeine but it does, Green tea has about 8-45mg. of caffeine per a 5oz. cup. It depends how long the tea brews to determine how much caffeine is in it. The longer tea brews the more caffeine it will have.

Assortment of Green Teas

Some of the countries that Green tea is popular are Asian countries such as Japan, India, and China. Green teas such as Sencha are very popular in Japan as well as Boncha which is almost the same as Sencha but it has less caffeine. In the Himalaya Mountains there is a tea called Green Darjeeling this tea is known as a gentle tea for the body. There is a tea called Gunpowder that is from China its leaves when they are rolled up look like buckshot I guess that is where the name came from.

Green Tea has No Calories

Green tea has no calories for those of us who are counting calories there is none to worry about when drinking Green tea. It is good to have a cup of Green tea a day for women that are going through menopause it gives them added nutrients. This would be a good habit to start so why not sit down and enjoy a nice cup of Green tea and its medicinal benefits too!
