[CNY 2021 Edition] Benefits of Tea
Hey there, first of all, here is wishing you an early Happy Chinese New Year! It is yet another year as we welcome 2021 into our arms. How are you spending this very special Chinese New Year with the social gatherings of up to 8 people in Singapore? It is indeed one of the special CNY we will ever spend in our lives, isn’t it? If you haven’t already guessed from the title of this article, we will speak about tea on this special occasion!
If you love tea, you are going to love this! I am going to spill the tea about the benefits of tea with you, that’s right, so you are absolutely in for a treat! Unfortunately, the tea I am talking about here isn’t bubble tea and I am so sorry to break your bubble! The tea that I am going to share with you is none other than unsweetened tea. So, are you ready for what we have installed for you? Here we go!
Benefit #1: Anti-oxidant
Tea contains antioxidants. This helps to prevent the body’s version of rust and thus helps to keep us young and protect us from damage of pollution.
Benefit #2: Heart Health
Tea helps to boost heart health. Consuming them on a regular basis may help to reduce many risk factors such as heart disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity.
Benefit #3: Gut Health
Tea helps to improve gut health. The polyphenols found in tea may help maintain a healthy gut in promoting good bacteria and inhibit the growth of bad bacteria. In addition, they contain antimicrobial properties that kill off harmful substances and improve gut bacteria and immunity by helping to repair the lining of the digestive tract.
Benefit #4: Focus
Tea helps to keep you focused. It contains caffeine and an amino acid known as L-theanine, which helps to improve alertness and focus. L-theanine increases alpha activity in the brain, resulting in relaxation and better focus.
All in all, tea is a great and healthy option if you are looking for an unsweetened beverage and what’s more, it contains less caffeine than coffee or any other energy drinks. When sipping on your afternoon cup of tea, do you prefer to pair it with biscuits or with fruits? I prefer to pair with fruits because fruits just add the refreshing zest to the tea!
🚩 Oh! Remember to avoid drinking tea one hour before and after meals!
I highly recommend Hua Yuan White Tea for you. It can be consumed hot or cold and great for a drink with your family and relatives after your reunion dinner. We have a video on Hua Yuan White Tea and you can catch it from 8:12 min onwards!
Hop on here to get it for your CNY! 🍊🍊
