Does hot or cold tea has any difference on fat-fighting properties? And etc. etc. to our happiness, the nutritional experts has all the answers to these questions. Let’s have a look to the answers you may want to know:
1. Does the brand of green tea matter?
Yes! Different green tea brands have different quality and some additional ingredients. But the thing you must be more careful about is, don’t just mess up your healthy drink with sugar or any artificial sweetener.
While buying green tea brand, just make sure it contains a lot of health benefits and don’t go for looking at the vitamins list because green tea isn’t something super rich in vitamins but it contains boost of antioxidants.
2. If I’m not in a “tea mood,” will a green tea extract will help?
Absolutely. Add some green tea extracts in water and have some while running, or during gym sessions etc.
3. What about iced green tea?
Doesn’t make any huge difference because it is same drink, just little colder. Only difference in iced and hot green tea is, iced tea contains water. Green tea has maximum benefits when it is served hot because it enhances the metabolism and fat-burning process. While making green tea, just don’t boil water too much and pour the water over a tea bag and let it steep for 2 minutes before drinking. If you still want to go for the iced one, then freeze this drink instead of adding ice cubes.
4. How about green tea going bad?
Use green tea in first 6 months of buying because the tea bags may lose their antioxidants, if we don’t use the fresh ones.
5. Does flavored green teas have same green tea benefits?
According to the experts, the additional flavour in green tea doesn’t affect its health benefits. You can add flavours like cranberry, pomegranate, lemon or any other flavour for greater taste. Though the flavours are only harmless, if they are natural. Artificial sweeteners and sugars can increase the calorie intake.
