HEY GREEN TEA LOVER! MAKE YOUR CHOICE, LOOSE TEA LEAF OR TEA BAG?
With the increase of the occurrence of chronic diseases, there is a renewed desire for women to live healthily. Today, tea is consumed widely than any other beverage in the world except water. Billions of people drink tea, and a large number of studies show tea to have many health benefits. Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and is one of the healthiest beverages you can consume. It’s sugar-free, doesn’t have any calories, and is loaded with antioxidants that provide copious health benefits. Plus, it’s refreshing. You don’t have a reason not to like it!
Some varieties of green tea have additives such as ginseng, lemon and ginger. It has numerous health benefits such as prevention of cardiovascular diseases, helps to manage diabetes, aids digestion, boosts physical performance, prevents infection and more.
The difference between loose tea leaf and tea bags are the aroma, taste and quality. The differences between loose leaf tea and traditional tea bags are numerous, and it goes far beyond the surface. The leaves used in most bags are actually the “dust and fannings” from broken tea leaves. The brand determines the price but boxed tea is also typically cheaper than loose leaf and is easily acquired. However, there is a tradeoff, a cup of tea made from a bag versus a loose leaf blend will not have nearly the same flavour factor and amount of health benefit.
First of all, the most conventional way to buy tea is in tea bags. Since the quantity of tea in the tea bag is predetermined, you only have to remove the bag from the cup of hot water to taste the tea. Many tea lovers choose to consume their tea this way because it’s simple. It is important to remember that tea in bags is not of lower quality, but that it was created in order to make life easier. So when you are in a hurry, it may be faster to choose this option.
Loose leaf tea, commonly called bulk tea, has its own unique characteristics. Enthusiasts of this type of tea say that this alternative ensures the conservation of the natural flavours of the product. Since the leaves are large and complete, they contain more flavour due to their natural oils.
With a tea bag, the antioxidants sometimes get stuck in the bag while loose leaf tea allows you to benefit from a better antioxidant intake.
