A nice article shows the health benefits of black and green tea. Some common elements of both teas protect your heart, boost your brain function, the presence of EGCG in black tea(though not as much as green tea), and beneficial theaflavins in black tea. The article also into some other health benefits too. In the end, it suggests that someone should drink what tea they like best, which I agree. Both are healthy though some different benefits and many similar. There is one drawback to tea for some. It is the caffeine. Caffeine can be beneficial to some and some people cannot have it at all. Yet another great article found by the Specialty Tea Institute.
Green tea is high in polyphenols, especially flavonoids and phenolic acid. The reason polyphenols are good for you is they help reduce cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and neurogenerative diseases. Polyphenols are antioxidants that repair free radical damage and also reduces Type 2 diabetes, inflammation, obesity, and heart disease. This is a well-researched article that I got from the Specialty Tea Institute. The article also goes into other foods that are high in polyphenols too.
This article is for all the men and for ladies who have men in their life, aka pretty much anyone. The article states that 80% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer by the time they are 60 years old. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men. This is a really short article and does not state the percentage of drinking a couple cups of green tea can help reduce prostate cancer, just that it can. I do not doubt it can help with prostate cancer, but was hoping on a percentage of or another nominal amount especially since it states 80 % and 2 cups of green tea a day.
This is an article from the Irish Times. I find it funny how some people I know in the USA who really like Ireland like coffee. I have met some people who are into Ireland in the USA that like tea too, but for some reason, I know more coffee drinkers who are Irish everything, but tea. Just seems interesting is all. According to Statistics Portal Ireland is the second largest drinkers of tea in 2016, with Turkey having the highest consumption. Most information has Ireland either second or third place for tea consumption, so they really are heavy tea drinkers. I mention this because the article starts with if Ireland had a national drink it would be tea.
Oh on to the article, lol. This article is a lighter read talking about some health benefits or green tea. It does a good job. It also mentions that black tea does have health benefits too. I do like that they mention if you are drinking tea for health reasons you should skip the milk. When people think of the Irish drinking tea they probably think of a black tea with milk in it.
A great article to help reduce the effects and lower someone’s chances of getting Parkinson’s Disease. This disease is degenerative, but the progression can be slowed down and maybe prevented if you take some preventative measures like watching your diet, getting more vitamin D3, eat fresh raw vegetables, increase intake of omega-3 fatty acids, drink green tea, and get regular aerobic exercise. The article goes into detail about why each can help.
A decent article about green tea health benefits. Most people know that green tea is good for you and this article focuses on boosting your metabolism and boosting your memory. I know some people say they do not like green tea, but I usually wonder if it is because they have not had a good quality green tea brewed correctly. To really get a good taste of green tea you need a high-quality loose leaf tea. You will also need a good quality spring water that has a balanced ph level, never use boiling water, and steep a couple of minutes (the steeping time varies on the green tea). Bagged tea gets stale quickly and produces a one-dimensional taste to the brew. Never use distilled water because the tea will taste flat and you do not want the water too acidic nor too alkaline. Using boiling water will burn your tea and leaving the tea in usually produces a too astringent tea. Some or of the above mention are reasons why a green tea may not taste good. I got this article from the Specialty Tea Insititute.
This is a good article about something I have read several times. It is stated pretty well with a good graphic. It deals with green and black tea with green tea helping slightly more than black tea though if you really like black tea and dislike green tea continue with black tea. I already really enjoy green tea and drink almost daily so I will continue. I believe part of the reason some people do not like green tea is that they use bagged tea, use boiling water and leave the bag tea until done drinking. A good quality loose leaf green tea with the correct temperature of water and not oversteeped can taste great.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST MATCHA GREEN TEA
How to Make the Best Matcha Green Tea
An interesting article with many great facts though there are a few things off with it. There are competition grade and heritage grade matchas. You can get quality matcha for a little less than stated, but for the most part, it does cost. The last thing is it is good it was mentioned not to use boiling water, but the water should be much lower than boiling and Japanese green teas usually have the lowest temperature anywhere from 125 F to 180 F. Matcha tea is on the middle end with somewhere between 140 to 160 F usually. Otherwise, it does give a very good overview of matcha teas with some really great facts and tips.
This is good for the Chinese farmers and hope it happens for them. White tea continues to be very popular in China, so customers outside of China will have a hard time finding white tea and it may be pricier too. Today is the first day to traditionally harvest tea in China in the higher altitudes and a few weeks later for lower elevations. To read more please click on the link.
