Cup Of Life

Posted on: February 5, 2020

Are you ready for the tea on, well . . . tea?  For ages, green tea has been the elixir for good health.  This drink is packed with antioxidants, polyphenols and catechins, which can be life changing.  While I usually opt for a strong coffee as my go-to caffeine drink, the benefits of green tea has me convinced to make the swap.  Not only will you get a boost in energy but since this tea raises your dopamine levels you wont have the caffeine jitters or anxiousness.  From the Paleo diet to Keto diet, there is always a new diet on the market.  Green tea is shown to boost your metabolism so that you burn fat quicker which makes it the perfect companion to healthy eating and working out.  Lipton’s line of Green Tea is quite interesting as there are many options to choose from.  Beyond caffeinated and decaffeinated, there are many flavours to explore.  Some great flavours include, lemon ginseng, blueberry, pomegranate, mint and mango passionfruit acai.  This definitely makes me want to bring green tea into my everyday life and what makes it even better is that they are easily available at Metro.  For the times when you are shopping at Cloverdale and need an energy boost, stop by Starbucks and pick up a Matcha Green Tea Latte for a quick fix.

Drink up.
