How to Brew Green tea bags using InstaCuppa’s Thermos Fruit Infuser Bottle
Green tea has been valued for its health benefits since ancient times. Yet, it has only recently gained popularity in the U.S. and Europe. It’s one of the least processed types of tea and packs a hefty nutritional punch. Centuries ago, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners were using it to improve heart function and mental health, reduce bleeding, boost digestion, and heal wounds.
Modern research confirms its healing power. Anthocyanins, flavonoids, and other antioxidants in green promote cardiovascular health and may help prevent heart disease in the long run. Moreover, they reduce inflammation, protect against brain damage, and inhibit tumor growth.
To fully reap these benefits, consume green tea regularly. Drink a cup or two per day, ideally in the morning and early afternoon.
Beware that green tea contains caffeine, which is why it’s not recommended before bedtime. Enjoy it immediately after waking up or during lunch break to beat the dreaded afternoon slump. In fact, this herbal tea is an excellent substitute for coffee! You’ll feel its energizing effects instantly.
