In 2019, the United Nations combined tea days in several countries into one and decided to observe this day on May 21. This is because the season of tea production begins in May in most of the tea producing countries. This year, we’re raising awareness around the benefits of drinking tea daily for a health-tea body and immuni-tea.

GREEN TEA FACTS!
Did you know? Drinking green tea daily can help:
1. Boost Immunity
Green tea has long been recognized as having powerful antiviral properties. Compared to other types of tea, green tea has the highest concentration of Polyphenols(antioxidants also referred to as flavanols or catechins. Immune boosting properties of green tea are facilitated by these flavanols. They include -epicatechin, -epigallocatechin, -epicatechin-3-gallate, -epigallocatechin-3-gallate(EGCG) and L-theanine which has been shown to increase immune responses.
Green tea has a strong antioxidant substance Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which can neutralize free radicals in the body and help delay aging. Studies have shown that EGCG's antioxidant effect is 10 times stronger than vitamin E, and it is an important substance that helps delay aging.
3. Increases fat burning
Green tea contains theophylline and caffeine, which can activate protein kinase and triglyceride lipase through many functions, reduce the accumulation of fat cells, and thus achieve the effect of weight loss.
4. Protect against radiation and UV rays
Modern people use computers and mobile phones every day, and the amount of radiation exposure is higher than in the past. In addition to the rich vitamin C content in tea, catechins can also resist radiation damage caused by UVB; rich vitamin A can help resist computer radiation and protect eyesight.
5. Prevent tooth decay
Tea contains fluoride, which can inhibit bacteria. Catechin can also inhibit streptococcus and other bacteria. It helps to reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the teeth and stay in the mouth, reducing the chance of tooth decay.
6. Refresh the mind
The polyphenols and catechins in refreshing green tea can help reduce the degradation of brain neurotransmitters such as Dopamine and epinephrine, which can make people quickly regain their spirits. The caffeine in green tea is also refreshing.
