Green tea helping us live a healthier lifestyle

We are all being encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle but many of us find it difficult to make the necessary changes. Instead of making huge changes, it may be best to start of small then work your way up.

One easy way to start living a healthier lifestyle is to increase the amount of green tea that you drink. It has been estimated that 150,000 people suffer from a stroke every year in the UK which is an alarming number. Further studies have been conducted which shows that those who drink 2 cups of green tea a day are 32 per cent more likely to avoid bleeding in the brain or an intracerebral haemorrhage.

Green tea has other benefits as well such as helping us detox which many of us could do with, especially if you have had a heavy weekend! When people talk about the types of green tea, they think that they are all tasteless and boring but they couldn’t be more wrong.

The leading companies on the market, such as teapigs, have a wide range of green teas available all with varying flavours. Green tea with mint, jasmine tea and even popcorn flavour tea are available so you can see that you do not have to just choose the same old plain flavours that can get boring if you are drinking them all day!

If you fancy something naughty but want to leave the snack cupboard alone then popcorn tea is the perfect drink.

Back in the day, green tea was just too expensive for the average Japanese buyer so to make it go further they used to add toasted rice to it! From then, the popcorn tea (or Genmaicha tea as they call it in Japan) has developed and is now a popular choice amongst customers.

Healthy and tasty, can you get a better combination?! As one of the most adventurous green teas on the market it has been well received by the dedicated tea drinkers that we in the UK are.

In case you hadn’t heard the benefits that green tea offers; it can help with weight loss as it increases your metabolism and it also reduces the chances of heart disease because it improves the lining of the blood vessels which in turn makes them able to withstand changes in blood pressure.

There are a wide range of benefits when you drink green tea but many people see a noticeable change in morale and attitude which I’m sure we could all do with, especially on a Monday morning. You can change the types of green tea that you drink to make sure you don’t get bored with one type and you can find the best deals online.

Teapigs, a leading retailer of tea in the UK has spent a considerable amount of time and money researching and tasting various teas so if you want the highest quality tea then visit their website at to the see the complete list of teas that are available.
