Health Benefits: Well-known for its incredible medicinal properties, green tea is a truly miraculous beverage. Packed with antioxidants, it can lower the "bad" cholesterol and promote cardiovascular health, improve physical and mental performance, and lower the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Green tea coupled with antibacterial lemongrass may also significantly improve oral health and prevent infections, as well as reduce bloating. Lychee fruit contains high amounts of vitamin C which can contribute to fortifying the immune system, while apricots brim with vitamin A and E, crucial to retaining sharp eyesight. The combined amounts of antioxidants in the Green Goddess blend are bound to eliminate free radicals and thus may help to keep your skin youthful and glowing.
Aromatherapy Benefits: the refreshing scent of lemongrass is widely thought to relieve anxiety. It may also help to fight off migraines and headaches, while the invigorating, citrusy smell brings clarity to your thoughts.
Although obtained from the same plant as other types of teas, green tea does not undergo the same withering and oxidation process as black or oolong varieties, hence its more subtle color. Thanks to that, it may contain much higher amounts of polyphenols (antioxidants) and less caffeine, making an excellent and healthy choice for people sensitive to that stimulant.
The origins of green tea are attributed to China, the cradle of tea traditions and medicinal applications, but the magical drink quickly gained popularity in other countries. One of the famous legends claim that around the year 1190, a Zen priest returned to Japan with tea seeds after having studied Buddhist temples and rituals in China; using his experience, he taught the tea ceremony to his fellow countrymen as a way of connection and meditation.
