Green Tea

I am a fan of green tea because of two main reasons:
  1. I like the taste. 
  2. Because of the benefits of green tea.
Some of the long list of green tea benefits:

  • Helps burn fat 
  • Protects against heart disease 
  • Can help lower blood pressure 
  • Can help protect against diabetes 
  • Can help prevent food poisoning 
  • Can prevent bad breath 
  • Guards against hepatitis 
  • Can protect against cancer 
  • Can help prevent arthritis 
  • Improves your immunity 
  • Can protect against Alzheimer's disease 
  • Can help fight allergies 
  • Good for the skin
The list can go on and on...

Some of the green tea products that I am taking:

Powder Type
This is purchased from Cosway for around RM35.00 if not mistaken, can't remember exact price. It's powder type 50g per bottle. Origin from Korea. Click Image to enlarge picture.  

The packing, most wording in Korean Language.

The cover can remove.

This green tea powder is very convenient, no need hot water also can. The taste is nice, put too much of it will taste bitter. I found this effective in reducing weight (I am taking this along with herbalife diet plan). 

  • Mix it with vanilla ice cream and instantly get a green tea flavor ice cream.  :D 
  • Add ice cubes for little extra kick to boost metabolism. 
Tea Leaf Type
This is purchased from tea shop, 250g around RM45.00, origin from China.

The packing

I use this mini tea pot to steep the green tea leaf

Press the red button to release the green tea to the bottom after steep the green tea leaf inside the small compartment. Bought the mini tea pot for about RM35.00 during promotion. The taste is more like Chinese green tea flavor, compare to the powder type above tasted more like Japanese Korean green tea. 

Tea Bag Type
NH Detoxlim Natural Cleanx Tea is purchased from Watson around RM24.00 for 20 sachets. 

This is actually not 100% green tea because it is mixed with three other ingredients (Folium Cassia Angustifolia, Folium Nelumbo Nucifera and Herba Mentha Haplocalyx)

Description on the packing: 
Natural Clenx Tea is a natural detox tea made from 100% organic green tea and herbs. It works gently to restore bowel movements and reduce body weight. It helps you to enhance your health in a healthy way and easy way!

The taste is a bit like Chinese medicine tea, not so enjoyable  to drink if too saturated, but I found it effective to reduce weight (I am taking this along with herbalife diet plan).

Signing off for now...
