Brewing tea is the first thing which we love to do in the morning irrespective of our age. It gives the kickstart which we need to carry out the daily work. And if it becomes beneficial for our health then it is like a blessing in disguise.
Green tea tops the list in tea variety due to its added health benefits, but if I say that there is another tea, which is slighter better than green tea than you may be surprised.
We are talking about decaf green tea, a variety of green tea, which is free from caffeine up to some extent. There are three methods to extract the caffeine: using organic chemical solvents (methylene chloride or ethyl acetate), carbon dioxide or the water method (also known as the Swiss Water method). Since ethyl acetate is derived from fruit, tea de-caffeinated via this solvent is sometimes described as “natural” decaf. Some tea processors use different methods for their various products. Unsweetened de-caffeinated teas contain only nominal amounts of calories, so moderate consumption may aid in weight loss as well as weight management efforts. De-Caffeinated help prevents atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, a disorder that may lead to heart attack or stroke. They also help reduce blood cholesterol levels, lowering the risk of heart attack by 11 per cent with consumption of 3 cups of tea daily, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. In addition, green tea raises blood levels of high-density lipoprotein, or good cholesterol, also helping you avoid heart disease. Polyphenols in tea may also block uptake of some of the cholesterol you consume with food, lessening the rise in blood cholesterol that can follow a fat-containing meal.
A cup of a decaffeinated green tea is all that we crave for early in the morning
