A hot cup of tea with mint leaves makes for an instant refreshment to the mind. The smell, flavour and fresh finish on the palette is soothing to the body and soul equally. A stressed hot summers day or a sweaty afternoon, Green Tea with Mint makes for a perfect go-to relaxation and rejuvenation drink. Mint is often synonymous with freshness. A minty green tea is a combination of grassy notes of green tea paired with cool fresh after taste of mint flavour. Green tea with mint, the best part, can be consumed cold & iced or steaming hot. So you don’t have to worry about your tea getting cold, if it does, just add a dash of ice cubes and its still as delightful!
Green Tea is now a widely accepted health potion. With added benefits of mint leaves, the potion gets a notch up in its potency. A minty cup of green tea is perfect to wind you down after a long day of sweat and toil – like a fresh cool breeze. Here are some benefits you will accrue from mint green tea:
1. Antioxidants Supply
A cup of piping hot water with a few tea leaves in it, some sugar and a few drops of milk – doesn’t it sound refreshing like anything else in the world? And now if you replace a cup of piping hot water with a cup of iced water and remove milk (which makes the perfect recipe for iced tea), it sounds equally refreshing, right?
That’s the best part of tea. Whether served hot or cold, it never fails to refresh you with its wonderful soothing aroma, and as we all know, it’s not a matter of today rather a long history, spreading across multiple cultures over the span of thousands of years. And now this culture has become our obsession and more so, it has become a luxury experience with innovative blending and essence that gives a kickass boost to our body and mind.
Having said that, what reminds me is the array of flavoured tea available in the market, which I find much more refreshing and I am sure so you will.
Black lemon tea
Being a tea enthusiast, you can start your day with a cup of black lemon tea. It has an amazing aroma blended with the right amount of tangy flavour that makes my morning bright and healthy. Are you still stuck to the word healthy? Wait I will come to that. Black tea is a calorie free beverage that contains theaflavin antioxidants and thereby, helps to lower the risk of stroke and heart disease. Lemon, on the other hand, being a source of antioxidant, increases the staying power of antioxidants in black tea. Hence, the blend of two offers enormous health benefits to the drinkers.
P.S. Drink black lemon tea without whipped cream and sugar to enjoy its original tangy taste and more health benefits.
Honey lemon tea
The tangy flavour of lemon and sweet taste of honey adds syrupy taste to the tea which is to die for. Owing to antibacterial and natural antioxidant properties, it re-energizes your body and mind and also helps you to combat acute diseases. In fact, honey lemon tea is known for reducing the risk of skin cancer. The combination of both the ingredients (honey and lemon) acts as a body cleanser and removes toxins from the body and thereby, improves digestive system and cures skin disorders.
Green mint tea
Green mint tea is another great combination of green tea and mint leaves. This unique flavour of tea delivers an energizing blend of spearmint and peppermint leaves, balance with the natural flavour of green tea. Containing the right amount of dietary fiber, vitamin and mineral, a daily cup of green tea can boost your immunity and provide you with a lot of anti-oxidants.
So, now is the time to enjoy a cup of pipping hot flavoured tea and refresh your mind and body. Cheers!
