Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Ginger Green Tea is one of the most health-beneficial infusions we stock. It is a Flavoured Green Tea Blend from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and China, to which we add authentic Ginger Root pieces.
The result upon brewing is a zesty delight with grassy undertones. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed.
Does Ginger Green Tea Have Caffeine?
Does Green Ginger Tea have caffeine? In a word, yes. The reason is the Green Tea leaves, which come from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant.
This is one of only around 60 plants to contain caffeine. The average serving will have approximately 30-mg of the stimulating chemical compound. Consider it, then, a gentle start to the morning when Fresh Coffee is, perhaps, too much energy for your liking.
How to Make Ginger Green Tea
1, Add Loose Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.
3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.
4, Infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.
How to Serve: Consider honey or lemon. Alternatively, serve without accompaniments.
Tasting Notes: Embrace grassy notes with zesty, peppery, herbaceous overtones.
Ginger Tea vs Green Tea
Green Tea and Ginger is a match made in heaven. Both ingredients bring a unique element to the beverage, so it’s all but impossible to compare them. The former dates back at least 5,000 years and, according to legend, was discovered by an ancient Chinese Emperor.
The latter, known botanically as Zingiber officinale, became widespread in Asia during the time of Confucius (551-479 BCE).
Ginger Green Tea Benefits
What are the benefits of Green Tea with Ginger? Where do we start? Perhaps most important to note is its abundance in Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This incredible antioxidant, which comes from Green Tea, has an unparalleled ability to combat free radicals in the body. The same is true of gingerols, which, somewhat unsurprisingly, derive from Ginger Tea. But what do they achieve?
Studies suggest that frequent consumption can reduce the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions from cardiovascular disease to type-2 diabetes to even, potentially, cancer.
By combating free radicals, thereby slowing oxidative stress in the body, it also aids digestion and strengthens the immune system. Another benefit, you’ll be pleased to know, is weight loss.
Green Tea and Ginger for Weight Loss
Ginger Green Tea for weight loss functions in a couple of ways. It contains no more than two calories per 8-oz cup, an amount that most would agree is next to nothing. Arguably more remarkable is its capacity to boost the metabolism of fat cells.
This enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, leading to periods of exercise producing better, more noticeable results.
Ginger and Green Tea for Hair
Green Tea and Ginger for hair, too, is an excellent idea. The Herbal Tea part of the blend has potent anti-inflammatory properties. This stimulates the flow of blood to the scalp, which in turn triggers hair follicles to grow.
Its antiseptic properties, meanwhile, serve as a remedy for dandruff when applied topically. These same properties also contribute to healthy, youthful skin.
Is Ginger Green Tea Safe During Pregnancy?
Is Ginger Green Tea good for you if you’re expecting? Moderation appears to be paramount, but yes, you can continue to drink it while pregnant. The benefits of drinking Ginger Green Tea might even help those suffering from nausea while soothing digestion and boosting immunity.
