Another diet expert, Dr Prajakta Nande, says, “Green tea certainly has properties which are very beneficial for the body. But, one should know the correct way of consuming the green tea. Decoction of green tea is not at all healthy. At a boiling point of water add green tea and boil it for 20 to 30 seconds then cover the vessel after turning off the knob for 2-3 minutes. There are some essential oil contents which are important and evaporate if the vessel is open.”
She further adds that flavoured green tea is also available in the market but if taken with Tulsi leaves and a dash of lemon juice, it will be more helpful in building immunity and reducing stress. “Those having acidity problems can enjoy iced green tea with honey because honey is a healthy replacement of sugar,” she says.
Sneha Fafat, dietitian says, “I shall say black tea and green tea do not have much difference if consumed without sugar. But if asked for best option, it is certainly a green tea. Early morning is the best time for it and also it can be consumed in afternoon. One can replace green tea with a normal cup of tea.”
So those sweating out hard in gyms to shed those extra pounds or those looking for a healthy start to their routine can certainly look forward to a refreshing cup of green tea! So what are you waiting for, grab your green cup now!
