Green tea all the way over here, Guricha to be more exact. Tried a leaf:water ratio from Chip and it turned out excellent.
Today I have the day off, been really busy the last 3 days and havent had much time to brew quality tea. So today I`m gonna drink ungodly amounts of it.
When it comes to tea and health I think tea is first and foremost somethings that helps your immune system in the long run and not some instant curse medicine like drink. There are reports that indicate that green tea can make it harder for viruses to attack our cells, and it has vitamins B and E + lots of anti-oxidants. In Matcha you find a significant amount of chlorophyll which can bind certain toxins and heavy metals in your body and flush them out.
Green tea is also good your teeth, since it contains fluoride.
However, it is no miracle drink and good health effects in the long term should just be viewed as a positive side effect of a very tasty beverage in my opinion
