Creamy, sweet and nutty in flavour, Green tea is a great detoxifying body cleanser but, if left to steep for too long (or at too high a temperature), will leave an unpleasantly bitter taste in the mouth.
Green tea is renowned for its high antioxidant content – the purer the blend, the more the antioxidants – and is excellent for stimulating blood circulation. The younger the leaves are when picked, the more concentrated the health-enhancing benefits.
Serving suggestion: Fragrant and vibrantly hued, strawberry and lemon green tea is a wonderful palate cleanser. Marry the distinctive flavours of the tea with slices of fresh apple or lemon.
