Get To Know Green Tea


 Hello, Green Tea lovers and our Green Tea beginners! Welcome to a full insight on what green tea is all about!

Here's a quick 5-minute read to learn about green tea's potential benefits, uses,  origin, and it's price 🍃

What is Green Tea?

Green tea is exactly what it says. It's the dried green leaf tips of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, without tearing or cutting. As a result, fermentation of the leaf is encouraged; it turns brown and eventually develops bigger.  

The basic flavour of green tea is a leafy taste, as tea, like coffee bushes and cocoa trees, reflects the soil and climate where it is grown. Green tea can be fresh and citrussy, heavy and oily, and most things in between. These days, a variety of green teas with flavourings added are also offered. (1)


Benefits of Green Tea

People have praised the health benefits of green tea for decades and even centuries. Studies suggest that consuming green tea may positively affect skin health, help with weight loss, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, among many other benefits we will discuss further in this blog.

Some research suggests green tea may positively affect weight loss, liver disorders, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and more. However, more evidence is necessary for researchers to definitively prove these health benefits. (2)

Here are some examples of the potential benefits of green tea consumption:

May protect the brain

The beneficial polyphenols of green tea may help slow the damaging effects of ageing on the brain.

May boost metabolism

Research suggests that green tea may contribute to small weight loss in overweight or obese people. This is thought to be due to the natural thermogenic properties provided by caffeine and plant compounds such as catechins.

May support blood sugar control

Studies suggest green tea may improve insulin sensitivity and have a beneficial effect on blood sugar management.

May reduce the risk of heart disease

Research suggests green tea is useful for helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and associated conditions, such as stroke. A way it could help is in its beneficial effects on cholesterol management.

May improve gut health

Plant compounds like polyphenols found in green tea pass unabsorbed to the large intestine where they are broken down by gut bacteria. They provide a source of fuel for the beneficial bacteria that reside in this part of the gut this way, allowing them to thrive, evidently helping to improve gut function and modify the immune system. (3)

How can I take Green tea, and who can take it?

Green tea can be enjoyed hot or cold; most commonly, you can purchase green tea in loose leaf, tea bag, or powdered form. It's widely recognised for its high antioxidant content and health benefits. Green tea has also recently been introduced into baking recipes such as cakes and desserts. 

Green tea consumption is suitable for the general public and athletes. (4)

    This product is for those who want the benefits of green tea along with the caffeine boost but not the jittery aftermath. L-theanine works by cancelling out the caffeine symptoms, creating a more relaxed result than green tea alone. 



What is L-theanine?

Here's a quick look at L-Theanine.. L-Theanine is a non-essential amino acid, as it is produced by our bodies with help from other essential amino acids. It can be obtained through foods, however, in small amounts. This makes Peak Supps L-Theanine Powder an extremely convenient source.

L-Theanine has been shown to effectively cross the blood brain barrier. It is found naturally in green tea and is a popular nootropic. It is often taken with Caffeine for its synergistic effects on cognitive performance. It is also often added to Pre-workout supplements for its focus-enhancing capabilities.
