Other than the fact it tastes amazing!
From better breath to helping the environment, organic tea is full of perks! For example, green tea has long been known for its healing properties. For thousands of years, both China & Japan have enjoyed green tea as a daily beverage staple, whilst also using it as medicine. It has been linked to controlling bleeding, aiding digestion and regulating body temperature - just to name a few!
But of course, there are many benefits to drinking tea, but we listed our top 3 reasons why organic tea should be implemented into our everyday lives. Here ya go:
1. Organic Tea is Cleaner!
Unlike fruits and vegetables, you cannot rinse tea leaves before you brew them, therefore synthetic fertilizers, chemicals and other nasties can make their way into your cup when drinking non-organic tea. Drinking organic tea ensures that you are only putting the best into your body, and making sure you are looking after number one…aka YOU!
2. Organic is Better For The Environment.
For the environmentally conscious people, this point is key. When tea crops are sprayed with synthetic chemicals, these nasties then contaminate waterways and surrounding vegetation. Unfortunately, 98% of sprayed herbicides reach beyond the intended crop, devastating delicate ecosystems. When purchasing organic tea, you know you are contributing to a healthier & happier Mother Earth.
3. Organic Tea Has More Health Benefits.
Organic green tea is touted to be one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. Organic tea, specifically green tea, is rich in phenolic compounds that act as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral. On top of that, the antioxidants contained in organic green tea may protect against cancer, with studies showing that organic green tea drinkers have a lower risk of various types of cancer. Organic green tea also improves brain function, may help lower your risk of chronic diseases and can even help with bad breath!
Long story short, if you want the best for your mind, body and planet, choosing organic tea is the way to go.
