Green and Jasmine tea blend

We recently discovered Jasmine tea, so we decided to create our own blend together with fresh green tea.

Besides being a tasty refreshing beverage, there's some great health benefits too:

- Green tea apparently helps regulate glucose levels slowing the rise of blood sugar after eating. This can prevent high insulin spikes and resulting fat storage.
- Green tea reduces bad cholesterol in the blood and improves the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol.
- Green tea can apparently also help with wrinkles and the signs of aging, This is because of their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Both animal and human studies have demonstrated that green tea applied topically can reduce sun damage.
- Studies suggests that the chemical antioxidant “catechin” in tea can destroy bacteria and viruses that cause throat infections, dental caries and other dental conditions
- Jasmine helps to improve digestion, eliminate toxins and weight loss

Still - we drink it because it's tasty.
