    What Are the Ingredients in Earthy Tropical Green Tea?

    Earthy Tropical green tea is more than just a green tea. It is green tea with Roselle that adds citrus and tangy essence while turmeric adds earthiness to each sip of this tea. The ingredients, when combined along with a hint of ginger, creates a soothing green tea for your everyday needs.

    Green Tea- Green tea from Meghalaya is handpicked from the tea gardens that are grown at an elevation of over 6000 feet. The high altitude, a traditional method of cultivation, climate and soil allows the plant to bear more shoots as well as elevating its quality.

    Its chemical composition varies with factors such as climate, season, horticultural practices and position of the leaves on the harvested shoot.

    The most important components are polyphenols-Flavonoids. There are four major flavonoids in green tea- catechins, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and epigallocatechin gallate.

    Epigallocatechin gallate is the most important active component which is maximum in leaf bud and first leaves. The usual concentration of total polyphenols in dried green tea leaves is 8-12%.
    Green tea originated in China, is widely used throughout Asia. It has been used as a medicine from thousands of years from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. Green tea has more health benefits than black tea due to its processing. In black tea, its processing is in such a way that it allows fermentation whereas green tea processing avoids fermentation process which results in retaining maximum antioxidant and polyphenol content.

    Roselle calyces- Roselle is also known as rosella or hibiscus is a plant that is widely found in Meghalaya. It is cultivated for the external portion of its flowers, known as calyces or sepals that are edible. These beautiful ruby-coloured calyces are used locally in beverages, sauces, jellies, chutneys and pickles. Its leaves and stalk are also edible and are used as salads, for seasoning curries or cooked vegetables or meat. Flowers of this plant are also used as a liquid for natural dyes.

    Roselle has also been utilized as a therapeutic plant for decades. Traditionally, it was used for treating toothaches, infections of the urinary tract, cold and even hangovers. The dried calyces contain flavonoids and have a major pigment known as hibiscus in it. It also has a high vitamin C content that brings about some of its health benefits.

    Turmeric slices- LakadongTurmeric is a special variety of turmeric from a place called ‘Lakadong’, in Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. It is known for its medicinal qualities as the curcumin content init is between7to 12.32% (last tested in 2020), which is one of the highest, as against 2 to 3% in most varieties of turmeric. Curcumin in it is responsible for its bright yellowish-orange colour along with its incredible medicinal properties. This component also determines its value. So, the higher the curcumin level the higher the value.

    Ginger- Ginger is one of, the healthiest spices in the world. Renowned for its taste elevating properties and is a must-have in Asian cooking. It is loaded with essential nutrients and bioactive components that have powerful benefits for the body. People have been using ginger for cooking as well as medicines since ancient times.

It provides powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and is a popular home remedy for nausea, stomach disorders and various other health issues.

  • What Are the Health Benefits Earthy Tropical Green Tea?

    Green tea is considered to be one of the healthiest beverages in the world. It is loaded with a whole lot of antioxidants that have sufficient amount health benefits which include fat loss, improves the function of the brain, protects against rare diseases and lowers the risk of heart diseases.

    Here are a few health benefits of Earthy Tropical green tea:

    1. Rich in healthy bioactive compounds- Green tea is not just a hydrating beverage but it is a plant that contains a number of healthy compounds that makes it the healthiest beverage. It is rich in polyphenols which are natural compounds that reduce inflammation. It also contains catechins which are natural antioxidants that help in preventing cell damage. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is one of the catechins present in green tea that is the main component that gives the tea its medicinal properties.  Green tea also possesses small amounts of minerals that are beneficial for your health.
    2. May improve the function of the brain- Green tea helps in boosting the function of the brain as it has active ingredient caffeine, which is known as a stimulant. The caffeine content in it is not so much as coffee but it has enough of it to produce a response. It affects the brain by blocking inhibitory neurotransmitters. It also improves various aspects of the brain function which includes mood, reaction time and memory. Caffeine is not the only compound in green tea that helps in boosting the brain, but it also contains amino acid which increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitters that causes anxiety. It has been reported that drinking green tea makes the energy level stable and produces more productivity.
    3. Helps in burning out fat- It increases the burning of body fat as it boots metabolic rate. The caffeine content in it may also help in improving physical performance by stimulating fatty acids from fat tissues and making them available as energy this further may boost the metabolic rate and increase the burning of body fats.
    4. Rich in antioxidants- Oxidative damage leads to chronic inflammation which further leads to chronic diseases. Antioxidants help in protecting the cells from oxidative damage. Green tea is an excellent source of powerful antioxidants. Studies indicate that people who drink green tea are less prone to develop various types of rare diseases. Roselle honey is rich in antioxidants and its consumption may help in reducing the risk of rare diseases as well as it protects the liver because these natural antioxidants help in boosting the body’s own antioxidant defences.
    5. May protect the brain- Green tea does not only improve the function of the brain but it also protects it from age-related problems. Alzheimer’s disease (continuous decline in thinking) is a common neurodegenerative disorder that is caused by older adults. Another neurodegenerative disorder is Parkinson’s disease (a disorder of the central nervous system that affects the movement which often includes tremors). Studies show that the catechins that are present in green tea have various effects on neurons and lowers the risk of dementia (a condition where there is a decline in memory).
    6. May help prevents type 2 diabetes- In recent years, the rate of people suffering from diabetes are drastically increasing. People suffering from it have elevated blood sugar levels, which is caused due to the inability to produce insulin. Green tea may help in improving insulin sensitivity and reduce the blood sugar level which may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. Curcumin helps in sensitizing insulin and helps in lowering the glucose level. These properties in it may help in dealing with both type1 (do not produce insulin) and type 2 (do not respond to insulin) diabetes.
    7. May help in preventing cardiovascular diseases- Heart diseases and stroke are cardiovascular diseases that lead to death. Green tea has shown to improve some main factors that cause these diseases which include improving the LDL (bad cholesterol levels) and the overall cholesterol levels. It also improves the antioxidant capacity of the blood that helps in protecting the LDL particles from the oxidation process which is also one of the partway towards heart diseases. Therefore, people who drink green tea have a lower risk of cardiovascular disorders. Curcumin may improve the function or health of the thin membrane that covers the inner layer of the heart and blood vessels. This membrane is responsible for regulating blood pressure. When the function of this membrane lowers, it leads to an increased risk of heart diseases. Thus, curcumin as well as gingerol protects the heart against this function and reduces the risk of heart diseases.
    8. May help in losing weight- Green tea helps in boosting the metabolic rate which means that it may help in losing weight. Studies have suggested that green tea may help in reducing body fats, especially in the abdominal area. But regular exercise along with its consumption will help in enhancing this property. Roselle acts by inhibiting the production of amylase which helps in absorbing carbohydrates and starch in the body. By including this honey infusion in your diet, it will prevent the absorption from occurring and thus, helps in weight loss.
    9. May help in reducing anxiety- A cup of green tea may help in reducing symptoms of anxiety-related disorders like generalized anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (unreasonable thoughts and fears that leads to compulsive behaviour) and social anxiety disorder. The presence of caffeine and L-theanine (amino acid) they work together and helps in lowering anxiety and influence other functions of the brain such as memory and attention.
    10. May reduce bad breath- The presence of catechins in green tea helps in oral health as well. It suppresses the growth of bacteria which helps in lowering the risk of various infections. A bacteria Streptococcus mutans is commonly found in the mouth which causes plaque leading to cavities and tooth decay. These catechins may help in inhibiting the growth of these bacteria and hence may help in reducing bad breath.
    11. Helps in indigestion- Chronic indigestion causes pain and discomfort in the upper region of the stomach and it is believed that delayed gastric emptying is the main reason for indigestion. Ginger helps in speeding up emptying of the stomach which is beneficial for those who are suffering from the condition of indigestion. Roselle is known for its tonic and diuretic properties. It thus helps in increasing urination and bowel movements. It acts as a laxative and helps deal with constipation.
    12. Ease a cold or flu- It is often told that ginger, turmeric, helps in recovering from a cold or flu. These ingredients help in protecting the respiratory system. The anti-inflammatory gingerols, shaogals in ginger and the vitamin C content in roselle help in relieving sore throat and also removes viruses and bacteria that cause cold and flu.
