Changing lives one sip at a time!

There are so many good reasons for making green tea part of your daily ritual

If we've learnt anything from the past couple of years, it has to be the value of health and wellness to our everyday lives. And while big changes can be great, it's often the small things that make the greatest difference. Even your daily cuppa can have an impact on your body and mind.
Green tea is arguably one of the most famous superfoods out there. It comes from the leaves of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis and has an abundance of antioxidants that can help boost immunity, as well as support the body to cope with emotional stress.
Often referred to as "nature's healing herb", green tea is a good source of L-theanine, an amino acid that helps boost cognitive function and relaxes the mind.
Recently, health researchers have been studying the anti-inflammatory properties of green tea with promising results and there are also successful trials looking at the role tea can play to increase cellular repair. Green tea is made using a steam-dry method, a delicate processing technique contributing to the reason why the product is so rich in natural nutrients.
In short, green tea, which has been used for centuries in Asian medicine, could provide many benefits complementary to a healthy diet and lifestyle, and may be one of the simplest moves you can make for your health.
Taking a "my-time" moment for a cup of tea is one way you can enjoy de-stressing. Time out for even brief periods of less than 10 minutes can provide restorative benefits. If you can make this a daily ritual, it will soon become a healthy habit you can look forward to.
Dilmah, New Zealand's most trusted tea brand, has added a new flavour to its family – Green Tea with Lemon & Lime. Not only will you enjoy a beautiful green tea, which can be served hot or cold, but the addition of the natural citrus flavours also provides an extra layer of taste and enjoyment when you're looking for a refreshing pick-me-up.
Also, back by popular demand is Dilmah's Green Tea with Jasmine Petals. This powerhouse tea blend now contains real jasmine petals, which brings a fragrant aroma and a soft floral flavour to the tea – a cuppa perfect for those quiet moments.
