Green tea helps protect against heart disease, high blood pressure, liver disease, high cholesterol, and inflammation, and it strengthens the immune system. Drinking green tea is also one of the easiest ways to burn fat. That’s because it contains an abundance of catechins, which increase thermogenesis (calorie burning) and prevent the damaging effects of free radicals on your metabolism. Green tea becomes even more beneficial in matcha form—powdered tea leaves that you can mix with water or add to smoothies, which is one of my favorite ways to consume it. Another great choice is hibiscus, which has been used in Chinese folk medicine to treat high blood pressure and inflammation for centuries. But at the end of the day, you really can’t go wrong with any commercially available organic tea— green, white or black. One caveat is licorice tea. A little is good; a lot causes high blood pressure. According to the National Cancer Institute, herbal teas contain disease-fighting polyphenols that rid our bodies of free radicals and may even prevent cancer.⠀
