It’s a new year! What are your resolutions? If they involve things like losing weight, drinking less coffee and/or pop, exploring, learning new things…. Tea just might be your new best friend.
Granted, we here at TeaGschwendner are a little biased, but tea really can help you be amazing and achieve your goals.
Did you know…. The typical American-sized cup of coffee is going to contain around 150mg of caffeine while tea, depending on what kind, will land about 30mg-70mg. However, the caffeine in tea reacts with your body differently than the caffeine in coffee due to an amino acid called L-Theanine. This amino acid helps to produce a calm sense of focus instead of the typical “coffee jitters.” The L-Theanine bonds to the caffeine and gradually releases it into your system supplying you with a slow rise, hours of energy and focus, and a soft denouement. It can help you focus at work or help you get to get your moneys worth out of that new gym membership.
Another great thing about tea? No matter what kind you drink or the specific flavor you like, every cup of tea is going to have less than 5 calories. Plus it has antioxidants and a myriad of other health benefits besides its low calorie count.
We love tea and think everyone else should too. How could you not?
