Last night I was invited down to a lovely tea tasting for T2’s birthday party, in Shoreditch.
T2 stock a huge range of tea’s, beautifully coloured tea pots and accessories. It’s the perfect little spot to browse, and with tea experts readily available, you’re always in good hands.
Green Tea benefits
Green Tea – especially Matcha Green Tea – have a whole host of health benefits.
Widely known for its antioxidants and nutrients, green tea can aid brain function, fat loss and lower the risk of cancer.
Matcha Green tea, in particular has the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea, and 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea. It’s also my ‘go to’ green tea blend, and I always have a little pot in my bag for tea stops on the go.
Go for quality
When choosing your tea, opt for high potency loose tea’s like the ranges found in T2. I’m afraid many supermarket tea bags, are very low in actual green tea. The tea bags are often bleached, which outweighs any health benefits you think you’re gaining.
T2’s expert staff offered expert demonstrations, and we were served green tea infused canapes throughout the evening, which were all delicious!
In fact, I’ve already fallen in love with my new tea cup and saucer from the press goody bag!
