Pure & Natural – Green Tea
100% Green Tea
Who fancies a cup of the healthiest natural drink possible? It’s a top choice for anyone who is detoxing, wanting to cut down (but not cut out) caffeine, as well as helping burn fat to lose weight.
It’s all down to its high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC), a polyphenol antioxidant which speeds up our metabolism as well as suppressing hunger – how’s that for a super beneficial duo?! But wait, there’s more to come from this cup of pure joy: it increases the hormone adrenaline, which produces heat. For the body to produce heat it has to burn energy, and of course burning energy will help us lose weight.
There are also ongoing studies to confirm claims about the benefits of drinking green tea to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and even cancer. All this from a hot drink?! The proof is also in the fact that you’ll find green tea as an ingredient in a range of fat burning supplements – we’ve added it to our Slim Naturally supplement, or it’s available as a pure Green Tea supplement.
Just remember our top tip when it comes to Green Tea – it’s a delicate leaf, so if you’ve ever experienced a bitter taste to your green tea, don’t pour the hot water the moment it boils. Use fresh water in the kettle, let the water boil (the bubbles formed help reduce the acidity of the water), and then leave the water in the kettle before pouring directly onto the teabag. The way the water cascades into your mug on top of the tea bag makes a huge difference in the depth and speed of infusion.

How to serve Primal Izmirian Tea:
Our herbal teas are truly Primal. Just like on the Ilse of Ikaria, no chemicals are used during the extraction and preparation process. No nonsense, just pure natural tea. To bring these wonderful herbs alive, use one bag per person, straight into boiling water and infuse for up to 10 minutes. 1 bag per cup. Best served without milk.
Please note, the individual foil sachets for each tea have been sealed a bit too well for our first batch, so please do take care when removing them. We’d advise opening the sachet fully (not just from the top) and then carefully removing the tea bag before starting your herbal tea delight.
