How Much Green Tea Should You Drink?

  1. Green tea is widely promoted for its healthy properties, and rightly so. It’s a great source of nutrients and antioxidants that have a very powerful effect on the body. The potential to slim down on your waistline, prevent cancer and even improve your brain function are commonly attributed to Green leaf. There are some scientific studies out there that point toward the legitimacy of these claims. In any case, the changes that greener teas such as Green, Oolong and Raw Pu Erh have on our systems are widely aknowledged. I have spoken before about how these teas should be viewed as and treated more like medicine than a benign beverage.

I feel the question needs to be asked, how much of this stuff can we drink? What are the safe limits? Dr Wang is a practitioner of acupuncture and chinese medicine with decades of experience and holds a practice in Leatherhead, Surrey U.K. She advised me that if drunk regularly, greener tea will help to remove fatt deposits of cholesterol with in the blood vessels. This is especially good for older people where build ups of cholesterol is a concern. Unfortunately, greener teas are detoxing in nature which means that as well as stripping fat it can also remove nutrients from your system too (if over used). Dr Wang suggests to drink no more than one litre of greener tea per day to sway any potential adverse effects. She also mentioned that darker teas such as Ripe Pu Erh , Black tea, roasted Oolong and aged pu Erh are much more calming on the body with no undesired effects to note.

  1. What about White Teas?

    1. Do you know what I’m not too sure about white tea? I’m not too sure if it is as intrusive as a green tea actually in terms of TCM! I will need to ask the tea elders….
