Concerned about the COVID-19 virus threat? Me too. Although few of us are infected with the coronavirus Covid-19, we are all affected one way or another. Many are uncertain or concerned about what to do and how to behave. One solution? Tea. It is better than non-palatable Kada. I drink lots and lots of tea. And while I know this won’t prevent contracting the coronavirus, just like some of the other half-baked claims floating around on the internet. The leaves of the Camellia sinensis, popularly known as Green tea has been known for centuries to have many health benefits, including longer life and reduced occurrence of some chronic diseases. However, most people drink green tea for its restorative and calming effects.

It would not be incorrect to say that after tea and coffee, green tea is the most widely consumed beverage worldwide. It is popular not only for its weight loss properties but also for the health benefits it provides. It aids digestion, boosts immunity, calms your mind, and is good for your cardiovascular and brain health.

The most important thing to understand is that while green tea is healthier than traditional tea or coffee, it does not mean you can have it throughout the day. Surprisingly, the timing when you choose to drink the beverage may determine if you will have positive or negative side-effects.

To reap maximum health benefits from green tea, it is important to have it at the right time. New research suggests that the best time to drink green tea is in the morning and before physical exercise and Pranayama. Swapping your cup of coffee with green tea is the best way to kick start your day. Green tea contains some amount of caffeine and L-theanine. Both of them together can help to improve your mood and enhance your concentration level, especially in this boring corona time. Of course, you can add some mint leaves, lemon juice, and a teaspoon of honey to your green tea to improve its taste.
