    In the absence of proper food habits and suppressing hunger by drinking tea,affects health and affects intake gradually. Excess tea drinking causes stomach disturbances like acidity.

  • Hi, we know that green tea is getting popular for its medicinal properties. Both green tea and black tea come from the tea plant called Camellia sinensis.

    The difference of geen tea and black tea comes from the processing method of the tea leaves. You can get green tea just after the leaves are picked, steamed and dried immediately, where in case of black tea it under goes some natural enzyme action which changes the leaves to black.

    Important difference in green and black tea is caffeine content, a cup of black tea contains 10-50mg of caffeine but 1 cup of green tea contains 30-50mg of caffeine.

    You have asked about black tea so we move on that, the recommended intake of black tea per day is three cups. If you see the advantages, reduce athma problem, presence of tannins in black tea reduce diarrhea, research conducted by American Heart Association in New Orleans black tea reduce the risk for heart problems.

    If you consume more than the recommended quantity, the excess caffeine cause mild headache, stress, sleeplessness, nausea, irritation, irregular heart rhythm etc.

  • Tea (black, dark, white, green or black) is sourced from the same variety of plant. However, it is the processing, ingredients added, and preparation that makes the difference. If the leaves are made to dry for a longer time and fermented, it will result in Black Tea and if they are made to dry, it is called Green Tea. There are different added elements like ginger, tulsi, and chamomile to bring in different flavors to it. Green Tea contains more antioxidants when compared to black tea. But after a long day of hard work, black tea would be more refreshing due to the caffeine (remember caffeine taken in limited quantities has a soothing effect and it is not advisable in large quantities). Tea is one of the best refreshing drinks that can be taken at any time of the day. Have Green tea in the morning to liven up your day with energy and boost your immunity. Have a cup of Black tea when you working hard in office to keep you active and stress-free. Consider Chamomile tea after you finish your work to relax and repair your body. Try Ginger or Tulsi tea when you have the flu (common cold) for relief. Avoid adding milk and sugar when you take it, keep it light, to cut calories and lose weight.
