{TEA = Superb Fat Fighter}

Already in a previous post I did write about a USEFUL TEA REGIME FOR A SLIMMER YOU. See link below. It is a fact that TEA does have lots of ANTIOXIDANTS that are very beneficial for our health. Drinking tea may help prevent chronic illnesses according to a USA Today article. 13 Reasons Tea is Good for You is another great article. Number 1. is about the antioxidants in green tea with an ability to burn fat as fuel. 
This is Dutch Mango Tea from Douwe Egberts Pickwick. 
I used my Japanese Kyusu teapot, a gift from my 2007 trip to Japan as a chaperone with 6 teenagers.
The round wooden tray  was another gift from my host family.
The table runner is also from Japan.
The silver rose spoon is one of my favorites and it would be a great addition to +Silber-und-Rosen-Shop or for the book: Rosen-Bestecke by this specialty shop's owner Johanna, as the author.
In the back you see the book Tea with a Twist by +Lisa Boalt Richardson who is also from Georgia.
The teacup is Japanese, husband Pieter did bring it home from an antique shop in London.
Dear friend Celia from +Celia M. High Heeled Life wrote some excellent posts about taking out time for an afternoon tea. Just check her Google+ page and scroll down to her delightful posts about it.
9 Reasons to Drink Green Tea Daily with number 1. stating it is a SUPERB FAT FIGHTER.
number 2. stating it TARGETS BELLY FAT!
10 Life-Sustaining Reasons to Drink Green Tea with slide number 4 showing that Green Tea helps to 
manage weight. 
Green Tea could be among the superfoods you want to include for our diet!
Slide number 6 shows that Green Tea Boosts Oral Health.
My dental hygienist noticed last week that my tartar build up was a lot less. 
That adds up to another bonus.
Do you have any experience with some of the above mentioned pluses of Tea and/or Green Tea?

      We drink hot green tea and others year round and of course lots of water too, but not ice water... Guess for that you have to be born in the USA.

  2. I drink hot Green tea all day long...maybe 8 glasses, or mugs and I do keep on my slim side; it's supposed to burn fat, who knows, but it works for me!

  3. I drink green tea after lunch at work. Feels like the tea cleanses my body, really! If I remember correctly, antioxidant Catechin works great for cleaning cutting board. You rub used green tea leaves on the cutting board and rinse it. I think it is good way to recycle used tea leaves :-)

    Replies
    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Sure, you stay true to your culture and get all its health benefits. Looking up the working for cleaning, it does not actually sanitize the cutting board when using used green tea leaves. However it does deodorize a cutting board and other things like litter boxes. You can read about that at the very bottom here: http://www.moondragon.org/health/nutritionbasics/antioxidants/greentea.html
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

    2. Oh thank you for your info! I did not remember correctly, haha. You are right, it helps deodorize, like fish smell on cutting board.
      I forgot to mention earlier, but I love your beautiful kyusu :-)

      Yeah, those dark chocolate (healthy too!) covered pomegranates I bought two bags at Costco on Wednesday... I make sure it doesn't happen again that I'm out of my 'dope'... Ha-ha, it is addictive. Funny, my Dad loved dark chocolate and I have loved my entire life dark chocolate as well.

  12. Lieve Mariette,

    Las al vaker berichten over het gunstige effect van groene thee op het menselijk lichaam,
    maar toch ben ik daar niet zó mee bezig tijdens het zetten en drinken van mijn thee.

    Heb dat idee van gezond bezig zijn meer tijdens het wassen ,bereiden en eten van sla en verse groenten en zomerfruit wat nu volop te koop is.

    Je foto met thee ritueel ziet er weer aantrekkelijk uit!!!

    Kocht jaren geleden op een rommelmarkt voor 'n paar cent een theepot(je)van Yixing klei,dit is een kleisoort afkomstig uit Yixing, China. Deze kleisoort, vergelijkbaar met de Nederlandse rivierklei,is omwille van zijn uitstekende warmte en aromabehoud uitermate geschikt voor theepotten.

    Wij houden ramen en deuren in de middaguren gesloten en weg gaan om de koelte op te zoeken kunnen we voorlopig wel vergeten.
    Ach..... we laten de kop niet hangen..... nemen nog 'n kopje thee,houden elkaar gezelschap en wachten op medische behandeling en op betere tijden.

    Fijne dag en lieve groet!!!
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, gezond leven gaat inderdaad vérder dan het drinken van thee! In het verre oosten hebben ze goeie dingen voor het thee ceremonieel, hun cultuur is er veel meer op gericht.
      Jammer dat jullie niet zo lekker zitten en op medische behandeling wachten. Ik wens jullie beiden heel veel sterkte en dat het gauw een keer verbeterd. Ja, dan mis je wel een huis met air-conditioning. Alleen al het ontvochten van de lucht is een zégen. Wij zetten het nooit kouder dan 25°C in de zomer maar genieten van de gezonde ontvochte lucht. Dit is een belangrijke werking van de air-conditioning unit en het geeft je zo een fijn en gezond leefklimaat. Althans bínnen. Buiten is het transpireren tot en met maar dan geniet je van je douche.
      Liefs,

      Oh, when we lived in Italy we were addicted to cappuccinos and espressos... They did help me through my study and my work for doing training and classes in Italian. But we did kick-off somewhat and now only coffee in the morning for me. Tea is very healthy indeed and as we age, we must pay more attention to the health factors.

  14. Your teas setting is lovely. It look like it's a part of a serene ritual.
    I drink tea day round-year round. All the reasons above are good ones for drinking tea, but the best reason is that is simply tastes so good. I drink it hot (year round) cold (cold green tea by itself is an excellent thirst quencher) with milk (in the morning) I even make a frozen chai latte with almond milk that is like an ice cream treat.

    Naturally, as a Japanese I drink tea everyday. Maybe 3 cups (or yunomi-cup) a day. Just avoiding to have it at least a few hours before going to bed. I'm not sure if coffee has more caffeine than green tea. Coffee prevents me from sleeping, constitutional thing p;)
    Japanese Kyusu teapot and wooden tray are wonderful♡♡♡ And I appreciate you treasuring them, my friend. Thank you very much for sharing the healthy benefits they have♬♬♬

  16. eine tolle Info, liebe Mariette

    habe ich richtig gelesen: 85 % der US-Bürger trinken schwarzen Tee...

    auch wir Ostfriesen trinken sehr viel Tee, am liebsten schwarz... und meine Großmutter ist dabei 99 Jahre alt geworden...

    Bei dieser großen Hitze aber auch sehr gerne Blüten- und Kräutertee.

  22. Hello Mariette, Taiwan is the home of much superb green and oolong tea. I have tasted many kinds from my friends who own a tea farm and shop. Still, I find it hard to break my morning habit of coffee, and usually later in the day I want water--iced, American-style.

      You certainly are living right in the cradle where superb green and oolong tea have been born. Funny how one can adhere to cultural customs. We never got used to iced water for the same cultural customs we were brought up with. One might give it a second thought, in regard to the many health benefits!
