Tea Time! It's Getting Cold, Benefits of that HOT drink....

Weight-loss : The holiday season is the hardest time for maintaining diet goals. It's the season of indulgences, so every little bit helps. Drinking green tea regularly has been shown to help suppress appetite and increase your metabolism— both of which can help you save or burn a few calories, so enjoy your celebrations, just add a mug of the green stuff ;)

Illness Prevention: All the shopping, traveling, and socializing can bring cold-inducing germs and a weakened immune system, so give yours a boost with green tea. Several studies have shown that green tea has antiviral properties and the antioxidants can help ward off the flu.

Relieve the Stress: Sitting by the fire with a warm beverage can be relaxing, especially when the rest of your day is hectic, but drinking too much caffeine has its downsides. Too much caffeine can lead to anxiety, stress, and trouble sleeping, so rather than taking a coffee break, switch to green tea. Green Tea only contains half the caffiene of a normal cup of coffee. Many people say green tea's fresh, grassy flavor helps them relax.
