Top 5 reasons to drink tea

There are many benefits to drinking tea of all varieties, but if you still need convincing, check out the top five reasons to make tea part of your daily ritual.

1. It has less caffeine than coffee
If you’re looking to cut down on caffeine a little, then tea is the answer. While it’s true that some teas (such as green and black) contain caffeine, it’s still far less than your average cup of coffee, which contains around three times the amount of caffeine than a cup of tea.

2. It gives your metabolism a kick-start
Feeling sluggish? Looking to shift a couple of kilos? Green tea has been shown to increase your metabolic rate, so you can burn additional calories throughout the day just by enjoying a few cups of tea. Knowing this, we devised our own 14-day Slim Tea and Boost Tea programs to help you achieve your energy and weight-loss goals.

3. It can give your energy a serious boost
Keen to bounce out of bed and avoid the afternoon slump? A warm, flavoursome cup of tea can help you do just that. Zing ‘Switch On’ Tea uses a unique blend of high quality green tea combined with jasmine flower, ginseng leaf and goji berry for a natural energy boost. The appetite suppressing qualities of tea will also help you resist that 3pm chocolate craving.

4. It contains tons of antioxidants
Tea is packed full of stuff that’s good for you and provides real nutritional benefits. That said, you always want to be sure about what is in your tea and that’s why our range of Health Teas are listed with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), so you can be 100% sure it’s the best possible quality.

5. There is a heap of variety
You’ll never get bored drinking tea. From black, to green, to tea infused with beautiful blossoms and fruit, there is a world of flavour to explore. The Zing Tea range of teas are specially formulated by herbalists and pharmacists to ensure the best possible taste and health benefits.
