According to legend a Chinese emperor in the Song dynasty (960-1279AD) used several hundred pots of jasmine to perfume the palace grounds. It was around the same time that the Chinese began to scent their teas by adding blossoms from jasmine, rose, lotus and lychee.
Green tea has been touted a wonder drink, and in its various forms has been clinically proven help with weight loss (including of course other healthy lifestyle changes like exercise). Green tea helps to increase the body’s metabolism, without accelerating their heart rate – which makes it a perfect fat burning aid.
One specific study, conducted at the University Hospital in Tainan, Taiwan, found that green tea is a great thermogenic agent, in other words, it generates heat. In subjects who had been drinking green tea for a long period of time, they detected a 19.6 percent reduction of fat and a 2.1 percent reduction of localized fat in the waist.
Other studies into the health benefits of green tea have shown that green tea inhibits the movement of glucose into fat cells, so less fat is absorbed and glucose levels are regulated. So, green tea not only helps you lose weight, it prevents you from gaining it in the first place.
So how can you use green tea to help loose weight, and what are the benefits of drinking Chateau Rouge jasmine tea. Basically it is recommended to have a cup of Jasmine tea 30 minutes after every meal (wait half an hour after you eat or the tannin in the tea might prevent the absorption of iron).
This will not only help to digest your food, but refresh the pallet and counteract any greasiness in the meal. The Chinese have been doing so for centuries! Jasmine green tea accompanied with a healthy diet and exercise program, is guaranteed to get you into shape for the beach this summer – weather permitting of course! Good luck with your green tea diet plan!
