    Serve Up a Health Promoting Green Tea and Chicken Soup

    We all know the health-promoting benefits of green tea. And we all know how deliciously yummy chicken soup can be. Here we have an awesome recipe incorporating the best of both worlds!

    Firstly, for those who may have missed it, let us explain a little about the benefits of green tea. Because let’s face it, why the heck would you add green tea to your chicken soup?

    Green tea benefits 101

    Neatly packaged in a brown paper bag, our Bondi Beach Tea Co. Organic Matcha Green Tea is a little treat of goodness.

    Following are some of the interesting, traditional benefits of matcha green tea.

    1. Matcha green tea is an abundant source of antioxidants. Antioxidants seek out and neutralise free radicals in the body. Among a long list, free radicals have been linked with the deterioration of eye health, arthritis, accelerated signs of ageing, and nerve cell damage.
    2. Matcha green tea contains catechins which boast antibiotic properties that may boost the immune system.
    3. Matcha contains L-theanine, which is an amino acid thought to help enhance mood, focus, and relaxation. Studies on L-theanine demonstrate a potential for neuroprotective and cognitive-enhancing properties too.
    4. Matcha leaves undergo a shading process at the end of their growing cycle to boost the levels of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a powerful detoxifier which may help to rid the body of metals and toxins.
