Tea Time: Yogi Green Tea Super antioxidant! (A tea review)


Monday, September 2, 2013

 I bought two new green tea as I said on my previous blog post. And tonight I will be reviewing about this YOGI green tea that I bought from the healthy options at Robinsons magnolia just last week.
 I bought this for Php259 and it has 16 tea bags inside. Yogi has many sorts of Green tea flavors like Green tea blueberry (slimming), Green tea energy, Green tea Goji berry, Green tea kombucha and decaf, Green tea lemon ginger and lotsa more! but I chose this one because I'm actually looking for a green tea that has antioxidant.. I know all the green tea has antioxidants but this one has super antioxidant. Like it's solely created and mixed with other tea leaves that are rich with antioxidants to create a perfect green tea full of youthfull goodness.. If that makes any sense.. Whatever! The name itself was just a winner for me so I bought this! haha

Green tea has been known for its healing properties, and here are some of  the benefits: via bluesky
1. Heart health: reducing the risk of hearth attack and lowering bad cholesterol.
2. Oral Health: antibacterial properties, gum disease protection, dental plaque prevention
3. Weight control / Fitness: boosts metabolic rate
4. Mental health: alleviates headache, protects against memory loss, improves attention and focus
5. Skin health: prevents skin aging by protecting against inflammation from excessive sun exposure
6. Daily Life: L-theanine (amino acid) in green tea may alleviate stress & anxiety, may protect against pollen allergies
7. Disease Prevention: may prevent and combat Type 2 Diabetes, helps fights rheumatoid arthritis, has been shown to improve bone health
8. Immune Support: boos immunity through Vitamins C & E, may aid in digestion, may protect against respiratory infections.
9. Cancer Prevention: antioxidants fight damaging free radicals, has been shown to slow the growth of tumors

 I love that Yogi has different inspirational quotes on each tea bags.. I was actually quite kilig (blushed) when I read the quote.. "Love is to live for each other.." it made me miss my boyfriend so much.. It's hard..it's hard being in a long distance relationship. Whew! I'm gunna see him soon though. yay go me! :p

Anyways, I brewed mine for about 3 mins... 

Green tea has this tendency to be over powering, so the secret to a really good tea is you must know how to brew it properly. Plus make sure that you don't just pour a newly boiled hot water right away into the cup because the tea bag will expand thus making it difficult for the tea flavors to come out. What you can do is you can just pour the water first then lower the tea bag, or you can use a spoon to expel the air out from the bag gently. What matters most though is you must know your own brewing time, and that should be enough. 

my thoughts about this tea:
I personally like this green tea, although I can taste a bit ginger tea flavor in it and some flowery smelling leaves. My sister didn't like it that much.. but I reminded her that green tea isn't actually supposed to be yummy, after all you're all about the antioxidant and benefits in it right? hence, I think it's hard to actually get a really nice smelling and decent green tea.. I think the best green tea for me would always be my TWG silvermoon tea! but all in all, this yogi green tea super antioxidant is not bad at all. I actually really really like it especially when it's cold.. I put honey on it and pour the tea (while it's hot) into the ice cubes. That's the proper way of making a cold tea by the way.. Preparing the tea via these methods will preserve the taste, aroma, color and health benefits of the tea. :)

You ladies, care to share some of your favorite green tea? x

    2. Good sharing, The most recognized method for measuring a substance’s antioxidant capacity is to test its Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity (ORAC) value. Acai, Maqui and Mangosteen are 3 of the most powerful super berries and fruits with their staggering ORAC levels. I recommended Nn Suprt Berries Plus as ORAC supplementary product. Each bottle of Nn Suprt Berries Plus is guaranteed to have a minimum ORAC value of 37,500. Three batches recently tested by Brunswick Labs in MA reflected astounding high ORAC values of 3,872 per 1 oz serving, which is over 6 times that of pomegranate juice! Read more at:

  17. i've never really been a fan of green tea (i know, I KNOW), but after seeing all those benefits listed out like that, it's kind of dumb not making it part of my daily routine. and i love that the YOGI ones have cute little sayings on the strings- talk about cuteness. thanks for introducing me to this brand :)

  20. Hi,
    Is this beneficial to the skin too? I mean I had clear skin ever since but 2 years ago suddenly zits or pimples started to pop up. It will heal and disappear but still coming back. I was thinking of drinking green tea because I search on the website that green aids in fighting acne. MY acne is not worse YET. but I'm pretty annoyed since I tried different products already but nothing seems to help stabilize my face. BTW where did you buy this tea? Thanks!!
