Red tea is an age-old natural drink used for centuries in oriental ceremonies and rituals, and also as a diuretic and medicinal drink. Red tea is obtained from an ancient plant, which was already used at the beginning of the Han dynasty in China. Thanks to the beneficial effects of red tea discovered at the time, red herbal tea has been, and remains, one of the most valued tea varieties in China. This has also made it one of the most popular teas worldwide.
Red tea properties
Ancestrally, red tea was used in Chinese medicine to help the body eliminate toxins and excesses. This drink was known as the “tea of emperors”. Currently, the properties of red tea continue to help our bodies get rid of toxins naturally, avoiding the retention of liquids or acting as a diuretic drink. In addition, the earthy flavour of red tea and its robust body with stimulating effect make for a perfect alternative to coffee. Containing theine, red tea is one of the preferred drinks to substitute the caffeine in coffee with a similarly stimulating substance but with a healthier and more natural drink. One of the easiest ways to manage to introduce red tea as a substitute for coffee is to prepare red tea with milk. This is because it is much more similar on the palate and also because it can combine the benefits of red tea with those of milk in a single drink.
Does red tea work to lose weight?
Red tea is a natural drink with a high diuretic power that helps to get rid of toxins. In addition, the well-known variety of Pu-Erh red tea (Yunnan, Chinese province) is characterised by being a red tea with a longer fermentation process than the other varieties. This means that fat burning has a greater effect on the body. Although drinking red tea on an empty stomach helps to get rid of fluids and fat, drinking a herbal tea like Pu-Erh tea or red tea 30 minutes after a meal increases its slimming benefits, as well as helping digestion more effectively. Discover the multitude of flavours and aromatic combinations of Pu-Erh tea in Tea Shop’s selection of red tea.
