With something as universally healthy as green tea, it can seem like there’s never a bad time to drink it. And, by and large, that’s quite true. But due to the body’s metabolic processes, there are certainly better times to drink it than others.
So if you’re looking to get the maximum healthy, natural benefits, as well as a soothing, tasty treat, then here’s the best time of day to take it.
The caffeine effect
To many people, one of the downsides to drinking tea is the caffeine content. Luckily however, it’s not quite as much as other caffeinated hot drinks. In fact, green tea can have anything from half to a third of the amount of caffeine as your average cup of coffee.
As long as you avoid drinking it just after you’ve woken up and up to an hour before bed, its caffeine content shouldn’t noticeably affect you.
The weight loss effect
Green tea is often used as a healthy weight loss supplement, since it combines with an active diet and lifestyle to boost the body’s metabolism and encourage weight loss.
To get the full effect of this, try enjoying your it after a meal.
When should you not drink green tea?
Apart from when you wake up and before you sleep, the only other major time to avoid drinking green tea is on an empty stomach. Doing this could potentially exacerbate any side effects of drinking caffeine throughout the day – so just make sure you’ve eaten recently before enjoying your mug.
