With Americans consuming upwards of 25 percent of their caloric intake in drinks, healthier beverage choices in our diets are a must in order to help fight obesity, pre-diabetes, and many other avoidable health concerns.
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
The Tea Spot announces today its foray into a new category of loose leaf teas and tea gifts – those intended to assist with weight loss. This extension of The Tea Spot’s line of premium teas falls squarely within the scope of company’s mission of fostering health and wellness by making loose leaf tea an everyday luxury. Maria Uspenski, The Tea Spot’s CEO, stated “One of our primary wellness objectives is to help people find attractive sugar-free and fat-free beverage options. With Americans consuming upwards of 25 percent of their caloric intake in drinks, healthier beverage choices in our diets are a must in order to help fight obesity, pre-diabetes, and many other avoidable health concerns. The time for tea to take its role as a natural and healthy beverage is now.”
For those tea drinkers looking to slim down, whether for health reasons or just to enter the upcoming bikini season with more confidence, certain premium teas are becoming a popular choice. Even wellness gurus on national television are advocating white teas, green teas, oolong teas, pu'erh tea, and blends of these, for daily consumption. Loose green tea and yerba mate are natural appetite suppressants, and have been widely touted for their ability to assist the body in inhibiting the production of fat cells. All caffeinated teas also provide a boost to exercise-induced weight loss, further stimulating the destruction of fat through exercise. The Tea Spot’s most popular loose leaf tea with alpinists, “Climber’s High”, is a blend of premium black, green and white leaf teas, pu’erh tea plus yerba mate and chai spices. It was originally conceived to help with high-altitude adjustment, but has since become one of The Tea Spot’s top selling blends due to its high energy effects and full flavor.
The Tea Spot has several tea gift sets for consumers looking to tea for weight loss.
“Secret of the Skinny” is a set of three of exquisite green and white teas, specially selected to help adopt the habit of drinking fresh loose leaf tea daily so as to help with staying away from calorie-laden beverages and help boost your metabolism. The teas that make up the “Secret of the Skinny” tea gift set are The Tea Spot’s most popular and touted green tea blends: Meditative Mind – an aromatherapeutic blend of green and white teas and green tea jasmine pearls; Boulder Blues – a citrus-like blend of green teas, strawberry and rhubarb flavors; and Thin Mint Green – The Tea Spot’s highest antioxidant signature blend, made of roasted green tea and peppermint.
“Green Tea Cleanse” is collection of four green teas that combines the health benefits of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and antioxidant EGCG to help fight free radicals. Each of the premium greens in this set is unique in flavor, caffeine level, and benefit, to fit one’s antioxidant and energetic needs throughout a cleanse without disturbing sleep. The teas that make up the “Green Tea Cleanse” are Organic Sencha, Genmaicha, Hojicha, and Matcha.
Tea drinking dieters who are looking for a 100% Certified Organic option can go with The Tea Spot’s “Organic Skinny Teas” collection of three loose green teas specially selected for tea drinkers who are looking to suppress their appetite and boost their metabolism.
