Coffee?… Why not Tea?

Being a college student, coffee is always a big deal. Walking around campus, you are guaranteed to find a handful of student holding coffee cups. I’ve never been a real coffee person and when I had some, it was always something super milky and sweet from Starbucks. Coffee would sometimes make my stomach hurt and never settled easy for me. I never felt good about my body after drinking a cup. I could also only drink one cup at a time. Caffeine is essential in college, especially for my late night studying and boring 8 am classes so I needed to find a better solution. Ever since last year, I have started drinking tea. Mainly green tea. I did a lot of research and decided to use sweet herbal teas sparingly and stick to real tea (green, oolong, black and white). I love them and started to obsess over them. the more I read about drinking tea, the better I felt about myself. The high amount of antioxidants and many other health benefits made me want to drink several cups a day, even in one sitting. This past summer, my best friend Maggie mentioned matcha. I researched about it and found that it was the purest form of green tea you can drink. It is green tea leaves ground up into a very fine powder. You are literally drinking the tea leaves and the benefits were significantly higher. However, matcha didn’t taste as good as just green tea but I wanted the benefits. I thankfully found my favorite drink; Sencha Matcha green tea blend. I got the best of both worlds as I was drinking some matcha but it also had regular tea leaves with made the taste so much easier.

Seeing how much I loved the benefits of green tea, my mother told me about this amazing supplement. For the days that I don’t have the time to drink tea, I could take the Tegreen 97 supplement. The main antioxidant found in green tea is called Catechins. It supports healthy cell function while providing antioxidant protection to critical cell structures such as DNA highly concentrated extract of the catechins found in green tea. One Tegreen 97 capsule contains approximately seven cups of green tea worth of catechins. I normally try to both drink green tea and take the supplement. It has helped me maintain my weight and gives be the energy to go on with my school day.

The sencha matcha blend can be found in any Costco for a reasonable price. The box is pictured above. If you are interested in the Tegreen 97 supplement, please contact me or visit
