Matcha green teas contain a finely ground powder from specially processed tea leaves with astonishing health benefits. Matcha contains antioxidants believed to fight cancer, reduce type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure and guard against heart disease. While caffeine is naturally occurring in matcha, it also contains another substance called l-theanine which offsets any adverse effects and keeps you feeling fresh.
Nettle-based teas are also rich in nutrients, and their reputed health benefits include reducing inflammation and keeping your liver healthy – perfect for anyone embarking on a detox.
Let’s look at how you can harness these benefits in our list of the four best ways to detox with tea.
1. Start your day with a cup of Pukka Clean Matcha Green, the perfect blend to wake you up and get you going. Brew a cup before you head for work, and be lifted by zesty lemons, distinctive dandelion root and fennel. Of course, the special ingredient is matcha. With 100 times as many antioxidants as regular green tea, you can be sure that a cup of this magic brew is the best way to start your day.
2. Set aside time for lunch away from your desk and, even if it’s chilly outside, take a brisk walk or just enjoy the fresh air. A healthy, well-balanced lunch and a mini screen detox means you’re ready for the afternoon. The finishing touch is a cup of Pukka Lean Matcha Green. This versatile brew can be enjoyed hot or as an iced tea - simply infuse for 30 minutes, cool for two hours then add ice and enjoy. Whichever way you drink it, the cinnamon, ginger, fennel and oolong blended with matcha give you a fiery kickstart to the afternoon.
3. As you head into the afternoon, grab a healthy, energy-packed snack such as dried or fresh fruit, and complement it with a cup of Pukka Supreme Matcha Green. Pure matcha powder is combined with Chinese Sencha, Indian Oothu and Vietnamese Suoi Gang to create a supercharged formula for a post-lunch energy boost, while at the same time detoxing and reducing stress.
4. Incorporate Pukka Cleanse into your health and beauty regime at the end of the day. Its main ingredient, nettle leaf, has anti-inflammatory properties and is believed to have a calming effect on skin conditions such as eczema, while extract of aloe vera, known for its skin-calming properties, will give you that sought-after glow. This is the go-to tea for a beauty detox and for treating yourself at the end of the day.
