We’re huge advocates of staying hydrated and sometimes we get bored of having water all the time. We don’t talk about it much, but we both love iced tea!
Lara prefers plain iced black tea or iced green tea. Whereas Faith has traveled all over the world tasting teas from a bunch of countries and enjoys a wide variety of teas.
Drinking iced tea is a great way to stay hydrated plus you’ll get some added benefits like antioxidants and polyphenols. A super common drink is iced green tea with lemon.
An easy tea recipe is to add some lemon and strawberry slices to your favorite iced tea. For this tea recipe, we brewed 2 cups of green tea. We let it cool before adding anything else.
This strawberry lemon tea would also taste good if you added ginger!
What are the benefits of drinking lemon tea?
First off by drinking lemon tea or any other tea for that matter you are getting hydrated. So many people are chronically dehydrated and they don’t even know it!
Secondly iced tea, especially green tea is packed with antioxidants which can help neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are caused when you eat things that could cause damage to your body.
Green tea is also high in polyphenols which have many health benefits such as reducing inflammation, improving insulin sensitive, protective against certain cancers, and reducing blood pressure.
What tea is best with lemon?
Green tea is best with lemon, but some people prefer to have black tea with lemon also!
Does lemon tea reduce belly fat?
Lemon tea does not reduce belly fat. You can’t spot reduce fat. Fat loss will occur where ever your body wishes to use it from first. Green tea can increase your metabolism which can help you lose belly fat though!
The best way to lose belly fat is to have a well formulated ketogenic diet and to eat at a caloric deficit. We created a keto meal prep course with 4 weeks of keto meal plans that can help you lose weight!
