Many people have the habit of drinking beverages, whether they go to the supermarket to buy ready-made beverages, or go to the bottle tea shop for a hand-shaken drink. Either way is convenient and the drink is delicious, so the bad habit of one cup a day has started. Among these beverages, there are inevitably some doubts about adding sugar and artificial flavours, therefore, if you drink too much, it may cause health problems.
Combined with not usually drinking enough water and lacking a balance of good diet and exercise is a recipe for obesity over time. Not only will the body become very round, but poor posture will develop and overall, the general health of the body will begin to deteriorate.
If you want to enjoy your drink while taking into account your health, then fruit tea is very suitable for you. Today, let ABoxTik introduce a common fruit tea to you, and also teach you how to make delicious and healthy fruit tea at home. Without further ado, let’s get started with today’s introduction!
The Best Fruit Tea?
What is Fruit Tea?
There are many fruit tea products on the market, but this article will mainly focus on teaching you how to make fruit tea. Homemade fruit tea enables you to control the ingredients and sugar content, hence preventing you from drinking unnatural additives.
Before we start making fruit tea, let’s start by understanding which fruits are suitable for making fruit tea! The following are the benefits and effects that are suitable for making fruit tea!
1. Apple – Fruit Tea
Apple can be said to be one of the most common raw materials for fruit tea, which is high in nutritional value. Numerous studies have shown that apples can reduce the risk of colon, prostate, and lung cancers. Moreover, apples contain a lot of dietary fibre which can make people feel full, and also help gastrointestinal motility, accelerate metabolism, and eliminate body waste.
Vitamin C is very important to the human body, and if you are deficient in vitamin C, you will realise that you start to get injured more and more easily. For example, sometimes the skin is easily bruised even though there is no strong collision, and the blood vessels are unhealthy which can lead to nosebleeds, or the gums will bleed easily when brushing your teeth, etc.
These are all clear signs of vitamin deficiencies, so we can know that vitamin C is a very important nutrient, and one that the human body cannot produce on its own. Therefore, it is necessary to consume more fruits such as apples to supplement vitamin C.
2. Pineapple – Fruit Tea
Pineapple is also a very common fruit used in tea as it has high nutritional value. Pineapples are also rich in dietary fibre and vitamin C, up to five times the amount of apple. If you want to supplement vitamin C, you can use pineapple for fruit tea, or just eat pineapple directly.
In addition to dietary fibre and vitamin C, pineapples are also rich in nutrients such as vitamin B1 and organic acids. Vitamin B1 is an indispensable vitamin for the human body. Its main function is to help the human body digest sugar and starch in food. Eating more pineapples and drinking pineapple tea has many health benefits.
Let me add a little knowledge to share with you. If you think that pineapples are eaten raw and have not been soaked in salt water or hot water, you will feel that your tongue is prickly because bromelain in pineapples will break down proteins, so you will feel prickly.
3. Orange – Fruit Tea
Besides pineapples and apples, oranges are also one of the common ingredients for fruit teas. Although oranges may look small, they actually contain many nutrients such as carbohydrates, dietary fibre, vitamin B, vitamin C, citric acid, and pectin. Vitamin B is a very important function for the human body.
The members of the vitamin B family have a synergistic effect, which can regulate metabolism, promote the growth and division of cells, and maintain general health and skin. Thus, the nutritional value is very high.
The citric acid in oranges can help the gastric acid in the stomach digest some fatty substances and increase appetite; the pectin in oranges can help food pass through the digestive tract faster, allowing lipids and cholesterol to be quickly excreted from the body.
However, I want to remind everyone that although the nutritional value of oranges is high, you should not eat too much at one time, otherwise it will easily cause a burden on the health. At the same time, people with diabetes should also pay attention to the sugar content of oranges.
Give yourself a sense of tranquility. When it is snowing, warm a cup of milk tea, hold a snowflake, listen to the snow falling, and smile innocently.
