Gaia, with a deep understanding of what people need the most for a healthy lifestyle and overall wellness, offers a wide spectrum of green tea and infusions. Starting from the basic green tea in its original taste, the mint green tea to the hibiscus and chamomile infusions, there is much to explore in the health bandwagon of Gaia.
What is Green Tea?
Green tea falls under the category of teas made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have not gone through the same withering and oxidation process used to make oolong and black teas. A super healthy cup of green tea also comes in a variety of flavours. Not only is one cup a day great for your metabolism and fat loss, but also helps your body stay strong by building immunity and fighting infections. This can be added into your daily routine easily too. A great time to drink a cup of green tea is during tea break. You can also opt for a cup when you’re feeling hungry or are trying to control cravings. Best part is that a cup of green tea can be consumed at any given point of the day.
Is Green tea good for weight loss?
Catechin present in green tea boosts metabolism and also helps in burning fat, which in turn helps you lose weight. Being low in calories, you can easily add it to your daily routine and swap it for other unhealthy drinks like sugar-rich soft drinks.
What does green tea do to your digestive system?
Catechin helps increase the activity of the digestive enzyme called pepsin which helps to absorb nutrients faster than the food you consume. Meaning, green tea effectively helps with digestion and the digestive process.

What does Infusion mean and what are its health benefits?
‘Infusion’ refers to the process of steeping plants or fruits or flowers in hot water. It sounds a lot like making a cup of tea, but an infusion doesn’t come from the traditional tea plant. Simply, it hasn’t got any tea leaves in it.
Since infusions have no ‘tea’, they have zero caffeine and serves as an ideal bedtime drink. Gaia’s range of infusions that are made with flowers like Camomile, Hibiscus, Rose and Moringa have a myriad number of health benefits. It helps calm and relax anxious nerves, helps fight insomnia etc.
