Green Tea: Yin Tea
While the temperatures are still high, yin foods should be consumed to help bring down internal heat. Green Tea is yin and should be consumed in spring and summer, while Black Tea is yang and is best consumed when the temperatures chill in autumn and winter.
Green Tea is beneficial for all women, especially those experiencing hot flashes during menopause. Hot flashes indicate your internal heat is too high and needs to be cooled - a cup of Green Tea helps this!
Tea consumed about 30-minutes after a meal is also beneficial for aiding in digestion.
Finally, Green Tea contains a high amount of phenols, or antioxidants which have been scientifically proven to help reduce risk of cancer.
