The trend of drinking tea has been recently been altered to smoking tea! As a vague idea as it may sound, the global ratio of tea drinkers is declining whereas tea smokers is rising.

Here, we are going to assess whether drinking green tea triumphs or smoking it!

Healthier Way of Taking Tea…. Sipping or Smoking?
According to scientific studies, green tea helps in the reduction of body fat. But the studies yet fail to create a vivid stance on whether smoking tea rather than sipping it is a healthy practice or not.

The herbal ingredient such as Damiana, mugwort and lavender is an antidepressant, relaxant and stimulate vibrant dreams, respectively. Their ‘magic’ effects are known to be maximized when soaked in water and then utilized in everyday life. Similar study lays the foundation of drinking green tea and its enhanced effectiveness. Though it had been proved beyond doubt that the new exciting way of taking in green tea widens the perspective of people, yet in the long run smoking IS injurious to health.
