At a glance.
Ceylon tea is a popular drink for tea lovers because of its rich flavor and fragrant aroma.
While there are some differences in terms of taste and antioxidant content, it comes from the same plant as other types of tea and boasts a similar set of nutrients.
Certain types of Ceylon tea have been linked to impressive health benefits — ranging from increased fat burning to better blood sugar control and decreased cholesterol levels.
What is it, really?
Ceylon tea refers to tea produced in the highlands of Sri Lanka — formerly known as Ceylon.
Like other types of tea, it’s made from the dried and processed leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis.
It’s also said to be slightly different in taste. The tea’s notes of citrus and full-bodied taste are due to the unique environmental conditions in which it’s grown.
Ceylon tea is an excellent source of antioxidants — compounds that help counteract oxidative cell damage.
A wealth of studies have suggested that antioxidants may play a central role in health and protect against chronic conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
In particular, Ceylon tea is rich in the antioxidants myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol.
Help weight loss
Ceylon has been shown to help people burn more fat by boosting a specific fat-burning process in the body.
A study in 240 people showed that consuming green tea extract for 12 weeks led to significant fat loss in the areas of the body including the waist, thighs, and hips.
Another study in 6,472 people found that hot tea consumption was associated with lower body fat levels and a slimmer waist circumference.
