GO GREEN WITH YOUR TEA!


Go green with your tea

Green tea has been in the spotlight for its number of health benefits. From a weight loss aid to prevention and treatment of cancer, this great beverage has evolved into a medicinal drink that caters to a myriad of illnesses that includes heart problems, cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol levels, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, tooth decay, and many others.

Green tea contains an antioxidant called epigallocatechin-3 gallate (EGCG) which is found to be useful in treating a variety of diseases.


So, what seperates green tea from the normal black tea?

Black tea is obtained by fermenting the tea leaves. The fermentation raises the level of caffeine and tannin in it and also changes its color and flavor in the process.

Whereas, for Green Tea, the tea leaves are dried or slightly steamed but not fermented. This is what makes it look green when it’s brewed.
