Green Tea

Green tea consists of leaf of Camellia Sinensis processed with the least possible oxidation. In all Asian cultures, tea typically means green tea but, recently, green tea is becoming more widespread in the West, where black tea traditionally has been preferred. Green tea has also become the raw material for extracts that are used in various beverages, health foods, dietary supplements, and cosmetics. Many varieties of green tea have been cultivated in different regions and countries. These differ quite noticeably due to variable growing conditions, horticulture, production processing, and harvesting time. Over the last few decades, green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits, with some evidence suggesting that regular green tea drinkers may have a lower risk of developing heart disease and certain types of cancer.
