According to Chinese legend, the history of tea began in 2737 B.C.E. when the Emperor Shen Nong, a skilled ruler and scientist, accidentally discovered tea while boiling water in his garden.
Today, it has become the most consumed plant in the world ( 3 million tons per year ) and its medicinal properties have attracted the interest of many scientists.
We can find many types of tea such as green tea, black tea and white tea which correspond to different drying methods and manufacturing processes.
What is Green Tea?The tea plant comes from the forests of India and China. It is harvested by hand several times a year, spacing the plucking from 4 to 14 days apart, while the tea plant renews itself.
After harvesting, the tea leaves are steamed and dried. Heating cancels enzymes, preventing fermentation and maintaining the green colour of the leaves. After brewing, the green tea has a light, rather yellow colour.
What are the Benefits of Green Tea?Very popular for its weight loss benefits , it is known to help lose weight. It is also very rich in antioxidants, providing a positive impact on skin cells as an anti-ageing agent.
Some studies also show that it may have benefits in preventing cancer and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, drinking too much green tea can also be risky, due to its fluoride and aluminium content.
It also contains:
