Green tea originated in China but has become associated with many cultures throughout Asia. Green Tea has more recently become very popular in the West, where black tea has always been the traditional tea consumed.
As with Black and White tea, Green tea comes from the leaves of Camellia sinensis and is subjected to a minimal oxidation process.
Green tea is one of the most popular varieties of tea because of its mildness and its wealth of health benefits. With about half the caffeine of black tea, the leaves are steamed right after harvest, which preserves their natural flavor and antioxidants.
There have been many claims made about the beneficial health effects of green tea consumption. Green tea is claimed to benefit people with cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. It is also a good source of antioxidants.
