What is Green Tea?
Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves and buds that have not been oxidized by fermentation.
Green tea is made from un-oxidized leaves, while black tea is made from fully oxidized leaves. This results in a sweeter, more grassy flavor for green tea, and a more bitter, astringent flavor for black tea.
Benefits of Green tea:
Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which can protect against cell damage and may reduce the risk of various diseases, such as cancer. Green tea also contains caffeine and other substances that can boost metabolism and enhance fat burning.
Green tea can help to protect the skin from damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays, and may also have anti-aging effects. Green tea extracts have been shown to improve skin elasticity and density, and reduce wrinkles.
Green tea can improve circulation and stimulate hair growth. The antioxidants in green tea can also protect the hair from damage caused by free radicals.
Green tea may help protect against damage to the eyes from ultraviolet (UV) light. The antioxidants in green tea may also help reduce the risk of cataracts and other age-related eye problems.
