When tea leaves are immediately dried and fermentation is prevented, the tea leaves retain the distinctive colours, flavours and health benefits we know as green tea.
TO YOUR HEALTH. Green tea is increasingly recognized for its health benefits as well as its taste. It contains polyphenols, a class of phytochemicals that have been associated with the prevention of heart disease and cancer. In addition, tannins and catechins can provide in a single cup of green tea more antioxidant activity than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries. Flavonoids – the bright green colour – may protect against infection and theanine provides a tranquilizing effect to the brain. No wonder we love the tangy goodness of green tea.
