Benefits of Green Tea

People have been drinking infusions of tea for thousands of years. Today it is the most consumed beverage in the world after water. Also, there is a large number of studies done which shows that teas have many health benefits. While there are three main varieties of tea available today- black, green and herbal. Green tea is among one of the healthiest beverages one can consume. Benefits of Green tea are many. It is enjoyed sugar-free, it doesn’t have any calories and is loaded with antioxidants. Additionally, it tastes good and is super refreshing. 

While almost all tea (except herbal tea) is brewed from dried leaves of the same plant called Camellia sinensis . The difference comes with the way the leaves get processed and their level of oxidation, it determines their type. Green tea is made from unoxidized leaves. And it is one of the less processed types of tea available today. Therefore it contains the most amount of antioxidants and beneficial properties.
