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.
