Did you know that green tea comes from the same plant as black tea? The plant name is Camellia sinensis. In Chinese it literally means ‘tea flower’. This beautiful evergreen shrub also yields white and yellow teas. Once the tea leaves are plucked they undergo a variety of different preparations such as steaming, fermenting and oxidizing, to name a few, in order to yield the different tea colors.
Green tea’s medicinal benefits have been known since ancient times. Used as a panacea to treat everything from headaches to depression. Drinking green tea, a simple daily ritual, offers health benefits beyond any modern day superfood and these are the reasons why?
