Green Tea

Green tea is not oxidized and has a light liquor. With over 1,500 varieties, green tea has a wide range of varieties and flavors.  Green tea is the closest tea type to the leaf on the tea bush.  For best tasting tea, green tea is brewed at a cooler temperature (approximately 170 degrees) and for no more than 3 minutes. Your green tea should be smooth tasting and delicious.  If you find it bitter or biting, reduce the heat of your water or your steeping time.

Health Benefits

Green tea has epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).  EGCG is a tea catechin that has tremendous antioxidant benefits including anti cancer effects, increased memory, cardiovascular benefits, and appetite suppressant or weight loss. Green tea has more antioxidants and generally less caffeine compared to black tea. Fighting cold and flu is another effect of drinking green tea daily.
