Green tea is not oxidized, has a light liquor, and is the closest tea type to the leaf on the tea bush. There is a wide range of profiles and flavors, with over 1,500 varieties to explore. For best tasting tea, green tea is brewed at a cooler temperature (approximately 170 degrees) and for no longer than 3 minutes. If you find it bitter or biting, reduce the heat of your water or steeping time.
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. It has more antioxidants and generally less caffeine compared to black tea. Drinking green tea daily can also improve your body’s ability to fight colds and flu.
