Green Tea

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is known for its delicate flavor and is widely consumed in many parts of the world, particularly in Asia. Unlike black tea, which is fully oxidized, green tea is made by lightly steaming or pan-firing the tea leaves to preserve their natural green color and flavor. As a result, green tea has a more subtle and slightly grassy taste compared to black tea.

Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to have a number of health benefits. It contains high levels of catechins, which are a type of flavonoid that has been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies have suggested that green tea may help to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. It may also help to improve brain function, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Green tea is often enjoyed on its own, without milk or sugar, and it can be served hot or cold. It is also used as the base for a variety of flavored teas, such as jasmine green tea and matcha. Green tea is typically consumed as a hot beverage, but it can also be made into iced tea or used as an ingredient in smoothies and other recipes.
