What is green tea?
Green tea originated in China centuries ago, but its popularity has since spread worldwide. It is made from Camellia Sinensis buds and leaves that haven’t been through the oxidisation and withering process necessary for making oolong and black tea. Skipping this extra processing makes it higher in protective polyphenols like EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate).
