Health, beauty and longevity with a cup of green tea

It is a well-known fact that tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world after water. A green tea is also one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. It is prepared from the top leaves of the tea bush (Camellia Sinensis), which undergo minimal oxidation during processing. Both black tea and oolong (oolong) tea, which are well known to everyone, come from the same plant.

The significant difference in the nutritional profile of green tea is due to its different processing. The leaves are processed using a steam drying method that preserves their antioxidant content. The level of antioxidants is determined by the quality of the tea, the method and time of its preparation.

Green tea originated in China, but it is also associated with many other East Asian countries, such as Japan and South Korea. In China, unlike in the Western world, the word "tea" refers specifically to green tea. This tea is grown not only in Asia, but also in many other places around the world, which is why its taste can vary according to the different conditions in which the tea bush is grown.
