How is green tea made?
Legend says that tea was discovered by the Chinese Emperor Šen-nung, who accidentally dropped a few tea leaves into the pot while heating the water. After drinking the resulting infusion, the emperor was surprised by its excellent taste and energizing ability. Since then, tea has been grown in China and India for nearly 5,000 years, where it has always been used as traditional medicine.
Green tea is produced, as well as black tea, from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis tea plant, which originates from the territory on the border of China and India. However, now it’s cultivated in other places in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Japan or Indonesia. From black tea, it differs in the way it is processed. Green tea doesn’t go through an oxidation process like black tea. Tea leaves undergo heat treatment, dry in the sun or steam, which stops the oxidation process and preserves the typical flavor and aroma. Individual types of green tea go through a slightly different way of processing.
What are the benefits of drinking green tea?
Green tea is for its beneficial effects on the human body often called the “green treasure”. What makes it so special? It contains a great number of antioxidants (especially vitamin C and catechin) and polyphenols, so its regular drinking serves to prevent cancer and other civilization diseases. It also contains many other essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and tannins. For centuries, green tea has been used as the so-called “elixir of youth” because it slows down the aging process by increasing the body’s regenerative capacity. It helps quality sleep, has an antibacterial effect and supports the body’s natural immune defenses. However, it not only affects our physical body, but also serves against depression and anxiety, enhances good spirits and bring overall vitality.
