An Introduction To Green Tea

An ancient Chinese proverb says, “”Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.”" The Chinese have had tremendous faith in the healing properties of green tea for over 4000 years, something the world is learning today. Green tea is made from the plant called Camellia sinensis, which is steamed to make tea.

Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, especially epigallocatechin gallate, which is a powerful antioxidant with DNA repairing properties. The tea helps in fighting cancer, especially cancer of the esophagus. It has been said to also cure rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases, infections and even impaired immune function. New research is also proving it to lower high blood pressure by repressing angiotensin II. Rich in fluoride, it helps fight tooth decay. The action of the antioxidants in tea is more than that in over 21 fruits and vegetables, much more than garlic, spinach or even cabbage.

Many are turning to organic green teas to reduce the harmful side effects of pesticides and fertilizers. Many prefer green tea’s flavor and aroma.

When you buy tea claiming to be organic, ensure that it is certified from an internationally established institute, such as IMO. Some of these teas even have eco-friendly packaging, such as those made of natural jute fiber, handmade paper and recycled board.

To make green tea, place a kettle of water on to boil. Add one teaspoon of green tea just before it reaches the boiling point and turn off the stove. Just cover it and leave for a while. If you boil the water, the taste will be astringent. You could have it plain or add milk and sugar, or lime and milk. You could drink up to 8-10 cups of tea per day. This will help with excellent health and slowing the aging process. But, do be aware that for some, the caffeine in the tea could result in insomnia. Green tea can be loved both hot and cold.
