Commonly known to many, green tea actually comes from the same plant where normal tea is obtained. In fact, it is the same tea but it is processed differently. The normal black tea is obtained by fermenting the tea leaves. This fermentation changes its color and flavor, while raising the level of caffeine and tannin in it. On the other hand, in the case of Green Tea, the tea leaves are dried or slightly steamed but not fermented. This is what makes it look green when it’s brewed.
The many well-researched health benefits of green tea makes it a great beverage to include in your diet for the prevention and treatment of cancer, heart problems, cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol levels, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, tooth decay, and many others.
Green tea is commonly used in every house of Asia and is now gaining popularity in the West side of the world too. After a heavy meal or a grand dawat the best way to digest food is to have a cup of warmly brewed green tea with a dash of lemon. Not only it helps digest the food but it even helps in weight loss as it releases the toxins from the body and make it clean.
