Variety in Green Tea
New in Personalized Living Webzine:
Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea. They are both made from the leaves of the same species of plant (Camellia sinensis), but processed in different ways. After harvesters hand pluck the tea leaves, green tea leaves are immediately steamed or baked and then rolled and dried. They retain a green color. Black tea is also hand plucked, but it is left to wither and oxidize (a process called fermentation). It is this process of oxidization that destroys the EGCG in black tea – that’s why black tea does not have the same health properties as green tea.
Green teas of different flavors and aromas are produced depending upon how they are cultivated and processed.
