    52 Earth-Shattering Green Tea Benefits


    Green tea is believed to have been discovered by the Chinese over four thousand years ago and used for its herbal and medicinal powers. It comes from a plant named Carmellia Sinensis. Unlike black tea, which is completely oxidized, green tea leaves are simply steamed and hence ensure the preservation of useful antioxidants, tannins and flavonoids. The Japanese trade with Europe, especially with the Portugese, in the 1500s brought about the exchange of tea culture. Today, the Chinese green tea has become popular for its detoxifying capacity and therapeutic properties.


    Out of all of the health benefits of green tea, weight loss seems the most popular application.
