11 Benefits of Green Tea That You Didn’t Know About

“When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment?”

Iam so fond of herbal tea,in particular the Green one!Green tea has been used as a medicine for thousands of years, originating in China but widely used throughout Asia this beverage has a multitude of uses from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. The reason that green tea has more health benefits attached to it than black tea is (apparently) due to the processing. Black tea is processed in a way that allows for fermentation whereas green tea’s processing avoids the fermentation process. As a result, green tea retains maximum amount of antioxidants and poly-phenols the substances that give green tea its many benefits on:
1.Weight Loss
3.Heart Disease
4.Esophageal Cancer
6.Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
7.Tooth Decay
8.Blood Pressure
10.Anti-viral and Anti-bacterial
