Overview

Dating back more than 4,000 years, Chinese diet green tea has been long revered as a
tasty drink that can ward off diseases and improve one’s well-being. Since its first
recorded use during the time of Emperor Shen Nung, the link between Chinese diet green
tea and good health has never been severed. It’s been used as treatment for everything
from headaches to depression. Today, various health benefits of green tea are constantly
being reported and many scientists are now focusing their attention on the simple, yet
elegantly profound beverage that is green tea.

Like all three of the major Asian teas in the market, green tea comes from the plant called Carmellia sinensis. Much of the health benefits of green tea diets owe to the steaming method of making it. As opposed to black and oolong tea which undergoes full
oxidization, green tea diet is only gently steamed, preserving the natural antioxidants in its original form.
