What’s Up With Green Tea?

Tea Forte, Inc.What's Up with Green Tea? Well, besides the fact that it's very tasty, green tea is full of powerful antioxidants, called catechins, that search for free radicals (aka renegade molecules) that can damage DNA. Unlike black tea, green tea undergoes very little processing. Its leaves are dried and then steamed, not fermented. As a result, its catechins are more cencentrated. According to Harvard Women's Health Watch, studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder cancer. They recommend drinking a cup of green tea a few times a day to absorb antioxidants and other healthful plant compounds. Just let it steep for three to five minutes to bring out its catechins, then enjoy!
