What is the Green Tea craze all about??? For centuries, all tea was considered green tea. But, green tea is purely and simply the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, which all teas originate, and once it's steeped in hot water...you have your delicious cup of healthiness. There was a time when Green tea leaves did not go through the oxidation process so it was tea in its most natural form. This version of the green tea leaf is still enjoyed around the world today as are many other versions of the same tea leaf. However, over centuries, there were different forms of green tea introduced as the world unfolded in its discovery of the tea leaf. Oolong and black teas were created much later after green tea's discovery.
Note: black tea is a fermented version of green tea and Oolong is semi-fermented.
The Western world is still trying to understand the variations of green tea because they are lovers of black teas...On the other hand, the Eastern part of the world are still lovers of the amazing variety of green tea flavors...
Although more research is needed, medical news today states, recent studies have shown green tea can potentially have positive effects on everything from weight loss to liver disorders, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Don't take this cup of Green beverage lightly...There's more beyond your brewed cup of loose leaf tea!!!
