Tea has been a popular and even cultural drink for centuries. India and China were among the first countries to cultivate and drink tea. It has a long history of use in eastern cultures, including India, China, Japan and Thailand, as a drink and even for medicinal purposes. Even so, it has recently been experiencing a revival in the western world due to numerous studies on its amazing health benefits.
Tea comes in several forms including black tea, white tea and green tea; all varieties of tea come from a single plant, Camellia Sinensis, the only difference is in their processing methods. Green tea is the least processed and our product of choice at Monica’s Fine Foods.
When tea leaves are picked, they oxidize, or wither and die as they dry out, however, green tea leaves are not allowed to oxidize and are quickly dried or oven fired to dehydrate the leaves for storage. This lack of oxidation allows the leaves to retain their many health benefits and high levels of polyphenols, catechins and flavonoids.
Health benefits from drinking green tea include lowering cholesterol, fighting cancer, reducing the effects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), controlling blood sugar and diabetes, boosting metabolism, fighting fat and more. Learn about other health benefits of green tea.
