What is your favorite colored tea? If you like green, drink pretty close to the gold standard for tea. Green tea is one of the least processed types of tea (white is the least processed). And due to the fact that it is not processed long before it reaches the lips, green tea retains its valuable health benefits and an extremely high content of useful antioxidants and polyphenols.
All teas come from the same plant (Camellia sinensis) but are processed using different methods. For example, green tea goes through a less intensive process than black tea, whose leaves not only wither but are also crushed, broken, circled, or rolled. Green tea leaves remain intact because they are gently steamed and treated with (more) care.
Ah, I’ve always heard that green tea is healthy, you might think. While all teas are healthy, green is one of the healthiest. And there are probably many benefits beyond what you already know, such as protection against certain types of cancer, such as the prostate, stomach, and skin.
