Green Tea has become a more popular beverage in recent years due mainly to publicity about its many possible health benefits and has acquired the label of “superfood” due to high antioxidant content. Green Tea is less processed than other teas and retains more original plant extracts and enzymes. It is available in concentrated capsule form as well as a variety of tea bags and is a constituent of a number of beauty products. As well as the usual antioxidant benefits it is claimed that it increases metabolism, lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels as well as being a “brain booster”. It has a slightly bitter taste and many people prefer the flavoured varieties.
