So let us take a look and learn about the wonder of Green Tea.

Green tea is made from the leaves of a plant grown in China and Southeast Asia, known under the name Camellia sinensis. White tea, Oolong tea (the leaves of Camellia sinensis are withered under strong sun to get this variety) Green tea and even Black tea are derived from the leaves of this same plant. If you are wondering how different teas are derived from the same plant, here is your answer. The difference in which how different teas are formulated from the same plant is dependent on the length in processing and oxidation.

Different varieties of green tea are derived as a result of different growing conditions, processing and harvesting time. Pure green tea, green tea with strawberries and lemon are utilized for the treatment of a large variety of diseases. Recent data on Green tea and the consumption of it indicates that green tea has a very strong antioxidant effect, helps to reduce body mass and helps in the prevention of a number of serious diseases including heart disease and even cancer. Green tea is the irreplaceable drink of choice for people battling their weight and who want to increase the metabolic rate without harm to their overall health, as one of the many powers of green tea is that it can  boost the speed of chemical reactions in the body without increasing heart rate.
