Green Tea History and Its Benefits
Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia Sinensis leaves that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make other teas. Green tea invented in China, but its production and manufacture has spread to many other countries.
When Green Tea Invented?
One famous legend put across that Shennong, King of China and supposed inventor of Chinese medicine, discovered tea as a beverage around 2737 BC when fresh tea leaves from a close tea tree fell into his cup of just boiled water.
Why it is called Green Tea?
It is named 'green' because it has been dried without fermenting so there is nominal oxidation during processing. It is made from the leaf Camellia Sinensis. Green tea, unlike black tea, is slightly oxidized, so that’s why it's called green tea. Do not forget that tea leaves are a plant and have nutrients.
