Green tea Camellia Sinensis L. is a shrub or small tree in the Teaceae family. The green tea plant originated in the warm, rainy Asian forests, from Burma to Vietnam and Southern China. Tea drinking, a practice brought from the East, is currently a widespread habit. Tea is mostly grown in India, Sri Lanka and China.
The various types of tea that can be obtained from the tea plant (red, black and white tea) result from the different forms of processing the leaves. Tea leaves undergo a milder treatment process (dried without fermenting) to yield green tea, thus keeping their original colour. Tea leaves contain methylxanthines (mostly caffeine, also known as theine), polyphenols, flavonoids, proteins, epigallocatechin gallate, tannins, carbohydrates, vitamins B1, B2 and C, minerals and essential oil.
Green tea has the following properties:
• Stimulates lipolysis (fat burning);
• Stimulates thermogenesis (production of heat);
• Stimulates the central nervous system;
• Physical and mental stimulant.
