Green tea originated in China and gradually became a part of many cultures in Asia, from Japan to the Middle East. It is derived from the unfermented leaves of Camellia Sinensis (Latin for tea bush) and being the least processed of all teas, it contains the highest concentration of powerful anti-oxidants called polyphenols. Called the ‘dew of heaven’ by Lu-Yu, China’s Sage of Tea, in 780 AD, it is good ammunition for boosting your immune system.
