What is green tea?

Like black and white tea, green tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. What sets green tea apart from other types of tea is the way it is produced.

After harvesting, the tea leaves are heated quickly to stop oxidation and preserve their natural green color and freshness. This gentle processing gives green tea its unique flavor and health-promoting properties.

Is green tea healthy?

Green tea is not only a refreshing drink, but also a true superfood. It is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols that help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.

These compounds have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that may help improve overall health. In addition, green tea also contains caffeine, which provides the body with a gentle energy boost and can increase concentration and alertness.

However, unlike caffeinated drinks such as coffee, the caffeine in green tea has a gentler effect and does not cause typical side effects such as nervousness or sleep disorders.

Are there different types of green tea?

There is an impressive variety of green tea, each with its own unique aromas and flavor profiles. Popular varieties include sencha, matcha, gunpowder, and jasmine.

Each variety offers a special sensory experience and can be used in a variety of ways, whether for pure enjoyment, as a base for refreshing iced teas or as an ingredient in culinary creations.

How to prepare green tea

Proper preparation is crucial to enjoying the full flavor and health benefits of green tea. Here are some simple steps to prepare green tea at its best:

1. Use fresh, filtered water and heat it to about 70 - 80 °C. Water that is too hot can affect the taste of the green tea.

2. Add an appropriate amount of green tea leaves to a teapot or cup. As a rule of thumb, use about 10 g of tea per 1 liter of water.

3. Let the infusion brew for about a minute. You can brew the tea as often as you like until it loses its unique taste. This is usually 3 - 4 times.
