Tea is to the body as music is to the soul...
— Earlene Grey
Green tea is made from the leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). After picking, these leaves are only minimally oxidized. This keeps the leaf green. Then the leaves are rolled, crushed and dried at a low temperature.
Green tea is a great fit for a healthy lifestyle. Green tea contains bio-active substances such as flavonoids (anti-oxidants) that help the body in the fight against so-called free radicals.
In addition, green tea can have a positive effect on, among other things, the metabolism, it can reduce the effects of LDL cholesterol and it can strengthen the immune system.
Green tea is made in almost all tea-producing countries. Whether it concerns China, Japan, India or Tibet, every country and even region has its own green tea specialty. Many of these special teas can be found in the extensive loose tea collection of The Smallest House.
