Green Tea leaves are usually picked, steamed or heated,and then rolled before reheating and is considered one of the healthiest drinks on the planet. This can be attributed to its antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory benefits. Green Tea elements include polyphenols (catechins), amino acids (L-theanine), alkaloids (caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline), chlorophyll, fluoride, proteins, carbohydrates, phenolic acids, trace elements, essential oils, vitamins (A, C, and E), and various minerals.
