I know your green tea lovers are waiting to read this, raise your hands! There are many health benefits of consuming green tea and most importantly its role in weight loss has made it one of the most popular teas of this period. Green tea originated in China. Now the production of green tea is widely happening in almost every tea-growing region of the world like Japan, India, Taiwan, Kenya, and Sri Lanka. It is derived from Camellia Sinensis leaves and it does not undergo any oxidation process which makes it a relatively healthier beverage than the other oxidized variants available in the market.

Green tea is responsible for boosting up your immunity and protecting you against cough and flu. It is also linked with promoting a healthy heart by checking the bad cholesterol level or LDL. Consumption of green tea also facilitates clear skin and healthy hair. After being such a healthy beverage, some may worry about its caffeine content. If you are worrying about how much caffeine green tea has let me just tell you that it has much less caffeine content than coffee and most other teas, and it is also perfectly safe to consume.

Green tea is a non-fermented type of tea, indicating that it has undergone no oxidation unlike oolong tea or black tea. The traditional method of making green tea involves four steps, but when we look at a broader aspect only three ways are in use. Starting with light withering (although not practiced widely) followed by heating (also referred to as “fixing”) and then rolling and drying.

In fixing once the leaves are plucked, they are immediately taken to the factory for “fixing” or de-enzyme. This prevents the leaves from getting oxidized and turning brown.

Once the leaves are fixed, now we are proceeding with the rolling process for giving the final shape. This rolling process helps the cell wall to break down and extract aromatic compounds that are concentrated across the many layers within a leaf.

Next comes drying, which is carried out until the moisture content is reduced to about 1% of the total weight of the leaves.
