Our Fresh Chinese Green Tea

Regular green tea is 99.9% water, providing 1 Calorie per 100 ml serving, is devoid of significant nutrient content (table) and contains phytochemicals, such as polyphenols and caffeine.

 

Polyphenols found in green tea include epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epicatechin gallate, epicatechins and flavanols, which have antioxidant, anticarcinogen, anti-inflammatory, and anti-radiation biochemical effects in vitro.

 

Other components include three kinds of flavonoids, known as kaempferol, quercetin, and myricetin.

 

A remarkably higher content of myricetin is detected in tea and its extracts than in many other plants, and this high concentration of myricetin may have some implications for the experimentally-observed bioactivity of tea and its extracts in vitro. 

Although numerous claims have been made for the health benefits of green tea, human clinical research has not provided conclusive evidence of any effects.

 

In 2011, a panel of scientists published a report on the claims for health effects at the request of the European Commission: in general they found that the claims made for green tea were not supported by sufficient scientific evidence.

Although the mean content of flavonoids and catechins in a cup of green tea is higher than that in the same volume of other food and drink items that are traditionally considered to promote health, flavonoids and catechins have no proven biological effect in humans.
