Product Description

Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis

Plant Family: Theaceae (Tea family)

Botanical Description:
Camellia sinensis, commonly known as the tea plant, is an evergreen shrub or small tree native to East Asia, particularly China and Japan. It belongs to the Theaceae family and is cultivated worldwide for its leaves, which are used to produce various types of tea, including green tea, black tea, white tea, and oolong tea. Camellia sinensis typically grows up to 2-4 meters in height, with glossy, dark green leaves and fragrant white flowers. The plant prefers humid climates and well-drained, acidic soils. Green tea is made from the unoxidized leaves of Camellia sinensis and is known for its delicate flavor, subtle aroma, and potential health benefits.

Green tea has been consumed for centuries in East Asia, particularly in China and Japan, where it is valued for its refreshing taste, cultural significance, and potential health-promoting properties. Green tea is made from the unoxidized leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant and is processed differently from other types of tea, such as black tea and oolong tea, which undergo oxidation during production. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and other bioactive compounds. It is often consumed as a beverage but is also used in traditional herbal medicine.

Tea: Prepare green tea by steeping dried green tea leaves in hot water (not boiling) for 2-3 minutes. Strain the infusion and drink it. Green tea may be consumed plain or flavored with lemon, honey, mint, or other herbs and spices. It is typically enjoyed hot but can also be served chilled as iced tea.
Capsules or Tablets: Green tea supplements are available in capsule or tablet form for convenient consumption. Follow the dosage recommendations provided on the product label or consult with a healthcare practitioner for personalised guidance.
Extract: Green tea extract is prepared by concentrating the active constituents of green tea leaves using a solvent extraction method. Green tea extract may be standardised to ensure consistent potency and efficacy. Take green tea extract orally according to the dosage instructions provided on the product label or by a qualified herbalist.
Powder: Green tea powder, also known as matcha, is made from finely ground green tea leaves. It can be mixed with hot water to make traditional matcha tea or incorporated into recipes for smoothies, baked goods, desserts, and savory dishes.
