Below you can read a little more about green tea. Qualities, origin etc. The leaves of the green tea come from the same tea plant or tea bush as the black tea comes from. It is the manufacturing method after the actual picking, which is different from the black tea to the green tea. Unlike black tea, green tea is unfermented, which means the tea is not oxygenated. After viewing and drying, the tea leaves are heat-treated so that there is no oxygenation of the tea leaves. This has consequences affecting both the color and the taste of the tea. Most green teas have a limited content of caffeine. The heat treatment may consist of steaming the tea leaves. Green tea has a high content of vitamin B and C, which causes a cleansing and build-up effect. It is said that green tea makes the walls of blood vessels more elastic and lowers blood pressure. At the same time, green tea has a high content of antioxidants, which protects the body's cells from poor oxygenation. Green tea differs from black tea as it is completely untreated and therefore possesses the vitamins that black tea loses during the fermentation process. This is important in the case of tea brewing, where it is important to use between 60-80 degrees hot water, in order to preserve minerals and vitamins intact during tea brewing.
