Although our website promotes a wide range of health benefits from infusions and teas, most of them are not supported by published literature. This doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t experience a benefit; it simply means that scientists don’t know if the benefit can be replicated in scientific studies.

Green tea contains the following phytonutrients:

  • Epigallocatechin gallate > antioxidant properties
  • Flavonoids > anti-allergic, anticancer, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties
  • Caffeine > stimulant and diuretic
  • Theobromine > diuretic and blood pressure reduction
  • Theobromine, anthocyanins, and gallic acid > antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory properties

The potential health benefits of these phytonutrients are:

  • Controlling diabetes and blood pressure
  • Managing weight
  • Facilitating digestion and helping with diarrhea
  • Combating bacterial, viral, and fungal infections
  • Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels
  • Preventing cancer and cardiovascular diseases
  • Preventing premature aging

The Camellia Sinensis (tea plant) is a green shrub, whose leaves, if not immediately dry after picking, quickly begin to oxidize. The leaves become progressively dark (oxidized) as the chlorophyll breaks down. In green tea there is no oxidation, it is stopped by applying heat, either through steam (traditional Japanese method) or in hot trays (traditional Chinese method).

This plant is extensively cultivated around the world, particularly in Sri Lanka, India, China, Japan, Taiwan, Kenya, Cameroon, Tanzania and Malawi. In Portugal, this plant is cultivated in the Azores archipelago, especially on São Miguel Island. Most green teas, however, are produced in China and Japan and have therefore kept their name in Japanese or traditional Chinese: Sencha, Matcha, Genmaicha , Houjicha , Pouchong, among others.
