Health Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea 

Green tea is a drink that can be made from the dried tea leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The process is different from most other teas because the leaves of green tea do not undergo the same drying and oxidation process that black or oolong tea needs to.  Although green tea, and it's processing, originated from China, many other countries in East Asia grow, produce, and manufacture green tea products today.

The History of Green Tea

Green tea has its roots in the world's history dating back to 2737 BC. During the reign of Emperor Shennong, green tea became associated with China's high society when Shennog accidentally drank boiled water with tea leaves in it.

The rest of the Chinese population did not gain access to green tea until around the 14th century. Lu Yu wrote the book The Classic of Tea; this book is considered to be an important part of green tea history.

The Book of Tea is a book written by a Zen priest around 1211. He described how green tea could affect a human's five vital organs. His book also theorized that the shape of the plant, flower, and leaves are essential for the best quality tea. The book lastly disseminated knowledge about how to grow and process tea leaves.

Green tea was discovered in China 

While the discovery of green tea stems from China, the manufacturing of Chinese green tea has changed its methods from steaming to pan-frying in a dry wok. Other processes used are sun-drying, tumble-drying, basket-firing, and oven-firing. Green tea is still the most widely produced tea in China, now in China green tea is grown in tons and was last measured at 1.42 million tons in 2014.

Japanese Green Tea

The only commercially available tea produced in Japan today is green tea. There is a large machining factor in Japan, as Japanese culture uses modern technology and processing to reduce the labor of green tea production and improve yields. Only high-quality tea leaves use labor to create green tea.
Japanese green teas are steamed. The steaming process gives the tea a specific color and a sweeter flavor. 

Korean Green Tea

For the years of 1910 to 1945, the Japanese government suppressed Korea's use of tea, which was made harder by the Korean War. And because of this stifling, Korean tea culture did not begin until the 1970s. Although, even now, green tea does not have the same popularity as other Korean teas do.

Green Tea Benefits - Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea

While the green tea drink is mostly 99% water, it has no nutrient content, meaning that drinking green tea every day will not provide a person calories or any nutritional value for sustaining a healthy diet. That being said, green tea does contain phytochemicals such as polyphenols and caffeine.

The Claim of Green Tea Health Benefits

While the discovery of green tea stems from China, the manufacturing of Chinese green tea has changed its methods from steaming to pan-frying in a dry wok. Other processes used are sun-drying, tumble-drying, basket-firing, and oven-firing. Green tea is still the most widely produced tea in China, now in China green tea is grown in tons and was last measured at 1.42 million tons in 2014.

How Do The Health Advantages Claims Stack Up?

Green tea is still the most widely produced tea in China, now in China green tea is grown in tons and was last measured at 1.42 million tons in 2014.

While there is a long history of people claiming that green tea provides health benefits, there was never hard evidence to prove the theory true. A 2011 study by a panel of scientists found that there is weak, inconclusive evidence, which may affect outcomes of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
However, green tea can increase mental alertness, due to the caffeine, and may enhance the quality of life if it is drunk daily.

Beneficial antioxidants and compounds remain in the final product after brewing at AMICA Tea. Research shows that properly brewed green tea containing these active ingredients can: 

Improve Mental Focus:
Green tea contains just enough caffeine to provide a mental boost without giving the jitters that come from drinking too much coffee. With the addition of L-theanine, green tea also provides a calming effect. The result is improved brain function and better productivity.

Protect The Brain:
Green tea can improve mental focus, but studies show that it may protect the brain from the cognitive decline that comes naturally with age. This information even relates to preventing issues like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

Boost Metabolism:
Green tea may help lose weight by giving metabolism a boost and helping excess burn fat. It also helps fight cravings and maintain steady energy levels.

Boost Physical Endurance:
Green tea can help to improve physical endurance during exercise. Not only that, but the antioxidants in green tea also help to prevent damage to the tissues and improve recovery times.

Improved Dental Health: Science says that green tea can kill viruses and bacteria that contribute to plaque, cavities, and tooth decay.

Fight Illness and Infection: Not only can green tea kill viruses and bacteria in the mouth, but it can also inhibit them throughout the bloodstream and the rest of the body. That tool makes green tea useful for preventing colds, the flu, and other illnesses and infections.

Maintain Younger, Healthier Looking Skin:
Antioxidants in green tea fight free-radical damage, preventing premature skin aging. Anti-inflammatory effects of green tea can benefit those suffering from acne, rosacea, and psoriasis.

Lower Risk of Certain Cancers:
Some studies suggest the antioxidants in green tea may help to lower the risk of certain types of cancer, including breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and pancreatic cancer.

Green tea can increase the number of regulatory T cells. These are the cells that play a significant role in immunity and can suppress autoimmune disease. Many studies from the early 2000s show that there are positive effects on issues from type 2 diabetes, weight loss, and Alzheimer's disease.

While there are fantastic test results that show positive outcomes of green tea, it is essential to note that more evidence is needed before anything becomes definitive.

However, the National Cancer Institute found that the polyphenols in green tea have decreased tumor growth in animals when conducting studies. It also may protect against harmful UV rays.

Other studies have shown positive impacts of green tea with the following types of cancer: breast, bladder, ovarian, bowel, lung, stomach, skin, prostate, and throat.

It is believed that the high level of polyphenols helps kill cancerous cells or stop them from growing. Although how the polyphenols interact with cancerous cells has not been tested.

While the FDA states that there is no correlation between cancer reduction and green tea, studies continue to find links connected to them.

Other connections of green tea and health benefits are for the heart, lowering cholesterol, lowering the chance of strokes, type 2 diabetes, weight loss, inflammatory skin disease, working memory, Alzheimer's, immune function, and help with other autoimmune diseases.

Reduces Blood Sugar Levels:
Green tea can reduce and stabilize blood sugar levels, which significantly lowers the risk of developing Type II diabetes.

Lower Risk of Heart Disease:
Green tea contains antioxidants that protect the LDL cholesterol particles in blood from oxidizing, one of the leading contributors to cardiovascular disease. It may also help reduce high blood pressure, prevent blood clots, and reduce stroke risk.

Emily Ho, an LPI principal investigator and associate professor at Oregon State University's department of nutrition and exercise science, explains, "This appears to be a natural, plant-derived compound that can affect the number of regulatory T cells, and in the process improve immune function.

When fully understood, this could provide an easy and safe way to help control autoimmune problems and address various diseases." Her findings have been published in the Immunology Letters.

Green Tea Markets and Production

Green tea has seen constant growth over the last 30 years—from 1990 to 2016, the sale of green tea in the United States went from $7.4 million to $63 million, which is 11% growth. Within the past four years, green tea sales have bloomed into a multi-billion-dollar business.

Market Insights

Market insights show that the growing awareness of green tea's health benefits and its smooth flavor has begun to spark more interest in the global tea market.

Green tea is one of the most versatile drinks, as it comes in many flavors and can be mixed with other types of drinks, including (but not limited to) espresso. The convenience of the options allows consumers to try new concoctions affordably and efficiently.

Green tea has sold over $2.58 billion within the specialty tea category in the United States from 2018 through 2020. This number is 15% of the total global consumption. While it is still trying to find its footing in the United States, the number of homes and restaurants that will be carrying it by 2025 is expected to triple.

A report published in Global Industry Analysts, October 2019, projects that green tea will continue to grow $8.1 billion, globally, by 2025, and the United States will maintain a steady 4.9% momentum throughout the same timeline.  

Production Insights

China produces 80% of the world's green tea. This number leads to green tea exports and rises annually. The United States is the second-largest producer of Chinese green tea, and Britain is in the third largest spot.

Growing Tea in The Wuyi Mountains

Wuyi teas are often called "rock teas." The mountains, of course, have a unique landscape of rocks means that the tea grown in this area has many rich minerals due to the soil.

Rock tea is scarce and can be quite expensive. A co-founder of AMICA tea, Jim Johnson worked with farmers and producers to invent a system that allows AMICA to maximize the health benefits of tea and pass on health to our customers. 

Production Of Other Teas Black Tea

While other green tea is processed in many ways, the results and methods create unique amounts of polyphenols, which affect the taste and aroma of teas. Some teas are grown in the sun, and other teas are grown in the shade.
Each type of tea is grown in rows, pruned, and harvested in the same manner.

There are two harvests (called "flushes") of tea. The first flush will be between April and May, while the second will be "flushed" in late July to early August. Although there can be more harvests, the first "flush" in spring will bring the best-quality leaves, which means that farmers can charge higher prices.

Along with different types of growth methods, there are different processing methods as well. Some growers will use an artisanal method, while others will use "modern" methods. Artisanal methods consist of drying leaves in the sun, firing the leaves in a basket or over a fire, or pan-frying. Modern methods consist of drying the leaves in a tumbler or steaming the leaves.

Green teas processed under low humidity, refrigeration conditions are called aracha. Aracha is stored in paper bags and is yet to be refined. The final firing of the leaves takes place before the blending of the tea. Once the selection and packaging take place, the tea will be re-fired as they need to be. This method gives the green tea a longer shelf-life and a smoother flavor. 

Other Uses for Green Tea

Besides, containing natural vitamin supplements, green tea is used in beauty products, perfumes, dyes, and can be used as extracts.

When manufacturing tea, the first step is to soak it in an alcohol solution. This solution can be concentrated for several other uses, meaning that the tea produces byproducts.

This information also means that every part of the tea-making process can produce components for resale. These byproducts can be sold in the form of liquid, capsule, powder, or tablet.

While some versions of these byproducts are decaffeinated, the total weight of caffeine in one tablet (or another component) can contain up to 17.4%.  

Ways to Use Your Tea - Steeping:

Steeping makes tea from the leaves by using hot water. You can generally use two grams of tea for every 100 milliliters of water.

The temperature needed to steep will be from 61 degrees Celsius (or 142 degrees Fahrenheit) to 87 degrees Celsius (or 189 degrees Fahrenheit). While steeping time depends on how strong you would like a mug of tea, it can range from 30 seconds to three minutes, or longer.

If the tea is steeped for too long or too hot of water, the leaves will discharge extra tannins, which will leave the tea with a bitter taste, regardless of the quality of the tea leaves.

Brewing Green Tea

Brewing is a similar method to steeping, whereas you add one to seven bags of tea and boil it to generate a hearty flavor. Brewing tea is more synonymous with iced beverages, as steeping is more commonly known for hot beverages.

Brewing a pot of tea then gets put into a jug with or without sugar, cold water is added, and the components are stirred together. The beverage can then be refrigerated for a few days.

Quality Green Tea

Green Tea-Quality:
Lower quality teas are better to be steeped with hotter water and also should be steeped longer. High-quality teas should be steeped at a lower temperature for a shorter period. Higher-quality teas also use more leaves and can be used several times.
