Green Tea is fresh tea with a light aroma generally known for its light green colour and health benefits and has a pleasing finish. It too goes through the same manufacturing process as black tea, except the tea is not allowed to ferment or oxidise. The fermentation is stopped through steaming the tea or pan-frying it. Green tea is said to contain the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants as it is made using these unfermented leaves. Normally, green tea is consumed without milk and after meals, though it can be drunk throughout the day. Regular consumption of green tea can help towards burning calories which is why it is the preferred beverage with people working towards losing weight. It is always best to drink freshly brewed green tea as the health benefits are said to reduce as the brew cools down.
