Green tea is a wonder beverage. It has been consumed in Japan for over 800 years, and science is now just beginning to discover the remarkable benefits of this comforting and satisfying drink. “Traditionally, tea was drunk to improve blood flow, eliminate toxins, and to improve resistance to diseases” (Dufresne and Farnworth, 404). Green tea specifically is known for its role in “antimicrobial, immunostimulatory, anticarcinogenic, and anti-inflammatory capacities and for its protective effect against cardiovascular diseases” (Sato and Miyata, 315).

Matcha, or rubbed tea, was first used by Buddhist monks for religious rituals in the 12th century. This ceremonial green tea comes from the careful harvesting methods of the finest young Gyokuro (Jade Dew) leaves.

For this particular type, the leaves are covered three weeks prior to harvest and left laying flat to dry, leading to darker leaves with an increased amount of amino acids and a sweeter taste. Harvested only from plants that are over 30 years of age, the shading causes the plant to rush chlorophyll to the leaves in an effort to capture the energy of the sun. The leaves are then harvested and dried, ground to a very fine, jewel-green, talcum-like powder.

Antioxidant Powerhouse as Cancer Preventative

As more is learned about its benefits, green tea’s popularity has been thriving in other countries for hundreds of years. It is a rich, natural source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that can safely interact with cell-damaging free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged (as in Vitamin C), or seek out and scavenge free radicals (as in Vitamin E). Green tea contains 70 times the antioxidants of a similarly sized serving of orange juice.

Drinking tea induces a light sweat which washes away one's worries and prevents the body from becoming fat. If one drinks a strong cup of tea after a meal, it will remove any oil or fat and make the belly feel refreshed.

Tea causes one's eyes and ears to brighten. It stimulates the appetite and removes the effects of alcohol. It dispels tiredness and quenches thirst. It both prevents one from getting cold and causes the body to cool down when too hot. Tea also makes a very good fertilizer for potted flowers and plants.
