Benefits: Sencha green tea has very high antioxidant properties and helps to increase your immunity. While Vitamins C and E are well-known antioxidants, the levels present in Sencha green tea are hundreds of times more powerful than Vitamin C and twenty five times more powerful than Vitamin E when it comes to protecting the immune system. Among many other benefits that green tea possesses are lowering high blood pressure and reducing overall cholesterol. These make green tea highly effective in preventing heart disease and strokes. Green tea can regulate blood sugar levels in people with diabetes and can actually prevent the onset of the disease. It can also prevent and treat cancer as well as acne.
Fun to know: The base of this wonderfully smooth tea is a Sencha style green tea manufactured in Hunan Province, South Eastern China. Sencha, a Japanese style green tea, is produced by skipping the fermentation process required for black tea. Interestingly, both green and black teas can be produced from the same bushes. In green manufacture, the freshly plucked leaves are steamed or heated (to kill the enzymes that cause fermentation) immediately and then bruised by machine or hand. Next the leaf is pan-fried or sometimes basket fired - processes that give the tea its distinctive glossy look and feel. The finished tea has a dark green, needle shaped leaf and produces a pale green, yellowish liquor with a very bright cup and sweet, honey like finish.
