Health Benefits of Drinking Japanese Green Tea

Our green teas are highly specialized: they are non-fermented, non-oxidized, and top grade.

With the exception of allowed ingredients to expedite the fermentation process in soil preparation, all our green teas are totally organic.

They contain no artificial coloring, preservatives, or flavorings. They are nearly 100% calorie-free and the leaves contain only “natural” compounds: amino-acids, carbohydrates, mineral ions, caffeine and polyphenol.

According to a report in The American Journal of Epidemiology, an 8-year study of 35,000 women linked regular green tea drinking with a reduced risk for cancers of the upper digestive tract, colon, and rectum.

Unlike the caffeine in coffee, which is absorbed rapidly and stimulates an immediate increase in blood circulation and cardio-vascular activity, the polyphenols in tea help to slow down the rate of absorption. Tea drinkers feel the effects of caffeine more gradually, making tea a more refreshing and revitalizing beverage than coffee over longer periods.

Green tea polyphenols also work as anti-oxidants in the body, attacking the free radicals that cause cellular damage and DNA breakage.
