Studies have shown that Green Tea drinkers have a lower risk of various types of cancer (6), (7), (8) as antioxidants can have a protective effect on the oxidative damage that contributes to the cancer cells (9).

Where does Green Tea Come from?

Green Tea is made from the leaves of the Tea plant (Camellia sinensis). These leaves are steamed and rolled before drying, but unlike regular Tea Leaves the oxidisation process is skipped completely. Read more on the journey of Tea leaves.

It’s important to note that adding milk to your Green Tea will reduce the antioxidants available, meaning you won’t benefit from many of the health benefits.
