Green tea is native to China. The first green tea was exported from India to Japan during the 17th century. Green tea contains proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates, minerals, lipids, and polyphenols, which include flavanols, flavandiols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. The most abundant and powerful flavonoid in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), studied for its different beneficial effects.

Green tea may be beneficial for obesity, liver disorders, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, bad breath, and skin inflammation.
