Viridian Organic Green Tea Leaf contains green tea (Camilla sinesis) which is a rich source of polyphenols including proanthocyanidins and particularly Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Green tea also provides the amino acid L-theanine.
All teas (green, black, and oolong) are derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference is in how the plucked leaves are prepared. Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb.
Green Tea is universally renowned for its antioxidant properties and may help support healthy weight, promote a healthy cardiovascular system and it is often used in detoxification programs.
