Health experts have recognized and shared the benefits of green tea for some years now. But how does it act on your body and mind? Camellia Sinensis Tea House reveals to us the many virtues of this tea. Green teas come primarily from China and Japan and have always been a favourite among Asians. The tea became popular in the West after recent studies showed it contains a higher amount of polyphenols than any other family of tea. With its antioxidant properties, green tea can prevent some forms of cancer. It is also known to enhance focus, containing more iron, vitamins and catechins than black tea. Camellia Sinensis offers a wide selection of Chinese or Japanese green teas with different virtues and tastes. Here’s a look at their most popular:
