Green Tea amoung other Anti-Oxidants

Postby njvegan » Dec 29, 2005 8:46 am

I was suprised not to see a recent green tea thread here. Interestingly enough, as popular as green tea has become, justly so, there is even a more potent cancer fighting tea; 'white tea' is challenging green tea's lead. i've been drinking green tea for years now. generally, it has releaved my migraines, and settled my stomach. it has also helped concentrate. if you live in the united states, I suggest buying "bromely green tea - decaffinated" it has a very nice frothy taste, and is enhanced with *honey, not sugar.

I am also curious of white tea. Does it provide the same health benefits green tea gives?

There is a different in taste. White tea tends to be more subtle, softer, less grassy than green tea. Also, you should infuse it with cooler water (around 185F), because white tea leaves are more sensitive to heat than green tea leaves and all the great stuff found in it will go awry.

Actually, most homemade iced tea (hot-brewed and fridge teas) did have more antioxidants than most convenience teas. So if you want the very max, make your own.

I have also never heard about the white tea, but I have researched from my side and I came to know that white tea is quite similar and more effective than green tea. Just like green tea, it also contains antioxidants which helps to protect the body from damage by free radicals. Its cancer prevention and also helps to lower high blood pressure and maintain a healthy one. In my research, I found that most of people have started having white tea.

Green tea is also a great remedy for weight loss. If you add just a spoonfull of honey to it, you'll get a great drink to have every morning. As for white tea, I'm not that specialized in it, but I was talking with people working at tea plantations, they told me that white tea cannot be consumed as frequent as green tea, as it has some components, which are not that good within larger amounts.
