History:

Green tea has a long and storied history spanning nearly 5,000 years, with China and Japan playing central roles in its development and cultural significance. In ancient China, green tea was initially used for medicinal purposes before evolving into a beloved daily beverage. It was during the Tang Dynasty (618-907) that Chinese tea culture began to flourish, and the famous poet and tea connoisseur Lu Yu wrote "The Classic of Tea," an influential treatise on tea cultivation and preparation. In Japan, green tea was introduced by Buddhist monks returning from China during the 9th century. By the 12th century, tea had become an integral part of Japanese culture, with the development of the Japanese tea ceremony, or chanoyu, highlighting its revered status in society.

Possible Health Benefits:

Green tea has been linked to various health benefits, such as reduced mortality due to cardiovascular disease, lower prevalence of cognitive impairment, improved cholesterol levels, weight management, and alleviation of rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. These benefits are attributed to its high levels of polyphenols and other antioxidants.
