CHINA GREEN TEA 41022 is most commonly found in loose-leaf form or packaged in tea bags, but you can also try it as matcha tea. Matcha green tea is made from tea plants that are shade-grown. After harvest, the leaves are ground into a fine powder. This powder is whisked and dissolved into hot water or milk. Matcha makes a delicious, rich-tasting drink that you can enjoy as a substitute for coffee or black tea.
Did you know?
Compared to regular green tea, matcha tea is higher in polyphenols, protein, potassium, and vitamin A.
Green tea caffeine content
If you’re limiting caffeine intake, green tea may be a better choice than coffee. A standard 8 oz cup of green tea has approximately 35 mg of caffeine, compared to 100 mg for brewed coffee. Keep in mind that decaffeinated green tea may not provide the same benefits, as research has shown that decaffeination decreases the amount of volatile compounds in the tea.
Green tea supplements
This medicinal plant is commonly found in supplement form as green tea extract (GTE). GTE supplements contain L-theanine, individual catechins such as EGCG, and numerous other active constituents. If you’re a patient, we always recommend speaking with your integrative healthcare practitioner prior to trying a new supplement.
