Green Teas

Green tea consists of leaves that haven’t been fermented and so contain the highest level of antioxidants. The many possible health benefits of drinking green teas may include reducing the risk of heart disease, helping in the fight against Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and lowering the incidence of breast cancer. Drinking green tea regularly may also be conducive to weight loss.
