Green tea contains caffeine (but less than coffee) which does more than just keep you alert, it may also help boost brain function and prevent mental aging.
Green tea increases fat burning and boost metabolic rate by mobilizing fatty acids from fat tissue and making them available for use as energy, helping you to lose weight.
Green tea has catechins which have benefits for oral health. These catechins suppress the growth of bacteria in the mouth which is a leading contributor to cavities and tooth decay.

What is the difference between Japanese tea and Black/Chinese tea?
Black tea , Oolong tea, Green tea (Japanese tea) all derive from the same plant (camellia sinensis / evergreen shrub). Depending on the processing method, the product is later classified as black tea, oolong tea or green tea (Japanese tea).
Since Japanese tea does not generally ferment, it is called non-fermented tea. Black tea is made of completely fermented leaves and classified as fermented tea.
The manufacturing process makes all the difference. By terminating the fermentation prematurely Chinese tea is classified as a semi-fermented tea.
When is Japanese tea harvested?
The harvest of Japanese tea depends on the climate of the year, but it will usually start around the beginning of April.
