Green & White Teas
Tea, particularly green and white tea, is rich in antioxidants, which can help combat free radicals and promote overall well-being.
Green Tea, best known for its grassy vegetal notes and greenish liquor and leaves, is quickly steamed or pan-fired to denature the oxidizing enzymes, and to preserve its characteristic freshness. White teas contain only the buds and very young leaves of the tea plant and are rarer than some other tea types.
Antioxidants in both tea types are known for guarding the body from damage inflicted by the free radicals we encounter through smog, pollution, UV exposure and oxidation (i.e., the natural aging process). Because of its antioxidant content, green & white teas may act as a powerful tool to protect us from some forms of cancer while boosting our immune systems and offering a host of additional perks.
