Green tea is the unoxidized tea leaf obtained from the Camellia sinensis plant. The healing activity of green tea is 6 times more than black tea due to tea polyphenols.
In traditional Chinese and Indian medicine, practitioners used green tea as a stimulant, diuretic, astringent (to control bleeding and help heal wounds), and to improve heart health. Other traditional uses of green tea include treating flatulence, regulating body temperature and blood sugar, promoting digestion, and improving mental processes
