Lipidami™ Green Tea

Add to favourites
The history of Tea dates back 3000 B.C. The Chinese and Hindus both claim the honour of having been the first to drink the famous preparation. The drink’s popularity spread to Europe in the 17th Century and the traditional English teatime was launched by the Duchess of Bedford in the early 19th Century. There are five types of Tea, each obtained from the same species but with different treatment on the leaves. For green tea, the leaves are quickly heat-dried (to kill the enzymes) then rolled and dried again; it is an unfermented tea. According to the legend, the Emperor-God Shen Nung was boiling water under a tree for a drink when the wind swept a few leaves off the tree and into the water. The emperor tasted it and found its flavour very delicate. It was a Wild Tea plant. Buddhist monks drink a lot of Tea as it helps them stay awake during their long meditations. Tea leaves contain large quantities of antioxidant substances which act against free radicals and protect our cells from everyday aggressions. It is then traditionally used in consumer care as a protecting active compound. The oily extract of green tea contains fatty acids (mainly oleic acid) and phytosterols with emollient and regenerating powers.
