Green Tea is rich in antioxidant flavonoids, including catechins. The most abundant catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). This compound is largely responsible for the antioxidant, LDL lowering and anti-cancer properties of Green Tea. These catechins also stimulate the burning of fat in liver and muscles, thus aiding in weight loss.
How to brew? Put a teaspoon of tea (approx-2g) into a tea pot. Boil a cup of water (150ml). Remove from fire and set it aside for a few seconds. Pour the boiled water into the tea pot, close with lid and wait for 2 minutes.
