Tea is high in catechins and tannins, which help reinforce healthy teeth. Green tea specifically also contains high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties due to the way it is roasted or pan fried or steamed, which can help fight off various cancers, reduce blood clotting, and improve skin health. It also contains flavonoids which improve heart health while lowering blood pressure. These flavanoids also lower triglycerides and total cholesterol. Certain strains of green tea, including Wild Kamairicha, contain l-theanine, an amino acid that reduces anxiety and increases alertness and attention.
