About Green Tea
Green tea is a good choice for people on a weight-loss program because it can help them to lead a healthier lifestyle. For example, substituting green tea for coffee with cream and sugar not only saves calories but also supplies a lot of healthful substances, such as polyphenols and flavonoids, that can help improve one’s overall health. Green tea contains a small amount of caffeine, so it serves as a mild appetite suppressant as well.
How much is usually taken by dieters?
Test tube studies suggest that green tea extracts high in catechins may inhibit fat digestion and a preliminary human study found a green tea extract increased calorie burning. A preliminary human study found that people taking a green tea extract containing 375 mg per day of total catechins (of which 270 mg per day was epigallocatechin gallate) for three months lost an average of 4.6% of their body weight without dieting. Double-blind trials are needed to confirm this effect.
How Green Tea is used and grown
All teas (green, black, and oolong) are derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference is in how the plucked leaves are prepared. Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. The leaves of the tea plant are used both as a social and a medicinal beverage.
About Long Life Herbal Teas

For Herbal and black teas, bring fresh cold spring water to a rolling boil. For green tea, heat just until steam develops but not to a boil. Pour 1 cup water over each tea bag and allow to steep 3 to 5 minutes. The longer it steeps the better it tastes. Relax, enjoy the developing aroma and color, anticipate the pleasure of a perfect cup of tea.
Customize your tea - because herbs extract at different rates your can increase sweetness or intensity simply by steeping longer. Create a personal favorite by combining tea bags in you cup. Try Ginger with Ming Dynasty Original Blend. Have fun, indulge your creativity.
Decaffeinate your green and black tea naturally. Pour hot water over tea and allow to steep for 20 seconds. Discard this water, add more hot water to complete the brewing process, steeping an additional 3 - 4 minutes. This will reduce the caffeine by 85%.
