We would like to clarify that we do not make any medicinal claims on any of our teas, but we have gathered many articles on the health benefits of green tea. Medical Research has discovered that green tea naturally contains an antioxidant or polyphenols called (Epigallocatechin Gallate) or EGCG for short. This polyphenols appears to inhibit the growth of urokinase, an enzyme that promotes the growth of cancerous tumors. Extensive human studies are being conducted and many more benefits associated with drinking tea are being discovered.
