Green Tea History and Its Benefits

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia Sinensis leaves that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make other teas. Green tea invented in China, but its production and manufacture has spread to many other countries.

When Green Tea Invented?

One famous legend put across that Shennong, King of China and supposed inventor of Chinese medicine, discovered tea as a beverage around 2737 BC when fresh tea leaves from a close tea tree fell into his cup of just boiled water.

 Why it is called Green Tea?

It is named 'green' because it has been dried without fermenting so there is nominal oxidation during processing. It is made from the leaf Camellia Sinensis. Green tea, unlike black tea, is slightly oxidized, so that’s why it's called green tea. Do not forget that tea leaves are a plant and have nutrients.

Brewing cups of morning sunshine…The organic way

Some tread the tested paths to survive, but only a few create their own paths to win. Who would have otherwise imagined that a little boy from a remote village in Assam, after losing his father at the age of 6, would grow up to turn his humble ancestral farms into a major revenue earning source, winning global accolades!

Meet Tenzing Bodosa, a young and vibrant organic farmer and entrepreneur, whose two organic tea gardens at the Kachibari village in the Udalguri district of Assam generate a yearly turnover of Rs. 60-70 lakhs. Deemed as Assam’s first organic tea farmer, Tenzing’s lush green property has also been crowned as the world’s first elephant-friendly farms due to the unrestricted movement of these large mammals in the tea gardens in giant herds of 70-80. It might sound like an irony that respect and maintenance of nature’s balance is his enterprising mantra. But once you learn his story, you will be convinced that this young entrepreneur is a sure shot winner in raising a perfect balance between his own ambitions and nature’s poise. As he says, “If you respect nature, nature will respect you.”

Food or medicine – which is better for your overall well-being

 

Most people are under the impression that their health issues will reduce or even disappear by taking medicines, as they’re prescribed by doctors. There are many people who take medication not just for serious problems, but also for common cold and fever! However, not many know that the benefit medicines provide is mostly temporary. If you want to recover from health problems, the most important thing is leading a healthy lifestyle. Your grandmother would have insisted you drink a cup of cinnamon tea for clearing a runny nose or hot lemon tea for an upset tummy. Why? Because she knows that having tea, herbs and other food with medicinal properties will do you more good, than gulping down two spoons of distasteful syrup and falling into deep sleep.

Steep a Sweet Cup of Tea, Shall We?

India’s unwavering love of tea is unquestionable. And why not! But then what’s tea without sugar, right? Tea had started out as a fad of the British nobility. But unlike any other fad, it didn’t fade into oblivion thanks to another favorite snack of the upper classes: sugar. It was expensive and also relatively rare, which made it perfect for the consumption of status-conscious elites. As time passed and with it came the industrial revolution, tea and sugar became more of a common man’s drink providing easy source of calories to the working class.

Coconut sugar – an amazing alternative to regular sugar

 Are you a fitness freak? Looking for a substitute for table sugar for your cheat meal? While there are many artificial sweeteners available in the market, coconut sugar would be a natural and a healthier choice. Organic coconut sugar is made from the flower buds of selected healthy coconut palms in tropical regions. It tastes like brown sugar, with a hint of caramel. The color would depend on many factors, including the type of coconut palms used for harvest, the season when the saps were harvested, and the region where they’re harvested.

 The process of manufacturing coconut sugar

Most companies hire local farmers for collecting pure sap from the coconut palms grown in their own farms. The farmer makes a slit in the coconut flower bud, allowing the nectar to pour out into bamboo containers. Once the cups are full, they are replaced with new ones to collect more sap. The collected sap is filtered over a fine cloth in order to remove any impurities. The sap is then cooked on low flame, till the moisture content reduces. It is then removed from the flame, and stirred until it thickens. The mixture is sometimes stirred for hours for better consistency. Once the water evaporates, it turns into granulated sugar. It is then sifted, and sent to the packaging center. The coconut sugar is then dried, packaged and sealed.
