Despite the invention of Pyramid Tea Bags only occurring in 1997, Green tea itself dates back thousands of years! In fact, according to Chinese legend, the oldest date credited with the discovery of Green tea and tea altogether was in 2737 BC.
The story recounts the mystic Emperor Shen Nong, who, it is said, was a fond studier of plants, as well as their respective curative properties. On one such escapade in the wilderness, the Emperor took refuse under a wild tea tree and subsequently fell asleep from exhaustion while leaving his boiled water out in the open.
When he awoke, he noticed that some of the leaves had fallen into the water, and in his curiosity, took one small sip. Without immediately realising it, Emperor Shen Nong had accidently created the first cup of Green Tea, a beverage so popular in China and across the world that it now accounts for approximately 70% of the estimated 330,000 tonnes exported from the country annually!

Benefits of Green Tea
Arguably one of the healthiest beverages on the planet, Green tea has a well-documented background with countless health benefits. Jam-packed with incredible antioxidants, this brew can offer lower Cholesterol, improved skin, dental, and cardiovascular health and even lower risks of diabetes when consumed alongside a healthy and active lifestyle.
Further to this, recent studies have uncovered that the consumption of Loose Leaf Green Tea can aid with weight loss. This is largely down to one particular antioxidant compound known as Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which is found in abundance within Green tea. EGCG is well known for having the ability to boost the metabolism in the body, as well as breaking down fat. Meanwhile, EGCG also inhibits an enzyme that breaks down norepinephrine, resulting in an increase of this crucial hormone which is used by the nervous system to send important signals to fat cells breaking down your food. The stronger the signal the more fat gets broken down, read more about the health benefits of drinking green tea.
