The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. Today, scientific research in both Asia and the West is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with green tea, with studies showing that it inhibits the growth of cancer cells, lowers cholesterol levels, prevents tooth decay, and helps people burn more calories. But all green teas are not created equal. In this class, you'll discover the difference among Chinese green, Japanese green, and flavored green teas, as well as the difference among low-, middle-, and high-quality Japanese and Chinese tea. Learn how to properly steep green teas as we taste, taste, and taste some more.
