Found in

Green tea or Camellia sinensis comes from the buds and young leaves of the tea plant. Once harvested, it is left in the open air for a few hours before being heat-dried. Green tea is the result of a slight oxidation that takes a few hours, unlike black tea which is heated overnight.

Benefits

Due to its energetic effect, green tea helps suppress appetite. It stimulates the body's energy consumption at rest (increases basal metabolism). Thanks to its EGCG content, it also helps reduce body fat.
