Its most ancient origin is in China, but it is also cultivated in many other countries as well. It is a traditional drink of China. They also use it as a medicine due to its phenolic (an Organic compound) contents in it.

Catechins include a very beneficial organic substance EGCG (Epigallocatechin-3- gallate) which differentiates green tea from other products.

Free radicals may also cause some certain sorts of cancers. Green tea also contains a relatively small amount of tannin. It also contains 2% to 3% of caffeine, but herbal green tea contains almost 0% of caffeine.
