    Green tea is claimed to have possible health benefits. The healthful properties of green tea are largely attributed to their unfermented leaves and high concentration of polyphenols, chemicals with powerful antioxidant properties, which also gives it is slight bitter taste. Polyphenols’ antioxidant effects are said to be greater than that of vitamin Cs. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals, which are damaging compunds that are natural produced in the body or by environmental toxins, and prevents their damaging actions. Polyphenols found in teas are classified as catechins. Green tea has six primary catechin compounds: catechin, gallaogatechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate, and apigallocatechin gallate (also known as EGCG). Amongst the six primary catechin compounds, apigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most active and most studied polyphenol component in green tea. Green tea also contains alkaloids such as caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline, which gives green tea its stimulant effects. (http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/green-tea-000255.htm)
