It is rich in Vitamin A, B, C, E, Theanine (amino acids), Polyphenols, and dietary fiber, minerals as well. The advantage of consuming green tea powder is that it provides 100% of the health benefits found in Green Tea leaf. Whenteabags or loose teas are steeped, only 5% to 10% of the nutrients naturally found in the tea end up in the cup. Most of the nutrients are not water-soluble. The minerals, fibers, vitamins, and antioxidants end up being thrown out with the tea leaves.
With green tea powder, you consume the leaves so the complete nutrient profile of the leaf is available.
