Green tea is the second most popular beverages in the world next only to water. Due to its associated health benefits, it has drawn the attention of many researchers. These beneficial health effects are mainly owing to the presence of catechins, a group of tea polyphenols which accounts to 12-20% of the dry weight of the green tea leaves. The major green tea catechins are: Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), Epigallocatechin (EGC), Epicatechin gallate (ECG) and Epicatechin (EC). Apart from beverage preparation, green tea extract can be extensively used in the production of functional and health foods.
