by posted in Home and Lifestyle

Green tea. The words spell health and goodness the world over, and it’s no different for us here in India.

Green tea is one of the most popular health drinks in the country and there’s a mind-boggling variety of it available today.

You can enjoy plain green tea or have it with different flavours ranging from citrus to florals, spices, and herbs.

Though green tea (unfermented leaves that haven’t undergone the processes of withering and oxidation) originated in China is now widely made in many countries including India.

The Indian market is flooded with green tea sold by big multinationals and small artisanal companies alike.

Sourcing good green tea can get quite confusing, so wide is the variety, and that is why we have put together a selection of some of the best brands available today.
