- Tea (Camellia sinensis) is the most consumed beverage in the world aside from water, and has many beneficial health effects. It is an important cash crop, and is grown commercially in about 30 different countries.
- Green tea is manufactured by drying fresh tea leaves. It contains characteristic polyphenolic compounds, (–)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG),3 (–)-epigallocatechin (EGC), (–)-epicatechin-3-gallate (ECG) and (–)-epicatechin (EC). These compounds are commonly known as catechins.
- A typical tea beverage, prepared in a proportion of 1 g leaf to 100 mL water in a 3-min brew, usually contains 250–350 mg tea solids, comprised of 30–42% catechins and 3–6% caffeine.  .
