Both black and green tea leaves come from the same plant source, Camellia sinensis. The leaves that eventually become black tea are first broken up and exposed to air.
This process promotes oxidation and deactivation of the valuable Polyphenols. With brewed Green tea, the lack of fermentation protects Polyphenols by destroying the enzyme that oxidizes them.
Body Ecology Black tea Extract has the same level of Polyphenols as green tea due to the enhanced Polyphenol concentration process. After Assam tea leaves are picked, they are inspected and sorted by hand. Withering takes place as water evaporates and the natural process of fermentation takes place. Fermentation, also known as oxidation, does not produce alcohol. Enzymes oxidize the tea leaf and turn it brown just like a tree leaf in the fall changes colors from green to brown .This process is accelerated by increased heat and high humidity. As a result of these conditions it takes only a few hours to turn green tea into what is known as the black tea -
Body Ecology Black tea essence is extracted with purified water from a blend of the best Estate Assam teas available. The extraction process for Body Ecology helps to retain and enhance high concentration levels of naturally occurring antioxidants.
Body Ecology extracts are made from Black tea with approximately 15-30% of the weight of the leaf being composed of polyphenols; over 50% of this polyphenol fraction is comprised of (-) Epigallocatechin Gallate(EGCG), the most biologically active and influential polyphenol in green tea.
