Research on tea from the Camellia sinensis plant has included the study of a variety of polyphenol compounds including epigallocatechin 3- gallate (EGCG), theaflavins and thearubigins as well as other compounds found in tea. Epidemiological studies have indicated possible protective effects from tea consumption in specific chronic diseases. Learn about the history, culture and these potential health benefits of tea.
