Green tea owes its subtle flavors and gentle, mouth-cleansing astringency to a number of organic compounds. One of them is epigallocatechin gallate, usually abbreviated as EGCG, which has attracted attention within the medical and wellness communities for its potential health benefits. More research is required, but in the meantime green tea remains an appealing beverage, and any long-term health benefits will be a pleasant bonus.
