Varieties of Japanese green tea. Not only can green tea improve brain function in the short term, it may also protect your brain in old age. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases are common neurodegenerative diseases. Multiple studies show that the catechin compounds in green tea can have protective effects on neurons in test tubes and animal models, potentally lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Gyokuro is one of many types of Japanese green tea. It's grown in the shade, for about three weeks before being plucked. To prepare the tea for steeping, it's recommend to heat up the mug prior to pouring in the tea, as Gyokuro is brewed at a lower temperature.
