Green Tea History

History of Tea

A pioneer in the manufacture, research, development and application of green tea and green tea extracts, the mission of Taiyo is to bring reliability, safety and high quality to all consumers of green tea around the world. Drawing upon the 50-year experience of Taiyo Kagaku, having focused on green tea research and nutritional product development, together with the world’s leading manufacturing technology, Taiyo is the leader in the fast growing field of green tea.
Studies over the past ten years have provided mounting evidence that green tea polyphenols can affect human and animal health in many positive ways. Such polyphenols can also provide strong antioxidant effects in non-biological systems. Green tea has demonstrated antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anticariogenic, antimutagenic, thermogenic, kidney protecting, deodorizing, and blood glucose and blood lipid controlling properties.
Taiyo’s prowess in green tea technology was recently enhanced with a merger resulting in the world’s largest green tea extract manufacturer, Taiyo Green Power. Located in Wuxi, China, Taiyo Green Power has an annual capacity of 2,500 metric tons, supplying to the food, supplement and pharmaceutical industries.
