  1. Tea catechin
    It is a kind of polyphenol and is a component that has an antioxidant effect and an effect of suppressing the rise of blood sugar level.
    It is the main component of the astringency of tea.
    It has antioxidant and antiviral effects.
    It is recommended as a measure against overweight because it makes it difficult for fat to increase as the blood sugar level rises slowly.

    The umami of tea is derived from this amino acid.
