Dr. Oshimi on the benefits of catechins

Dr. T. Oshimi of Hokkaido explains the many health benefits of green tea catechins.

Incidentally, the reason that the good doctor doesn't list tamaryokucha as one of the four types of green tea is that tamaryokucha is a type of sencha—grown and harvested in the same way and processed identically with one exception: at the end of processing, the leaves are curled instead of straightened, hence the name "tamaryokucha" (curled green tea).
