What is this stuff called "green tea" and what is so great about it?!

The thing that is purported to be so great about it is that it has antioxidant properties. If you are lazy (like me), you can just take a green tea leaf capsule once a day.

Tea is a beverage prepared from tea leaves by infusion with boiling water. Green tea is a specific variety.
"Green tea is "true" tea (i.e. Camellia sinensis) that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea is popular in China and Japan, and recently has become more popular in the West, which traditionally drank black tea (a "true" tea made from leaves more heavily oxidized than the white, green, and oolong varieties)." --Wikipedia.
