Abstract: Many locally available plants are not usually consumed by mankind due to the lack of knowledge about them. Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. The present study aimed to compare the biochemical, mineral and nutritive analysis of Camellia sinensis (green tea) with normal tea dust. The result showed the presence of carbohydrate, starch, protein and aminoacid in very less concentration when compare to RDA value. The green leaf was found to be rich in Vitamin A and B. In comparison with RDA minerals like iron, magnesium and calcium were found to be in the required amount for one day. Hence green tea can be taken in our day today life. The study revealed that the nutritive value of green tea in higher concentration than the tea dust and also found to be in required RDA value. Hence green tea can be recommended and suggested for our day to day life which enriches the energy.
