Green Tea Herbs & Its Black Tea Cousing

At first glance it will seem to you that the differences between green tea herbs and black tea appear to be numerous, but you will find that there are a number of similarities too that you may never imagined.

For example; maybe you didn’t know it, but black and green tea herbs come from the same plant, this is the Camellia Sinensis found in a number of Asian countries such as China, Vietnam, Thailand, etc. However, the final beverage that you take will depend on how the leaves are processed and brewed. This is the reason why green tea has a very high concentration of antioxidants compared to its cousin the black tea, which has a stronger flavor due to its further processing compared to the green one that is never allowed to ferment or oxidize. Thanks to this precaution taken with green tea herbs the phytochemical components known as catechins are not lost.

Though black tea still conserves part of its antioxidant components and will also have beneficial effects for your health, it may be not as great as the green tea but you will not regret having a cup of black tea if that’s what there is.

Additionally there are other differences between the two famous teas. That’s the flavor. Green tea has a more fresh, light flavor due to its low processing compared with the strong flavor of black tea resulting from the oxidation of its components during the fermentation process. Also black tea, compared to green, will give you an energy boost due to the caffeine found in its fully fermented leaves. Though its effects are much milder and friendly than those of coffee.

Now you know some differences and similarities between the green tea herbs and black tea. One thing is sure. Both will make you good.
