Green tea vs black tea: Which is the healthiest?

Tea is a drink very much appreciated by people all over the world. Green and black tea are made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant and the main difference between the two is that black tea is oxidized and green tea is not.

Both offer similar health benefits, including for the heart and brain. Green and black tea contains polyphenols with strong antioxidant effects, capable of reducing the risk of heart disease. In addition, both have caffeine to increase attention and focus and L-theanine, which releases stress and calms the body.

Although green tea may contain more powerful antioxidants, scientific evidence does not favor one tea more than the other.

In short, both are great additions to your diet.
