Title: What's the Difference Between Green and Black Tea?


1
What's the Difference Between Green and Black Tea?
What makes green tea green and black tea black?
Is one better for you than the other? Learn about
the differences between these two types of tea
2
Black and green tea come from the same shrub
called Camellia sinensis. In both cases
harvesters pluck the uppermost buds and leaves
from the plant. So what's the difference? It
comes down to processing and oxidation, the
chemical process that causes browning.
3
Green tea To produce green tea, leaves are
harvested, withered, and then heated through
steaming (Japanese style) or pan-firing (Chinese
style). This process halts oxidation so the
leaves retain their color and delicate, fresh
flavor.
4
Black tea To produce black tea, leaves are
harvested and withered and then crushed, torn,
curled, or rolled and allowed to oxidize before
being dried. As a result the leaves darken and
develop a stronger flavor and aroma.
5
Which has more caffeine? Although green tea
typically has less caffeine than black tea, this
is not always the case. Caffeine content may vary
depending on the plant varietal, processing, and
brewing methods. According to the Mayo Clinic,
the caffeine content of green tea ranges from
24-40 mg per cup and black tea ranges from 14-61
mg per cup.
6
Which has more antioxidants? Green and black tea
both contain antioxidants, which may prevent
cancer and other diseases. For years research
focused on the health properties of green tea.
Recent studies indicate that black tea has
benefits as well.
