Green Tea Gets All the Love; here's why Black Tea is healthy too.
This is quick list of most of the benefits of Black tea. It has many healing properties and a few others green does not; it is from the same species of plant as White, Green & Oolong Tea - it's just fully oxidized.
The majority of tea research and tea health research for decades was predominately only coming from Japan, which very exclusively prefers and makes only green teas.
Black tea has several differences from White, Green or Oolong. The most pronounced is Black tea contains more theaflavins while green tea contains more epigallocatechin gallate (also called EGCG).
