What Tea Should I Drink the Most: Green or Black?

Although both green and black tea come from the same plant, they turn out to be different due to their production methods. In green tea’s production, leaves are not oxidized in the production phase. Green Tea leaves are harvested and heated to prevent oxidation and withering. Leaves are steamed or pan-fired, after which they retain the plant’s green hue.

On the other hand, black tea undergoes the oxidation process. Here, leaves are harvested and withered to minimize moisture. These leaves are rolled via a machine or a hand, after which they are distributed in large trays – this is how they get the black colour.


Green Tea

The biggest benefit of Green tea is the catechin content. Catechins are antioxidants that fight and may even prevent cell damage.

Green Tea is often taken for afternoon breaks during work or meditation in the evening. Since it is not much acidic, it eliminates acidic waste from the body. High-quality long leaf green tea, such as from Golden Tea Tips, is known for creating a detoxifying effect, giving you stronger immunity, boosted metabolism, and glowing skin.

Final Thoughts

Although both green tea and black tea vary when it comes to their effect on users, choose one based on your needs. For instance, if you are looking to reduce caffeine consumption, green tea is better. On the flip side, if you need something to drink in the morning, black tea is better.
