You must have heard people saying green tea is excellent for health and its effects are unmatched. Why? What makes green tea such an effective drink?

Green tea primarily originated in China, from where it was introduced worldwide. The reason for this magic drink to possess its properties lies in its processing, which varies from the processing of regular black tea. The processing of green tea involves two steps, while that of black tea involves three steps. Where on one hand green tea is harvested and directly pan fried or steamed (without oxidation), black tea is also allowed to oxidize before drying. This creates a vast difference between the flavors of these two drinks, with green tea being fresh and light, and black tea having a stronger flavor.

The brewing gives variable caffeine content to these tea types, as green tea has lesser caffeine than black tea. Both of these also contain different antioxidants, with the former having more effective anti oxidants than the latter.
