All Black teas come from a plant called Camellia Sinensis. The tea plant is native to the Yunnan province in China, where it still grows wild. Black tea has antioxidants and caffeine. Through the oxidation process some of the antioxidants are converted into less potent forms, but on the other hand more caffeine is released, making Black tea an excellent physical stimulant, banishing passivity and making your eyes sparkle.
Green tea is the less fermented form of Black tea, however it comes from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis. Green tea has antioxidant properties, which can be helpful with many health issues. Green tea has more iron, vitamins and catechines than black tea. Green tea can be enjoyed by itself in many variations or combined with fruit and herbal teas.
