Health Benefits

All tea originates from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis. However, the end product differs in style, taste and caffeine content due to differences in processing.

Due to oxidation Black tea contains a lower concentration of polyphenols and a higher caffeine content than Green tea. Black tea also displays a higher tannin content.

Too many tannins are considered bad for us, however studies show that the levels in tea do not appear to have a detremental affect on the body.

The amino acid present in the highest concentrations is Theanine proven to reduce stress and anxiety. For further information on the health benefits please visit our Health Benefits section.
