Green tea is healthier than Black tea

Fact

No. Green and black teas both contain similar amounts of flavonoid components which differ in their nature. Green tea contains proportionally more of the simple flavonoids called catechins while black tea mainly comprises more complex flavonoids called theaflavins and thearubigins. Both these simple and complex flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancers.
