Black tea, like green tea, is made from the leaves of the Chinese tea tree, but these are first fermented and then dried. Thanks to this process, black tea has a stronger flavour but contains fewer health benefits than green tea, such as EGCG. stimulant that can promote attention, act as an antioxidant and can support heart and digestive health, and help with blood sugar or cholesterol control.
