As the world’s second most popular beverage, tea is consumed by millions of people on a daily basis. It is in part so popular because of the numerous health benefits it affords, as fresh brewed tea is 100 percent natural, fat-free, sugar-free, calorie-free, and is packed with antioxidants that are believed to help fight aging, reduce inflammation, and aid in weight loss. But, what exactly is tea? Essentially, tea is any beverage made from the leaves of plants of the Camellia sinensis species. However, there are many different kinds of tea, each of which undergoes a different oxidation process that impacts the tea’s appearance and taste, among other things. Here are some of the most popular kinds of tea:
- Green – Not oxidized, resulting in a very low caffeine content
- Black – Fully oxidized and contains 40 – 60 mg of caffeine per cup
- White – The least processed of all teas and contains only 10 – 15 mg of caffeine per cup
- Oolong – Semi-oxidized and considered to be the most healthy and palatable kind of tea
