Is Green Tea healthier than the other teas?
The main reason that green tea is seen as the leader in health benefits is that more research has been done on the components of green tea than black tea. Catechin and theanine are available as industrial products and have been produced in Japan for some time. Consequently, it became easy to experiment with these compounds. More research produces more evidence and generates more public awareness. So we have more hard evidence for green tea and it is generally considered that green tea is the symbol of healthy tea.
