All the true teas- Green, Black, Oolong... come from the same plant Camellia Sinensis. Herbal infusions however, do not come from this plant and hence they don't contain the same compounds found in Black or Green tea. Herbal infusions are caffeine free.

The size of the leaf of dried teas varies depending on the processing method of the tea leaves and what they are going to be used for. For example, Dust tea (smaller leaf size) is used in tea bags to give quicker infusion during preparation. But that does not mean it is a lower quality tea and the beneficial components of tea are the same irrespective of leaf size.

 Flavonoids are heart healthy compounds found in fruits and vegetables; and brewed Black or Green Teas are one of the highest sources of flavonoids in the diet.  

Tea is a rich source of flavonoids.  Green tea brews are rich in flavonoids called, ‘catechins’, whilst black tea flavonoids are called thearubigins and theaflavins and are just as effective as green tea catechins.

White, green, black, oolong teas all come from the same plant Camellia Sinensis and all contain the same active compounds Theanine, Caffeine, and flavonoids. Caffeine free teas are herbal teas which don't come from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant.  like Chamomile, Anis, Hibiscus.......

Both black and green teas naturally come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference is in how the tea leaves are handled and dried - black tea leaves are crushed, exposed to the air and dried, whilst green tea leaves are heated straight after harvesting and dried.

Green and Black Tea leaves naturally contain substances such as flavonoids, theanine, caffeine and fluoride, but in differing quantities. 

Green tea leaves are high in flavonoids called catechins, which give green tea it’s vibrant colour.  Black tea leaves are rich in flavonoids called, thearubigins and theaflavins, which give black tea it’s red/brown colour.

Both are excellent sources of hydration and can be regularly consumed as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Both green and black tea have similar benefits on heart health.

Black tea has also been shown to improve concentration and alertness.  Long-term consumption of catechin-rich green tea helps reduce body weight and fat around the waist.  The latter evidence has been collected for Asians, more research is needed for Western populations.

Flavonoids and other molocules in tea are believed to bind to milk proteins and therefore become less available to the body.

BUT overall the majority of human studies show that the addition of milk (up to 25% volume) does not affect flavonoid bioavailability but may delay  uptake.

Adding sugar to tea does not influence absorption of flavonoids, but would increase its calorie content and also presents a risk for dental health

Both Green tea and black tea come from the same plant Camellia Sinensis. They contain similar amounts of caffeine. The amount found in a typical 200ml cup of Green or Black tea is around 40-50mg which is around half the amount found in filtered coffee.

 A staple made out of aluminium does not dissolve in tea. The tea staple is made from aluminium which is coated with a tough layer of shiny aluminium oxide and tea is not acidic enough to dissolve either this oxide layer or aluminium itself.  Additionally, scientific investigations conducted globally into the rise in aluminium levels in tea have been done using aluminium cookware.  In each case, the amount of aluminium measured in the brewed tea was not significantly higher than in tea brewed in steel vessels. If the aluminium level in tea does not increase when it is prepared in an aluminium vessel there is no likelihood that a small staple will expose a tea drinker to increased aluminium levels.  

More conclusive evidence confirming that there is no detectable migration for aluminium staples to the product thus proving that the aluminium used in the tea bags not bringing about an unacceptable change in the composition of the tea is provided by a migration test of the aluminium staples done by the Nehring Institute, Germany, which supplies staples to the Jebel Ali Tea Factory.

For most people, drinking tea with meals will have no impact on iron status.

  • According to several studies, there is no evidence of increased iron deficiency amongst regular tea drinkers**.

    Iron in the diet is present in two different forms - the iron present in cereal and vegetables differs from the iron present in animal foods.

    Animal sources of iron include foods such as red meat, offal, egg yolks.  Absorption of this type of iron (haem) is not affected by tea consumption.

    Plant sources of iron include dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, beans and pulses. Absorption of this type of iron (non-haem) can be slightly reduced by tea consumption. 

  • So only for vegetarians, children and patients suffering for anaemia it is advised to consume tea apart from mealtimes.
