With the exception of herbal teas, all teas come from the same plant -- Camellia sinensis. Although the flavor and color of black tea is typically more robust than green or white tea, the only significant difference between them is the fermentation process. Because black teas like Ceylon, Chai, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Assam, Lapsang Souchong and Oolong, for example, are permitted to ferment longer, they have a bolder flavor, which can be tempered with honey and lemon or a splash of milk. Because green and white teas do not undergo the same fermentation process before drying, the catechin content of the leaves is preserved. This means that green and white teas contain more of the health giving agents known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
