Green Tea Vs Wu-Yi Tea - Which Has The Better Benefits?

Wu-yi (Oolong) and Green Teas contain a large amount of polyphenols. It appears that the health benefit of either tea is the effect of polyphenols.

Green tea is from the same plant as (Camellia sinensis.) as Wu-Yi tea. After the tea leaves are plucked and sorted, they are either steamed or pan fired. Green tea does not go through the fermentation process. Green tea does have less caffeine than Wu-Yi tea.

For green tea, the leaves are processed and dried in such a way as to avoid fermentation. Oolong tea is partially fermented.

Oolong Tea tea has a caffeine content between that of green teas and black teas. The flavor is typically not as robust as black tea or as subtle as green tea, but has its own fragrant subtleties. It can be compared to the taste and aroma of fresh flowers or fruit.

Since both teas contain large amounts of polyphenols, they may have antioxidant, anticancer, and antiviral properties, as well as regulating appetite and weight loss.

Which is better? I drink both Green tea and Wu-yi Tea. Oolong may have a little more caffeine than Green Tea so that may be a determining factor if you are to stay away from caffeine. They both may have polyphenols so both teas may have a profound effect on the way you feel and the benefits to your health and heart.

Always consult with your doctor first before starting a weight loss program or using any products that may affect your health or any disease you may have.
