Is green tea actually good for you?

It's the only herbal tea I like. Do you drink it?

Causes cancer.

Green tea isn’t herbal tea, it’s actual tea. It is supposed to be good for you.

I drink it occasionally and yes, it's actually good for you. It contains polyphenol antioxidants, of which a catechin called EGCG is particularly beneficial.

I'm more of a yerba mate tea fan, personally, although I drink lots of nettle tea as well.

Not according to 19th century horror writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu, who wrote a short story about it.

It has a lot of theophylline for those of us with asthma, and can be grown easily. It gives me a headache for some reason, so I stick with black tea

R7 is correct. Camellia sinensis is the plant species name for the type of tea being discussed. It is processed with varying levels of oxidation with black tea being the most oxidized and green being the least. I hate the flavor and aroma of the partially oxidized versions such as oolong. The best tea comes from the subspecies assamica, it’s super strong
