Drinking black tea is good for you and your health because black tea contains powerful groups of polyphenols including epigallocatechin gallate, theaflavins, thearubigins, an amino acid L-theanine, and several other catechins or flavonoids.

Drinking black tea can  help protect your heart, flush your kidneys, keep your kidneys healthy, prevent cancer etc.

Black Tea is slightly different from regular tea or green tea and the main difference between the teas is that black tea is oxidized and green tea or regular tea is not.

To make black tea, the leaves are first rolled and then exposed to air to trigger the oxidation process.

However green tea is processed to prevent oxidation and thus much lighter in color than black tea.

All tea does come from Camellia sinensis.

Every tea that you make and drink whether it's black, oolong, green, white, or pu-erh tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant.

Green Tea is the best tea to drink for heart health and clogged arteries as the green tea helps to lower bad cholesterol levels.

Other teas are good for your heart and clogged arteries as well such as black tea, ginger tea and rooibos tea.

The reason tea is good for your heart is because tea helps to reduce low-density lipoprotein, or LDL which is bad cholesterol in your arteries.

The tea reduces that bad cholesterol and prevents it from building up in your arteries which is why the tea is good for your heart.

Green Tea is a great source of antioxidants and is one of the healthiest teas to drink.

Green Tea while the healthiest of the teas is not the only healthy tea.

Drinking green tea can promote good kidney health as well and prevent kidney disease when you drink green tea daily.

Drinking green tea daily can also improve your brain function, aid in fat loss, a lower your risk of developing cancer.
