There are 3 main varieties — green, black, and oolong. The difference is in how the teas are processed. Green reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols.
Antioxidants are substances that fight free radicals (free radicals are damaging compounds in the body that change cells, damage DNA, and even cause cell death).
