Greens teas, which come in many variations and flavours, are the fastest growing type of teas in Britain (up 19% in 2014), mainly due to their many perceived health benefits (antioxidants).

Green teas are made from the same plant species as black teas and therefore do contain some caffeine (though less than black teas) – however, as the leaves are not oxidised they retain their green colour and are lighter and more refreshing.

Many complain that green tea tastes bitter. However, good quality green teas that are correctly brewed (don’t use water that is too hot or steep for too long) are sweet, fresh and smooth.
