If you've yet to "go green" why not try Matcha, Sencha, Gyokuro from Japan? Or you could try a flavored variety from China like Mint Green Tea or Organic Green Pekoe, a mild green tea with an amazing aroma and sweet finish.
Green teas all have different health benefits and contain different levels of caffeine. The primary reason why green tea is believed to have greater health benefits than black tea is due to the way the leaves are processed. Green tea leaves are picked and immediately processed to minimize oxidization; this means they aren't allowed to ferment like black tea. That's why green tea retains more antioxidants.
Some of the purported health benefits of green tea remain unproven (medically speaking), although thousands of years of Chinese and Japanese culture may argue differently. So please do your own research or consult with your doctor before starting any new dietary regimen, or if you want to use green tea for medicinal purposes.
