Green tea or black tea?

Depending on the country, people prefer to consume black tea or green tea.

In Western Europe countries, people prefer generally the black tea, flavored or not with other plants (such as bergamot, etc.), fermented or semi-fermented, whose taste is stronger than the green tea's one, and whose stimulating effects are close to coffee's one.

In some countries of Asia and especially in Japan, it is the green tea that prevails; besides in this country, people usually also eat the green tea leaves, they are not consumed only in infusion.
