Camellia sinensis is the plant to make tea - black and green

It is imperative that when making green tea that you do not use boiling water to steep it in, the water should be just shy of boiling to keep it's antioxidant properties.

The reason black tea doesn't have the same properties, regardless of being from the same plant, is that black tea has been oxidized and in china is actually known as red tea. We know it as the tea we generally use for iced tea here in the US. You steep it with boiling water because most of the antioxidant properties are removed with the oxidation.
