I Knew My Tea Habit Was Healthy

Lynne Kiesling

Tea is healthier to drink than water, due to the flavonoids in tea:

These polyphenol antioxidants are found in many foods and plants, including tea leaves, and have been shown to help prevent cell damage. …

Other health benefits seen included protection against tooth plaque and potentially tooth decay, plus bone strengthening.

This from a new UK study. Furthermore, even though tea is caffeinated, its net effect still produces hydration. So it replaces fluids and has antioxidants.

I think I’ll go have another cup!

  1. Dave,

    Thanks for the tip! I haven’t tried them before, but their selection of Assam (my favorite!) looks great. I’ll give them a try.
