Health Benefits of Black Tea

If you're looking for a health conscious alternative to drinking coffee every day, black tea might be just what you need.


Black tea naturally contains caffeine, so you get a nice energy boost when you drink it. But it also includes L-theanine, a non-protein amino acid that promotes relaxation by reducing stress and anxiety levels. That means you get the boost without the buzzy jitters. Tea has been shown to be cardioprotective and abel to reduce LDL (the “bad” cholesterol), to reduce the risk of stroke, high blood pressure, and the onset of some cancers. It's beneficial for diabetics and can support the body’s natural ability to metabolize sugar.
