Benefits Of Tea........

Its said that tea drinking originated about 3000 years ago when a few leaves accidentally fell into a cup of hot water held by a Chinese emperor. The emperor found the brew tastier than plain water and he subsequently recommended it as a remedy for various ailments. Others claim tea originated in India and became popular with Buddhist monks who helped introduce the calming but refreshing drink throughout Asia. Tea was introduced to Europeans by Turkish traders in the 6th century and it later became an important part of Dutch and British trade.

Today, scientists around the world are rigorously investigating the healing properties of tea, with studies suggesting that drinking tea can slow down certain cancers, protect against heart disease, help combat premature ageing and promote good health. It is believed that the antioxidants in tea (polyphenols) scour the human body to locate and neutralise free radicals, which are known to accelerate the ageing process and contribute to serious health problems. Free radicals are unstable cells missing one electron which are thought to have spawned from environmental factors such as pollution, pesticides and smoking. Drinking tea that is abundant in antioxidants may offset free radical formation and improve general health and well being. Green tea generally has less caffeine than black tea, and slightly more antioxidants per cup, making it the preferred tea of many health professionals.
