There’s more to tea..

It’s always interesting to read that tea is more than ‘just’ a refreshing drink.  There have long been studies and beliefs that tea has medicinal qualities too.
These range from weight loss through to beneficial effects for many diseases and conditions.

Two recent articles we’ve seen:

In Australia, it was found that drinking three to four cups per day gave a 20 – 25% reduction in the risk of Type 2 Diabetes. This study concluded that it doesn’t matter if the tea is green or black. Other compounds in the tea including magnesium and high levels of antioxidants may be responsible.

Another sudy in the USA found that an extract taken from green tea can reduce levels of cancer cells in the blood of leukemia patients and may even slow progression of the disease.

We’ve got 50 different green teas from China, Japan, Taiwan and the other major tea growing areas. Take a look here on our website: http://www.cupoftea.uk.com/categories/7/green-teas
