Why is tea drinking good for health?
Tea is loaded with antioxidants that cleanse the body of free radicals, which damage good cells and cause cancer. Studies show drinking 2-5 cups of tea daily can reduce cholesterol, lower blood sugar level that can lead to diabetes, can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke as well as reduce the risk of colon and other cancers linked to our digestive system. In addition, fresh brewed tea contains fluoride for strong bones, vitamin B and has less than 1 calorie per serving.

Is green tea better than black tea?
All tea; white, green, oolong, and black are healthy. Green tea was the first tea studied because scientist wondered why there was 0-rate of esophagus and stomach cancer in Shizuoka, Japan. They discovered residents of Shizuoka drank more green tea compared to other Japanese citizens because Shizuoka is where most Japanese tea is gown. US and UK researchers conclude black tea is also a potent anti-cancer fighter.

What about tea in cans or bottles?
Look for fresh-brewed and lightly sweetened or unsweetened tea in cans or bottles.Canned and bottled teas are convenient but word to the wise, these products could be sugar laden. For example, a popular selling bottled tea has 64 grams of sugar per container. That's the equivalent of 32 packets of sugar. You wouldn't think about eating 32 packets of sugar in one sitting. So, why drink that much sugar?
Canned or bottled teas are often made from tea powder which does not contain the antioxidants found in fresh brewed tea. They may also contain preservatives to extend shelf life. Herbal teas are usually designed with a specific function in mind but do not necessarily contain high levels of antioxidants.

Does tea has more caffeine than coffee?
A cup of black tea has about one-third the caffeine of an equal portion of drip coffee. Green tea, processed less than black tea, has even less caffeine. Green tea usually contains less caffeine than cola drinks and chocolate.What are some ways to reduce the caffeine in my tea besides drinking herbals or decaffs?

  1. Brew full-leaf teas instead of teabags. Full-leaf teas release caffeine more slower than teabags.
  2. A "hot water bath" will reduce the caffeine in hot tea. Steep the leaves for 30-45 seconds then throw away the first cup/ pot. Use the same leaves for a caffeine-reduced second cup/pot.
  3. Cold-brewed iced tea using tap water is much lower in caffeine compared to tea brewed with hot water.
  4. Drink Green teas because caffeine content is lower that other teas.
