The miracle of tea

Having a ‘cuppa’ in order to relax is not just a placebo. Research by University College London has shown that those who drink tea are likely to recover a lot quicker from stress than those who don’t. 

Black tea has been shown to cut levels of the stress hormone cortisol in their blood. After a stressful day regular tea-drinkers are therefore hormonally more resistant to stress than non-tea-drinkers.

 

If that wasn’t a big enough incentive, the study also found that tea-drinkers had a lower risk of blood clotting and heart attacks!
