Benefit of drinking Black and Green Teas!

I recently questioned the benefit of drinking tea PERIOD because tea makes me unbelievably dehydrated. I typically only want tea when I’m not feeling my best, ooooooor to have a laugh by aggravating my best friend by drinking his tea, simply because it’s there. LOL

I researched this, and came across an article from the WebMD…here is an excerpt (article title is “Health Tip: Try Tea for a Healthy Resolution):

“For disease-fighting antioxidants, tea is hard to beat. Black tea and green tea have the most health-boosting effects, but green tea seems to be especially beneficial.

Some research suggests that these teas may help:

Lower cholesterol when you eat a heart-healthy diet
Improve blood vessel and heart health
Reduce damage to DNA caused by smoking
Reduce the risk of some cancers…”

Those were just a few of the benefits that I found when browsing through several articles! My next purchase? This here!
