Tea has been the favorite drink of most of the people for centuries, not only because the taste is good and the aroma is soothing but also because of the health benefits people can get from it. But before dwelling on your tea make sure that it is actually a “tea.” Most people don’t know that there are only four varieties of teas: green, black, white, and oolong. These varieties are all made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, anything else is just an infusion of a different plant and isn’t technically tea. The difference of these four tea types from each other is the way the leaves are prepared and how mature they are.
All these four varieties of teas have serious health benefits for us because of the health properties they contain including polyphenols, a kind of antioxidant that protects cells from the DNA damages. Studies also shows that polyphenols found in tea have a cancer-fighting effects and adding it in your daily routine would help protect the body against cancer. Antioxidants also protect body from the depredation of growing old and the effects of pollution thus slowing down the aging process. Teas also reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
