If you’re one of those people who drink a cup of tea before starting their day, we have some good news: your morning habit is great for your health. English Breakfast tea is made from a blend of black teas — exactly which teas go into the blend varies from supplier to supplier — all of which offer health benefits. Black tea is a great way to stay hydrated and get some nutrients that benefit your health.
1. Weight loss
If you’re on a mission to get rid of a few pounds or keep your weight as it is, you should avoid drinking liquids like coca cola or other drinks full of sugar. Liquids aren’t going to fill you as food. Lucky you, a lot of our teas are calories free or contain a low amount of calories (maximum 2 calories per cup), so you could drink as much as you desire worry too much.
By moving to black tea, a significant amount of the calories is you are consuming daily is being reduced.
Let’s take an example, a large soda contains 400+ calories. A cup of cola got 100 calories, while a can got 150 calories. Now you can understand how dramatically the number of calories slashed off if you make the switch.
Keep in mind that if you want to get these calorie-free benefits, you’ll have to drink your English breakfast tea as it is. Adding honey, sugar or milk to your tea, means you are adding calories.
2. Healthy Teeth
Tea leaves are a natural and pure source of fluoride, which naturally helps you harden your teeth and make them more resistant against acids. Leaves of black tea are usually older than the green leaves, means the level of fluoride is higher. What we are trying to say here is that black tea is probably the best tea source of fluoride.
3. Healthy Bones
Drinking black tea on a regular basis can improve the strength of your bones and minimize your chance to develop arthritis. All of this thanks to the phytochemicals found in this amazing drink.
4. Better Immune System
You can find alkylamine antigens in black tea, which help to boost the immune response. It also contains tannins, which can fight viruses and keep you protected from stomach flu or any other common viruses.
5. Increased Energy
The low amounts of caffeine in tea can help you enhance your blood flow to the brain without over-stimulating the heart. On top of it, it can stimulate your metabolism and respiratory system, your heart and your kidneys.
Plain Black Tea
Flash new: the healthiest way to drink black tea is plain. But what if you want more flavor? Well, we are well aware that many people would add to their tea their own touch. This is why we created our tea classic and loved blend — Black Tea with Ginger & Black tea with Lemongrass.
