Modern science confirms what monks, physicians and generations of other tea drinkers have known for thousands of years: a multitude of health benefits come from regular tea drinking. We now understand that these benefits are due to the specific combinations of vitamins, minerals and other vital chemical compounds in tea.While most research has focused on green teas, recent studies also substantiate the considerable benefits from white, black and oolong teas as well as other infusions like rooibos, honeybush and yerba mate.
Many health professionals now advocate drinking 3 - 5 cups of tea daily, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
