Black Tea

Tea is the second most consumed beverage after water around the world. Did you know that every variety of tea comes from the same plant? Camellia Sinesis. The different methods used to harvest and process the raw ingredient produces different types of tea. Today we'll take a look at Black Tea!

Black Tea is popular around the world and easy to obtain at your local grocery store. It is often blended with English Breakfast and Earl Grey to enhance the flavor and aroma.

Black tea is also known for its caffeine content as it contains more caffeine than green or white tea. Yet, the caffeine content in Black Tea is far less as compared to coffee.

Black tea offers a variety of health benefits because it contains antioxidants and compounds that can help your body to reduce inflammation. Today we'll take a look at two surprising benefits of drinking Black Tea!

1. Lowers Blood Pressure

A small study (conducted on 19 subjects) reported that black tea lowered blood pressure and increased arterial flexibility compared to the placebo. The authors suggested that regular tea consumption can have cardioprotective effects.
