Tea has nutritional properties and is
rich in vitamins and minerals. What's more, being nature's drink, Tea
maintains the body balance apart from providing nutrition.
Tea drinking is reputed to:
- Increase blood flow to all
parts of the body
- Stimulate clear thinking
and mental alertness
- Speed the elimination of
alcohol and other harmful substances (fats and nicotine, for example) from
the bodily organs.
Doctors therefore recommend that it
is vital we drink at least 1.5 litres of fluid a day to prevent
dehydration. Tea also contains caffeine, but much less than coffee and
therefore any dehydration from tea is very unlikely. In fact doctors
recommend weak cold tea for oral rehydration.
As the world's most popular drink,
tea makes a significant contribution to the nationís fluid intake. In the
Tea Councilís Healthy Drinks Survey in UK, tea was considered the best
value-for-money drink by 58 percent.
Taken on its own, tea has no
calories. Taken with milk, the average daily tea consumption provides
approximately 16 per cent of the recommended daily amount of calcium and
significant amounts of folic acid, riboflavin (B2) and vitamin B6.
