Health Benefits of Tea

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but what if you can not find an apple? Simple drink tea. Mmm.. not so apt one. Anyway what I was trying to tell was that drinking tea is not that bad as it is thought to be.

I can already hear cheers from all the tea lovers. Well, its true and I have some valid reasons to support it as well. But before going in those details I would like to ask you one question.

How many types of tea are there apart from Green and Black? I knew these would be the words that will spring out of your head. Any guesses?

Well let me take the responsibility of enlightening you on this. There are four main types of tea- Green Tea, Black Tea, White Tea and Oolong Tea.

Health benefits of tea:

Given below are some reasons to enjoy your cup of tea.

•    Tea contains antioxidants which protect our bodies from the negative effects of pollution.
•    The level of caffeine in a cup of tea is comparatively lesser than in a cup of coffee.
•    Tea in itself does not have calories. So until to decide to add sweeteners or milk in your cup of tea it is a top calorie-free drink.
