Scientists in Iran reported that daily consumption of black tea was ‘significantly’ associated with a lower risk of coronary problems, while a second study published in the journal “Appetite” has found that black tea may improve attention and alertness.
“Drinking more than three cups of black tea each day” was associated with a significant reduction in risk of coronary artery disease in the first study, while in the second, “just two cups of black tea a day improved the ability to focus attention on the task in hand”, said Dr Carrie Ruxton of the Tea Advisory Panel.
