Apart from the lovely taste and aroma, black tea has many health benefits that will make the coffee drinker switch to tea drinking permanently! Here’s a look at four benefits of black tea.

1. Prevent tooth decay
Ingredients found in tea i.e. polyphenols and tannin help prevent bacteria from developing in the mouth since they act as antibiotics. Black tea also contains fluoride which is associated with strong enamel.

2. Cancer Prevention
Black tea is loaded with lots of antioxidants which are scavengers of free radicals hence boosting the immune system and prevention of certain types of cancers e.g. breast, prostrate and stomach cancer.

3. Memory Booster
Black tea contains caffeine which keeps your memory alert. Unlike coffee, the caffeine levels in black tea are a bit lower hence one enjoys the benefits of being alert without the possibilities of heart damage which is associated with a lot of caffeine in the body.

4. Reduction of stress levels
Drinking black tea regularly has been shown to reduce the levels of stress in our bodies by reducing the stress hormone cortisol.
To get the full benefits of black tea one is meant to consume it without milk since milk reduces the benefits that we can get from black tea.
