It doesn’t matter the time of year or the outside weather, I enjoy a hot cup of tea. I find that a mug of steaming tea helps to wake me up in the morning and relax me right before bed. Plus, drinking tea provides numerous health benefits. A recent study of over 100,000 adults showed that those who regularly drank tea were less likely to develop atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, which is a hardening and narrowing of the arteries and the common cause of heart attacks and strokes. Habitual tea drinkers were shown to be less likely to die prematurely from any cause. Green tea seemed to provide more benefits than black tea. According to the findings, a 50-year-old who drinks tea on a regular basis might develop heart disease a year-and-a-half later or live a year longer than somebody who rarely or never drank tea. This also supports the theory that those who drink tea tend to follow an overall healthier lifestyle. I am extremely health conscientious and am very dedicated to eating properly and physical fitness. I don’t eat meat or smoke and avoid fast foods and empty calories. I work out approximately an hour per day, drink lots of water and make an effort to get plenty of sleep. I don’t like coffee, refuse to drink carbonated beverages and rarely drink alcohol. Other than water, this doesn’t leave a lot of options. It’s helpful that there’s a wide variety of teas. While I normally drink English breakfast, I sometimes treat myself to different flavors, including peach mango, red raspberry, chamomile and cinnamon apple. The tea is so tasty that I don’t need to add sugar or milk.
