This new review just published in Nutrition and Food Technology by the Tea Advisory Panel (TAP), investigates how drinking tea offers a host of wellness benefits from childhood to the golden years.
Using the World Health Organisation definition of health and wellness as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”, we reviewed findings from more than 60 different studies to examine how drinking tea contributes to our lives.
The research reveals strong evidence that regular tea drinking improves cardiovascular health, hydration, cognitive function, and metabolic health, with growing data showing an important role for tea in supporting mental wellbeing, weight management, gut health and bone density.
Tea has been consumed for centuries for its relaxing and social benefits. However, research increasingly shows that drinking from childhood to older age offers a range of health and well-being benefits. Studies show that benefits for health and wellbeing are seen at daily intakes of 2-4 cups – and it doesn’t matter whether you choose regular black tea or green tea.
