Take a Break for Tea and Its Health Benefits

Take a Break for Tea and Its Health Benefits

When it comes to Sunday nights in January, many of us are glued to PBS watching the Crawleys and their drama inside their Yorkshire estate.

Whether you’re a Lady Edith or a Dowager Countess of Grantham, you don’t have to be a lord or lady of Downton Abbey to enjoy tea time. And you don’t have to be on the other side of the pond either.

January is National Hot Tea Month in America, and everywhere people are enjoying the taste and the health benefits of tea time.

Adding tea to your diet is easy and inexpensive, may aid in the ongoing battle of the bulge and may increase your body’s immunity to colds and the flu (which we could all use right about now). Tea is a natural source of antioxidants and caffeine, and may help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Tea actually contains fluoride and tannins that may keep plaque at bay, and it is also a naturally calorie and sugar free drink.

Crumpets optional.
