This gourmet tea is best prepared the way the British have always loved their morning tea, with milk and plenty of sweetener to taste. This tea has a full body and is richly robust. Once a black tea has been mixed with milk experience the change in aroma of the delicious scent of hot buttered toast and honey. The best brew after breakfast.
Health Benefits: Because of its antioxidant content, black tea has been shown to aid in reducing the risk of overall heart disease. A 2012 publication of “Preventive Medicine” included a study on the effects of black tea on cardiovascular risk factors. Adults taking a 200-milliliter infusion of black tea each day for 12 weeks showed lowered risk of developing cardiovascular disease, based on cholesterol and blood glucose levels. Blood glucose levels, as well as low-density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels, were significantly lowered. High-density cholesterol levels, also known as “good” cholesterol, were raised. HDL cholesterol helps your body get rid of LDL cholesterol, improving the health of your arterial walls. Researchers concluded that black tea, when consumed regularly as part of a normal diet, reduces several risk factors for heart disease and improves overall antioxidant status.
