I ask this because hubby loves tea and love to drink most of the time beside coffee in the morning. Lots of people said tea is a healthy drink and you should not worry drinking it. Tea was originate din Southeast Asia. This tea plants was introduced more than 52 countries. This are huge and i know this is also not new to you my dear readers. This tea contains of catechins, a type of antioxidant. Its not only fruits that have antioxidants but also this tea. The four basic types of true tea are black tea, oolong tea, green tea, and white tea. Tea is one of the most widely-consumed beverages in the world, second only to water. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent flavor. It has almost no carbohydrates, fat, or protein. Tea is a natural source of the amino acid theanine, methylxanthines such as caffeine and theobromine, and polyphenolic antioxidant catechins (often referred to as tannins).
