• Totally tea

    With us it’s never been away, but apparently the great British brew is experiencing a revival. Good news indeed.

    It’s not just the nation’s favourite beverage, it’s good for your health as well apparently.

    Researchers say tea includes an antioxidant called polyphenols and, also, has phytochemicals. Here are six of the best reasons to have a cuppa.

    • Drinking tea could help reduce the risk of a heart attack.
    • The antioxidants in tea may help protect against cancers.
    • Tea is hydrating even with the caffeine content.
    • Drinking tea is linked with a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease.
    • Tea could keep waist circumference in check as low as you stay away from the cake and biscuits that normally go with it of course!
    • Tea might be effective in the prevention and treatment of neurological diseases. 

    Need some help with your tea brewing? 

    • Use one tea bag or rounded teaspoon of tea per cup required.
    • Always use fresh water and make sure it is boiling.
    • Boil the water just once or you’ll reduce the oxygen in it and this affects the flavour.
    • Brew for three/four minutes.
    • Milk in last if you’re using a good quality china cup.
