Liquid Of Life - The Benefits Of Black Tea

What is black tea?

Black tea is made from the plant Camellia Sinensis where green 
tea also originates. Black tea goes through a very different 
fermenting process than green tea called oxidation; the leaves 
are left to breathe in moist oxygen.
The tea is then rolled and heated and dried out and when the 
process is completed it is black in colour. The end result is a potent 
caffeine drink that has all kinds of health benefits and many drink 
it as an alternative medicine. Black tea is becoming more and more 
popular as it has several components that can benefit general 
well-being as well as aid with some common medical complaints. 
Many supermarket brands like Earl Grey or Darjeeling are made from 
black tea and they have a very powerful and pungent taste. Tea 
drinking is an ancient art in some countries and its part and parcel 
of a healthy every day life.

Looking after your teeth

A study carried out by the Tea Trade Health Research Association, 
found that consumption of black tea can help prevent the 
formulation of plaque on the enamel of the teeth
Plaque is a leading factor in the development of gum disease, 
a prevalent trouble spot for many.
Gum disease causes teeth to loosen and eventually fall out so 
keeping them in good condition is paramount. Oral hygiene can 
really benefit from doses of black tea because it staves off 
bacteria from getting into the teeth which in turn causes 
cavities. There are Polyphenols in the composition of black 
tea and they actively kill bacteria enzymes which protects 
the enamel from becoming infected and rotting. Considering 
untreated tooth-decay can lead to widespread gum disease 
and the loss of all teeth, partaking of a few cups of black tea 
and sticking to a good oral care regime may help to ward off 
problems later on.

Stress and strain

Herbal teas are renowned for their soothing and calming qualities, 
but not many people know how good black tea can be when 
consumed in moderate quantities. The Chinese call black tea 
Hong Cha, and they've been using it for forever and a day as an 
aid for anxiety and stress.
Black tea contains the amino acid L-theanine, which is 
renowned for its relaxation properties and it's said to help 
with poor concentration too. Because it has a high concentrate of 
caffeine it helps blood circulation without increasing the heartbeat. 
This has a duel-effect on the body; it releases good energy and 
promotes a sense of harmony and balance. Tannins found in 
black tea are great for the immune system and they promote 
healthy working digestive systems all which restore the body to 
its natural peaceful state.

Reducing risk of major illness

Black tea can be used as a preventative medicine as well as an 
alternative one. The natural phytochemicals can produce strong, 
healthy bone structure and help ease conditions like arthritis and 
There's also evidence to suggest that people who regularly drink 
black tea have 70% less chance of developing diabetes.Polyphenols 
which are found in black tea are natural antioxidants which 
are capable of ridding the body of toxic chemicals
These same antioxidants are said to prevent and reduce some 
types of cancers although research is still in its infant stages. 
There have also been findings that support the theory that black 
tea can reduce the risk of heart diseaseand the possibility of strokes
When one takes all these health benefits into account, it's hard to 
understand why so many of us don't drink black tea more regularly.
