You can reduce your risk of heart disease by drinking three or more cups of black tea a day, a new study has found. Tea drinking can also protect against tooth plaque and can help strengthen bones.
Dr Carrie Buxton of King’s College London, and one of the members of the research team, said: “Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants, so it’s got two things going for it.”
Black tea contains polyphenol antioxidants, which are also found in foods and plants.
Its one downside is that it can reduce the absorption of iron from food, so people with anemia should avoid drinking tea around mealtimes.

I refuse to believe that adding milk eliminates ALL the benefits. It must still strengthen bones if you're adding more calcium. No, tea without milk simply doesn't work. And that's that!
I believe that milk perverts the flavor of good tea. I enjoy my cuppa with a bit sugar and maybe some lemon. So being on the other side of the tea drinking opinion, I can say that I know that I am gaining the full benefit from my tea.
