"Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one." (Ancient Chinese Proverb)
Try some green tea today; studies have shown that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol and inhibits the abnormal formation of blood clots. If thats not enough of a reason to enjoy a cuppa, Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay...
If you don't like the taste, try brewing with peppermint, lemon myrtle, rooibos or whichever tea you do like the taste of. For the best tasting tea, brew for a maximum of 3 minutes.
