BLACK TEA AND YOUR HEART

On the negative side a German study found that the addition of milk to tea cancels out the vascular protective effects of tea.
BLACK TEA AND STRESS
A study has shown that Black Tea can help your body respond and recover from stress.
When a group of tea drinkers were studied, they responded to stress normally as everyone else. The difference was their bodies calmed down much faster than the comparison group of fake tea drinkers.
