We're going to be as honest as possible here.  We want you to have the best information available.  We won't make any claim we think is untrue.  If that hurts our sales, so be it.  

Please pay attention, there will be a quiz at the end!

Health Claims

We believe you should drink tea, whether a black tea or a green tea, because it tastes good and makes you happy.  If you need a little caffeine boost but don't want to drink coffee, soda pop or energy drinks, tea makes a tasty substitute.

Here's what we can tell you about tea other than herbals and tisanes.  Tea contains antioxidants called flavonoids.  The most powerful flavonoid in tea appears to be ECGC.  There are people who believe that antioxidants help battle free radicals and therefore tea might be helpful in warding off cancer, heart disease and clogged arteries.  The research is in its infancy so it is not possible to draw firm conclusions.  However, research has shown tea will not hurt you.

Although the benefit claims can be even more spectacular, research on herbal infusions and tisanes has been even less conclusive.  The FDA has released warnings against certain types of ingredients found in herbal blends.  WebMd has a good summary of the benefits of tea.

We looked at a lot of articles and we present here the ones we think might be helpful to those wanting further information.
