Green tea has received much attention for its various health benefits, but recent research commissioned by the Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) draws more attention to its more commonly known relative – black tea.
In a research paper already scheduled for publication, a spokesperson from the TAP dietician Dr. Carry Ruxton announced that black tea has some impressive health-promoting properties of its own. According to Ruxton, the flavonoids found in black tea have “potent antibacterial properties.”
This is good news for lovers of black tea since it probably means that their favorite drink is likely to improve their oral hygiene as well as aid in the prevention of tooth decay.
The papers further claims that black tea may yield cardioprotective and cancer fighting effects, although more research is called for by Ruxton, since existing human studies are still inconclusive.
