English Breakfast Tea Benefits

Min Read | August 27, 2018

Restorative and pleasing to the palate, English breakfast tea is the traditional way to start the morning in the UK, although it may be enjoyed in the afternoon and evening (and all around the world) as well. The health benefits of English breakfast tea have been demonstrated time and again through peer-reviewed research, making it both a flavorful and wise way to begin the day. As a result, those who partake in it enjoy a host of short-term and far-reaching perks.

Slowing Down the Clock

Like other black teas, English breakfast tea contains natural antioxidants called flavonoids. According to one well-respected theory, antioxidants may slow the signs of aging by fighting off free radicals in the human body.

English Breakfast tea contains a modest amount of caffeine. Ingested in moderation, caffeine can demonstrably improve certain aspects of memory and learning. Since caffeine is a stimulant, it is best taken moderately; black tea has half the caffeine of coffee, which means black tea can act as a gentler way to help us wake up in the morning. Fortunately, English Breakfast tea is also known for its smooth, full-bodied flavor with floral undertones, pairing well with a full English breakfast or a simple piece of toast.

Healthier Bones And Blood

Without milk or natural sweeteners, English breakfast tea contains almost no calories and zero sugar, making it an ideal choice for those with diabetes and anyone keeping an eye on daily caloric intake. It also contains vitamin B, which helps the body create new red blood cells, a vital component for good health. The phosphorus and magnesium found in English breakfast tea are important for strong, resilient bones.

The circulatory effects of English Breakfast tea deserve special mention.

Over time, relaxation and stress reduction benefits the entire body. From a boosted immune system to clearer thinking and even slower signs of aging, an ongoing state of calm lends itself to overall wellness in a number of ways. Beginning the day with a cup of English breakfast tea instead of coffee is a wise way to reduce our caffeine intake without giving up a beloved morning ritual.

Combating Cancer And Kidney Stones

Although more research is needed, English breakfast tea may help fight cancer. Researchers from Rutgers University published a study on the properties of TF-2, a chemical in black tea that can induce cancer cells to self-destruct without harming normal cells in the process. Studies are ongoing, but early findings are promising.

For centuries, people have appreciated the gently invigorating experience of drinking English breakfast tea. Thanks to modern medical science, it becomes ever clearer just how deeply tea affects the human mind and body.
