8 Reasons Why You Should Drink More Tea

1. Tea is really good for you.

See this infographic for the ways in which herbal teas and tisanes can help fight various sicknesses and allergies. Green tea, in particular, boosts the immune system and, according to one study, might make your bones stronger.

2. Tea hydrates your body as much as drinking water does.

If it doesn’t contain caffeine, tea can be counted toward your recommended daily intake of water. The antioxidants in tea are an added bonus.

 3. Tea relaxes and calms the body.

ea leaves contain an amino acid called theanine that is associated with reducing mental and physical stress and improving cognition. So there’s some scientific background to what we already know – that a tea break can turn around a bad day, improve one’s mood, and put one’s worries into better perspective.
