The scientific evidence continues to mount about the numerous health benefits of drinking tea. Hundreds of recent scientific research studies have found many potential health attributes associated with tea.

Over the past 15 years, research has found that drinking black, green or oolong tea may offer some protection from cardiovascular disease and cancer, lead to reduced risk of kidney stones, and strengthen bones, teeth and the immune system.

“There is unequivocal evidence that tea as a lifestyle factor can impact health. Drinking tea should be considered part of a healthy lifestyle.”

Dr. Carol Greenwood, Professor of Nutritional Sciences
at the University of Toronto
