A few weeks ago I tweeted a link (http://bit.ly/9sNHJJ) to the ‘Top 10 Health Benefits of Drinking Tea’. I also asked for some user recommendations on where to start as I currently don’t drink any kind of hot beverages. I got some great suggestions and have listed them below if anyone wants to try them too. (Perhaps I’m finally living up to my British roots by becoming a tea boffin? Although, you won’t see any English Breakfast here!) Anyway, I haven’t chipped away at the list much yet, but have been enjoying some chai and green here and there. One of the indirect health benefits of adopting a tea tongue, is that when I now meet someone for ‘coffee’ in the morning I don’t have to opt for a sugary fizzy drink or juice. Thank you to everyone who @replied me.
