Study: Drinking Black Tea May lower Mortality Risk


According to the United Nations, tea is the second most consumed drink in the world, after water. Black tea is the most common in the United States and the United Kingdom, and green tea, fruit, jasmine tea, and herbal teas have been more popular in other countries.

According to a study, both black and green tea come from the plant known as Camellia sinensis, and the difference between them is how the plants are processed after picking. Both the teas are picked, bruised, wilted, and rolled before drying, and the black tea is then oxidized by exposing the tea to the air for some time.

According to the researchers, there are many health benefits to different teas. They suggest that green tea has more health benefits, while others are advocating the health qualities of black tea, and in both cases, the antioxidants seem to be the key.

According to the study, drinking two or more cups of black tea daily may decrease the mortality from all the leading causes of death by around 12 percent.
