Tea Lovers Rejoice

 

 

Tea consumption is on the rise!

According to the World Tea Expo, U.S. tea sales are expected to grow from $6 billion in 2005 to $10 billion by 2010. The reason being the great health benefits.

Tea, and especially green tea, has been claimed to aid a multitude of illnesses from helping the overweight to lose weight, prevent cavities, lower cholesterol, prevent arthritis, control diabetes, lowers blood pressure, kills the flu virus and even helps in preventing AIDS, plus many more health benefits.

Coffee lovers don't have to give up their coffee though as coffee has many health benefits as well.

Coffee and tea both contain antioxidants that are credited for their health giving benefits.
