Benefits of tea
Tea is the dried leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, a small tree in the Theaceae family.
This plant contains biochemical compounds called polyphenols, which include flavonoids. The latter are also found in fruits and vegetables and are antioxidants, which prevents the degeneration of cells, responsible for more than 50 diseases.
All tea comes from the same plant and its hybrids, the difference lies only in the selection of leaves and treatment. The nearly 3,000 varieties that exist all over the world differ in flavour and characteristics depending on the geographical area of origin, atmospheric conditions, quality, and even the altitude at which it is produced.
Studies indicate that regular consumption of tea inhibits the agglomeration of blood platelets, therefore avoiding dangerous blood clots responsible for the majority of heart attacks and vascular problems. Tea is also known to be a natural inhibitor of some types of cancer, including those that affect the respiratory and digestive tracks, as well as the skin.
