If you already liked tea before reading this post, you will like it even more. If it was not very close, I doubt that there will be a desire to try a cup with this drink so healthy and tasty. These are some of the numerous health benefits of tea:
With tea, I am awake and relaxed. All this because of theine, which acts more smoothly in the body (the body takes 15 to 20 minutes to absorb it). In this slow absorption process of the central nervous system, our senses are in tune and we stay awake. The elimination of this effect is also gradual.
In addition, you can choose to have tea with more or less theine. White tea and green tea have less of this substance. Black tea has the most, but still, a cup of black tea has 2 times less theine / caffeine than a cup of coffee (and a cup of green tea, up to 8 times less). If you prefer a tea without theine, you can choose from several infusions, such as chamomile, lemon grass, rooibos etc.
