3. Lowers High Cholesterol

Research conducted by the American Heart Association concluded that black tea was associated with slower age-related decreases in HDL-C concentrations which is beneficial in reducing bad cholesterol, thus lowering the risk of heart strokes. People who drink 3-4 cups a day seems to be at a lower risk than people who consumed none at all. [1]

4. Oral Health

This is due to the polyphenol content that kill bacteria and the enzymes they create which bind plaque to the tooth enamel.
