Adding Milk To TEA Destroys It’s Antioxidants


“The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort and refinement.” – Arthur Gray, Little Tea Book

The trend is slowly changing and if I had to pick one beverage among so many, I would probably take a nice cup of tea. In today’s life, where everyone is so stressed and always on the run, a cup of tea always acts like a stress buster.

The easiest way to derive the health benefits of tea is to drink it, but drink it right. Research suggests that adding milk to tea destroys it’s antioxidants and many healthful properties. The culprits in milk is a group of proteins called caseins that interact with tea, decreasing the concentration of catechin – a type of disease-fighting flavonoid and antioxidant, which is key to tea’s health benefits.

So, drink smart and add lemon to your tea and let this healthiest drink on the planet heal you from your brain to your belly.
