I love Tea……..

The Tannic Acid in strong Black Tea can tenderize meat in a Stew, as well as reduce the cooking time.Just add 1/2 cup strong Tea to the Stew when you add the other liquid. It will also give your Stew a great brown color.

Drink Green Tea………………

Green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. A 2013 review of many studies found green tea helped prevent a range of heart-related issues, from high blood pressure to congestive heart failure. What’s good for the heart is usually good for the brain; your brain needs healthy blood vessels, too.

My favorite, Green Tea…………

Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any tea. … Green tea is approximately 20-45 percent polyphenols by weight, of which 60-80 percent are catechins such as EGCG. Catechins are antioxidants that are said to help prevent cell damage. These also include improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other impressive benefits……
