Did you know?
Habitual consumption of tea can reduce the likelihood of developing hypertension (high blood pressure). A recent study from the Department of Family Medicine at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan involving 1507 subjects indicates drinking .5 to 2.5 cups a day of moderate strength green or oo-long tea results in a 46% decrease in the prevalence of hypertension and a 65% reduction for those who consume 2.5 or more cups daily.
