Tea Tidbit

Researchers at Harvard University found that drinking five cups of black tea a day quadrupled the body's immune defense system after two weeks, probably because of theanine. Tea also contains catechins, including ECGC, which act like a cleanup crew against free radicals. Grotto suggests drinking one to three cups of black, green or white tea every day.

I wasn't aware of such a study statistic. It's good to know the immune system is that powerfully helped. Also, tea is antimicrobial/antibacterial so it kills germs in the mouth and throat, including those that might otherwise cause colds and flu.
