According to the research, tea was found to had a higher chance of staving off cardiovascular diseases including coronary heart disease, strokes, peripheral arterial disease and aortic disease.
“Regular tea drinkers were 20 percent less likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those who didn’t drink tea.

“Habitual tea drinkers lived for 15 months extra on average and enjoyed an extra 17 months without any cardiovascular disease compared with non-drinkers of tea,” read the study in part.

The study sampled 1,047 individuals under a new campaign identified as Take 5 where 32 per cent of tea consumers believed that it is grown in the UK. A majority of tea consumed in UK is imported from Kenya.

“In a large review, which combined 13 cohort and cross-sectional analyses, 30 laboratory studies and 13 clinical trials, regular tea consumption was associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

“The laboratory and clinical trials supported the protective effects of tea and its bioactive compounds against heart issues,” stated TAP dietitian Doctor Carrie Ruxton.
