Aside from water, tea is the second-most consumed beverage in the world. Some believe that the answers to life’s most difficult questions can be found in a cup of tea. One thing’s for certain: tea is beneficial to our health.
The Chinese have known about the medicinal effects of tea since ancient times, but recent medical studies in the West have concluded that tea offers health benefits due to its being a good source of flavanoids, a group of compounds that contain powerful antioxidants. Studies suggest that four cups of tea per day could help protect the human body against the damaging effect of free radicals.
These findings are starting to get the attention of the health-conscious mainstream in the United States, and trendy tea houses are beginning to pop up in metro areas throughout the country. And we’re not talking about just the white-glove variety set up in Victorian houses. Tea houses are going modern, urban–and they’re attracting a younger set.
