We all love the aroma of various flavors of tea and holding onto a hot tea mug which warm our hands on a cold winter morning. We also know that tea have some health benefits, but we do not know exactly what they are. So I'm going tell you about some health benefits of tea, here are the general benefits of tea:

1. Tea contains antioxidants
2. Tea has less caffeine than coffee
A cup of coffee contains around 135 mg caffeine whereas tea contains only 30 to 40 mg per cup.
3. Tea is good for your heart and brain
Tea keeps your arteries smooth and clot-free and it may reduce the risk of fatal heart attack by 70 percent in people who drink at least two to three cups of black tea daily.
4. Tea protects your bones
This is because tea's many beneficial phytochemicals.
5. Tea boosts your immune defenses
6. Tea protects against cancer
The antioxidants, polyphenols, found in tea may have cancer-fighting effects. Tea has also potential protective effects against cancer.
7. Tea increases your metabolism
Green tea has been shown to actually increase metabolic rate so that you can burn 70 to 80 additional calories by drinking just five cups of green tea per day.
