Caffeine

On average, a cup of our black tea has about half the caffeine of a cup of coffee. Most health organisations say that 'moderate caffeine consumption' for adults is about 300mg a day. That works out at about six cups of tea.

Green tea, white tea and Oolong tea also contain caffeine. Redbush tea is made from a different plant, so it's naturally caffeine-free.

Calories

Without milk, black tea is both calorie and fat-free. With a splash of low-fat milk, a cup of Twinings tea has about 14 calories.

Hydration

Doctors recommend that we drink between 50-85 fl. oz. of water a day. Lots of liquids can make up this amount: juice, milk, and even tea. That's good news for all our tea lovers.

Antioxidants

You might not have heard of them, but flavonoid antioxidants are naturally present in lots of food, including fruit, vegetables and tea. Along with other antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin A and chlorophyll, flavonoid antioxidants can help to keep cells and tissues healthy.

They do this by mopping up free radicals—atoms or molecules with unpaired electrons. Free radicals are made by all living organisms, but they're also in things like pollution. While we all need free radicals, a build-up in our bodies can damage cells and DNA.
