The Great British Cup of Tea

The Great British Cup of Tea

The love of citizens of the UK of tea is well known.  Tea is indelibly associated with summer afternoons, stiff upper lip and winning a war or two.  In recent years coffee has made an increasing dent in the British "Cuppa" and Latte, Cupuccino are perhaps now more well known than Darjeeling, "India or China?".

That may be about to change.  What the British have known for years, that tea is the very lifeblood of a nation, now seems to have some scientific fact.  Both tea and coffee have anti-oxidant properties, but tea still has the upper hand in L-theanine, an amino acid that boosts immune responses to bacteria, including the ones that cause gut-churning food poisoning. Coffee lacks L-theanine and has shown no anti-bacterial properties in studies.  So it is "one up" to tea.

Thanks to Real Age for this little nugget of trivia.
