Just my cup of tea

According to new research from researchers at the University of Western Australia, drinking just three cups of tea a day can protect against heart attacks and stroke.  Drinking either black or green tea cuts the build-up of plaque in the arteries - a combination of dangerous fat and cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart problems by 11 per cent. Interestingly they found that the flavonoid content of black tea is equal to that of green tea, so that's one in the eye for all those green tea drinkers who shake their heads when offered a proper cuppa, and luckily for me adding milk to tea doesn’t affect the absorption of said flavonoids.
