From time immemorial, tea is the drink of the kings. It is soft, sober, exhilarating, and filled with energy. All of those qualities symbolize it to be the drink of the kings. However, is it the only symbol giving it such a unique place? There are mythical stories about this hot beverage being used to do great miracles.

The use of tea as life saving medicine is also well known. But when we connect such words they make it more than just an energy drink, We need proof of what makes tea so delicious and health concerning at the same time. So let us look at some of those reasons, which are based on undeniable scientific facts.

Unlike any other energy drink, the brew does not contain caffeine. Caffeine even if, it is a great stimulant for the body, has only instantaneous effects but in the long run harms our body. So a drink which does the same functions but without the bad part is always the best. The brew is also seen to act as stress reliever. Talking of the heart, where as other energy drinks make our heart weak, tea makes it strong. It cleans our blood vessels from the toxic chemicals deposited over time. In addition, make them new and well working.

Tea being a very light drink can only benefit you when you have it regularly. Having excessive in one day can also be bad. So be patient, and have it regularly.
