It’s a good day for drinking tea. Scientists have been finding more things out about tea. This time, the more maligned black tea, often said to have much less of the goodie goodness of green tea, has now been shown to be bloody good for you.

If I asked for a cup of tea and was given “a caffeinated placebo identical in taste, but devoid of the active tea ingredients” I think I would definitely become stressed – but, since black tea lowers cortisol levels, I would, after drinking a cup of real tea, rapidly return to my balanced, beneficent, benign, benevolent and bumptious self, and move once again away from the inevitable chest-clutch-keel-over moment.

I think that tea should be put next to defibrillators, along with instructions on how to use proper boiling water and put milk in afterwards.

    Never understood tea, which is a bad thing for an Englishman to say. Coffee – remove that from my life and you’re shutting me down.
