Earl Grey Tea Health Benefits

Named after Charles Earl Grey, the British Prime Minister in the 1800’s, Earl Grey tea is present in any English breakfast table, served with or without milk and cream. In addition to its lightly spiced black tea flavour, Earl Grey tea benefits as a stress-reducer, enabling one to feel soothed and comforted after a few sips.

 

It has since been made popular worldwide by the distinct flavour and aroma of its black tea leaves blended with bergamot oil.

 

One of the most popular effects of Earl Grey tea is weight loss due to its citrus extract.

 

In fact some believe citrus fruits even do reduce weight. Calories are either broken down into food for the muscle or released through the natural metabolic process.

 

So instead of cream or sugar, try putting lemon instead. Earl Grey tea has the same energy boosting effects of coffee with less caffeine amount.

 

For a more enhanced effect of the tea, just brew multiple tea bags then add honey instead of sugar and lemon instead of cream.

 

A study published in the January 2003 issue of “International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition” found that laboratory animals given an extract of black tea and fed a high-sugar diet that promotes cavities had about 64 percent fewer cavities than those fed placebo and a regular diet, a benefit the authors attributed to the fluoride content of the tea extract.

 

Black tea is a natural and powerful antioxidant, one that has been used for centuries to help promote good health.

 

One cup per day fights off free radicals in the body, which then help stave off things like infection or cancer.

 

Earl Grey tea has long been believed to improve digestion. In fact, it has been used often as a way to relieve indigestion, nausea and colic. If you have any intestinal problems, Earl Grey might help.
