Since ancient times, millions of tea drinkers around the world have turned to tea to cure ailments ranging from headaches to depression.
Today, scientists around the world are rigorously investigating the healing properties of tea, with studies suggesting that drinking tea can slow down certain cancers, protect against heart disease, help combat premature ageing and promote good health.
It is believed that the antioxidants in tea (polyphenols) scour the human body to locate and neutralise free radicals, which are known to accelerate the ageing process and contribute to serious health problems. Free radicals are unstable cells missing one electron which are thought to have spawned from environmental factors such as pollution, pesticides and smoking.
Drinking tea that is abundant in antioxidants may offset free radical formation and improve general health and well being. Green tea generally has less caffeine than black tea, and slightly more antioxidants per cup, making it the preferred tea of many health professionals.
Remember that not all teas offer the same health benefits. Madura tea is naturally low in caffeine and free of contaminants. We have perfected the art of making exquisite black, green and herbal teas that offer the healing benefits of nature.
