Tea Drinkers Have The Lowest Blood Pressure

"Tea and coffee drinkers have the lowest blood pressure" was the headline in the Daily Mail

Tea has long been heralded as a healthy drink and we were delighted to read in the national press that recent research by Bruno Pannier discovered that the flavonoids found in tea help to relax the blood vessels allowing blood to flow more easily throughout the body and lowering blood pressure. 

Described in the article as 'health boasting-plant compounds', flavonoids are naturally occurring in tea and are believed to be the secret behind the drinks healthy properties. 

Obviously we were also very pleased to also read that 'tea drinkers fared slightly better than coffee drinkers' in the research! We're off to get the kettle on!
