Nutritional value of tea

On average, British people drink approximately 3 cups of tea a day with about 70% of the UK population drinking tea on a regular basis 1. On-going research is discovering that at this level of intake tea may offer significant health benefits.

In addition to tea’s contribution to overall daily fluid intake as well as the presence of powerful antioxidants called flavonoids, tea, when taken with milk, may also contribute to our daily intake of certain nutrients.

Tea taken on its own tea has no calories. However, when milk is added to it, as enjoyed by 98% of the population, it can provide a number of vitamins and minerals.

As well as contributing to fluid and antioxidant intake, drinking 3-4 cups of tea a day with milk, can provide certain vitamins and minerals, thereby helping to support overall health and well being.
