Is Drinking Tea Good? This Is What You Should Know

Health & Fitness

Originated from Southwest China, tea is one of the most popular drinks around the globe.

Though China is the main producer of tea followed by India and Kenya, guess what, Turkey turns out to be the largest tea-consuming country (reported by Statista.com, 2016).

Green tea, black tea, and oolong tea are the most popular, all of which are made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant.

Low in calories, tea makes up roughly 2 calories per cup (240ml).

Here’s what you should know when you drink tea.

NOT all teas cause Heartburn. It all depends on individual. To me jasmine tea upsets my heartburn especially if I drink it with empty stomach. Anyway, teas should be drunk HOT.
