Quick Tip Monday!!!
Quick fact: after water tea is the most consumed beverage in the world.
I hear you…no…this is another article on the benefits of green tea.
Well, it was going to be until my husband went to the store and picked up a box of black tea instead of green tea which, in turn, put me in a mad scramble to learn if there were any benefits to these ostracized leaves.

The Benefits of Black Tea… as it Relates to Health
Black tea can help control or even prevent diabetes:
- Black tea has a significant amount of polysaccharides (carbohydrates) that work to decrease blood sugar absorption.
- Research shows that countries which drink greater amounts of black tea have the smallest occurrence of Type 2 Diabetes.
