A NIH research of UK tea consumers indicates that black tea has health advantages.


Higher tea consumption was linked to a marginally lessened risk of mortality, according to a prospective analysis of 500,000 tea users in the United Kingdom. The National Cancer Institute, a division of the National Institutes of Health, undertook a large-scale investigation of the possible mortality advantages of drinking black tea, the most popular kind of tea in the UK.

Asian communities, who often consume green tea, have been the major subject of previous research demonstrating a small connection between increased tea consumption and a decreased risk of mortality. Studies on black tea have produced a range of findings.

According to the results of the latest study, persons who drank two or more cups of tea daily had a 9% to 13% reduced chance of passing away from any cause than those who did not. A decreased risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease, ischemic heart disease, and stroke was also linked to higher tea drinking. Regardless of the desired tea temperature, the addition of milk or sugar, or genetic changes influencing how quickly individuals metabolize caffeine, the connection was seen.

The study suggests that black tea, even at greater consumption levels, may be a component of a balanced diet, according to the researchers. The results will be published on August 30, 2022, in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

The research included 498,043 men and women, aged 40 to 69, who took part in the extensive cohort study known as UK Biobank. The participants were tracked for about 11 years, and data on deaths was collected from a connected database maintained by the UK National Health Service.
