Researchers have found that drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Since both water and tea replace fluids, tea has an advantage with it's antioxidants. Although it has been reported that tea negatively dehydrates, even the strongest cup of tea at the highest level of caffeine (which is difficult to make), the fluid intake is greater than that lost from the caffeine. Additionally, research has shown there are many health benefits from drinking tea which include: reduces the chance of having a heart attack, protects against tooth plaque, reduces the risk of cancer and helps burn calories, resulting in weight loss. It has been recommended that individuals drink between 2-3 cups of tea daily.
