A team from the National University of Singapore has found that drinking tea on a daily basis can actually be good for maintaining brain health. The researchers have recently found that tea drinking can have some positive effects like lowering the risks of cardiovascular disease. In the 18th century, Dr. Johnson had already claimed that tea can help improve an individual’s mood. According to lead researcher Feng Lei, the earlier studies have proved that tea can help keep the cognitive problems at bay in the older generation. The focus on effects of tea on human brain is the research that is being carried out along with the help of researchers from the University of Essex and University of Cambridge.
The tea-drinkers showed better interconnections in the brain regions compared to the non-drinkers. The well-structured connections in the various regions of the brain are known to help improve the brain’s functionality and also keep the cognitive decline chances lower. The bioactive compounds in the tea are known to ensure the long life of the brain. The green tea, fruit infusions, tisanes, oolong, and good old black tea do not have the same effect as that of the normal tea and consumption for at least 25 Years and 4 times a week is known to prove extremely fruitful.
Likewise, though the benefits of tea are being continuously researched on, the tea-based companies are facing a lot of problems due to the US–China tensions. The tariffs on China are known to have hampered a Portland-based tea shop. Steven Smith Teamaker has found its business to be nose-diving as it has to pay $80,000 for one type of tea that can only be purchased from China. The payment of 25% extra on the tea is found to have a huge impact on not only the imports but also on the entire business.
